But I seriously have no idea why they went with Pink Lillies, it’s horrible very unique, making it next to useless as a template.
I understand if some wants to think… “pink? flowers? eek.” or whatever. Maybe it looks ugly to some or many people. But then again, it is all matter of taste.
I honestly didn’t think mine was going to win the first place. I am not saying that to be humble, but for the same reason some mentioned at Michael’s post- my design was not generic and it may not be something many people wnat to actually use. Especially guys! And from the viewpoint of flexibility, my design probably do not go very far. Although people are free to change the background image or colors to give it a personal touch.
I really admire Lex Design‘s templates and personally think non-generic templates have their places on the net.
I submitted the “Pink Lilies” template for WordPress CSS Style Competition.
I usually blog in Japanese so I set up this English page to say a few things to people who downloaded the template from alexking.org.
Please feel free to tweak with it. It’s kind of girly with flowers and pinks, but if you take out the background images and replace with a solid color or other image, you can change the whole impression.
I am distributing the template under a GPL license, so that’s how I want it to be used (I just followed the instruction…). A link to detlog.org (Japanese only) or blog.detlog.org (English, here) would be nice, too.
I am in the process of learning CSS. If you find any bugs or mistakes on my template, please let me know.
