Your readers can preview the comment before submitting. Ajax Comment Preview let you type in a comment and click “Preview”. The information you enter is sent back to the server via the snazzy XMLHttpRequest Javascript object. The server then decides how to format that information (where part of this decision is the filtration of the information through WordPress’ content filtration system – the real advantage of this method). The newly formatted information is then sent back to your browser where you can see exactly how your comment will look once you submit it.

If your browser doesn’t have all the clever bits necessary for all this, fear not. You can forego the comment previewing and just submit the comment as usual.

Visionary is a theme for news/magazine sites. It includes built-in video features that easily allow you to add videos to your site.

Features:

  • Customized front page to look like a news or magazine site.
  • Sidebar tabbed navigation through the use of a custom jQuery script (jQuery is packaged with the theme).
  • Embed YouTube, Google Video, and Metacafe videos easily with Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict. Or, use the Flash Video Player plugin to input your own videos.
  • Supports the Flickr RSS plugin.
  • Related Posts plugin support.
  • WordPress 2.3 tag-ready, but backwards-compatible with previous versions of WordPress.
  • Custom post information can easily be input through the use of a Visionary theme-specific plugin modified from the custom field GUI plugin.
  • Customized templates for every type of WordPress file, such as category.php and and archive.php.
  • Customized sidebars for different pages of the site.
  • Placeholders for ads. Great sidebar sizes for 125×125px ads.
  • Widget-ready sidebar, but I suggest not using widgets because this theme wasn’t designed for them.

gravatar.png

A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites. Avatars help identify your posts on web forums, so why not on weblogs?

Setting up gravatars on your weblog is easy, you don’t even need an account! Plugins are available for leading weblog software, and our tutorials will have you running gravatars in no time. To request a gravatar from our servers, you simply add an image to your comments area with an “src” attribute that points to our gravatar image generator and includes an MD5 hash of the commenter’s email address. Since all gravatars are rated with an MPAA style rating, you can restrict your site to show only gravatars whose content you are comfortable with.

WPDesigner is the personal WordPress and web development playground of Small Potato (main blog author). A pre-dystopia for fellow design-loving small potatoes to evade the gravitational pull of hot oil, WPDesigner has been a home for free WordPress themes since May 2006.

Beside boasting his arrogantly promoted collection of humble WordPress themes, via Jedi Mind Tricks, Small Potato (SP) occasionally materializes intangible step-by-step and layman-termed WordPress tutorials out of thin air.

Currently, the potato head is busy slaving away at launching a web hosting service for high traffic WordPress-powered blogs.
