WordPress Theme – Digital Statement

Published On November 10, 2008
511 Comments Leave a Comment

Following the footsteps of the much successful theme Statement, comes another free WordPress theme from Blog Oh! Blog called – “Digital Statement”. This can also be called as Version 2.0 of the Statement theme because it takes all the code and converts it into a modern, more visually appealing, and with better functionality.

This version of the theme has been created by the owner of Neowster.com who gladly gave it to me for a free public release. With neat stuff like featured posts’ slide show, a nice navigation (for both pages/sub-pages and categories), content tabs, Twitter posts, site navigation, this theme is a winner 🙂

How to set up Digital Statement?

This theme makes use of plugins and custom scripts that have to be installed before you start using this theme. Here are the steps that will help you set up the theme properly :-

  • When you download and extract the theme’s zip file, you will see a plugins folder along with the theme. Install and activate all plugins in the package to your wp-content/plugins directory.
  • To setup twitter, go to http://twitter.com/badges/html, copy the javascript to the footer.php file in the theme folder, replacing lines 58 – 59
  • This theme has a featured component (top right) which can pull posts and display them as a neat slide show along with corresponding images (done through custom fields). The posts are pulled from a particular category which can be specified in the gallery.php file of the theme. Open gallery.php file and change the category ID (cat=) in line 14 :-

    For the slide show images, you will have to make a custom field with each post in the category with the key => “gallery_image” and value will be the upload path of the image.

    Get more information here. Also, remember that you will at least need two minimum posts (with custom field set) before the slide show will work properly.

  • This theme also features a login box sliding panel on the top. For the login box to appear in the panel, you need to go to Admin > Settings > Membership > and check the “Anyone can register”.
  • For the thumbnail images next to the posts on the index.php file, you will have to create a custom field called “Image” with every post.
  • In order to display the “About” section on the right sidebar, your admin email will need to be associated with gravatar, and you will need to fill up the “Biographical Info” in the Admin > Users section.
  • Finally, setup flickrRSS (a plugin is used to accomplish this) to link to your Flickr account. Set it to display 10 square images from Flickr.com. For the 11th image, it is a custom setup which you can edit in footer.php on line 16.

This theme has been tested on WordPress 2.6, Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox without any problems. (As a tribute to Obama being the new American President, I have used his photos for the theme testing. If you don’t like him, please don’t feel offended 🙂 He is the new president after all…)

Demo & Download


What next?

Well, let me know if you like this new theme and do NOT forget to take part in the ongoing contest 🙂

Subject: Thumbnail Solution for WordPress 3.1

Hi All,

Here’s the solution for the thumbnail problem in WP 3.1.

1) Open the post where you want to add an image
2) Click ‘Screen Options’ (top-right of screen)
3) A menu should drop down – Click ‘Custom Fields’
4) Go to the bottom of the screen and find the Custom Field menu
5) Enter the word, Image, into the ‘Name’ field.
6) Enter the image URL into the ‘Value’ field

There’s nothing that says “custom field” in the backend and your instructions merely say this:

“For the slide show images, you will have to make a custom field with each post in the category with the key => “gallery_image” and value will be the upload path of the image.”

what am missing herte 🙁 i like this theme sooo much

joels Reply

1. the silder will visible when you have at least 2 post with custom field “image” and “Gallery” with in..

2. about the footer you should edit manually to add your own twitter scripts.. (view sources my blogs)

3. at the top of the page is custom admin bar by themes, when its visible if you in “admin mode” or logged into admin panel

its not to difficult if you know a little bit about simple rules of html codes..

Like this theme so much. Thanks providing this for FREE to us.

I installed it and actived it on my blog. But I can’t active the following plugins .

1. subscribe to comments.

2. Alink

3. Ultimate Tag Warrior

What’s wrong with it and how to fix it? WordPress version 3.0

Two more questions hope you can help to answer.

1. How can I add more button and link back to other web pages ( blog is located in a file folder not under main domain) on the navigation bar?

2. I don’t want to use flicker RSS feed. Is there any way I can use my own product image and link back to the sales letter page at current locations which flicker images are?

Thanks for your time review this and help me out. I really do appreciate for it.

I’m not able to get this theme to look good at all. It doesn’t look anything like the demo. The sidebar shows below the latest posts and latest posts are moved all the way to the right. I’ve enabled all the plugins and configured them, but alas, it doesn’t work. It looks like a nice theme, but I’m going to assume it doesn’t work with the latest stable wordpress release.

Nice layout idea, but it seems to break on Firefox. I’ve looked at it in both Windows and Ubuntu versions of Firefox – with the same results: the right-hand column images are WAY too big – overflowing the frame of the sidebar both to the right, and out the bottom.

hello, i’d like to ask something, is there a bug or something related to the flickrrss? I just can’t fix it. I encountere several problems as well regarding its compatibility with wordpress 2.7 and up. so may I ask if the demo for digital statement uses wordpress 2.6???

