New theme

Feature: New theme
Developer: Nao
Target: everyone
Status: 100% (complete; details are updated as I feel like it.)
Comment:

Gone are Core, Babylon, Classic and Curve. None of SMF's themes had our preference. So we took the (pretty good) Curve codebase and built a new default theme upon it, using HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery.
Its main goal is to be easily extensible, which is achieved through the new Skins feature. See below, as well as the 'Forward thinking' section. Wedge's theme is both beautiful and has the cleanest possible code.

Yeah screenshots are a possibility. I'll do them after the feature list is done. Or so.

Guys -- feel free to comment on feature topics really. Now's your opportunity to tell us what you're excited about, what you'd like to have more details on, and even suggest possible improvements that aren't already mentioned in the descriptions.

Nao, honestly speaking, I am very much excited to see what is going inside there.

Ey up :)

I would want a blue based theme for my wedge site, I see from your FB screenshot Wedge is 'brownish'.
Is this customisable in some way or do I have to wait for a themer to do the job properly?

I did try to find if anyone else had asked this so, sorry if Im repeating an already answered question.
Thanks
Billy

You can alter it yourself, it's almost pure CSS.

And the way the CSS compiler works, it becomes very easy; I'm doing a blue design for Innovate, not Imitate when I move that off WordPress and that didn't take long to come out. I doubt I'll provide the actual style code (wanting to keep it relatively unique and all) but I'll certainly discuss how it works.

Thats very kind, thank you.
Dont worry about losing your uniqueness to my site..........  ::)
I have 60 odd members and know each and every one of them. We are a local club.... not a global enterprise like you boys.
Thanks for the offer.

It's more 'wine-ish', actually. Since it's called Wine ;)

Very easy to do in a clean way (i.e. that won't get overwritten when you update, and won't require you to build a new theme.)

You just create a custom.css file, put it into your styling folder, and add a few lines to rebuild the main color scheme for all parent objects (i.e. everything that was used as a parent by inherited classes.)
This should automatically be applied to your style.css and override it.
Also, if you need IE6-specific hacks in your code, just create custom.ie6.css, and so on.
