Corptheme

I take pleasure in presenting a brand new free WordPress theme for all my blog readers – Corptheme

This is a minimalistic theme which comes in four flavors – CorpBlue, CorpRed, CorpGreen & CorpBlack. I have made available all the four versions separately so that people can download the required color without the need of a CSS style switcher integrated into the theme. I have also integrated a drop down menu in this theme which will help you define your pages, sub-pages and sub-sub-pages easily. Now you don’t have to go hunting for this feature because it is not available in most free themes.

Here are some salient features of this new theme :-

1. Fully XHTML validated code
2. Four color schemes
3. Drop down for Pages and Sub Pages
4. Integrated drop downs for categories & archives
5. Separated Trackbacks and Comments
6. Stylized Comments
7. Professional Layout
8. Light Weighted (minimum images – icons only)

Download or test run all the versions from the following  links. All the feedback will be much appreciated.

Might be mostly unthinkable to find well-advised parties on this theme, unfortunately you appear like you fully grasp whatever you’re preaching about! Thank You..

Hi Jai. Thanks for sharing those themes. They are great clean themes. However I noticed that in Chrome, I’m having an issue, with the header and the search box. being partially covers by . The navigation bar is covering a part of the header. I’ll try to see if I can fix it from CSS. The rest of the browsers are just fine.
Anybody else having this issue ?

Corptheme renders wrong in Chrome. The top isnt set right and the nav bar is sitting in the header. Any chance you could fix this. I tested this out after installing the Blue version of the Corp theme.

Thanks, JC

Good work here.

I just install corpgreen but i have just one problem. The posts on the front page are showing fully and I don’t want this. I want the posts on the front page to be summarized and end with “Read More”. Pls what should I do?

Hi Jai,

Your themes look fantastic, I think I can stop looking elsewhere 🙂
I have a problem – the ‘Home’ button didn’t appear on the menu automatically after I activated the CorpBlue theme.
So I tried to add the page for ‘Home’ manually but I can’t link it to my homepage, it comes up as a separate page with the title ‘Home’ instead.
Can you help please? Thanks!

@Gabi:-

I’m trying to use my logo were the corpblue logo stands. I’ve tried changing the logo, changing the style.css, but the only thing that happens is that the corpblue logo disappears and reappears when I click on my site? How do I solve this?

Hi,
I use Corpthem (blue), it’ a very nice them.
I have a troubble, for post I need that the more recent post in the top of the page. For the moment it is the older post which is at the top. How i can modify this ? (excuse my bad english).
Thanks
Pascal

Hi Jai,

I added the Black version of this theme on my blog but I am not able to add comments. Can you check it for me? After a lot of research I found a decent theme and I don’t want to let it go.:(

@Gabi:-
Gabi, thanks for the response. However, I got frustrated and finally hired someone to take care of it for me. Since I’m not a coder, I didn’t want to mess up anything else.

@Valerie: You need to change the picture “logo.jpg” within your theme/images-folder. If cou can’t keep the size (maybe because your blog title is longer or you want to include a picture) you have to adjust the padding/marging values and sizes within style.css (#logo h1 a). Hope that helps…

This theme is nice and clean. However, a lot of questions have been raised here on customizing the logo to reflect the name of their blog. My question is how do I adjust the size of the logo within the header so I can make it bigger or more suited to the size of my title text?

Hoping for your reply.

Beautiful theme, beautifully customizable… One question thourgh: How to I get the odd and even comments sections to show up? Even in the demo the odd and even sets look all the same….

Jai, after losing my old blog I moved to another host and decided to use this Corptheme template. I really like the template but cannot seem to get the name of my blog to show up in the header. I thougt I just had to type it into “Blog Title” on the settings page. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Thank you very much Jai for making this theme. I hope you do not mind me editing it a little to fit my needs. It goes perfectly with the interior design site I have.

I really like the Corpblue theme, but can’t figure out how tho change the name from “Corpblue” to my blog’s name in the header. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Worth

Hi there,

Love the stuff you make… but there’s one minor issue. I can’t get any comments on sub-pages, which usually work on many other themes just not on the good ol’ Limeau Orange and CorpBlack.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Anyways, keep up the great work!

A solution for the WP Stats plugin would be very nice.

I don’t want to switch to another theme, but without the WP Stats I might.

@ Gopal: look in your theme folder. go to images. replace logo.jpg with your own logo (best idea is to make the logo in the same colour and size).

