I’ve had a couple of Hybrid child themes set back for the last few months just waiting to be released. The reason for the delay is because these themes were built exclusively for use with WordPress 3.0′s new features like the new nav menu system and custom backgrounds.
Outline is the first of these child themes for release. While it may look like a simple theme, I’ve put more thought and time into this theme than any other child theme I’ve released, and it’s definitely one of my favorites.
This is a blog theme, so you won’t find any fancy sliders or 100 posts blocked off into different sections on the front page. This theme was made to be elegant and allow your content to speak for itself.
Of course, you get all the features available in the Hybrid parent theme. But, Outline comes packaged with a few extras.
- Two menus (Primary Menu and Secondary Menu). These menus are collapsible, so if you don’t want to use either or just one of them, it’s your choice.
- Uses the WordPress custom background feature, so you can change your site’s background from the admin.
- Twitter integration with author post box. Blog authors can input their Twitter username (from their profile page in the admin) and have it appear in the author post box at the end of posts.
- Typography. Every possible element has been designed specifically to make your content stand out.
Download the theme
You must be running WordPress 3.0+ and have at least version 0.8 of the Hybrid parent theme to use this theme.
I hope you enjoy this release. Please ask any support questions you have in the support forums.
