I like surfing the web for new themes. Whenever I find a WP theme that I like, I try to test it even though I won’t use it on my blog. One of the themes that I like is Redoable 1.1
Redoable is a 3 column, widget and module ready free WordPress theme created by Dean J. Robinson. Redoable was built using the code of the popular WordPress theme K2 with a lot of modifications making it a totally different theme on it’s own. This theme’s sidebar is widget and module ready with over 20 different available modules to choose from. A default installation would display the calendar, categories, tags, blogroll and listen & watch modules as long as the necessary plugins are installed. You can add more modules or widgets to your liking.
Redoable has a feature called Sidenotes which is based on Matt’s Asides technique used in K2. You can set the category and number of sidenotes that you want to display from the Redoable options panel. Sidenotes are displayed in the homepage. Like in K2, you can setup the Extended Live Archives from the Redoable options pane and an option to add the Archives page. Redoable also supports Alex King’s Articles plugin.
Redoable is compatible for both WordPress 2.0.x and WordPress 2.1 installations.
The following plugins are supported by Redoable “out-of-the-box”. Just download them, add them to your plugins folder, activate and your good to go.
I like this theme inspite of it’s issues. Redoable has a simple and neat layout. It offers a lot of functionality and customization with widgets and it’s ready-to-use modules. Redoable also supports a lot of the commonly used plugins. The color scheme is okay but not appealing to some users. What I want to see is the Redoable theme to be available in a different color scheme or to have the option to change color schemes from the Redoable Options panel.
