I’ve submitted a theme for the Wordpress 1.5 Theme Competition, squeeking in before the deadline. It’s called Greenwood and it’s based on the design for my family history blog. Now that it’s up with other people’s content populating it I see lots of bugs, but it’s probably too late to fix them now.

I’m impressed with Wordpress’s modular structure, allowing you to install plugins and themes very easily. It’s not quite the true separation of presentation from content that an XML/XSL environment gives you, but it’s very workable.

The competition has brought in an amazing variety of designs (105 at the moment). My favourites are Benevolence (maybe a reaction to the four inches of snow we’ve had the last couple of days) and ChinaRed (dramatic colours, but very clean).
