WP Theme Review: Pink Adaptations



Pink Adaptations is a simple but elegant 2 column, fixed-width WordPress theme created in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month which is the month of October. This theme was designed by Charity Ondriezek of Design Adaptations.

This is a very simple, 2column fixed-width theme, designed for resolutions of 1024×768(+). Employing only five graphics, and extremely light-weight CSS (it took far fewer lines than I thought when I first started playing in Photoshop), it loads very quickly and has plenty of options for content display and/or arrangement of affiliate badges, etc.

My intention was to make this theme easy to implement on any blog that wanted to go pink this year, by leaving out any heavy code customizations or features that could be problematic to implement. In other words, it requires no plugins, but should play nice with any you’re using. As always, it’s widget-ready, and XHTML/CSS valid.

Basic Features:

  • 2 columns
  • Fixed-width
  • Bottom bar
  • Widget-ready
  • XHTML and CSS compliant

My Take:
If I could have seen this theme earlier, I would have probably used it to join the Pink for October and honor Breast Awareness month. Aside from the good design, what I like about Pink Adaptations is that it’s code is very lightweight and can be easily customized. The sidebar has lots of space to display all sorts of content and also ideal for affiliate marketing and banner ads. It works out of the box and doesn’t require any plugin to work.

While I was testing this theme in different browsers, I noticed a little flaw or bug while viewing it in Opera. The post entitled “Theme Showcase” has three comments and in Opera, instead of displaying under the first comment, the second comment was right beside it. It displayed fine in Firefox and Internet Explorer. Inspite of that, I still think Pink Adaptations is a very nice theme and I give it a 4 out of 5. If you plan to join and support the Pink for October initiative, then this theme is definitely one of the WordPress themes you should consider using.

    @Charity – You’re welcome! Didn’t expect you to drop by but I appreciate it. I’m sure you’ll be able to fix that bug since it’s not a major one. Looking forward to future WordPress themes from you and more power! :)

    Hi John, thanks for the mention! I wasn’t aware of the bug in Opera, but I’ll look into a fix for it now that it’s been pointed out. Darn, just when I thought I had tested everything so well… :)
