Ahh, Kirby. One of my favorite games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. That little pink guy could eat anything! Alas, this Kirby is not pink. It’s white, black, blue, and has square corners. One of the news bits that came out of the WordPress Developers Chat on January 7th is that Matt Mullenweg is spearheading the creation of the new default theme in WordPress named 2010. This means that the default theme will not be something created by a third party. However, Ian Stewart took the challenge upon creating a default theme and Kirby is his result. Kirby is clean, simple, and has good typographical elements, all the building blocks of a good theme. I encourage you to check out Ian Stewarts insight into the design process of this theme and then read the feedback he’s received.

If you are a premium theme developer or have an interest in WordPress themes, you may have heard that over 200 themes were removed from the WordPress.org theme repository. The reasons behind the removals have yet to be made public and there is more afoot than just the removal of themes. Over the course of the past few days, debates and discussions have been taking place on numerous blogs regarding WordPress, the GPL, themes and much more. Matt has agreed to appear on WordPress Weekly on Thursday at 1 P.M. EST to set the record straight so to speak. My goal for this special episode of the show is to get an explanation as to what happened with the theme repository, the new guidelines, Matt’s stance on the GPL, the entire issue of premium themes, what will happen with plugins and a whole lot more. This episode is really important […]
