    I am working on a extended version of Striped, the popular one-column WordPress theme I released in March.

    The version I am working on is targeted especially for Wordpress MU users, the theme is highly customizeable through an extra presentation tab in the WordPress administrator interface. Fx. by using colourmod's easy color picking utility, it is now possible to change every single color in the theme.

    Current features:

    • Changing all colors in the theme
    • Changing content width (fluid width in % or fixed width in px)
    • Changing theme font from a drop-down box
    • Changing background- and headerimage by typing in an URL to a picture
    • Widgets enabled (4 "sidebars")

    Download it at http://theundersigned.net/2006/05/stripedplus-beta-1-released/

    I want to make more themes targeted more for WP MU users, that gives the bloggers more options of changing their blogs look and feel.

    This seem has it all, I think, I haven't come up with additional feature-ideas, nor received any requests. I received one bug report, and it has been fixed for the final release.

    Anyone tried it on their MU sites?

    I tried it on a regular WP site - concept is great - one issue is that the images did not work when I referenced a background and header URL.

    It could also be interesting to use it as a front end on an MU site.

    I just installed this on my site and I must say it is AWESOME. Don't have any feedback from users yet, but my initial results were WAY COOL. :D I'm impressed (and I'm old and jaded, so that's saying a lot).

    How hard would it be to add the same functions to existing themes?

    Oh, also if you're looking for a feature suggestion, how about the ability to move the sidebars aroudn in a theme? I've done it with a simpler Options page on a few themes I adjusted in the WPMU theme pack. It does depend on floats though.

    Thanks for the response :) Actually two more themes ive created has these options:

    http://themes.wordpress.net/columns/2-columns/715/water-10/
    http://themes.wordpress.net/columns/1-column/476/roundflow-10/

    To easily implement a theme options page to an existing theme I have created a snippet and written a guide:

    I hope it answers your questions :)
