Wordpress - Any WYSIWYG theme editor???

Hello,

I would like to create my own theme(s) for a couple of my own blog
sites. I am hoping a few better themes could bring lot more readers.
So far, I have stayed with the default wordpress theme (blue title).

There are a lot of web sites I have seen that have very attractive
themes. I am not a programmer and do not like to edit the php files or
css files etc. My preference is to visually create the theme
(font,images,ba ckground colors etc) and upload to my blog site. Are
there any WYSIWYG Wordpress theme editors?

Any help you provide is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I doubt it. However you can design a page in e.g. dreamweaver and copy
bits like the sidebar code and posting code into it. But you have to
split it up again afterwards. Php is not very suitable to do in Wysiwyg
mode.
And I suggest you choose a theme that you like somewhat from the
wordpress theme gallery to get started with. You can always try to
adjust it then. Anything is better than that blue default theme ;-)

There is actually, I wrote one earlier this month. Its called
ThemeDreamer and its an extension to Dreamweaver. It will allow you to
use Dreamweaver's Design View mode to click and drag html blocks of
that make up a wordpress theme visually. You can also manipulate CSS
styles, navigate code in Code View, link right into context sensitive
online documentation, etc. etc. If your using Dreamweaver with
WordPress and you're not using this extension, your only getting half
the picture! Unlock Dw's potential! Its the only WYISWYG editor for
WordPress theme files. Check out before/after pics here:

Hi I'm looking for a wysiwyg XSTL editor, that actually is wysiwyg. So far every product I have tried out seems to have the idea that wysiwyg is just showing the result of an XML - XSL trans-formation. What I'm looking for is an editor that lets me design how I want the result to look, based on a XML file, and automatically generates the XSL needed to obtain the result. Does such a product exist?

Howdy, I'm using a WYSIWYG editor called TinyMCE. When I edit some text and then save it back to my SQL server using a SQLCommand, all HTML characters are changed to HTML code, i.e. &gt;strong&lt; instead of <strong> and so on. Is this a problem with the editor or something else? Does .Net convert it? I had to disable page validate request because of the tags, is there more? Thanks,

I've been fooling around with a wordpress theme called Enlighten on http://www.topwpthemes.com/ (scroll down to find it). It works fine in FF, Opera but not in IE6. In IE6, the sidebar gets pushed below the posts/content. Since some of you CSS geniuses can often spot bugs in the blink of an eye, I thought I'd throw it out there and see if someone can spot the issue. I've been fiddling with it for a couple hours to no avail.
