Ice Breaker – Free WordPress Domain Parking Theme

Last Updated on by

Ice Breaker is a free WordPress domain parking theme that I just released over at Custom Theme. It has four different color options, custom widgets, among other interesting features.

I know this isn’t the typical WordPress theme you see around here, mainly because it’s not made for content. The main purpose of this theme is to have a page up while your blog is in the planning stages, and collect subscribers at the same time.

The idea behind the theme is inspired by Ian Stewart’s LaunchPad theme which is another “domain parking” theme for WordPress.

Head on over to Ice Breaker WordPress theme page to download, and leave your feedback in the release post. I’d be very interested in hearing your feedback.

    Lovely template, perfect for the site I’m planning on launching soon … but I can’t for the life of me work out how to get the email subscription to work! I’ve got the feedburner details, think I’ve put them in right but it still says email service is not active!

    @Alison: Still need to finish writing that complete FeedBurner signup tutorial.

    Short version: Go to the “Publicize” tab in your FeedBurner account → Click “Email Subscriptions” in the left menu under Services → Activate email subscriptions.

    Should be all you need to do after you’ve burned your feed.
