WordPress Theme: BloxPress

Repost This

It is not ready yet, but it is quickly getting there. A new modular Ajaxified WordPress theme called BloxPress

BloxPress started out as to be yet another theme for my WordPress powered website.

My vision was to have a fully customisable layout like seen on MyYahoo or NetVibes.com and maybe some neat effects here and there… On my first attempts I failed badly and thought I will never be able to make it, but then I stumbled over the brand-new script.aculo.us Web 2.0 JavaScript.

I began building on it and had such quick success that i could immedietly start to recreate all the common functions within the WordPress loop. The first thing i put in was the drag and drop function and shortly after the expand and collapsing of the list items. Since I had planned to have more features like “just that”, I digged a lot deeper into the code…

While evaluating all the features I had planned to have in my theme, and without doing it intentionally, I created something totally different. The question that had driven me was: “How I should make people become able to customize the complete layout and save it for reuse, when I have a static layout which is loaded every time?”
