beginningW2 is a "Web 2.0 style" evolution from my beginning theme.
It has to be considered as another blank canvas for theme developers.
Use beginning as a starting point to help facilitate your theme development. Simply add background
images and you're done !

Same features as beginning theme :

  • 960 px centered fixed width layout (supporting screen resolutions of 1024 pixels and up)
  • multi-column support (0, 1 or 2 sidebars / auto resizing)
  • source-ordered (the content comes before the left and right sidebars in the XHTML source for
    increased accessibility and SEO)
  • supported features : logo, favicon, name, slogan, mission, comment_user_picture, primary_links,
    secondary_links, search_box
  • W3C standards-compliant : it validates XHTML 1.0 Strict / CSS 2.1
  • cross-browser compatible : works in Firefox, IE6, IE 7, Opera, Netscape navigator,
  • it is inspired from deco (header area) and Alek 2.0 (footer regions / both sidebars)

Changes compared with beginning theme :

  • both sidebars take place at the right (seems to be fashionable ?)
  • 14 regions (4 regions in the footer for blocks / 3 for floating "Headerblocks")

1.5 release : This is the final release (and the end) of this project. => You may
now have a look at FuelDeLuxe
