RS10 – Free WordPress Theme

Last Updated on by

Today we have another great template design by Rambling Soul, integrated into a WordPress theme by myself. This one has all the usual features, including native Gravatar support (WordPress 2.5+ only), tagging support, and a widget-ready sidebar. It also has a special homepage template with 3 areas to place your post content. All this is configurable via an included config file, which will be gone over in detail below.

And now on to the homepage configuration…

Homepage Post Control

In the theme directory you’ll find a file called config.php. From here you can enter the number of pages you wish to display at the top, the left column, and the right column.

The variables used should be pretty self-explanatory.

Custom Thumbnails

This theme utilizes WordPress’ custom fields function to have optional thumbnail images on the homepage. The custom field key is thumb. The value should be the name of the image located in your /wp-content/themes/rs10/thumbs/ directory.

That’s about all the extra features. If anything is confusing, please feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll try to clarify it.
