WordPress Fun: A Free WordPress Theme


If you have been following Smashing Magazine for a while you know that we love high-quality freebies. Over the last years we’ve featured a number of designers and developers who released their work for free — among other things we presented high-quality free fonts, free WordPress themes, free wallpapers and, of course, free icons. You can find many of them in our section Freebies1.

Every release helps to make the Web a nicer place which is why we support designers and challenge them to release something for free in order to be featured on Smashing Magazine. And the results are quite often pretty impressive.


Today we are glad to release a wordpress.fun — a free professional WordPress-theme. The theme has 2 columns, thumbnails integration, a “featured” post section as well as a nice grungy design. The theme was designed by Maleika Attawel3 from Germany, purchased by Smashing Magazine and is now released as a gift for our readers.

Download the theme for free!

You can use the theme for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. However, it’s forbidden to sell or redistribute the theme without both designer’s and Smashing Magazine’s permission — please link to this article if you would like to spread the word. You may modify the theme as you wish, but if you are planning to release your modification, please ask our permission first.

The main illustration (Teen Blogger (Punk Boy)) was created by ChinHang Chung4 and purchased by Smashing Magazine from iStockPhoto with the extended license “Electronic Items for Resale (unlimited run)”. Therefore the illustration is redistrubited legally.


Motivation behind the design: the idea

What do you generally do when you want to create a WordPress theme without having an actual client? The initial reaction would be; you despair. All the things we have learned as good web designers such as evaluating a client’s specific needs, doing proper field research, wireframing, finding the proper grid concept for content placement, selecting a colour scheme and visual elements to support content, choosing good type, tailored to … oh wait … this is just a theme.

A theme, by definition, is a subject of discourse. In the case of a WordPress theme, it can be anything. And in the delicate case of my humble theme, the subject is fun. Plain and simple. The idea was to create a theme that is fun and usable, heavy and light, eye-catching and robust, specific and yet generic enough to be used in a variety of ways. The theme is not designed to replace true and proper web design, ergo it is not tailored to suit a specifc niche, nor complement distinctive content. However, depending on your explicit or non-explicit purposes, the design might find a good home.


The prerequisites

Like all creative processes, it started with an idea. While I am a great fan of minimalistic designs, I also admire complex and graphically intense web compositions. The only prerequisite was that it doesn’t take ages to load and that the total size of the graphics doesn’t add up to an enormous sum that would only enable those with mighty speedy internet connections to work. That was the only aspect I had to keep in mind to get started.

The design process

I had decided on going with a simple two column layout. No fancy modular or column grid, but a simple hierarchical grid like the majority of blogs use. As a page’s length is variable, it was clear that only the content that is extra but not mandantory could reside at the bottom of the page. So all navigational aids (such as categories or friends’ links) as well as a “most discussed” feature would take their position at the very end of the page.


Because I wanted to keep it as elementary as possible and void content clutter, it was clear to me to do away with too many features that would blur instead of sharpen the reader’s perception when visiting the site. Hence, I kept it rather simple and thus set aside the left column for featured content and the right column to display the newest blog entries.

Here11 you have the result of my humble efforts (preview) and here12 you can download the theme for free.

Special requirements

The theme is built with WordPress 2.5.1 and is only partially backwards compatible. The theme also works with WordPress 2.6. As this theme uses a few .png files, it is recommended that you make sure that the image paths to these are correct (for IE6). You find the two CSS rules in the ie.css file inside your theme folder. The theme can be used with or without widgets (below the fold).

Last but not least…

We are regularly looking for creative designers and artists. You may not know it yet, but we might feature you in one of our upcoming posts.

If you would like to release a high-quality free font, a WordPress-theme, some wallpapers or an icon-set please contact us13 — we would like to support you (both financially and with the broad coverage on Smashing Magazine).

    Awesome work my friend :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. 3

    nice grunge, but its looks complicated, too much images. I love simple style

  4. 4

    Looks great! Heavy on the graphics though,.,…

  5. 5

    Very nice, and I think as we’re in 2008 we shouldn’t be so stuck up about “graphics heavy” most of us have broadband, and hosting costs are getting cheaper and cheaper, I’d rather see 2 graphics heavy sites that look great than 200 similar looking boring “quick loading” sites. Either way, nice work.

  6. 6

    Nice looking design.

  7. 7

    Ich finde es klasse, mal nicht so 08-15 wie die meisten Themes. Tolle Arbeit!

  8. 8

    WoW – great!
    Now i try to translate it in italian.

  9. 9

    What a grungily beautiful theme. I am tempted to use the graphic logo on my own blog.

  10. 10

    danke, super gemacht!

  11. 11

    looking good!

  12. 12

    Wonderful as always! :-)

    It would be great to see a demo of this theme too!

  13. 13

    Nice theme! The stock illustration you used is everywhere though.

  14. 14

    Theme looks too coool ….

  15. 15

    I’m having trouble installing the theme – Word press reports: WordPressFun/style.css is not readable. I’ve reuploaded the file, even checked it in a text editor and it looks fine. Anyone got suggestions?

  16. 16

    Looks nice. Might try my hand at doing a free theme

  17. 17

    Great looking theme! Thanks!

  18. 18

    This is so strange.. I saw that design being sold on sitepoint. How come it is now free. And since the vector illustration is a stock image how do you manage the copyright issues?

  19. 19


    I am the designer of the theme. The stock image was bought. The design was bought by Smashing Magazine via SitePoint.

    Best wishes,


  20. 20

    Very nice designed theme. I’ve seen this theme on sitepoint marketplace

  21. 21

    Hi, i found the header image on a tumblr site. mini.jtale.com It’s the same designer?

  22. 22

    so nice !

  23. 23

    Wow, this is really amazing! Thank you! (:

  24. 24

    Nice theme but quick question – Is there any issues about using a stock photo in a theme distributed like this? Does the images license allow this kind of distribution? Here’s the image on iStockPhoto.

  25. 25

    exquisite work :)

  26. 26

    nice theme.. i love it

  27. 27

    Très jolie

  37. 37

    Hi, wonderful theme , no doubt ! I have just one question : i’d like to translate the theme ( no other modifications ) and place a download link of the translated theme on my site… do I have the permission to do so ?

  38. 38

    Very cool…will you make something similar but a bit more professional? ^^

  39. 39

    Really, is Smashing Magazine in violation of the copyright if the istockphoto vector image by redistributing this?!?

    ONE THING THAT IS MISSING IN ‘READ ME FILE’ for the archive page don’t forget to select the page template ‘archives’ else archive page won’t display posts.

    Very nice theme!!! Perfect for me. Thanks

  43. 43

    Great theme indeed. Thanks!

  44. 44

    Great theme! I love the kid with the lappy :) I so like it, I am probably going to switch my theme to it till the time I find time to design my own theme someday for my blog.

    Maleika Attawel, I will definitely send you an acknowledgment email once I switch over :)

  45. 45

    The theme is great!I like it!

  46. 46

    I like your WordPress themes, but you never make them 800×600 compatible. :(

  47. 47

    controversial theme!

  48. 48


    July 16, 2008 8:25 am

    I love the artwork. Good composition, but somehow there is a bit of a disconnect in regards to the actual items used in the illustration. Popcorn, Soda, Skeleton themed Headphones, maybe if you used some more common elements. The Kid Illustrated seems to be focused on one type of audience, not all, you know what I mean? Not every user has this same profile?

    Just a comment :)
    Nice work though, very outside the box creative!


  49. 49

    Awesome theme guys! The best free WordPress theme so far.

  50. 50

    How about the font files used in this theme?
    They are not included with the source files.

  51. 51

    Not bad, but I am not fan of the grunge look. I totally loved the featured content on the side though.
    Is anybody away of any minimal style theme with the featured content on the side, (just like above).
    I think the designer will do us a lot of service by giving us a less grungy version of this theme.
    Please help.

  52. 52


    July 16, 2008 9:56 am

    something about the title illustration for this article makes me want to shoot myself in the face.

  53. 53

    Calítoe: 800×600? Come on now… When Yahoo updates their front page to 1024, it’s time for everyone else to catch up.

    Are you still rocking a 56.6kbps modem too?

  54. 54

    Thanks, this theme looks quite cool.

  55. 55

    Awesome theme – added to my site. The boy graphic is very easy to edit. I changed mine around quite a bit.



  56. 56

    Love the theme and the new rockatee.com website.
    How does one port a wordpress theme to a plain CSS layout?

  57. 57

    never post befor, my 1st… just like to say thanks.. i love smashingmagazine..

  58. 58

    Does anyone know how I could add a widget sidebar to the right of the posts?

  59. 59

    i had bought a pro theme but switched to this one … i wasn’t a regular visitor of smashing magazine but now i thinking to join the fan club of smashing magazine :) it’s pro theme and it was supposed to be little complicated… contact form is useless and i disabled the plugin and it’s working fine. the only thing that is lacking in every free theme is ‘ support ‘ i think many people would love to switch to this theme provided one is out there to solve their issues, it has little compatiblity issue with ie6 logo does not appear despite png transparent fix coding…. anyway best theme for personal blog thumbs up!!!

  60. 60

    can anyone help with how to get the small images to show up in posts on the front page?

  61. 61

    Nice theme, thanks!

  62. 62

  66. 66

  69. 69

    Absolutly Awesome Theme!!! I love it!! Please more Ai cartoon style WordPress Theme. Really Thanks

  70. 70

    Absolutely fantastic work! Just looking at the .psd file, you can tell the amount of work that went into it and the real attention paid to every little detail. While some might night like the grunge look or might think the theme is too dark, if you look at what actually went into making this wordpress theme, you really can’t help but appreciate it. Great job Smashing Magazine!

    Too full, too charged, too complicated!

    A lot of “buggy” things (the un-transparent “page fold” in the footer) and unesthetic things!

    You can do better, much better!

  85. 85

    How do i go about having an image in the posts image placeholder?

    Hello, hello.

    Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone for their comments and criticism, good and bad alike, so dankeschön, gracias, thanks, merci, grazie, and … can’t think of any other languages right now. :)

    In response to comment #31:

    Jeff: Add the absolute path to the images locations in your /themes/WordPressFun/images/ie.css folder and it should work.

    In response to comment #41:

    Jeff: That is correct. Thanks for the heads up. The archive page needs to use the archive template page.

    In response to comment #45:

    Ankit: Thanks muchly!

    In response to comment #51:

    Mike, the fonts are Georgia and Arial. As these are “mostly” installed on every computer, I have not included them.

    In response to comment #57:

    Ty, By viewing the source file, you can view the HTML skeleton which is not WordPress dependent.

    In response to commment #59:

    Matthew, the design was not created with a right sidebar column, so unless you’d roll up your sleeves, change the visual layout via the .psd, the CSS, and the HTML as well as the WordPress theme files, it is not possible.

    In response to comment #66:

    Matthew, it is explained in the readme file. If you still have issues, do let me know.

    In response to comment #86:

    jCoote, do you mean the image thumbnails? If so, you will find the instructions in the readme file.

    In response to comment #87:

    dogday, have you installed the theme as outlined in the readme? If you are still experiencing problems after that, do let me know and I’ll be glad to help.

    If I have forgotten anything or neglected to respond to someone’s particular installation issues, do give me a shout.



  88. 88

    I feel so silly having totally missed the Readme notes. Thank you for everything Maleika.

  89. 89

    One more question i have is how do i change the text shadow in the header?

  90. 90

    Maleika Attawel

    July 17, 2008 5:34 pm


    for that you will need to open the .psd file. Assuming you want to change the text to reflect your site (from wordpress.fun to something more adequate), go to the Logo layer and see what styles I have applied to the layer labeled text BG. Create your text, select it, then go to Select > Modify > Expand and enter a value of 2 pixels. For the expanded selection, create a new layer, fill it with a background colour and add a dropshadow or anything else you like.

    Hi Dude,
    nice theme btw.

    first thing: How do you make an image appear in the column-one/php section (featured)
    In your post you have one but even with the custom field in, nothing show’s up.

    Second: the image.php files doesn’t work properly. when you attach an image and have check post url (brings /?attachment=id) the design gets skrewed up.

    Thanks for this nice theme.

  92. 92

    I’m always a fun of ChinHang Chung Illustrations. I’ve got in my queue to release a couple of free themes too using his designs.

  93. 93

    Very nice designed, but are we limited to 4 menu options ? How will the design behave when we had 6 or 8 options?

    Great work

  94. 94

    Thanks for your support Maleika.

    Im still fighting to make this theme look like the screenshot.

    Another question: I have changed some texts and translated other in the psd file. How do I export only the needed zones of the full .psd image to fit the images into the /themes/WordpressFun/images folder (to overwrite them)?

    Thanks in advance again.

  95. 95

    Ok one problem solved. My screen resolution is 1024 x 768 so I couldnt see the theme in the correct way.

    Just need to know as I told, how to export the images.


  96. 96

    yes, nice theme

    but i cant access to that website :(

  97. 97

    take the reference image (original) and open it in Photoshop to see its dimensions and placement. Then go back to your .psd, click on the Rectangular Marquee Tool, set the width and height for the portion you want to extract from the .psd, click on the .psd, place the selection exactly over the portion you want to extract, go to Edit > Copy merged, then File > New and finally Edit > Paste. Name it as the original and upload it to your themes/images/ folder.

    Hi, I love this theme for my new personal blog. However, I want to translate the titles to spanish and change the image and the logo. I’ve tried to edit the PSD but I can’t find the text layers, so I don’t know how to do it. I use Pixelmator and not Photoshop but it’s more or less the same.

    I hope anyone can help me or send me those text layers at fesjav a gmail dot com

    thanks a lot

    Hey Maleika Attawel,

    First of all, great theme, just what I was looking for (sorta hehe). Amazing skills you have :)

    Now to my little problem…Its about the categories section. I use it and i use it with hierarchy as true. Problem is, that it puts huge spaces between child categories…

    Here is my blog : My Blog

    I dont really know what i am doing wrong..Without hierarchy thingy it works. I hope you reply.

    Thnx, and again well done on the template!


  114. 114

    Hey Maleika Attawel,

    Another wee little thingy, i dont understand what you guys mean by selecting the archives page? Sorry. Can you explain?


  115. 115

    Hi. This is very nice stuff. I’m working to convert it into blogger xml layout. I’m doing it for my reader, sell it, or maybe for I use in my other blog.

    Thanks to share it..

  116. 116

    the unordered lists in the footer area (below the fold) have a fixed height, meaning if you nest another list within it, it will inherit the height of your parent unordered list. So, if you want to have a hierarchical list, change the code in the stylesheet (/themes/themename/style.css). Alter the following code:

    .sub-container .category ul {

    To this:
    .sub-container .category ul {

    That should fix it.

    If you create a page, you can choose which template you want to use with it. In the dropdown, there is a page entitled “Archives”. Use that one. :)

  117. 117

    Hey Maleika,

    Thank you for replying with the solution, exceelllentt! Both problems are fixed now. I do however now know that i wont be using the fix for the categories thing, cause if i have too many categories… it will mess up your beautifull design :) But thanks !

    its always nice to se a designer give some support :) Thank you for this!


  118. 118

    great for your part!!!!!!!!!! thanks a lot for be there!! saludos desde españa!!

    Hi Peeps,

    Thanks Maleika(she makes awesome looking themes, check out the ones on Sitepoint) for making this theme, ChinHang Chung, and Smashing Mag for giving it out for free!

    How do you get an image to appear in the Featured section…? Can’t make it work. I put one @ the beginning of my post but that didn’t work…

    The contact form is not aligned… is there an easy way to fix this? And I have those “bookmark me”(Social Bookmarks Plugin) graphics/links… under Featured they balloon up and show up vertically… check out http://yoonhoum.com and you’ll see what I mean. Guess I’ll go with ShareThis or use the other bookmarking plugin…

    Thanks again
    God Bless,

  133. 133

    Super. It took almost a day to find this info. Thanks, great job. :)

  134. 134

    I love this theme – I’ve played with it a lot to get it looking more like I want, but now I have a major problem – there’s no “Leave a Comment” or any way for readers to comment on my blog! I’m not sure what I messed up, but is there a way to fix it?

    How do I replace “wordpress.fun” with my blog name? Sorry I didn’t understand the instructions regarding the logo (above).

    BTW – I love this theme, and overall have found it very easy to install, and I am not techy at all.

  137. 137

    I don’t think the designer has bought an extended license for the use of the illustation on this theme, Why? because if he or she was planning to sell it or actually sold it at Sitepoint, he(she) must be selling it as a single templates full rights obviously but not for mass distribution and SmashingMagazine Didn’t notice this ;)

    You might want to ask and clarify this guys because if not someone is going ot get into trouble ;)

    Just my suggestion.

  138. 138

    Well I do want someone to clarify this before using the theme, because if it’s Violating copyright laws then I dont want it, but I love it actually.

    kari, there is no violating of copyright laws. please don’t post false accusations. (Editor)

  139. 139

    that is really cool… maybe i will change my theme to this.. thanks…

    @all: for clarification: The main illustration (Teen Blogger (Punk Boy)) was created by ChinHang Chung and purchased by Smashing Magazine from iStockPhoto with the extended license “Electronic Items for Resale (unlimited run)”. Therefore the illustration is redistrubited legally.

  141. 141

    This is a brilliant theme! Well done.

    Just wanted to let you know I’ve added it to http://www.bestwpthemes.com, a collection of the best of the best WordPress themes available today.

  142. 142

    Having problems with this theme not loading some background images (bg, and div bgs), I’ve checked and double checked the files uploaded properly and CSS links are correct. Hmmm… :-/

  143. 143

    I’m using this theme and i have little problems, maybe because i’m a newbie.
    1) My main problem is that the codes are displayed on previews. Normaly, you don’t see them.
    2) I have read the readme.txt but i don’t succed to display the thumb in the small square.

    You can see that in “Ceci est un test” on my website: http://www.wakatrip.com

    Regards for your help and thank you ;)

  144. 144

    wow.. nice theme. i luv it.

    but the featured post section looks dull.. unlike the post on the right section..

    thanx for sharing! :)

  145. 145

    Hi myadlan,
    I don’t finish to change the skin but the more important is to resolve bugs of display for the moment. http://www.wakatrip.com

  146. 146

    Thanks for share it :)

  147. 147

    Ok that’s fine i resolve it.
    Is anyone having problems with the thumbs?…I don’t succed to put a picture in the square.

    Thank you.

  148. 148

    I seem to have the same issue as Beatnik. I just cannot get the thumbs to work.

    I have followed the instructions in the readme file and
    1) created a custom field withe the key thumb
    2) created the following value:

    And when i go to the page i only see the alt text “test” in thumb area.

    What do i do wrong here?

    Thanks in advance


  149. 149

    Ouups, in the post above the value disappeared. Sorry. Here it is.

  150. 150

    Happy to not be alone David ;)
    I’ve try a lot a things and no thumb finaly….The guy who find the solution will be the king of this topic!

  151. 151

    To show the image create the custom field named “thumb” and as a value we have to put an image tag with the path, but the src attribute has to be with single quotes instead of double quotes, that just get escaped. I tried it and it worked.
    The images should be 82 x 82

    I have however another problem. The sections at the bottom of the page aren’t growing (I have a lot of categories) so the text overflows those boxes.
    Has anyone surpassed this problem?

  152. 152

    Well, I use this theme, but when I come to the page 2 the thumbs already me do not turn out to be alone the bottom(fund), the images thumb disappear can see it, give click here
    http: // psdcreativo.com/page/2/
    But in my principal page
    http: // psdcreativo.com/here if the thumb appear
    Which can be the problem?

  153. 153

    i like it

  154. 154

    I have the same problem as Dario.

    my thumbs dissapear when going to older entries – page/2

    how can one fix that?
    thanks a lot, i love this theme

  155. 155

    wow what a nice looking theme. By far the best designed free theme available on the web. Nice job guys.

  156. 156

    For the images beside the posts, do we have to use custom fields? and if so how? are there any specifications etc? cheers for sharing guys, its a great theme!

  157. 157

    Hey there,

    Amazing theme, I’m going to begin using it shortly here. I do have a small question to ask, do you mind sharing the header image font type?

    For example, the font you used for the “featured” image, or the title text in the header? I’m looking into changing one of the boxes at the bottom, but I’d like to keep the header image consistent .

    Thanks for your time, and the awesome theme.

  158. 158

    Really thanks to you! Beautiful theme! I enjoy it…)

  159. 159

    How in the world do you edit the guy typing on the computer in the template…like what if I want to replace him with another vector? How do I do that…the source file doesn’t have any splices in it. Is there an easy trick to this?

  160. 160

    I have problem with stylesheet missing too…

  161. 161

    I am new to this. How do I change the links in the “friends and links” section.

  162. 162

    I can not get posts to appear in the left hand side featured section to appear either. I created a category called “Featured”, and assigned three posts to that category, and I am using the default code in the column one php:
    but nothing is appearing. Anyone know whats up?

  163. 163

    my code didn’t get published on the last post…but I am using the default code…. ‘category_name=Featured&showposts=3′ …I didn’t change the code at all.

  164. 164

    forget post 164 and 165…I figured it out…I had a punctuation issue. but not sure about #163

  165. 165

    how do you display pictures in the left hand featured section like the picture of the website shows?

  166. 166

    Also, I have been working on this for awhile and can not figure it out. HOw do I limit the number of posts ont he home page. I want to have a limit of 5, and then a button to go forward to page two, and a button backwards as well. Any advice on how do I do that?

  167. 167

    John – you can set this up in your admin section – settings – and then some of the tags there (publication or sth)

  168. 168

    thanks Rafal….I knew that had to be easy. Any odea how to get images to display in the featured left sidebar with the featured posts?

  169. 169

    Great theme – I’m using it on my site but I hope you don’t mind I modified it quite a bit and changed the colour scheme etc.

  170. 170

    Thanks guys! Great, great theme… easy to modify to fit my needs, and just beautiful! As a designer I never even take the time to work on my own personal site, so I’m always so very happy when I find a theme that I like enough to change things up!

    Thanks again!

  171. 171

    I read the instructions for setup and cannot get the images to appear, can someone hear layout the steps from the beginning to the end. I would love to get this to work.



  172. 172

    How can be display the thumb image?
    I did all the steps, but the thumb image for all posts, not showing?
    can anyone help me?

  173. 173

    I had to do a few steps to get the images to work. If you’d like go to my site, email me, and I’ll send you the revised code I used along with plug-in info (when needed).

    Update! WordPress 2.6.2

  178. 178

    I just started at Digital Design at my local university, and my group is using your theme. It’s pretty cool, good job. It’s a bit on the heavy side, but it looks good.

  179. 179

    Does anyone know how to put thumbnails on the left sidebar where the featured content posts are located??

  180. 180

    Great theme, but … (you take criticism right?)
    Now that I have used it, I think it was only the graphic and layout that drew me to this wordpress theme. If it’s going to be called a “pro” theme, can you make it compatible with widgets? Also, this theme never executed the wp_footer() action. As a result a few important plugins didn’t work without my intervention.
    Still, I love your magazine!

  181. 181

    Does anyone know how to put thumbnails on the left sidebar where the featured content posts are located??
    1. Upload your picture,
    2. Copy the URL to your uploaded picture,
    3. On your post, add a “Custom Field” with key “thumb” and value being the following:
    <img src=” (place your URL here) ” >

  182. 182

    thanks for your replay angie. I do that, and I DO get the little thumbnail on the main home page, BUT there are no images in the left column one left sidebar. IS there a different key for that?

    It appears that is controlled by “.asides .featured-post img {” in the css.

  183. 183

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_mostcommented() in …..

    contentthemesWordPressFunextra-content-two.php on line 7

    Why is this appearing and how do I make this theme work properly…thanks….with wp 2.6

  184. 184

    dave, when does this occur? when you access the web page, or when you access a certain function?

  185. 185

    The header is a png file. How do I modify it? Does photoshop work for creating the file?

  186. 186

    Awesome theme. Love this!

  187. 187

    Excellent theme!

    Can anyone recommend which plugins and widgets are best compatible with these theme?


  188. 188

    The header is a png file. How do I modify it? Does photoshop work for creating the file?

    The source files are available for download at the top for Photoshop.

  189. 189

    Hello, I have the same problem :
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_mostcommented() in /wp-content/themes/wordpress.fun/WordPressFun/extra-content-two.php on line 7
    using wordpress2.6 any idea ? thanks !

  190. 190

    Try *reading* the *readme* file…. you need to download a plugin to get it to work

  191. 191

    @sophie I’ve got the same trouble, but I solved it, the point is the theme uses a plugin that not come with the wordpress default distribution, you can get this plugin here: http://ja.rafi.pl/2006/05/01/wp-most-commented-posts/

  192. 192

    Has anyone figured out how to get the image to show up in the Featured column on the far left?
    The ‘thumb’ custom field only works for the middle column. Is there another custom field we can use to make the image display in the Featured column?

  193. 193

    Jason, I asked that awhile back and have yet to figure it out. Does anyone know how to add an image to the left featured column? If so, I really would appreciate the insight. Thanks!

  194. 194

    The featured column only shows the excerpt by default so you would most likely have to embed it or edit the template file to include an image from a custom field.

  195. 195

    Is it just me or is there no readme file in this? There is a “readme.html” in the root, but this is just the standard WordPress readme. The license.txt doesn’t have any help either. I’m just trying to work out how to make custom Post thumbnails…

    Awesome template by the way!! Thanks very much :)

  196. 196

    John, I finally got it to work!
    The only thing you need to edit (I think) is column-one.php
    After this line:
    ?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>

    or actually, just as long as it is with the div class “featured-post”

    You need to insert this code:
    ?php $key="post"; echo get_post_meta($post->ID, $key, true); ?>

    Then, in your post, create a custom field with the key “post” and make sure it is 300px wide and everything should work!

    also check your style.css file to make sure you have this code
    .asides .featured-post img {
    border:2px dashed #826a3e;

    let me know if this doesn't work and you need anymore help.

    ps. you also need to make sure you have the carrot before the ?php, I just couldn't get this comment to include it. if anyone has advice on how I can make sure the full code is included in a forum post I would appreciate it. Thanks!

  197. 197

    Just found the readme… it was in a higher directory than the rest of the working files :|

  198. 198

    Thanks for great work. Theme is amazing. I have a question, when I add categories, tags or ads (160×600) under the featured section using sidebar1 and sidebar2 none of the widget is appearing. I don’t want to put them in bottom section.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks again!

  199. 199

    i’m trying to figure out how to decrease the length of the post preview both in the main column and the featured column.
    i’m not talking about the number of posts showing up, but the length of each post that is previewed. For the main column it looks like it is set to 5 rows of text and the featured column is set to 9.
    does anyone have any idea where this can be controlled?


  200. 200

    This theme needs a wiki it’s so damn complicated!

  201. 201

    Amazing theme. Nice color scheme and nice layout. Everything is working fine!

    I have however a problem. The sections at the bottom of the page aren’t growing (I have a lot of categories) so the text overflows those boxes.

    I noticed that couple of people have the same problem and some (like noelgreen.com) have it working properly.

    Hope someone can help me out.


  202. 202

    Thank you Jason of #197 for posting that code, I’ll use that when I’m ready to post a picture in the featured sidebar. I assume you use the same img src code as needed for the single post thumbnails (which is just a normal img src tag without the size parms for those who haven’t figured that out already), but how do you get the post excerpt itself in the featured sidebar in the first place?

  203. 203

    BillyG –
    Have you created a category titled “featured” and then marked the post under that category? I think that was all I did, but I may have forgotten something else I had to change first…

  204. 204

    @Jason: Thanks! I didn’t read that ‘trick’ anywhere. I appreciate it!

    I was waiting to diagnose your line count situation once I got the feature sidebar working on my site, but now that I, my short post has the same amount (5) in the center and in the featured section. If I find out, I’ll post it here. Thanks again. btw: where did you read that about the category name? TIA,

  205. 205


    your theme is looking so beautiful . I have a free gadget blog and I think this theme suit to my gadget blogI “arunword.wordpress.com”.How can I use this theme. Is it posible that you include it in wordpress free template list?

  206. 206


    J have a problem. How can I switch to the full view of the similar articles. I want to see the full article at the mainpage, without clicking on every article.

