WP Theme Review: Rainbow Feather



Here’s a beautiful and colorful WordPress theme from C. Julian Klewes of h4x3d.com.

Rainbow Feather is a fluid one-column wordpress theme. As the name suggests the colours in this theme are rainbow-ish. From Blue, baby blue, to yellow, orange, white, blue gradient and pink, barbie pink to evil pink. Cool features include: Fancy web2.0 like headings (wet graphics), custom badges “read on” and “continue reading”, matching color scheme/palette, Login area that shows logged in users (well it shows you and gives you options). This is only visible though if you have new user registration on. Also, a cool RSS-Feed graphic.

The author only indicates one column but actually it has a sidebar that is located on the left of the page and also has a bottom bar that you can use to display links, archives or any data that you want to show. Rainbow Feather has a fluid width so you won’t have to worry about screen resolutions.

Btw, I tested the Rainbow Feather on Mozilla Firefox, Flock, Opera and Internet Explorer 7 and it works just fine.

My Take:
I know you’ll agree with me that Rainbow Feather is easily one of the best designed WordPress themes around. The design, custom graphics and gradients make it smooth and soothing to the eye. Some may not like the colors used but if you have some Photoshop skills, you can easily change that and customize it. This theme is widget-ready for all you widget lovers out there.

The author has previously released other WordPress themes, but IMO Rainbow Feather is his best work so far. I give the Rainbow Feather a 4.5 out of 5.

    @jez – No worries. Yeah, I saw the note on your site about you having a vacation. Btw, belated happy birthday! :)

    You’re welcome! I like to feature and promote WordPress themes that work and are well designed and this theme definitely has both.

    Thanks for the comment and for dropping by! :)

    @jhay – Same here. For me, beautiful theme is useless if it doesn’t serve it’s purpose, right?

    It’s a nice looking theme, but I’m looking for a balance between form and functionality. :wink:
