Developer Description

As much as I love Pixelpost, I found that one thing was lacking: a rock solid theme made with web development best practices in mind. I found some decent ones but nothing I really liked enough to put on my own site. Therefore I decided to roll my own and then make it available for all Pixelpost users to use.


Dark Matter microsite: darkmatter-template.com.


  • A (hopefully) clean and classy layout
  • built in AJAX thumbnail browser
  • Excellent browser support
  • Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict output
  • Accessible
  • Easy to translate
  • Completely unobtrusive YUI powered Javascript behavioral layer
  • Fully functional without Javascript
  • Strict separation between markup, style and javascript

Make sure you read README.txt first before attempting to install.

Extra: Make sure you have exactly FIVE thumbnails in your photo stream of exactly 100 pixels wide. The theme is 'tight' when it comes to this. Also: Images larger than 800px wide are not tested nor supported with this theme. It will most likely break the pages!

License: Free for non-commercial use. For commercial use a license for Dark Matter Pro is required.

If you like this template, consider upgrading to Dark Matter Pro which adds tons of amazing features including a light version, AJAX commenting, an impressive amount of configuration options and much more!

    For an old fart who has really no idea what he's doing and who is completely new to this, I would like to thank both PixelPost AND Marco for making this beautiful template available AND figure-outable!! (the histogram add-on is still a bit above my head though)

    I'm very happy to leave the acknowledgements on the footer - I can only imagine how much time and trouble it must have taken to put this together - and will definitely be sending a donation to Marco.


    Thanks again to everyone concerned

    Micky G.
