  • Thanks, I will try it today, maybe it is what I’ve been searching for.

  • Does anyone know a good place to find free Vanilla themes? I hardly find them.

    Vanilla is rad. I can’t wait until the next version is out of beta.

  • You gotta be careful, that screen shot is a picture of the still in beta version of Vanilla 2. Vanilla 1 can be found on google code and is now run by the community. Vanilla 2 is on github and its being developed by Mark (original owner) and company.
