    Both Ian and I and others met with WW last Friday to discuss blog themes in general. I think what is important is not so much which particular theme(s) we use, but what features/options are most useful for any given theme to have. ShadowBox itself is less of a particular theme than it is a framework for creating themes in general. Thus it could be possible to use the ShadowBox framework to implement one or more White Whale designed themes. That way we could develop a consistent set of options that many/all themes might share…
