Today we have a very cool free WordPress theme, originally designed by DemusDesign, and ported into WordPress by me. This theme may look simple on the front-end, but the configuration file in the back-end gives you a nice selection of options that control color choice, column amount, among other things – which will be gone over below.
And now on to the features…
In the theme directory is a configuration file called config.php. This is where you can set the following:
- Theme background color: Light* or Dark
- Theme text weight: Muted* or Bold
- Theme heading color: Green*, Blue, or Orange.
- Sidebars: One* or Two
- Slogan displayed: Yes* or No
An asterisks * means it’s set by default.
That’s right, you can have your choice of one or two sidebars with this theme – all widgetized. The sidebar named “right sidebar” applies to both the sidebar in the 2 column layout, as well is the right sidebar in the 3 column layout. Here’s a screenshot of what the config file will look like in your theme editor.
The file is well commented but, if you’re still confused, make your choices on this Choice Config file generator and it will spit out the code you need to place over your current config.php file.
Update: Version 1.1 (May 2, 2008): Due to popular demand, Gravatar support has been added for those who use WordPress 2.5+. Updated files are style.css and comments.php
