Desktop Cartoon WordPress Theme

Validation 4/5

The XHTML pulls up as valid code, but the CSS does not. It’s worth looking in to (probably more for the author’s technique than anything else) but all in all it isn’t the end of the world. The page works across all browsers.

Look & Feel 5/5

Everything looks the way it’s expected to look; but there’s a reason for that. The theme is basically a cartoon-ish background with the default Kubrick theme inside of it. Go on, take a look: nothing really changes once you see inside the white part of the page.

It’s too bad that the description (or subheading of the site) of the site isn’t worked into the theme in any way. It seems as though it could have been incorporated in some unique way. Oh well.

Theme Completeness 5/5

Like I said above, the theme is based off of Kubrick to such an extent there is no problem with completeness. It’s as complete as the Kubrick themeā€¦

Editability 4/5

See above description. One point deducted for not adding in anything custom; one gets the feeling that nothing was done to the code

Aside from the artwork there isn’t much to say about this one.

Closing Comments (18/20)

The theme passes our criteria, but it doesn’t really rank high on uniqueness. Opt for it if you really like the artwork, otherwise might as well stick with Kubrick.