    I hope, you understand my poor english!

  207. 207

    Great Theme! I’m looking for a tutorial, which show, how to create this wonderful vector icon @ header, yeah.

    @oda, search in the index.php (in the theme-directory) –> “the_excerpt()” and replace that with “the_content()”.

  208. 208

    Using this theme right now..I love it!!
    thanks a lot!!

  209. 209

    Hey great theme, please can you tell me how to get the thumbnail images working? How do I set the thumbnails in my post they they populate the home page automatically?

  210. 210

    Great work, but…how can I change the link color in the post? I hate the underline and yellow background in all my links. If I can change it, tell me wich line is in the template, please.

    Sorry for my english, I only want to change my link color :P

  211. 211

    To create a left side Widget all u have to do is to add this in column-one.php :

    I have a question .Is there a way to remove bullets from output (the once in widgets) ?

  212. 212

    Can someone help me in adding an image to the post?

    I read the readme file, but I can’t understand what “A normal post contains a custom field. The name of the custom field is “thumb”. When writing a post, create a custom field with a key of thumb and a value of the image path” means… Where is the THUMB FIELD?

    Thank you all

  213. 213

    Sorry i forgot to add the tags in my previous post.so the code that u have to add is the following:

    if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('extra-content-three') ) : ?>

  214. 214

    I was using the Sociable plugin. The images for delicious etc got distorted. Obviously theres something automatically resizing the images in that Featured column? Is it simple enough to disable that feature?

  215. 215

    I use /%category%/%postname%/ for my permalinks. So should I just hard code those urls into the navigation.php. Is there a better way or a reason why I shouldn’t do that? I find the links were getting messed up otherwise.

  219. 219

    I really like this theme, however…
    “Quote” tag do NOT seem to work?
    Is there solution for this?


  220. 220


    I noticed in the comments above that users of this theme were discovering some trouble with posts in the “Featured” category on the left-hand side of the page when using the sociable plugin.

    I’m having the same problem. Which is a shame, because the “featured” posts are typically your better posts with solid content that you want visitors to focus on, and it would be nice if visitors could share the content of these “better” posts socially to gain you some additional traffic.

    Has anyone figured out a way to keep the little social plugin .pngs from stretching in the left-hand “featured” column? If so, I would love to hear from you.

    If anybody could help me out for a quick second, that would be awesome.

    For some reason, the bottom of each of my posts, before the footer, is misaligned. I’ve sat here looking through the css and php, and can’t find out where to make any type of edit.

    Here is a link to one of my posts Link

    If you notice that at the bottom of the post under the comment box, that the “page fold” is about 20-30 pixels to high, and that the bg image starts to repeat itself. It also covers up my submit/video comment button. Any ideas would be great!?!?!?!


  222. 222


    I update my word-press to 2.7, and the site was crashes IE7. Any chance to update the theme?

  226. 226

    For some reason the columns on the bottom do not expand when there are more then a certain amount of links and categories added. Anyone know how to fix it so the links do not stretch over the column boxes?

  227. 227

    I am also having the same problem as Jay with the stretching of the links over the columns. Can anyone please help with this?

    It realy look nice, but it gives below error.
    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_mostcommented() in /home/wordpres/public_html/wp-preview/wp-content/themes/Wordpress Fun Theme/extra-content-two.php on line 7″

    How can it be fixed?

  231. 231

    yeah I get the same error also :

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_mostcommented() in /home/www/legoguru.com/wp-content/themes/WordPressFun/extra-content-two.php on line 7

    pls help

  232. 232

    Hi Guys

    If you get this error I have good news for you:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_mostcommented() in /home/www/legoguru.com/wp-content/themes/WordPressFun/extra-content-two.php on line 7

    Go to the following site and download the plugin:


    and follow these instructions :


    * Unzip archive into your plugins directory /wp-content/plugins then go to your WordPress administration menu, and choose Plugins tab then activate the WP-Most Commented Posts plugin
    * In your sidebar.php add these lines:

    Most Commented Posts

    * You can change the ammount of displayed posts by editing plugin and changing number in line eleven:

    function get_mostcommented($limit = 10) {

    where limit = 10 means number of posts.

    hope this helps!

  233. 233

    I went ahead and created a demo. Feel free to link to it. . Thanks for a great theme by the way!

    Some of my guests have problem with commenting.

    Is there any solution known ?

    I really like this theme but it would be so much better with a right sidebar. Can someone please post a writeup on how to implement a right sidebar with this theme? I need a place for adsense and widgets.

    awesome looks, but a very restricted theme…readme says “You must have at least 5 categories & 5 comments for this theme to render correctly”…

    for me, a theme should be very much flexible with the blog content so am not a fan of themes which rely on images and psd modifications…

    Forgive for English language. How it is possible to alter css that navigation was displayed on the right, to make mirror display of a template.Navigation in this case interests, float:left does not leave.

