    WP Coda is extremely smooth – I love it. I don’t know if I could find a good application for it – but hey .. it’s awesome so PROPS!

    WP Coda is excellent. With some design changes this theme could bring a product or service to life. Will keep this in mind for clients who photo demo site as well.

    I also give it PROPS!

    I felt like such a jerk, commenting on the last Theme Release offering’s lack of Demo links, so I wanted to give props for all the developers who DID include Demos this time around. There are some good themes here, and we can see that they’re good in action. Thanks!

    4Marilyns: huge copyright violation. Warhol’s artwork does not pass into the public domain until 2062 at the earliest.

    Register for a free theme (WP-Coda) sucks…

      I think you make take that minimal, 1 minute long effort, if you really want that theme ;)

      • Mattias (32 comments.) says:

        Disagree ;)

          I kind of agree with you. Though it is a testament to my laziness. It does only take a minute to register, but it’s a step that just annoys me.But, if the theme is worth the hassle why not, right? As long as I don’t have to go check my email for “confirmation” before I can actually do anything … that would piss me off. :)

    sorry, i only love StarrPress layout method, looks profesional!

    There are a couple reasons I ask people to register. One reason is I spent a full day developing this theme, so to ask for a minute of time from those who wish to download it is fair. I can then notify people when updates and new themes are available. Because I also write plugins, it is important for me to be able to notify users of updates to any bugs that may result in security issues. All-in-all, if it “pissed you off” to have to register to download it, it’s not worth downloading. No hard feelings :)

    only Star Press & typical-flexi-blue themes pass xhtml validation. Wp Coda seem like a popular choices but I dont like the scroll-bar inside the main content its kind of ugly (no harm intent) but its interesting too see popular design base on inspiration.

      The Atahualpa theme is perfectly valid XHTML, too, always was.

      ALL the errors you saw were related to (the contents of) ONE specific post, not the theme. That post in question was a test post with quotes and double quotes in the post title. This (and nothing else) is what the W3C validator displayed (all error were related to exactly this):

      …le=”A post with ‘quotes’ and “double quotes” to test the meta tags”>A post wi

      In other words W3C was thrown off by the fact that the quotes and double quotes were not html encoded in the “title” attribute of the link to that said post. That is something which is NOT caused by the theme.

      I removed that post and the theme is back to 100% valid XHTML.

      On a side note: Go ahead and check the CSS validity, too: It’ll shows 2 “errors” which I left in there on purpose. One is related to moz-borders, something WordPress suggests for rounded images borders in FF in their new sample image classes, it looks nice and works (and IE will dregrade gracefully). The other one is related to image opacity. Something that is going to be included in CSS3 but already works across all browsers.
