Simple Gray is a minimalist WordPress theme we did a couple years ago. Having not touched it once in over a year, with the launch of Museum Themes, we figured it was time to revisit it. We’ll be revamping all our old free themes and officially releasing some of the ones we never got around to. Added features to Simple Gray are Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, Google’s Droid Sans web font, and some nice css3 shadows for browsers that can see them.

Twitter is everywhere. So why not in your WordPress Dashboard? WordPress Dashboard Twitter is a Dashboard Widget that displays Twitter @replies, direct messages, sent messages, Retweets, Friends Timeline and favorites the convenient way within your WordPress Dashboard. WordPress Dashboard Twitter turns your Dashboard into a Twitter client.
The Dashboard widget lets you update your status, send direct messages, follow your mentions and retweets, list direct messages, sent messages, your friends timeline and your favorites in a simple tab interface. All in a single widget. No seperate admin page needed. All the Twitter stuff you need right where you need it.
At a glance:
- Twitter OAuth authentication
- Adds a Twitter Client to your WordPress Dashboard only
- Display Mentions, Direct Messages, Sent messages, Retweets, Timeline and Favorites in a tabbed interface
- Reply to a Twitter status or Direct Message from within the Dashboard Widget
- No dedicated page in your WordPress admin panel
- All customization can be done through the Widget’s Configuration
- No impact on your blog’s frontend or other backend pages
- Shortening URLs with wp.gd or bit.ly
- One-Click-Image-Upload for TwitPic (currently disabled since version 1.0)
- Whenever you check your incoming links or WordPress News in the Dashboard, you can check your Twitter status as well
Sometimes you just need a basic widget that isn’t all packed with crazy options and included files. This plugin comes packaged as basic as you can get with no bells and whistles or anything useless. Just the bare essentials for doing what you need to do.
Now you can display your latest Twitter updates in your sidebar, and not have a ton of overhead or extra stuff slowing your site down.
WP-to-Twitter is an awsome WordPress-Plugin, which allows you to submit a shortmessage for every new Post you´ve submitted so far. You can configurate the URL-Shortening-Service and get a lot of new Users from the Social-Network Twitter.
erin’s sketchbook is a minimal WordPress theme we built for ourselves a couple years ago. It’s designed to be a good theme for art or photography, using a black background and minimal design to draw attention to the art or photography. It was based on another theme we did before that, Simple Black which, like Simple Gray, was a minimalist blog theme based around Kubrik. Since the two were closely related, we combined them, offering a theme options page to choose which style you prefer. We also added Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, and Google’s Droid Sans web font.
This theme, inspired by vintage Indian batiks and tapestries, exudes grace and sophistication. 6 color palettes are available so you can choose the one to fit your mood, office or season. Built into the theme are our normal treasure trove of customized social networking icons, automagic Twitter hovercards for @usernames and configurable tweet displays, and social bookmarking options on posts. The theme is optimized for readability and includes built-in WordPress post thumbnails, custom nav menu and widgetized sidebar and footer.

This theme celebrates artistry, exhibiting an antique frame, touchable fabric texture and hand-drawn stitching highlights. It has a rich, strong approach displaying soft colors, realistic textures which come together to make an unforgettable playful and unique finish.
This alluring theme’s colors and sensibility make it an ideal to use with a personal or creative website. It is rich with widgets and comes with two delicious color palettes, a dusky rosé and a pale powder blue to fit any season or mood.
Color Garden is a free theme released on Museum Themes under the GPLv3. This theme is jam-packed with features, from WordPress 3.0 functionality to Twitter integration. Color Garden uses WP3.0′s custom header option, and comes with 4 unique headers that accent the 4 color palette options available on the theme options page. We’ve also built in custom menus, custom backgrounds, and post thumbnails, hitting all the bases for cutting-edge WordPress functionality. If you use Twitter, we’ve got you covered there, too, integrating Twitter’s new Tweet button into our existing social sharing block on single post pages and providing options to display your latest tweets in the sidebar or the footer. The footer and sidebar are completely widgetized, and the footer has three distinct columns to add widgets. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve embedded a custom typeface in the header using CSS font-face. Each color palette has its own unique stylesheet, so you can easily use this theme as a framework or build child themes (or skins) for it.
