    Are there any tutorials on porting other themes to use Thematic.
    Arthemia would make a really great theme port and add another magazine layout to the stable.

    Here's another page with a breakdown of what Arthemia includes:

    To port something to Thematic, would you essentially separate the structure portions of the theme from the functionality, and the functionality would need rebuilding using Thematic methods, that sound about right?

    Thanks,
    T

    Wow I really hate to reply to my own posts, a lucky Google turned up this recent tutorial though. Just so happens it was referencing the Freemium theme (available for download there) as a child theme for one and the same Thematic.

    Looks like the row to hoe then heh?
    Giving it a shot when I have time, but for Arthemia.
    I like how they referred to it as a "Clone theme" for Thematic!

    Did you ever have a go at porting arthemia? I have used this theme and it is really nice imo. Would be good to have a thematic version...

    I have had a go at porting arthemia over today. I have actually managed to get quite a lot done on it. If anyone wants to assist clean up the code and put lots of comments onto the css, then I'm happy to send the stuff to you.
