TypeHost Releases Three Open Source Themes for Drupal – Drigg 5.x
TypeHost Web Development, a Drupal Solutions Provider and open source web design company, has released three free themes for Drupal 5.x installations using the Drigg module for social bookmarking sites. Drigg is an extensive set of modules that transforms a Drupal installation into a social bookmarking site similar to Digg, Del.icio.us, Reddit, Mixx, Propeller, etc. The following themes were developed specifically to integrate Drigg with Advanced Profile Kit and are free to download and use in your Drigg-based Drupal 5.x sites.
Drupala Theme for Drupal 5.x Drigg Install:
The main theme for our social bookmarking / blog portal / social networking installation profile. This theme is derived from the Drigg base theme, but changes the menu structure to allow for more flexibility in working with taxonomy & views when building portal sites. The Drupala theme is two columns, optimized for APK & Drigg, and cross-browser tested in FF, IE6, IE7, Chrome, Safari, and Opera. Uses bright blue gradients to define blocks & site sections, relatively clean, quick loading & scalable. Open Source / GNU Public License.
SEO-Mix Theme for Drupal 5.x Drigg Install:
The Drupala and SEO-Mix themes are only different in the color of the top buttons in the GUI, and the SEO-Mix theme uses an “up only” voting button, while the Drupala theme uses a +/- system. Included with the download of the Drupala theme above & part of the Drupala profile. Open Source / GNU Public License.

Echodemic Theme for Drupal 5.x Drigg Install:
Nice dark blue and white theme with wide main menu for a social bookmarking & blog portal site based on Drigg which includes a set of custom voting icons. This theme is also optimized for an APK install and cross-browser tested. Uses the same WebDevNews tutorial for styling the user log-in block. Sponsored by Echodemic. Released under the Open Source / GNU Public License.
These themes are intended to be used with a Drigg installation following these instructions:
Both themes also use the Rounded Corners module: http://drupal.org/project/rounded_corners
