Preliminary Sketch of Mimbo 2.0

Last month, I released a magazine-style theme for WordPress called Mimbo. I’m excited to say that since then there have been over 500 downloads and at least 100 working Mimbo-enabled sites spotted around the web. I’m currently sketching some layout ideas for version 2.0 (click to enlarge):

Some key features for the upcoming version include:

    A widget-enabled sidebar
  • More column flexibility
  • Less restriction on image dimensions
  • Space for advertising
  • Navigation for flat pages
  • A more compact way to feature Archives

I’ll continue with sketches for another few weeks, then hopefully build the theme by November. Feedback has been indispensable so far, please keep it coming. I think compared to the old one, version 2.0 will suit the needs of a lot more people.
