    I love the theme, however, the text does not render over well. If you have text in a blockquote, it does not recognize paragraphs or full sentences.

    Here is an example.

    Please tell me what I should do.

    Thanks

  10. But doesn’t have to WordPress.org? :(

    The theme is publically available along with all the other wordpress.com themes via svn. So it’s not really exclusive to wordpress.com; it’s also available to geeks who can use svn, not to mention any really dedicated person willing to download each file individually.

    @Karen: this is due to the way the CSS is coded, so unless you already have the CSS upgrade the only way to change it is to contact Automattic.

    Cool idea. I happen to think it’s one of the best out there, but maybe that’s just me. Thanks for your interesting ideas

  12. JC says:

    ;-)

    How to me add embed video to post or add widget not function ?

  14. Karen says:

    Oh dear, I didn’t know you had to have a CSS paid account for this gorgeous layout. Ah, it’s going to be hard to separate from it.

    Thanks.

  15. celery says:

    I love this theme and has used it for my blog. One thing I wish I can change is the font and colour of the title of the blog. The font colour is black..

    But.. whatever it is I love all your designs!!! they’re are contagious.. BEAUTIFUL! well done :)

  16. Doraemon says:

    The theme is nice. Especially the colors. But I don’t feel quite comfortable with the font.

    Overall it looks fine. Thanks

  21. reinaq says:

    its cery cute ilike ot

  22. trance says:

    @ that girl again

    the theme is made for wordpress.com so if you download it from svn you must modify some code to make it work.

  23. Pin says:

    Not just beautiful design, but the great understanding making the theme work with WordPress structure.

  24. ruth triana says:

    it’s very great..luv your design..so so so beautifull..

  25. Zahra says:

    its available on wordpress theme now?
    how we can get it?

  26. hardy says:

    when we can download it?

  27. Hisham says:

    very good design!

  28. Karin says:

    Love this design so much… I already use Illacrimo for another personal project – self-hosted and not at WordPress – and I would love to use Albeo too!

    I have downloaded the Albeo files from the SVN link.

    You write “you must modify some code to make it work.” Which code and how? I would love to know, but I am not a programmer!

  29. Haibra says:

    Cool , but i want to download it, i found it here > http://svn.automattic.com/wpcom-themes/albeo/ .. but how i can download it !!

  30. Jose Thomas says:

    Wow.. Beautiful… I likes this design

  31. Freak says:

    from where we can download this theme????????

  32. Jay says:

    This theme is very customizable via CSS; thank you for all the semantic ids and classes.

    One request: could you add a body class for the types of content, i.e., posts, pages, categories, archives, etc.?

    That would allow us to style the category lists differently, since the text is truncated …

  33. Great theme! It’s really great to see pro themes being released!

  34. zihuahua says:

    Thank you for your design (it’s the best one by far) – I am using it for my wordpress blog! :-)

  35. Jez says:

    Hi,

    Your insense download link is broken… just thought Id let you know.

    Nice designs :-)

  36. DD fan says:

    I’ve seen your themes before and they totally rock. I was so happy to see Albeo! But please, pretty please… It’d be so much nicer is the archive view could show the whole posts and not just snippets with [...] in the end. I mean, readers just won’t click on every single day if they want to read all the posts they missed, you know? It’s so much easier to be able to view everything at once. If anyone wants to read the archives for a whole month, no one is going to go through 30 clicks for each day. :( And the fact that the pictures are not viewable in the snipped archive pages isn’t so nice either. :( Those are the reasons why I went back to my old theme… :( So sad, though, because Albeo sure wins for beauty.

  37. Ralph says:

    As a newbie I explored all 60 WordPress themes and Albeo is by far the best one for color and layout and cheerfulnes. Red is my favorite so the titles stand out

  38. Ralph says:

    what is are trackbacks/pings?

  39. chaiguy1337 says:

    Hi there. I think your Albeo theme is beautiful and am using it for my computer science blog, piHole.

    My one complaint/request is that the “Top/Latest/Tags” widget be customizable so that we can pick the initially-selected pane. I love the Recent Comments look as it gives the blog a more chatty/interactive feel and want that to always show up first instead of Top Posts!

  40. Seajay says:

    Is there any way to style types of pages? For example, I’d like to style the main content on the category and tag pages in a way that is different from the home or permalink pages, but I see no body classes to allow me to do so.

  41. Hari Nair says:

    Well, it kind of jumped up and caught me from the Themes selection page. And that does not happen often. Very nice.

    One comment – about Comments, actually. Would be nice if there is some way of getting a Comments link at the bottom of the post. Seems to give a more natural flow to it that way. minor quibble though.

  42. YNa says:

    the colour is so soft, so beautiful :)

  43. ehtsham says:
