As promised, Zotaku is back with a new layout which was coded by me. It is my first time building a theme using a framework – I have never really coded much things in my entire life since I am always downloading a specific theme and tweaking it according to how I want the layout to be. As such there are always limitations when I am looking to change to a new theme.
So Zotaku hasn’t had a change of clothes in forever, until today. Very proud to have completed the new layout after 5 late nights ;_;
We have a small banner the last time, so I decided to go for a more “WOW” banner, making it big. Of course I received some criticism that the banner is too overwhelming so I have decided to tone down a bit by using another picture for the banner.
The banner picture you see at the top was originally this:
Cropped quite a bit at the sides; so hopefully it won’t be an eyesore for some folks >_<.
As v3.0 is a responsive theme, this means reading on your smartphones or smaller resolution screens is okay! The only con is that the reader won’t have a nice-looking banner. Oh well, content is more important no matter the screen size? ;)
Being fond of the grid layout I see in some themes nowadays, I decided to play around with the codes to get the grid layout. They are only available if you browse through the AUTHORS, TAGS or CATEGORIES links. Was perhaps going to have a grid layout for the main page but decided it would be boring as I need to convert to a simple banner.
I have also linked Facebook/Twitter to Zotaku so it will be easier and faster to share the love frequently now. No more MIA from me.
It’s been ages since I last looked at CSS. It was extremely tedious to design a menu bar last time and now it is so simple to create your own menu bar! WordPress sure has evolved!
Anyway I hope you enjoy the theme I designed and I will still be tweaking some minor stuff but I don’t think you will notice ^^.

Wow zen, this layout looks amazing! I’ll have to try this on the different smart phones we have around the office to see what it looks like now. ^^
