This month’s featured WordPress theme is Color Paper from Smashing Magazine.
Color Paper is the latest free WordPress theme from Smashing Magazine. It’s a two-column theme that feels fairly spacious and open.
The front page template looks great. The most recent post is highlighted nicely in a section that appears to be a piece of paper on top of the rest of the layout. Below that, the rest of the posts are arrayed, with little tab-piecing sticking out on the left for the timestamp. All of the posts are displayed as excerpts to conserve space.
The sidebar looks good, and has a width of 315 pixels, which is wide enough to fit a two-column block of 125×125 ads if you wanted.
Overall it’s a nice-looking theme especially suitable for a personal blog. The sidebar has room to display feeds from your digital life all over the web, which plenty of plugins will help you do.
