A simple Twenty ten child theme, this means you need to have Twenty Ten theme (default WordPress theme) installed in order for it to work.


- 6 color schemes with an added user style you can edit yourself.
- 4 post layout styles including post excerpts, excerpts with featured image, grid style and regular style
- Options in the admin section.
- A full width forum page template for embedding a forum or store IE:Vanilla forums, SimplePress etc.
- Grayscale icons include.
- Valid CSS

I’ve included a style template you can easily use to create your own style, I’ve also included a “user style”. You can edit this by going to the /styles folder and opening user.css in notepad and changing the colors. I’ve used a different visible color to make it easy to see which area the code changes.
If you create a nice style and want to share, email it to [email protected]

Screenshots – Since I can’t show all of the styles, layouts and the Admin options in the demo, here’s some screenshots.

    If you mean the custom menu widget, yeah, you can use it the same way you would in Twenty Ten. Nothing in this theme is changed from Twenty Ten because it's a child theme. All widget areas are still there, only the header image has been disabled.

      Yes, only the parent theme is overwritten, that’s the purpose of using a child theme. I haven’t updated this theme in a while, if you notice any issues, let me know and I’ll fix them.

      It’s designed to not use the header image, but if you want it, open functions.php and find

      Delete that block of code, then open style.css and find

      remove .branding img, from that line
