New zBench theme on and the theme directory


Theme Wrangler Ian Stewart announced on the blog that zBench, a new theme from designer zwwooooo, is now available on and the .org Theme Directory.

About the new theme, Stewart says:

zBench has a lot of great features that make personalizing your blog a snap. Features like custom background images and colors, a custom header image, bonus widget areas in your site footer, and custom menus with beautiful drop-down effects. My favorite feature is probably the alternate layouts available in Appearance → Theme Options. With one-click you can have your site sporting multiple sidebars in several different configurations!

Give the theme a test run and, if you like, download it for yourself from the Theme Directory.
