- note 1: the samples are password protected: username: sitepoint password: sitepoint
- note 2: The "contact" link in the sidebar is an email address ie. a mailto: hrefHere are a couple of sites that serve a similar purpose:
- http://www.getfirebug.com/ firebug extension for firefox
- http://adblockplus.org/en/ adblock plus extension for firefoxThe color scheme should match the zindus logo.
As far as screen resolution and page layout goes:
- Optimize for 1024x768 but it should look fine at smaller or larger resolutions
- Use a liquid layout that stretches to the window size. It's ok to use fixed width for the sidebar, header and footer if you want but the center column with the content should be variable width.The Coding
The theme will be coded using valid xhtml and css - no tables. The sidebar should be widgetized.
The sample content (ie the home page, download and faq pages) should all look ok.
- WordPress theme
