I am happy to announce the long awaited release of Anaconda theme for WordPress 2.x (and above) blogs. Your search for a good css based three column WordPress theme is finally over.
Anaconda uses flexible 3 column layout which is designed entirely with CSS. The center column and left sidebar are flexible and adjusts to browser size.
Anaconda comes with inbuilt support for 15 popular WordPress plugins out of the box. The theme is designed to work perfectly with these plugins. We have tested them for you so you don’t have to.
Anaconda provides 17 WordPress widgets for you to extensively customize your site without writing / modifying a single line of code. We have tested it with 20 widgets overall. We have widgetized all inbuilt functionalities of K2 theme.
Anaconda works without any configuration out of the box. It is also extensively customizable for those who need it. You can even include your own stylesheets, known as schmes. Two sample schemes are provided including vader.css.
Customizations can be easily done using the Anaconda Options control panel under Presentations menu.
Anaconda theme has built-in support for inline and sidebar asides. It optionally supports Ajax commenting, Live search, fixed width layout etc.

Anaconda is based upon very popular K2 WordPress Theme and equally popular Mollio Web template. K2 is known for its rich, but complex, functionalities. K2 is based on Kubrick which has been modified to create the default WordPress theme. Mollio is known for her (someone has to be a female so why not the good looking one?) stunning good looks.
We have taken both of them, ripped them apart and made them work together, which was a big task by itself. We took all of K2’s functionalities and widgetized them and added our own. We fixed lot’s of defects and pesky layout issues, enhanced the look and finally we present you with the Anaconda Theme.
Anaconda comes with GPL (GNU Public License). Both Mollio & K2 are released under GPL. The only thing we require is that you keep the attributions and linkbacks in the footer without any change.
Download Anaconda Theme
1. Download the theme archive and extract the files it contains. You should preserve the directory structure in the archive when extracting these files. It should create a directory named anaconda.
2. Using an FTP client to access your host web server, upload anaconda directory to wp-content/themes directory provided by WordPress. All your Anaconda theme files should be in wp-content/themes/anaconda after the upload.
3. Follow the instructions below for selecting the new theme.
To select Anaconda theme for your site:
1. Log in to the WordPress Administration Panels.
2. Select the Presentation subpanel.
3. Click on Anaconda to activate it.
4. To view the new look, click View Site at the top of the Panel’s screen.
Your selection should immediately become active. Enjoy!
