Recently, while researching for a gig I want to support, I checked out the availability of WordPress templates for the latest release of the program.
Templates for WordPress have evolved quite a bit since I started using the platform in November '04. With most of my WordPress blogs [have about 4], I maintain the original template structure, which is often a pain in the neck when upgrading to the latest release of the program.
When supporting custom WordPress installations, I always install the latest version of the program and use the default template structure for the release. This to ensure future updates are achieved with ease and in most cases can be performed by the client who may not be interested in the internal workings of WordPress.
To ensure I use the latest template structures, I locate WordPress "plain templates" and add the client's style requirements. I have been using a Template called PlainText to achieve this. An example of this template using the main page of my personal blog, is found here.
Last night, I found a more recent template that I think others may like for their own experiments. The template is called-- Constructor.
