New Golden Gray is now hosted at WordPress! Download NGG from WordPress.

New Golden Gray is based on William Pramana’s Golden Grey theme. Golden Gray was originally written for Alex King’s 2005 WordPress theme competition. In the last few years WordPress has undergone many changes and the coding requirements for themes has also changed. New Golden Gray is a rewrite of Golden Grey to meet those requirements and to exploit the new functionality of today’s WordPress, version 2.6, while preserving the aesthetic quality of the original theme.

New Golden Gray has been written to include:

  • Support for widgets!
  • Accessibility features: access keys and friendly text browser support.
  • A 404 page.
  • An archive page.
  • Support for GaMerZ’ WP-Print plugin.
  • Gravatars.

Trassare.com is now using the Winksite plugin to support the Wii and the DS Lite.  I do not have either of these neat toys so if someone out there does, please visit this site with your device and upload a screenshot for me.

I’ve been on an accessibility kick with my websites lately.  I’ve long supported the PSP with the Winksite plugin but today I decided to add activate the plugins for the other two game systems as well.  In the coming days, months I’ll be updating this site with accessibility controls to improve navigation and appearance on multiple browsers.
