WordPress.com idea: Nothing but custom CSS page template

For those who have the custom design upgrade enabled on WordPress.com, it would be neat if we offered a bare, stripped to the basics page template you could style to your hearts delight. For instance, if I do a year in review post, it might be nice to prepare a unique design for that. Dustin Curtis is notable for producing custom layouts for each post.

Obviously you can do this now, but you first need to reset a lot of design first. If you switch themes, there’s no guarantee your resets will still work.

What about Toolbox –> http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/toolbox/

This also reminds me of the first book I every bought on web design it was called the Zen of CSS design and it introduced me to the http://www.csszengarden.com/ , which really showed me how powerful CSS only changes could be.

Same idea. Spittle and I are working on a sexy new theme, so it’d be nice if I only have to style a subset of the pages 🙂

Ah, I get it now. That would be pretty neat. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with.

+1000 to this. I’ve been mulling over how there’s been little innovation in the way we present content.
