    Is the site that you linked itself in that theme? FWIW the ultimate link I followed to getting the theme doesn't actually work.

    No, it still doesn't work.

    If you want feedback on how it looks, can you just post some screenshots?

    that isn't the theme. that is one that comes with rapidweaver, and i have no clue on why my site is doing that. here is a direct link to the theme - http://tominatedsoftware.pxlart.net/sw/files/deepsea.rwtheme.zip
    BTW: you need rapidweaver

    Ok, I downloaded it and played around a bit. Not bad! I like the colors and the simple layout. Yes, it does remind me of the sea. You should put up a live preview so others can see it (especially those that don't have RW). You may get more feedback that way on design elements.

    i don't mind, as long as you don't make another theme from it.
    BTW: there is a tutorial that teaches you how to make rapidweaver themes

    nope, but i want to give wordpress themes a go (for my blog).

    No, I don't want to be a copy cat :eek: rather I want to know how this works.

    Your theme looks both cool enough and simple enough to understand. Yesterday evening I took a look to understand how those gradients are created, nice, just one line with the gradient color.

    And no, I didn't know there is a tutorial on how to create RW themes (I only recently bought it via MacHeist and haven't found time yet to really use it).

    Is the tutorial on the RW site or on another site ? I think I found one on the RWThemes website...

    BTW: i'm cool if you are just checking it out. the rwtheme files are bundles, so you can see inside them

    Nice color scheme, the layout could use work but your color choices and gradient work are pretty good.