    How do you enable widgets? THis is all the readme.txt says:

    “8. The theme ca be used with or without widgets. You will find the content displayed in the following files (if you choose not to use widgets):”

    Ok, so where is the step to use it WITH widgets? :)

    Hello, I find that this template is really wonderful.
    Hum..Can I adapt this to another support blog ? Like Pluxml.
    And after can I release my modification on the Pluxml’s template gallery ?
    Moreover a link would be present in the footer and the support’s link would re-aimed towards here.

    I hope you have understood that I’ve write because I can’t write english very well =)
    You can answer to me thanks to my e-mail^.
    Thanks a lot!

    Ich finde das Design großartig, aber wie kann ich die featured article anzeigen lassen? Bei mir bleibt der Bereich leer. Bitte um Antwort!

    Gruß, Sascha

    This may be a dumb question, but for the images like “contact”, etc. How do I add my own email so when the person clicks the image, they end up sending an email to me?

    Love this theme but am wondering if there is a way to make the extra columns at the bottom (Categories, Most Discussed, Links) extend down as you add text in there. It seems as though I am limited to only 9 categories and if I create more categories than that the category list extends down but the grey background in the Categories box does not extend. Any help is greatly appreciated!

  255. 255

    It’s very cool, I like it.

  256. 256

    Cool design. I like it lots. Thanks

    This is a great theme. The only problem I am having is the archive page. I’ve created a page named “archives” w/ the archives theme set for that page. I cant get it to show up when you click the archive button in the navigation bar. When I click that button is says the archive page address is “http://fiala06.com/?page_id=18″ when its actally “http://fiala06.com/archives”.

    Hello ….
    You can use a nice theme ….
    Can I ask you something …??

    Posting images on the left sidebar and featured parts Why’d you want to know

  262. 262

    I uploaded your theme to wordpress and was messing with the widgets. I can not figure out how to get any desired widgets to show on the page. The only sidebar content is what was coded in php – nothing from wordpress will show. How do I add widgets to the sidebar on this theme?


  263. 263

    Thanks for a great theme.

    In order to get the pictures work in Featured, you need to add this code into colum-one.php

    ID, $key, true); ?>

    My version is at http://www.clausbonne.com/wordpress

    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of the font used for the title logo? I love the theme but would just like to re-title the logo in the same font.

  267. 267

    Though this theme looks great, from the perspective of somebody who is now going through the back end, THE GUY WHO BUILT IT WAS RETARDED. I have never seen such a restrictive overly complex system. It takes advantage of very little of what makes wordpress user friendly in its refusal to be compatible with the widget system and the blatant disregard for the fact that if you want other people to use your theme, YOU NEED TO MAKE IT FLEXABLE. Then to make things worse, it requires several plugins that really have nothing to do with what makes a blog design great. I’ve pretty much had to rebuild half the stuff you did, and after redesigning the colour scheme and graphics, I am giving you NO CREDIT.

  272. 272

    First I would like to thank you for this excellent theme.

    However I have one small issue with it. At the moment I am running WordPress 3.3.1 and when I make a post with pictures in it the layout is distorted when I actually click on the image. This obviously does not happen when I remove the link from the image.

    I guess that WordPress has it’s own way of navigation through images in a post marked as “Gallery” that does not work well with this theme.

    There is a workaround for this, if you force it to open in a different window but I would like to have people cycle the images on the site just like it works with the default WordPress theme.

    Any input is appreciated.

  273. 273

    I love the theme!!! … and I am excited to get to work with it, but when I try to install the ZIP file, I get the message:

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    I have installed 2 other themes “trying them out” for this site and had no issues.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.


    P.S. I tried unzipping the file, rezipping it, editing the style sheet and rezipping, and I can see it.

  274. 274

    Read the ReadMe :)
    For your Archives page, Edit the page and use the archive template (on the right, under the save button)

  275. 275

    Make sure the path is correct, usually that’s the source of the problem. Good luck!

  276. 276

    to make the images appear, make sure to use the img src code in your extra field – once you create the “thumb” extra field, input it something like this –

    Put the full path just to be safe, and you should be good to go. Took me a bit to figure that one out :)

  277. 277

    The easiest way would be to edit the image “logo.gif” and change it to say something else. It has a transparent background, so if you make a new image make sure to make it .gif or .png with a transparent background, with the same name. Just overwrite the old image file.

    Hope that helps!

  278. 278

    Really a nice theme but extra column is used that is decreasing its beauty

  279. 279

    VERY new to WordPress. Using this theme for my webpage and I love it BUT I need to add my cpomany logo where the name of the site shows up in the top header. I don’t really know anything about CSS or coding. Sounds like people in prior posts have tried but are having issues.Any help you can provide to do this would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully you have an updated version with this and a custom header image coming soon! Thanks.
