TriColumn is a three columns theme for Wordpress powered blogs with one sidebar on the left and the other on the right. Designed for blogs which running advertistments, ads banners fit in perfectly in the sidebars as well as the content. TriColumn styled a simple and clean designs.

What’s new in v1.1:
1. Major color change (Now, color theme based on Engadget.com)
Received a lots of comments about v1.0b colors (bad colors), so changed new “skin”!

To change the header picture, the size MUST be 475×125 in .gif format and don’t rename it, or else you have to edit the style.css file. (You can edit the included headerimg.png using Macromedia Fireworks and save as gif)

To edit the navigation menu links, open header.php with any HTML editor, Notepad also can.

To edit the navigation menu styles, look in style.css.
