I’ve been focusing on building various channels for pushing community content, since I don’t want to force people into one that doesn’t suit them. I’ll post more on that later. But what’s kept me from developing this site as I want is a frustrating inability to find a theme that fits my goals.
This needs to be a community-oriented site, supporting the three areas in which I’m involved (Make, Windows Phone, and Qt in no particular order). But I’m unable to find a ready-made WordPress theme, free or premium, that works. I’ve tried several dozen with varying degrees of dissatisfaction.
I don’t have time or skill to develop anything, nor can I afford to pay for custom development, so that limits the possibilities.
Essentially I’ll need management of events, developer resources, contests and communications. I’ve found plugins I believe will support those but I still need a site framework that does.
