Modern: A WordPress Template

Download: Modern.zip 0.9

Modern | WordPress Theme | version 0.9

Modern is a light, simple and modern theme for WordPress 1.5 or above. Page links in Modern are layed out horizontally at the top—rather than in the sidebar—creating a clearer distinction between permanent and updated content. For this reason, it is not recommended to use a great number of pages with this theme. Currently, only top-level pages are displayed in the top section—making it possible to exclude pages from appearing there.

Modern uses one slightly less common type-face—if present, the blog title is type set in Galliard (if not it downgrades gracefully). Only two image-files are used. The theme strives to use as semantic markup as possible and should validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 2.1. Modern has been tested in Opera 9.0 beta, Firefox 1.5 and Internet Explorer 6.0.

Features

  • Fast and light
  • Easy to use: well-structured css-file, no plug-ins required
  • Page and Archive pages included
  • Supports theme preview in WordPress 2.0
  • Careful typography and use of whitespace

Installation

After you download Modern, unzip it and upload it to your <WP_INSTALL>/wp-content/themes/ directory. Then log into WordPress and activate the theme from within your presentation panel.

    Hi,
    I want to have comments on the pages. Is it possible? I have them enabled but see nowhere for people to click to comment on the page.

  9. ugg outle Says:

    This is such a great theme, Ulf.

    Does anybody know how I can change following: At the moment, name of my blog is the same as the name written with orange letters. Is that possible to changee?

    And is it possbile to make differnt titles on the stativ pages, than the title on the menu on the top of the pages? ”Like where ”home is, could have a different headline on the page which it is reffering too?

    Thanks a lot!

  10. Ulf Pettersson Says:

    Yes, of course it is possible to have comments on pages. Design a template-page which includes a comments-section (like on this page). Then select that template from within WordPress and apply to the page in question.

  11. Ulf Pettersson Says:

    ugg outle:
    Yes it is possible to change. Just change the color of the blog-title in the .css -file.

  12. snackers list Says:

    Great info and theme. Ulf, do you think you might put in a help forum so people can help each other and find solutions easier? Also, anyone successfully widgetized or added a left sidebar as well?????? It’d be tremendously, stupendously appreciated if one of you coders could do a write up on one. ;)…nice……..

  13. Cathy Says:

    Hi,

    I’m new to word press and wondering if there is a way I can add the tagline of my blog to the title box, underneath the orange text?

    Thanks
    Cathy

    Awesome theme!
    I really like it that it’s clean and small. Most themes out there are trying to fit everything into the design. Sometimes you just want something small. This is it! Great thanks!

    Love your theme btw! Minimalist is the way to go i think. My readers are seeming to enjoy how easy it is for them to navigate around. I intend to try this theme on a few affiliate sites too as see if it can be applied there as well. Thanks