The theme experiences serious layout problems… The creator pls. update the code and work around… Not all pages get messed up but many(most) pages.. The sidebar is pushed down… Also it’ll be better the thumb nail resizer resizes any image on post and not only those direct wordpress uploads.. A similar resizer is available for blogger may be I’ll send those urls if u r interested.. That worked fine when my blog was hosted on blogger…

Ohhhh – I just love this theme – but I think it looks quite difficult in installing it. Still considering it.

Currently I’m using Firebug-theme by Blog Oh Blog – but will it give me any problems in trying to install this theme and still be able to switch back (without any problems) to the old one which I have made som modifications to.

I really don’t wanna loose all my posting etc. Can I switch back and forth when ever I want?

And does all the plug-ins enterrupt the old theme?

Jo Jobe Reply

Great theme thanks.

Am just starting out with WordPress and have really limited experience with php so apologies if this is obvious but I would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.

I intend to have multiple authors and I’m assuming that the author details for each post would appear on the post page in the author_box div. Ideally it would also display the last posting author on the home page.

If I insert the about_box div into the loop in index.php it displays the correct author for the post so I know the function works. However if the div is in the sidebar, as it is in the template, it displays one author’s details for all pages.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, you can, I have done it. You need to edit it in footer.php, and then read the code line by line, and edit parts you don’t want, to something you want.

Just a small question. Is there any way to implement so that this theme with the featured section and everything combined with the timthumb automatic resizer for the images in the index and featured section?

So that you won´t have to sit and make small images of every single image.

Otherwise I really like the theme.

Steve Reply

hello, i like the theme.
one mod i did is: if you want to add an image in your post and do not set one in the custom image field, you have to change the code in the index.php like this:

<a href=”” rel=”bookmark” title=””><img src=”” title=””/>

<a href=”” rel=”bookmark” title=”Read the rest of “><img src=”/images/no-img.gif” title=””/>

if the code is not showing here, try the url: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/201109?replies=4

I’m having one very big issue. the “Title Tags” are not working with All-In-One Seo, I know its the template because when I switch to the original “Kubrick” theme the page titles display, when I go to the Digital Statement theme every page just shows my blogs name.

Thanks for this awesome theme!

I’ve just implemented it in my website, I’ve got some lil doubts due to my lack of css knowledge but it doesn’t matter!

It works!



Shannon Reply

where the heck do you put the images for the “Image” custom field??? If you name the custom field “image” what do you put in the value box?

May seem obvious to some, but for the rest of us, add it in the “how to” area please.

Can anyone tell me how to integrate Facebook Connect with this theme. I’m using the sociable plugin at


This theme has been heavily modified and the plugin was setup for the Kubrick theme. I believe this would be a great benefit if a “Facebook Connect Button” was in the comments section so facebook users could log in as themselves.

However once installed no buttons occur because of template changes. Any suggestions?

With Chinese version of wordpress 2.7, i’am having fatal errors:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_related_posts() in /home/cmy/public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/Digital Statement/single.php on line 35

Line 35 is a empty row.

How can I solve it?

I like this theme and the slideshow feature but I was hoping their was a way to turn off the requirement of showing an image. There are times I want to post something that doesn’t have an image and it seems that the placeholder is still there.

hi, i like your theme but i want to know something… in which part of de code do you manage how much preview text do you show… for example i wrote a post and in the main page it only appear like a summary that we have to click in order to see the whole POST… i would like to have more words in the preview… THANKS!!

The theme is great but I just have a problem

I see the thumbnails in the index but when I select a category page the thumbnails it doesn´t appear.

Where is the code or plugin that controls the thumbnail because I assume that in the category section there is an error

I would appreciate your answer

Thanks in advace

Hey jai 😀 you’ve done great jobs! Love the template thats soo professional look, yet simple to render (wic means easier as SEO).

I would like to give u credits on my blogs later on. Thanks again for ur hard works 🙂 ! u rocks!

I’ve been using this theme for about a month now, and all of a sudden the sidebar broke today. I don’t *think* I did anything to it. It stopped pulling all the images into the slick slideshow. Now it just overlaps all the images above and below the rest of the sidebar content.

In addition, the pulldown at the top, the one where you either log in or click to go to the Dashboard, stopped working, too. Now it just shows the contents, no pull-tab.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Here’s my work on the theme.

It took a while to get everything set up and working. I decided to get rid of the flickr bar on the bottom.

Hi, I’ve been used this theme for a month and I think it’s really great. I’ve traslated to my language and added pagined comments to use it with wp 2.7.
I’m really enthusiastic!

One other question: is there any way to get the end of the excerpt to have something other than the ellipses at the end (like [read more…] or something)? Thanks for the help!

luna Reply

I love the layout, I’m using it on my blog. I just wanted to let you know though, that an important core function is missing and causes several plugins to not work. You are missing the wp_footer() function in the footer.php file. My stats stopped working when I switched to this theme. I’ve read that this missing function causes several different plugins to not work.

