The all new default theme for WordPress. TwentyTen brings in new Menu’s, background and Image headers and other great new features.
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.
This framework’s code is completely free and open source. You can use it for creating publicly-downloadable themes, client work, or even a commercial theme business.
Second xScape based WordPress theme is photoScape. It has clean and simple block design and is based on only 4 colors. It has 12 default styles built in, each one using only 4 colors and some of them with background images, some without. First idea for usage of the theme is for photography based website and that’s why default thumbnails displayed are larger than it’s usual, making them dominant on the page.
As usual, theme has a BluePrint CSS behind it’s layout and is fully valid with both CSS 2.1 and XHTML 1.0. During the development of this theme, new module for xScape has been made for adding Google Maps into posts, and it’s also now standard element of the framework. To see what else is built in, check out links on the left for theme specific features, and also full framework features.
Ex Libris was designed for writers and typophiles. Lacking fancy graphical bells and whistles, we focused our attention, instead, on making your content readable with full typographic control. Ex Libris features a unique approach to choosing the typography for your site. Rather than relying on the tired basic web fonts, we’ve embedded the gorgeous free fonts from font foundry exljbris, giving you freedom to style your site with access to full font families and unique typefaces, while maintaining a consistent visual style. We’ve also built the theme with a unique, optional home page layout (Magazine Style, pictured above), and kept an uncluttered approach to page layouts.
If you’re a writer, if you love minimalism, clean design and unique typography, Ex Libris was made for you. Literally.
AP Museum zine is a unique magazine-style WordPress theme suite with 3 distinct skins, custom font calls, social networking integration, full advertising integration, a total of 9 interchangeable background wallpapers, and widgetized sidebar and footer boxes. It’s Dynamic Content Gallery-ready, meaning that if you install and set up Studiograsshopper’s DCG plugin, the code is already built-in to integrate it into the site with notes in the backend for optimal DCG width. zine now has font controls, allowing you to choose what fonts you want to use for the text of the site, or, optionally, customize or turn off the custom fonts embedded in the 3 skins. AP Museum zine is named for the underground fanzine movement of the 90s and early 2000s, and takes its grunge style from the handmade, xeroxed ‘zines that defined the ‘zine scene.
newsScape is the xScape based theme that is made for news or general blog websites. But, due to amount of features you can set, this theme can be made to be used for many different things.
newsScape is released with 12 base color styles. One color is changed with each style, and that one color can be set through control panel to generate new style. Theme also can utilize font settings for the theme including font family and font sizes. For front page you can use 2 different layouts: news and standard (archive like). For single post and page layouts there are also 2 layouts available, one of them showing the meta block on the left side of the post and that can be useful if you have many things to show there.
