I have created a new theme called Newsport. I used a little bit from Hoyt’s theme. The theme will allow header uploading, side category background uploading, choosing categories for main feature, category features, and side feature from the admin panel, and even randomizing recent posts so the theme won’t be bland.

You can see the demo here:

If you want to get into the demo area, let me know and I will send the name and password. I am working on the css right now, but I’ll probably have it finished by next week.

As for this post, some of these themes are very outdated ( Mimbo 3 was released two years ago ). I do still have an old copy of Options, but its not getting updated.

The Options Theme is discontinued and not available for download anymore…
