This WordPress theme is the third version of the all-time famous and beautiful Rainbow Feather theme.
Rainbow Feather is a fluid one-column wordpress theme. As the name suggests the colours in this theme are rainbow-ish. From blue, baby blue, to yellow, orange, white, blue gradient and pink, barbie pink to evil pink. Cool features include: Fancy web2.0 like headings (wet graphics), custom badges â€œread onâ€ and â€œcontinue readingâ€, matching color scheme/palette, Login area that shows logged in users (well it shows you and gives you options).
This version includes many bug fixes and modifications, specifically it can now boast with unmatched cross-browser compatibility in regard to such a complex design and piece of WordPress code: Firefox, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 6 and Safari render the site identically. Another great feature is the added widget-support. This version of Rainbow Feather is now 100% widget-ready. This means you can drag & drop most widgets into the pink footer.
Improving the usability of this theme was a major goal that is why in addition to the changes described above, I have contacted many people to help me out with the localization of the theme. As by the time of writing this manual the Rainbow Feather v3 theme is available in German, English, Portuguese (Brazilian), French, Turkish and Romanian. Plans to release Dutch, Italian and Danish localized versions are in progress. I need to thank everyone involved and the 100+ mails I have received to date as well as the 70+ comments on the theme itself. It is you, the people, who have motivated me to put extraordinary amounts of time and love into this project and to love â€˜designing and programmingâ€™ again.
Here is a quick teaser video (Windows Media File) that shows how beautifully the widget-support is built-in, as well as the native Lightbox/Slimbox support, but also the cross-browser compatibility. Rainbow Feather is now looking all the same in every modern browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 6, Safari). Also, I added more php-fanciness to auto-cut long titles, a (currently) four pages manual and even more… please stay tuned and don’t hesitate to bug me/leave a comment.
Remark concerning the “possible” XHTML Invalidness: Rainbow Feather is XHTML Valid if it wasn’t for the fancy widgets. Don’t worry – it displays all fine in all major browsers, see screenshots blow (click to enlarge).
The theme page of the initial release is here (this page’s old content so to speak)
Widgets Screenshots = Same Design
Compatibility Screenshots = Same Design
Slimbox Screenshots = Built-in and works
Lightbox Screenshots = Can be used, too
RESOURCES I decided to put them on a separate page to not increase the clutter on this page (even more)
