Note from the Author
SideWinder is quite possible the most “customizable” that I’ve ever released to date… if you’ve used the Flex theme before, you’re going to be seriously impressed by this as it includes some massive improvements over the early versions of Flex.
A full traditional blog is included, in case anyone is wondering… and you can even filter for single categories on specific blog pages, so you can extend this theme as far as you’d like.
You can also customize the background on each and every page on the site, so you can add a custom graphic for each portfolio piece or page to really make your work shine
I’ll be updating and supporting this theme as much as is humanly possible, so don’t hesitate to shout if you find a bug.

The best way to update is a simple FTP overwrite – you can do the entire theme folder, or the specific files (below). You can also use the standard Appearance > Themes > Install (using the .zip file). There’s no best way, but if you’ve made any custom modifications to the template files, it might be worth reviewing the files one by one just to be safe.
