Stay up to date with our newest WordPress themes, WordPress plugins, WordPress tutorials, and other announcements.
Today we have another excellent template designed by Rambling Soul, and ported into WordPress by me. This free WordPress theme has all the usual features – widgetized sidebar, native Gravatar (WordPress 2.5 and above only) and tagging support. Along with those, there is also a theme options page, details of which will be gone over below.
And now onto the details of the theme options page…
Theme Options Page
Below is a screenshot of the theme options page available in the ClearPixels theme, along with an explanation of specific features.
On the left is Page List Output, and the right is the Announcement input area.
Page List Output
The theme options page can control the upper page navigation list output. If you have too many pages than the theme design can accommodate, it’s easy to exclude them from the list. You can also order the pages alphabetically, by page order, or date published.
The announcement text you see on the demo is also controlled on this theme options page. You can write whatever text you want, and have it displayed on your blog – sitewide. This could come in handy if you have an important announcement or message you’d like to get across to your readers. There is also an optional “Read More” URL input box in case you want to link to something.
