Link Love – Florida Citizens for Science Blog

March 27th, 2009

The Florida Citizens for Science Blog appears to be a blog that is related to the website who’s purpose is to defend and promote good science, especially in the public school classroom. Here is an excerpt from their blog’s about page:

This blog is used to keep track of the good, bad and ugly science news in our state and beyond. We tend to focus on educational issues. When a science class makes the news for doing something interesting or positive, I try to make sure a post goes up here about it. When a Florida scientist gets out into the community to promote education, I try to highlight it. Yes, we will certainly post all about the antics of those trying to promote an anti-science viewpoint, but we are just as much about praising the good things that happen in our state.

Many thanks for using the Beach House theme!

Link Love – Jokosher Audio Production Software

March 26th, 2009


One of the first sites that I started to see clicks coming from to the site was from which makes Audio Production Software. As you can see from the screenshot above they made some modifications to the Beach House theme which I think look great especially since the Photoshop files wasn’t available at the time. Here is a quick excerpt from their about page:

Jokosher is a simple and powerful multi-track studio. Jokosher provides a complete application for recording, editing, mixing and exporting audio, and has been specifically designed with usability in mind. The developers behind Jokosher have re-thought audio production at every level, and created something devilishly simple to use.

Many thanks to folks at Jokosher for using the Beach House theme!

Sites That Use the Beach House WordPress Theme

March 26th, 2009

link-loveThis site has always been a place where I previewed the WordPress Beach House them and provided news about updates that are made to the theme. As you can see the posts on this site are few and far between which isn’t so bad but I would really like to see this site used for something and up until now I did not know what that was.

See one of my favorite past times with this site is to see how people are using the theme for their individual sites. There are people that use the theme right out of the box (or zip file 😉 ) and then there are those that modify it to their liking. I am all for modifications for the theme and have even provided the Photoshop file for people to use to do so. Regardless of whether people keep the vanilla version of the theme or do heavy mods to it one thing they all seem to do is leave the links in the footer that link back to this site. In the Blogosphere we like to call that link love and I am very thankful for the love that I have been receiving.

Now it is time to give back. Read the rest of this entry »

It seems that the site is no longer up and therefore the download I used for the Beach House theme is not available. I have submitted the theme to the new theme directory and it will probably be a few days until it is approved and available.

I apologize for any inconvience that this may cause anyone but once the theme is approved it should be smooth sailing from there.

Wrong Version Number on Download File on Theme Viewer

May 1st, 2007

I recently got an email from Rob informing me that when you download the Beach House Theme from the WordPress Theme Viewer that the version number on the file that you download is incorrect.

The latest version of the Beach House Theme is 1.22 but the file name has 1.21 in it.

I have downloaded the file myself and have verified that it is the latest and greatest version.

Thanks Rob!
