  • New Theme

    I threw this theme together using the Toolbox theme by Automattic. The main thing about this theme is the background. So far in Firefox and Chrome this is a fully functioning dynamic background that you can change using the WordPress inbuilt custum background function. All the jiggery pokery is managed by CSS. Not fully tested […]
