Sorry for the late response - looks like you already removed the theme from
your blog. The sidebar basically runs one of my outdated codes which I plan
to scrap as bootstrap now provides upstream support for a floating sidebar.
Some work was being done on a Wordpress version, but then we decided to
migrate kde.org to drupal - so the work on WordPress came to a halt.
We follow a certain list of guidelines when writing a neverland variant.
You can ping us on IRC so that we can discuss (I am sayakb there). Some of
the important things we follow are:
- We always inherit from the base theme:
http://cdn.kde.org/css/bootstrap.css. The child stylesheets only rewrite a
few coponents - we try not to override the default unless essential to do
- Themes we have are responsive. We don't do fluid layouts anymore. The
concept is simple - nav items should collapse, the content should be
reorganized correctly on different resolutions.
- We try to maintain font size, icon colors and same element styles across
There are many other bits. Before we put it in the repo, I'd like to take a
look at the theme. In any case, I really appreciate your efforts.

We have been working like crazy on Neverland since months. Right now, we
have more around 10 different sites (the forum, wikis, drupal, identity,
blogs, behindkde, bugzilla, season, download/files, paste) running
neverland flavors. There are other sites in queue as well, like the
mainsite (which already as a theme as it's coming up on drupal) and the
SE (Retail), Infosys Ltd.
