Totally agree Les, they are much harder.  I really hate the use of that main_block image, to me it's so difficult to work out what part of it does what. I tried years ago to make my own, and vowed never to try again. lol..

After playing with the 2.1 themes I now have hope that I can achieve something usable.

Your theme. You did good there mate.  :rgton

Looks great Les.
So it's easier to make themes in 2.1? Well, that's useful progress then !!!
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

Skhilled

Yes, for me it is easier. It first I wasn't too sure but most edits can be done with css instead of both html/php files and css files.

don't look on The Admin Zone, people say the opposite there.

A lot easier as far as I am concerned.

Ditto.   

Although for me it's really a recolour job than actually making a theme. But yes finding I can do things with 2.1 themes that I couldn't with 2.0  Getting rid of that bloody main_block image was the best thing they could have done.

Maybe I should share my CSS changes that make my theme mobile friendly.

Any chance of you finishing it..I like the 2.1 coffee skin, I think the 2.0.15 coffee skin would look great also.
