The two latest templates, Variant Portal and Variant Rounded, have been available for almost two weeks now. They have been downloaded more than 1600 times since the release and live websites built from the designs are starting to appear. I have got a lot of positive feedback, as well as useful comments on missing features and possible improvements for both templates. I have made some updates to Variant Portal with some of the most common requests in mind, and later today I will release an updated version of it. I will also release a new template, a kind of massive one in terms of file size and features for being made by me. Stay tuned for a release announcement later today.
As a side note, I have a request. If you post comments to a blog entry on andreasviklund.com, please use your own name or an established nickname rather than using keywords relevant for the site you write in the URL field. While I appreciate all kinds of feedback, I would rather get comments from people than from keywords!
And finally, two updates have been made to the site itself. The [contact form->contact] is online again, feel free to use it if you want to get in touch with me directly. Just make sure that I am the right person to contact, I still get a lot of e-mails about content on other peoples (template-based) websites. And the music section has been removed, with the songs now available on my purevolume.com page rather than on this website. From now on, andreasviklund.com is all about topics related to web design.
