Cherry Blossom Theme 1.0 Released

Screenshot of the Cherry Blossom theme for Drupal

More than 5 years ago now, I sat down with Raincity Studios' Mark Yuasa to discuss the redesign of this blog, Just a Gwai Lo. It was springtime in Vancouver, and the cherry blossom trees around the lower mainland were blooming, so I suggested that as the visual theme for the blog. Then powered by WordPress, Mark delivered two designs in a few weeks and a few months after choosing the overwhelmingly pink comp, I switched to Drupal, bringing the theme along with me.

It's now time to release the theme to the general public. If you visit the Cherry Blossom theme project page on Drupal.org, you can install a Drupal 6-compatible version of the theme. I put up a demonstration site so that you can see the theme in action, as I've long moved onto another theme (currently the Deco theme). One known issue that I'd like help with is an alignment problem with Internet Explorer 6, after fixing I'll release a 1.1 version.

Today is my last lunch, and if I understand the weekly routine, it's takeout day. Sorry I didn't take more photos of food on my trip. Food isn't really big enough a deal for me to get strange glances from Chinese people by hovering my phone over it.

LOLZ richard, do whatever works for you as always :)

for what it's worth the chinese people i know in vancouver (who are all southern chinese so probably not a relevant data point) think it's weird but regard my relentless cameraphone shots of the food with bemusement!