Great theme. I did notice one odd thing with the link to subscribing to comments for individual posts.

I am running WordPress Mu 1.3.3 (equivalent of 2.2.3). The regular feed link works fine for subscribing to all site posts, but the comments feed for individual posts has an extra ‘/’ in the hyperlink.

Ex: ‘http://yourblog.com/04/21/post-title//feed’

Obviously, this doesn’t work.

I fixed mine by changing ‘/feed’ to ‘feed’ in index.php, line 20 in the theme.

I believe it has to do w/ the way a person’s permalinks are setup. The default permalink structure has a trailing ‘/’ at the end on links.

Just thought I’d bring it up as I didn’t see a mention of this in the comments.

First of all, I love the theme. It’s what I’ve been looking for, however, I’m having difficulty with getting my WP stats to show up. Any suggestions? When offering suggestions please make sure it’s written for template dummies. Assume I know nothing and you’re assuming I know too much. Please….don’t write in Chinese, give me easy to understand instructions. Was that clear enough on how lost I am at this stuff? 🙂

love the template but need my stats

Hi!

First of all, thanks for this theme. Loving it. I have two issues with it though. After setting up my WP 2.5 blog, I installed your theme and installed the WordPress.com Stats plug-in, but it does not seem to be registering anything. I looked at the FAQ of this plugin and it said the following:

“What if the stats don’t start showing up? Do I need anything special in my theme?

Yes, your theme must have a call to at the very bottom right before the tag.”

Where exactly do I incorporate this? Or do you think my problem is of a different nature?

~ Bas

Great theme! I have one problem with it, though – actually I want to find out if it’s the theme or something else…

The tag doesn’t seem to work – for some reason it won’t break long posts into multiple changes. Has anyone else encountered this with this theme?

Very nice set of templates with consistant quality throughout.

Couple of questions/suggestions:

Where do you add alt text for title image (logo.jpg)?

For search results, to show a “Search results for…” heading:

After the following line in search.php…

Add the following…

Search Results for “” »

Thanks again for great themes with consistant standards.

Hi, I tried installing the corpred theme too, but strangely, my links are not showing up on the left side bar. Could you help please? Thanks plenty.

@MK: This is not a bug. Its done intentionally to bring the image on the header. Also, this keeps the SEO value intact because the search engine spiders go for the text.

MK Reply

@susan:

Looks like the stylesheet has a bug in the following line:
#logo h1 {text-indent:-10000px;margin:0;padding:0;}

This puts the title of the blog way over to the left so that it doesn’t show. This may have been intentional to show the image logo for “CorpColor” without overwriting it with the blog title.

To fix it you can edit the style.css as shown:

/**************** Header *********************/
#logo {float:left;}
#logo h1 a {text-indent:0px;margin:0;padding:0;font-size:33px;color:#ffffff;}
/*
#logo h1 a {display:block;background:url(images/logo.jpg) no-repeat left;width:187px;height:33px; }
*/

Hi there! Themes looks nice, but would it be easier for eg. wpmu-administrators to have one theme with 4 skins (selectable in theme options) than 4 separate themes?!

I have just downloaded Corp Red and like it very much. I am new to this. How do I change the header to reflect the title of my blog?

Thanks

Susan

@Lee Doyle: I think you have modified something in the stylesheet which is causing this. Try reinstalling the theme.

I really like your themes!
Before i have used your Chronicles theme, considering i changed my blog topic, i needed a new theme and this one suits everything!

tho i do think the font needs to be diffrent, but thats a matter of opinion and i can change it myself.

Thanks so Much for this lovely theme!

I try to use the theme .. crop blue. But when i switch to it an error appear as below..

/home/slrd/public_html/wp-content/themes/corpblue/index.php on line 23

If you could assist me on this. Thank you

Hi Jai,

Thanks for this nice theme! As i’m very new to CSS & Web design, i’m having trouble to change the width of deep backgroup color under menubar, so which codes i need to change to make the bar larger?

Thanks

Jai Reply

@jialat: You can go ahead and make them bold so that they stand out. Although they already are of different color.

Hi Jai,

I like minimalist themes and I like this theme a lots. There is 1 thing that I would like to check with you. Let’s say I want to make the hyperlink in this theme more obvious, how can I do it? I notice that for those words with hyperlinks, they look exactly the same like normal words, so reader may not be able to notice the hyperlinks.
Thanks

jialat
