OK, I'm in!! You guys rock!

I was tired of hacking a bunch of theme parts together to try and get the look I wanted (and of course losing out on any upgrades because of those hacks). Trying to rework my (really old) custom theme for WP 3.0 menus finally pushed me over the edge. Went in search of a decent theme and I was quite willing to compromise to avoid the headaches of maintaining my own. Atahualpa gives me a great look out of the box, but I'm amazed how easy tweaking the theme can be. Plenty of buttons, knobs and sliders to set, but also the ability to add bits of custom code where needed.

2 days work and a few visits to the forums and here's what I've got ...

Awesome!

Hi, I love your front page. It was designed quite nicely. Would you mind telling me how do you get the latest news rolling and stop with mouse over? I am new to wordpress.

The Foxtrak site looks just sooo great! Good job!
Myself I have been working (and am still) on my webpage for myself- a Swedish standup comedian. I am getting towards what I want now. Using the rounded theme template as a base, and then changing it here and there.

My homepage

Next thing is to work on the menu, maybe even put it above the rest of the page and not under the header as I have it now.

My latest ATA:

Using the blog engine for "specials", post tags to separate the content by community... and if ANYone can tell me how to lose the dotted lines on the main nav - I've tried all kinds of stuff from the control panel to CSS inserts...

I'm a graphic designer/cartoonist. So I approached WordPress to see what I could learn and make it do from a "design" approach, and figured I would pick up the "tech" side of things as I went along.

Found Atahualpa, and from a design standpoint as-well-as learning, I can't imagine anything else out there that can compete. Love it.

Here is one of my sites.

http://blog.cartoonnoise.com/?page_id=95

I'm still a rookie, and still playing around with a lot of things. Have not done much with the side bars on this one. More of a study on what could be done with header and background. Eventually I going to redo all my sites with this theme.

Hi 49 monsters,

Really loved your site - loads of energy and really grabs you into wanting to read more.

I don't know if this is appropriate, but I did have one suggestion? Your background takes a little while to load, (my broadband is not lightning-quick unfortunately) and while it does, you have yellow text on white. It might be worthwhile changing the CSS in ATO> Style & configure LAYOUT> to : background: #000; instead of background: #fff; so it's black while the background loads.

Don't know what you think, or if this is something you'd want to do? Other than that, I am lost in awe of your graphics - they really are very cool!

Thanks for the feedback, anartist. I hadn't thought about speed. I'll try to find ways to speed it up. I wonder if it's because I've used a Google web font or if it's something to do with my web host (Dreamhost). Hmm.

Thanks for the comment FFrog.

If you are talking about the "Layout Container Style" I actually have the bckgrd set to none. So if I changed it to black, the background image would not show thru behind my post. But I do see the problem. Think I need to look at simplifying the background image so it could be much smaller and load faster. At this point this site has really just been a design study. It was before I got myself set up with a local host to do all my "playing".

I plan to make many changes once I really figure out what I want the site to do for me so thanks for the feed back.

Where you have the background code in ATO>Body text and links change to this for a black background (all I did was add the #000 at the beginning and a .jpg at the end of the image file name.
HTML Code:
background: #000 url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/BCKGRDImage2.jpg) repeat top left;
