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

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

    Is there a way to use a custom menu with this theme like the default twenty ten theme?

  3. Zeaks says:

    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.

        thanks. Now can u tell me how can i set the maximum size of the thumbs in the grid mode?

        I try change the file loop-grid.php, this:

        <?php the_post_thumbnail(array(300,120, true), array('class' => 'alignleft post_thumbnail'));?>

        for this:

        <?php the_post_thumbnail(100,100); ?>

        but nothing happens :(
