Thanks providing the Flex Skin newer version. I will try this on my new wordpress blog that i have been working on.


Fantastic, thank you Chris for new version of Flex Skin. I hope it will help me in by internet business.


I love the design elements, especially GRT. I want to maintain maximum readability and beauty of reading. I am just starting a site for which this will work well. I am not a web developer or designer and just want to make sure the design elements for this will do the following:

I usually will NOT want sidebars, but WILL want the narrower-column GM typography in a centered position for post summaries, post content, and comments — basically, anywhere where I’m using standard-sized article/content text. Will the flex skin do this automatically, or will it widen the text to be like the “no sidebars” example page? Or, can I easily change a setting once and have it be GM narrow centered unless I change it?
