WordPress Theme of The Month: The Morning After

Yes, I know there are still a few days until November. I figured I’d publish the November theme a little ahead of schedule though. This month’s theme is called The Morning After.

WordPress Theme of the Month: 4WPTP

4WPTP is a 4-column WordPress theme with a real cool look. The header is easily the best part, featuring plenty of room for a logo, an add, a search box, and some links. All that fits seamlessly into the slick header.

Too bad it’s a four-column theme. Four columns is really too many for any blog, and it not only makes it look cluttered, but it makes the content are much too narrow. If you put your mind to it, it wouldn’t be too hard to take a column or two out.

Overall, 4WPTP is a cool-looking theme.

WordPress Theme of the Month: Blog Oh Blog

This month’s highlighted WordPress theme is Blog Oh Blog, which is a copy of the design used by BlogOhBlog.com, the creator of the theme.

It’s a three column layout, with a fixed 990px width, and plenty of good spots for sticking AdSense ads. It’s fairly simplistic, though not too much so. Take a look and download it if you wish.

WordPress Theme of the Month: Vertigo Red

Vertigo Red is a great theme, available in both a 2-column and a 3-column version.

For the uninformed, “2-column” means the theme has a content column and a sidebar. “3-column” means the theme has two sidebars.

In the case of Vertigo red, the two sidebars are both on the right. This is a current trend, that works well for some sites, though it limits the space available for content. Personally, I’d go with the 2-column version (which is the one pictured to the right).

Vertigo Red is a traditional-style blog theme, listing the most recent posts down the front page, unlike the innovative Gridlock theme, which only shows three posts on the main page.

WordPress Theme of the Month: Gridlock

Well, you WordPress users out there have a tough job when it comes to finding the good themes. Sure, you can make your own, but what if you don’t have the expertise (or you’re too lazy). So, I’ll be trying to point you towards some of the better ones in the coming months.

This month’s theme is Gridlock, by Hyalineskies.

Gridlock is a slick, magazine-style theme with an interesting history. As the author put it:

“Back when Gridlock was first released, very few blogs were running themselves as magazine-style, where different posts were displayed on the main page in an order other than a chronological list. Now, a webzine-style hierarchy is the trend. Gridlock offers a primary category and a secondary category setup for your posts; with this type of setup, you can give your readers their favourite content and have space left over for your personal things, all on the same page. Of course, you can always run Gridlock in standard mode with a traditional chronological order. If you want tradition, though, there are plenty of other WordPress themes out there.”

Sound good? Give it a test run if you’re in the market for a new theme.
