This contest is for the design AND CODING of a WordPress theme for Phoenixrealm SEO BLOG
The Design should incorporate all the functionality of the current bog, with the exception of the search box in the banner, instead the banner should have the space for a 468 x 60 banner ad.
The winning design will be clean with corporate professional feel. It also needs to have a visual association with the following site http://doublespark-seo.co.uk/?color=blue maybe with the same blue and gray colour scheme and amending the logo to suit. I would also like the blog to incorporate a portrait photo.
I like the way problogger.net has three boxes at the top for links to extra pages, I would like something similar for the following:
1) SEO articles
2) Web design articles
3) Popular posts
The theme will be coded using XHTML and CSS without a table in sight, and will of course validate. The three column layout should remain the left and right columns being of a fixed width and the centre column being a fluid width. Both sidebars will need to be widgetized.
To be considered for entry each contender will need to provide examples of two current blogs that they have coded.
Current Plugins in Use
1) Brians Latest Comments
