As with a lot of software designers/developers you have used a default template (refresh) that is more complicated then need be (style wise)IMO ...the simple white and blue style used here would be great as default thus allowing users like myself to create our own designs far more easier.

To be honest I assumed it was as most do use the default for there sites (vBulletin for example) allowing potential users to see exactly what their getting but even your demos use your design and not "Refresh" and so I feel its a little misleading (though the script core is what we are mainly after).

With all that said let me get to what I was posting for in the first place...is there any chance of you releasing your style to the public as I for one would be happy to get my hands on it as its such a minimal skeleton design...:)

please do not take this a me moaning but more of constructive critasism...:)

you're quite right, and I've been meaning to do this for ages, but have been too lazy/distracted to get around to it.

there's a basic theme in Jojo already which is specifically set up as a skeleton for tweaking - 2 Column - but it could do with one that's as basic, but more aesthetically pleasing.

I have one that I've been refining, similar to the Jojo theme, that I'll clean up a bit and commit. The styling is pretty clean, but it does include the code for including a search box, language dropdown, article teasers etc that can be commented out as necessary.

The Jojo theme is actually more complicated than it looks, with a lot of extra code in there for rearranging the home page, digging out the content for the sidebar and so on.

I totally agree with SomeOne's excellently worded post requesting you release a minimal theme similar to the style of your own web pages (which I love the look of). Indeed, more themes would be welcome full stop. I like Jojo's functionality 'out of the box' compared to most other CMS I have tried. I am not currently able to figure out all your coding - and I probably should stick with WordPress - but I really like Jojo for some reason.

By the way, when are you going to release an official upgrade? A few months ago, I think you said in a July.
