Mixtape: Free WordPress Theme

Mixtape is a lightweight, one or two column, widgetized, WordPress theme designed completely with CSS, sans image graphics. Similar to muxtape.com, Mixtape is ideal for sharing/listening to music online. This theme utilizes a combination of Sandbox — a valid XHTML / CSS selector rich WordPress environment, Tripoli — a generic CSS standard for HTML rendering and SoundManager 2 — a new Javascript API that utilizes Flash audio capabilities.

Mixtape was developed for WordPress 2.5+, but it should also work in 2.3.+. It has been tested mostly in Safari and Firefox but it should also maintain its look in IE 6 and IE 7 outside of a few font discrepancies. It has basic gravatar support and comes with a sample Child Theme that uses a different color scheme. This marks my first stab at developing a theme for WordPress so please let me know of any bugs you may find in the comments.

Peep the Demo or Download the latest release. Make sure to read the documentation, before you install and activate it. Enjoy

    Firstly, I’d never heard of Tripoli before. I’ll definitely be using it in the future, so thanks for mentioning it.

    Now then, as for the theme; I think it’s fantastic. It’s a peculiar layout, but I think it works. I foresee many music blogs in the future.
