    I know, I know. I change themes as often as I change my socks, But I've quite proud of the work I've done adapting Branford Magazine theme as a gateway to my citizen journalism site: Blog Peoria. There are a couple glitches that I know about (the screenshots dont load on on the "Themes" Page, but it does pretty much what I want it to do, promote community-based citizen journalism in Peoria.

    Much better :)
    The Now Playing area looks like it needs some CSS work though.

    My home theme actually started out as Revolution Sport. Looks nothing like it now :D

    The now playing area is actually rendered by the AHP Sitewide Recent Posts plugin.

    If anyone has any suggestions for something different, let 'er rip.

    No, that's a pretty good plugin. :) Klark was just talking about formatting it prettier.

    I'd like to format it so that the Gravatar is larger ..

    Modify the ahp_recent-posts plugin where it's pulling in the avatars. Look for the number 24. :) make it bigger.

    It's splogs that I have to worry about. Once the 2.7 upgrade is complete, I'll hide my login page.
