The Writer theme, any good?

There’s a good deal on all themes from Nick Cates at the moment and I’m looking at the Writer theme, but it says it’s for RW6 so I’m not sure if it’s still compatible with RW7 and has been updated (if needed) to work.

It’s a lovely looking theme, and even though it’s cheap I don’t want to have issues in the future. I’m looking at moving my personal blog from WordPress using this the Writer theme.

Have any of you Weavers used it?


I don’t have it myself but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t compatible with RW 7. Nick is less focused on themes nowadays but it came out only a couple of months before RW 7 was released.

If you haven’t seen it, the community site has a handful of real-world web sites using Writer:

I’d say you’d he safe with Writer.

I have it here for testing and it works with RW 7 without issues.


Many thanks to @jabostick and @zeebe for replying.

I’ve just bought it. And what a bargain.

Merry Christmas


I love Writer. No issues, been using it since it’s release.


I have had it since RW 7 and works great on RW8 as well. Love it.

I’m not sure I understand the question.
