    Rebuilt my long neglected personal website using Thematic. I usually never do much with it except make a new post every now and then. With this rebuild, I tried to push Thematic as far as I know how without going overboard. Used a lot of advice, tips, and tricks found on this forum. What I learned will help build better sites for future clients.

    I appreciate all the time and effort to keep Thematic and this forum active and as highly regarded as it is.

  6. Hi everybody,
    Finally i figured out to make my own child theme. It's name is "murekkep". I've used timthumb to get thumbnails. Also i started to use post classes with css. (short news on main page) Still have to customize sidebar link colors.

    Thanks for a great framework and support.

  8. I have spent six works hard at work on making this child-theme.

    Just want to say a big thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to make thematic possible. Thank you for the support of this forum too.

    For the last couple of years I've been working on a interactive, online/offline, public art project called ArtCard. Thematic has been my partner from the very beginning. I love you Thematic!

  17. Hi All -

    We just completed developing three corporate sister sites, all on one multi-site installation using Thematic child themes. WebFadds did development -- Mark Mahorsky, design.

    Cheers -- enjoying all the designs here. NOTE: We are also posting some at:

    Wow! You folks are really good!

    Just getting started here, but having lots of fun. Here's a work-in-progress as I learn more and more about the power of Thematic.


    Oh, my nephew really is a smart guy if you're hiring! ;)

  19. It's almost done! (once it's perfected it will be moved to

    I'm using the Map Categories to Pages plugin to put posts from the Hair, Beauty and What's Happening categories on their respective pages and some custom functions to add the featured image to the page/post title, also, google web fonts.

    Let me know what you think!

  20. Just finishing up a customers website.

    This was built off the Power Blog theme as a start. Using the Shopp plugin for the store front.

    I've recently finished this website for an entertainment company:

    Refresh the home page if you want to play the flash animation through.

    Thematic is a fantastic framework that you can pretty much let do its thing bar a little color scheming, font styling and graphics.

    I am making my first serious foray into Wordpress. I think Wordpress seriosly rocks.

    Anyway, I started a site, and planned on using the site to blog about Wordpress mods and plugins, as well as SEO.

    For the last few days I have been suffering theme paralysis/overload. I have seen so many themes, and frameworks, that my eyes glaxed over, so I had to stop for some gin. I have been drinking too much gin.

    I recalled that one of my wrox books (I am not buying anymore of them, but that is another story) mentioned some frameworks. After trying Sandbox (way too basic), and a couple of others, I decided to try thematic. So far so good.

    So... after a long winded psedo-explanation here is what I hope to do with thematic:
    Mod it like a wild horse. Of course, I am a noob, and a bit of a hack.. but what the heck. I can do PHP/MySQL, and it looks like the community here is "goldilocks" )not to big, not too small. So hopefully I can help you all out while I partake in your knowledge and experience.

    @jmastrom: I've gone through a similar process of finding the Holy Grail of all themes. My search ended when I found the Thematic framework.

    Just make sure you're using a child theme and NEVER editing the core WordPress or Thematic files. This rule of thumb is for your benefit.

    From what I can see, you're using Thematic as your actual theme. As a result, every time you upgrade Thematic, all your modified code will be overwritten.

    See here:

    Post back once you've made progress with your design.

  25. I think the problem rests with the asides styling. I seem to be able to highlight everything properly, but I'll take a look at it in a bit to see if I can fix

    For me....Thematic and this community have proven to be invaluable sources. I've learned more than I thought I didn't know!

    A little sandbox project I decided to tackle a couple of days ago would have been a real struggle for me a month or two ago.

    This may (or may not) help others. It might help me too if you tell me I'm crazy and did it all wrong! ;) Compass, SASS and Thematic. I'm a believer!

    What does Compass offer over Thematic's native column structuring?

    Posted 7 years ago #

    Compass/SASS is not a replacement for Thematic's excellent native style structures. It's not CSS - It's a tool for helping to create CSS - A CSS framework. The variables, math functions, mixens, etc. speed the process and (for me) just makes sense. I was struggling with an efficient way to create something like this: for a project I was working on. The supplied 3c-fixed.css may have been a better way to go, but I was already a little familiar with the method I used and Compass/SASS (and Thematic) made it relatively easy to develop.

    I hope that makes sense.

  29. Makes perfect sense. I was just curious the reasoning of using it.
