Zen Theme

Welcome to the peaceful ZEN Theme that offers individuals a unique style for their very own
blogging website. Zen has a much softer and lighter design which is very clean and
uncluttered for putting more focus on your page content.

My new Zen theme is ideal for personal bloggers and includes several features
to help you customize your website and blog to your own liking. Zen also
is not dependent on multiple scripts like so many other themes need,
so your website should load a lot faster! For more about Zen's
features, check out the list below...

So clean, so open, I'll buy it!

Thanks...I have been getting comments here plus others have been emailing me with positive comments about this theme. I wasn't sure if I was going to build it but decided too and glad I did.

Cool stuff. So I'm now using the Zen theme for my blog and I'm liking it so far. Perhaps in updates (or further devlopments, if you plan any) you might like to consider a few more extras for users. The one issue I'm having just now is that I can't find my breadcrumbs navigation after activating the theme. What do I do? All other functions are working out just fine, no sweat.

Good to hear... for breadcrumbs, this won't show on the front page but should for inner pages. Click on a post and see if they show up as they do on the live demo. For more "extras" for users, what kind of ideas did you have in mind?

Absolutely! You can use a static image or add in a slider if you have one that you like (although some may require minor style tweaks) but a long answer short, the demo image can be changed.

The one issue I'm having just now is that I can't find my breadcrumbs navigation after activating the theme. What do I do? And you're absolutely right - the theme doesn't seem to work well on IE6 (it won't even compromise at all, hehe). All other functions are working out just fine, no sweat.

Thanks again.

I haven't used the themes yet, but I'm already hooked! Well done.
However, I wonder if this theme allows for changing the header picture instead of the one used for the demo.

I love your themes, looks, functionality and price-wise. Now, if only it was IE compatible, and it comes with a slider, it would be my hands down go-to-theme.

Thanks for the comment...by saying IE compatible, it is for ie7 and 8, but not for 6 (which is a decade old browser). For a slider, I usually leave those out so the person has their own choice of what they want to use instead of being forced to use a particular one if coded in. However, I may soon be adding a precoded slideshow to my next theme with a couple options.
