Idea: WordPress Theme for Audio & Video Podcast Websites

Update (December 16, 2008): Thank you everyone for expressing such a great interest in this theme. I am hoping to release it early next year (2009). If you would like to support the development, donations are more than welcome.

Update: I have posted the first HTML mock-ups of this WordPress theme.

Here are a few sketches of a WordPress theme that would be ideal for video/audio podcast websites and blogs.

Here’s the deal — if 20 people who are currently producing a video/audio podcast leave a comment saying “I would so want to use it for my podcast’s website/blog.” then I will make it and release it for free (under GPL) as a response to TV.Elements ($50) and Video ($39).

    hehe

    For sure we would use it.
    We actually use our system podcast for http://www.ezoneonline.com.br/podcast.php
    but we also want to grow it and make it as a separate part of the stuff :D

  2. nahnu says:

    i registered nahnu.tv for these themes :p

  3. Miks says:

    I think this one looks lot better than our theme on podraide.lv. So:

    “I would so want to use it for my podcast’s website/blog.”

  4. Kaspars says:

    kaiserlino, nahnu and Mik, I wasn’t expecting even a single person to comment on this so thanks a lot for your feedback. If continues at the same pace, I better go back to my HTML/CSS drawing board.

    “I would so want to use it for my podcast’s website/blog.”

    That would be great for my upcoming blog.

    Thanks!

  6. steffy says:

    sure I would use it for sure

  7. m-alo says:

    I’m currently not podcasting, but if I were, I would definitely consider using your theme.

  8. Kunduz says:

    I like your work, clean and artistic style, so I’d like to see other themes also..

  9. Robin says:

    “I would love to use it for my podcast’s website/blog.”

    Currently this is the 9th comment. Can i post 11 more?

  10. Kaspars says:

    Robin, sure you can, if you are currently producing/hosting/co-hosting two or more podcasts. Just give a link to those shows.

  11. kaiserlino says:

    BRAVO !!!

  15. Warren says:

    I would absolutely use this for my video blog.

    (makes me wish I didn’t pay $$ for video elements)

  16. I would LOVE to have access to this specialized audio and video WordPress theme. I run a website that provides free P-based blogs especially for media creators and will be adding specialized themes shortly.

    Please, please, make this theme. I would happy to promote your site or otherwise help you.

  17. Milt Lee says:

    Yes, I can’t wait to use it. Thanks for a great looking theme.

  18. amber says:

    “I would so want to use it for my podcast’s website/blog.”

  19. George says:

    This would be perfect for my video blog.

    Yes, please publish it!

    Thanks,
    G.

  20. Francis says:

    Oh I want it, I want it! My video blog would be 100% better.

    Add my vote.

  21. Kaspars says:

    kaiserlino, Miks and Adam W. Warner seem to be the only people who actually run their own audio/video podcasts (judging by the provided URLs).

    I am really looking forward to the remaining 17 people who currently do produce a podcast, and theme will be yours.

    So if you did leave a comment without the URL, please post it again.

  22. Hchicha says:

    Hell, yeah! I’ve been searching for more than enough time for a decent podcast theme, and this is the best I’ve seen.

  31. Kaspars says:

    Thank you everyone. It looks like I’ll have to do it.

  32. Yaaaaay!!!!!

    Kaspars, I just want to give you a heartfelt THANK YOU. I’m excited to be able to develop with this theme!

  33. I would so want to use this for my podcasts which should be ready to go in September.

  34. Looks like a terrific theme! I would ask for a deep footer area too to list archives and categories, and hopefully it would accept widgets in the sidebar so we could run extra things in there.

    Thank you!

  35. florent says:

    “I would so want to use it for my podcast’s website/blog.”
    I change it for september. All my podcasts tell about employement, jobs and hire.

    This is an exemple here :

    Great looking theme – I’d definitely be interested in using this theme for my podcast/website/blog. :)

  38. Milt Lee says:

    I actually left the url for my newest blog. It’s not totally active yet as I want to use your theme for it. I didn’t realize that you wanted a URL for a blog that I’m doing all the time. Here that one is: http://hollowbonefilms.com

    So when will the theme be available?
    thanks,
    Milt Lee
