        Hey guys, my name is Ryan and I'm the creator of Flexibility Theme. I saw a bunch of you as new registrations yesterday so I figured I'd come over and see what all the hype was about.

        The theme is incredibly customizable and you can use your own graphics if you want (to answer a question above). I've included quite a few on the website, and if you use the custom WP Easy Uploader plugin that I included, then you can upload the new graphics right into the images directory.

        Try it out and let me know what you think! It's really a work in progress as I find out what options are needed and which are overkill.

        Thanks for visiting.

    I don't particularly care for the rollover tabs on the header navigation. It just reminds me of the 90s.

      Well, wow! and Cor!!! great find...

      So I downloaded this about half hour ago and got it on my blog, have been going through everything, lots to figure out. Has anyone seen yet whether we can use an image of our own in the header?

      I have been on the download blog and seen the wonderful header graphics and whatknot he has there but I can't see anywhere it says we can use an image of our own.

      Anyone figured that out yet?

      Thanks

        Sue, to use your own header image, the easiest way would be to download one of the sample images (for sizing), create your own header and save it as header-bg.png. Upload it to the theme images directory. If you use the included WP Easy Uploader plugin, there is an option to upload directly to your images directory. When you upload the graphic, it will overwrite the default image and be live immediately.

        If you use a 24 bit png with alpha transparency, any transparent areas will allow the header background color you specify to show through the header graphic.

        Hope that helps!

          Also thanks to everyone else who offered advise

          Cheers

    Still far too busy with other things here to have done anything beyond installing it, but at the top of the theme options page it says....

    If you need to upload images (headers, RSS icons, search boxes, backgrounds or header spans) to the Flexibility theme images directory for customizing the theme, I highly recommend installing the version of WP Easy Uploader that comes with the Flexibility theme. I have modified the plugin to include a path directly to the Flexibility images directory. This allows you to upload files directly to the images directory from within WordPress without the need for an FTP client.

    It looks like using an image of your own wouldn't be difficult.

    I really like the theme, but didn't have much luck with it.. It works okay, but takes quite a while for pages to load, almost like they re-loaded or re-freshed. Much slower than the theme I was using.

    Or maybe I didn't mess with it enough.

    Curious if others tried it yet.

      Ron,

      One thing to keep in mind about this theme, is that every option that you can set is stored in the options table in the WP database. So yes, there may definitely be a performance hit depending on your hosting server. The stylesheet for the theme has many dynamic fields that are called when a page is loaded.

      The only way around this is to get your theme settings how you like them and then create a static stylesheet for your theme. But then you lose all function in the options page. So I guess the trade off for being able to customize the theme is a performance hit, but again it will depend on the speed of the server your blog is hosted on.

        Hey there, thanks for stopping by.

        I sure hope my post did not seem like a knock on your theme. Far from it, it is a awesome theme, and yes it has so many options, more that I've seen in other themes. Just took a while to fully load.

        Thanks for the suggestion, thats a great idea. I was looking forward to using it on a new blog I was doing. I'll try like you said..

          I am going to create some free headers for this theme and I will post a link tomorrow for them. I have been messing around with this them and it is really fun to play with.

          At least My scattered brain enjoys it!

    @ Ron - I didn't think it was a knock, it's a fact actually. Anytime your pulling from a database it's going to take a bit more time that just loading static HTML. That was one concern I had as my options page grew. I actually threw out quite a few options and just stuck with the ones I felt would give users the most flexibility.

    @ Jeremy - I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I viewed your portfolio and you do some really nice work. Maybe some of your headers could end up as downloads on my site?
