Still using Profile 1.0 because 2.0 took away the network box and contact box graphics? Well, I’ve found some really awesome Profile 2.0 themes that use graphics very effectively – all created by our awesome CoolChaser Theme creators – chekkitout!
Whoa! I have to confess, I’ve never watched Twilight yet (don’t stone me!), but this looks like an official MySpace Twilight page created for this character! I love how Georgia uses the graphic in the Basic Info box! Much more freedom than using the network box in terms of space, isn’t it? Georgia also has lots of other cool 2.0 themes with a similar style – so go check them out!
This is actually a very unique theme, do you notice that the Basic Info Box has a different background (white) from the other modules? Also, it uses the Rasta logo (is it a logo?) as a whole inside the Basic Info Box, and as a background for the other module headers. A very creative theme!
Vampire Love by ♥CJ♥
Another Vampire Theme by our new rising star ♥CJ♥! She is constantly on the top of our ranking page and has lots of fans! She always make sure that her themes look great both in 1.0 and 2.0 and for this theme, I personally like the 2.0 version 🙂 She has lots of cool Valentines themes too so go check’em out!
Here’s a great example using the double background feature on our Profile 2.0 editor by >>Nin<. You see the brown wood textured background around the modules and the green background around it – hence the “double background” 😀 Notice the cool star graphic right in the middle of the “Basic Info” box, also tweaked by using our Profile 2.0 editor!
Another great double background example by Just April! If we can’t decide which background to use, you can use both of them (but make sure you use it elegantly, this could go crazy LOL)
I hope these themes inspired you to create great looking themes! And thanks to all the theme creators for taking your time to make the theme look good both in Profile 1.0 and Profile 2.0 – you guys are such pros!!
