I have maybe a weird, but pretty important (for me) question.
And if its possible, i would like to Kriesi answer on this (maybe not in personal), but at least i would like to hear "quoted" reply from him is its possible.
So here is the deal. I run a log\magazine website which is currently based on "Corona" theme. (also got few other sites on Propulsion, Flashlight and Habitat). Corona - is pretty much a great theme in general terms, but anyway its a theme for a single\dual blog. And it not very suitable for a real "magazine".
On the other hand you guys have a pretty descent NewsCast theme. Which is superior for big blogs or whole magazines.
But there is one little problem which really concerns me NEWSCAST theme is pretty much old.
Date of release: March of 2010.
Again on one hand its great.
On the other hand - Kriesi invent a loot of great and cool features in his later (post-NewsCast theme period :-) ) days.
Plus, NewsCast was written having "WordPress 2.0" in mind..... and todays version is 3.0+.
So, i really want to migrate my website from Corona into something more "BIG". Into some "theme" which allows my blog magazine to continue to grow. But, i dont wanna migrate on the outdated theme really. And i also dont want to migrate onto some NON-Kriesi themes :-)
In one of the interview which Kriesi gave (a year ago?) to some online magazine, he said that "hardest part in my work, is to catch the first idea - of what the next Theme will be "about"".(c)
1) If its not the biggest commercial secret of all times - do you guys have any plans to create a new Theme which will be dedicated to big blogs (magazines) ?
2) If there is no such theme currentlly in the development right now. Maybe its a nice time to launch such thing?
A re-written, re-styled "NEWSCAST 2.0" maybe?
PS: Guys, am i alone is interested in updated NewsCast?
