Rachel is a WordPress theme that started out as a child theme of Audacity of Tanish, but grew divergent enough that I decided to release it independently.
Rachel retains quite a bit of the styling of Audacity of Tanish, with a face-lift via some splendid fonts made available recently by Google.
This theme is released under the latest version of the GPL (currently v3), whichever that may be at the time of your use. For the GPL, see: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html. You are free to use this theme for any purpose you choose, in a manner that conforms to the GPL. I would like you to leave the attribution at the bottom of the sidebar, but you are not required to do so (and I fully understand if you choose to disable it — in fact, there is a theme Option for that!).
Visit the WordPress site for detailed and authoritative instructions on installing themes. For the impatient: it is usually as simple as extracting the archive and copying the directory (“rachel”) into your WordPress installation directory under
Versions of this theme lower than 1.0 (e.g: 0.9) are, as the number indicates, alpha releases. They have not been exhaustively tested on all browsers (in particular IE7 and Opera). Please be aware of this if you should choose to use this theme. At the same time, a good bit of testing has been done (and found acceptable by standards!) on Safari 4, Safari 5, Chrome 4 and 5, Firefox 3.6, IE7 and Opera 10.53 (all but IE7 on Mac OS X).
I would love to hear from you if you find issues, so that I can fix them ASAP.
