I just comitted a private project of mine these last couple of weekends:

The 'web20' theme.

It features:
- No frames
- Partial XHTML 1.0 Strict compliance.
- Rounded corners (without images, by using Rico.Corner.round()).
- 'Silk icons' (from
- Web 2.0 colors (from:
- The new 'modern' menu (navigate by javascript).


It is kindof a parody of the latest Web 2.0 design trends and an experiment with setting up a frameless/XHTML theme in ATK.
I want to state up front that I am not a designer and as such it is not nearly as beautiful as the achievo_modern theme.

This new theme will be part of the upcomming mega (5.7?) release, however I would love for some people to test it and provide some feedback as to how well it works and how compatible it is with your applications.

To use this new theme, follow the steps below:

1. Update your ATK application with the ATK from the next nightly (24th of October 2006) which can be found here.
2. Copy 'atk/skel/index.php' over the index.php of your application.
3. Make sure to set the following configuration variables:
$config_defaulttheme = "web20";
$config_menu_delimiter = "<br />";
$config_menu_layout = "modern";

4. Browse to your pimped application :).

I must caution you however, I am pretty busy right now, so I may not respond in Ivo-like fashion, but I will try to adress all your questions and comments as soon as I am able.

It is also a project that I'm moving on from, eventhough I know a lot can still be done to improve it. So I would love for someone (a more talented designer?) to pick this up. I will always be more than happy to integrate diffs (preferably in Unified format) in to ATK if they can be of use to everyone.

Next project: The ATK Wiki!
