Here's an old website of mine. Very simplistic, heavily based on the Ubuntu styling at the time.

it's not much to look at given how simple a lot of other themes are but I can claim that it uses zero javascript (except for the visitor counter) and the entire theme is in the HTML file of the page it's self, no external main CSS file... though I could probably set that up later.

but it is a theme completely designed from scratch.

was a lot of fun too!

all starting out with a basic 2 column layout and going from there.

note, this may change designs in the future but for the moment this is probably my best work so far.

but everybody's seen this already from my post on how to make the buttons work like they do. Big Grin

as for the graphic design side of things I did all of that in gimp with inkscape to adjust the graphics to scale well as .SVG files working under ubuntu 18.04.
I may re-design stuff later using my wacom stylus but I'm not super good at detailed hand drawn stuff yet... that's more my sister's skill set.

@ Thomas, I do like your theme being a linux user myself, I can even see how it sorta works since a lot of the code that went into that design also went into my own, or something similar.
it's a simple but elegant design, thanks for sharing.

@ everybody else, you know I actually looked into bootstrap, and it probably would have made things a ton easier when designing my page... however I sorta wanted to do things old school, but I can definitely see it's usefulness! Cool
