There are some beautiful plugin styles for K2 (an advanced theme for the Wordpress blogging system). Unfortunately, most of them aren‘t compatible with the theme’s latest releases, since the code beneath has changed repeatedly during K2’s protracted development. So I took the trouble to rewrite my favorite K2 styles lest they are abandoned and forgotten. The following updates were first devised for use on blogsport.de — a German blog portal based on K2. The original style authors are linked and credited below.

Fork

Fork

Fork is one of the most attractive styles for K2 I know of. Here is an altered version of the original release by Dave Kellam (Jan 14th, 2006), adapted to K2 RC5.

To install place fork.css and the fork directory into the K2 styles directory, and activate the style via K2 options panel in the Presentation menu.

mini

mini mini, just like the name says, is a miniaturized version of K2. The author is Dan, whose domain improvpastence.com seems to have been grabbed recently. It’s a pity. I‘ve upgraded his style for K2 RC5 and slightly enhanced it. Here’s an example.

Outbreak

Outbreak Outbreak is a black background style by Cory Holt that can be had in either of three colour schemes: blue, green, or orange. I‘ve purged all the superfluous code and updated it for K2 RC5. In this version it’s also IE compliant. Click here for an example blog!

K2 Redux Warhol White

K2 Redux Warhol WhiteK2 Redux Warhol White is authored by Headsetoptions and was originally released as a mod. That is, it had to be installed as part of a customized and repackaged K2 theme, which lagged behind the current version RC5. I‘ve turned it into a scheme so that you can easily drop it into the styles directory of a standard K2 installation.