Just a head’s up.

Luke Reply

Thanks so much for the theme; I love it! One question, though – is there any way to make the images & posts in the “gallery” function rotate a little faster (right now each one displays for what feels like an eternity)?

Thanks for the help!

Hey, it’s work on WP 2.7 release! BTW, I am going to translate this template to Bahasa Melayu (ms_MY). Love the featured post and trying to make the themes load faster and smoother.

Also I noticed that the featured post will ‘splash’ the HTML code before it come to works.

mike Reply

Another Problem: I was using “statement” before digital statement, this new theme (for me) wont display the title on individual post pages like it used to in statement, digital statement is doing something to prevent this, I tried switching back to statement and wha la, the story titles are displayed on top of the browser like they should be, then switched back to digital statement and the same thing, it just displays the same site description on all pages as the title, I cant help but notice that you dont have this problem here……….. any suggestions?…….. I even tried using the all in one seo plugin to no avail….. any ideas?


Ken Reply

Everything works fine and the template is terrific. How did you get the flickr module to direct clicks to your flicrk photostream instead of zooming open in the blog?


Jacqui Reply

Great theme! I have used it and modified it here http://couchavenue.com/ however I am having a problem with the “Author” tag where when you go click on a post, the About the Author disappears and so does the picture. I only have one user on this wordpress blog is there something wrong or something I can fix?

Also the commenting is a bit ugly where the smileys mess things up.

Christian Reply

I love the theme and I am trying desperately to get it to work. It looks pretty good already but I can’t figure out how to arrange the widgets in tabs.

I’d appreciate someone’s help

Gib Reply

I’m enjoying this theme a lot.

A few Questions:


Is there a plugin available anywhere that would automate thumbnails for past posts?

Is there a way to omit the blank thumbnail slot on posts that don’t have a thumbnail image?

Flickr – 11th Photo

I can’t get mine to do whatever it’s supposed to. Can we disable this feature and just show 10 images?


Can we disable the twitter box entirely?

Editing the file has been a problem and I prefer TwitterTools because it doesn’t publish @ replies.

Thanks for the great theme!

Nikki Reply

Hi. I can’t get the flickrrss to work either. Have put in my group pool id and still see a picture of a lady at the bottom of the screen (not my photo).

Also, it says twitter updates at the very bottom left of my page – i guess i’ve mucked something up there?

Apart from that, I’m having great fun setting this up and loving the theme!!

Actually, a good alternative (for just a featured slideshow as used in most themes) could be the Agile Carousel for Jquery. In a WP theme I would choose that over Smoothgallery, just because it runs on jQuery and does the job well.



ronald Reply

It’s a shame that there isn’t a jQuery alternative to JonDesign’s Smoothgallery, which utilizes the mootools library.

Javascript libraries do tend to conflict, so I personally always try to avoid loading both the jQuery and the Mootools library. WP developers have choosen to use jQuery for WP.

For me, in principle (!) that rules out the use of another library, and unfortunately there are so many (jQuery, Mootools, Dojo, YUI, Prototype etc.)

What are your thoughts on this?

Note: recently an attempt has been made to create a jQuery version for Smoothgallery (s3slider: http://www.serie3.info/s3slider/), but it’s quite buggy, not very well coded and doesn’t do well in FF. Anyone challenged to enhance that, I am sure you will make loads of jQuery friends! 😉

Lovely theme, i’m trying it out right now.
The only thing i’m having trouble with is the Featured Post.
I can not get this to work for the life of me.
I have created several posts with Image in Custom fields, but still nothing.
I’ve seen through the comments and had a look at some websites where this theme is used and they have gotten it to work, so i’m wondering what im doing wrong.

Do you have ANY idea what so ever that might cause this thing to fail?
Like some sort of settings i have set up wrongfully or something?

WP Newbie here (2 weeks to be exact). 1st, I volunteered to build a website for a non-profit, 2nd, I found WP easy to learn, 3rd, I stumbled upon your Theme and found (almost) everything needed for the site, 4th, I tweaked a little learning the code from other themes, 5th, I really have no idea what I am doing, so pointing me somewhere would be helpful… 🙂

I have no idea how to keep the log-in tab in this theme and not allowing people to freely register. (i have a few more questions but i’ll take it slow if someone is willing to help. tnx)

another positive about my site unlike all the other sites.. i will pay you out daily.. so you earn 5 bucks in the first 5 minutes you work on my site.. request a payout and i will pay you out right then.. i guarantee no other sites like mine will pay out daily multiple times..

i’d be glad to help you.. if you sign up..

@Ashish:- The ‘set’ option is not mandatory. All you will need to fill is your ID number which can be derived using the idGettr link in the settings.

Also, you should specify the following in the second option :-

‘user’ items using ’10’ ‘square’ images.

Scott Reply

Its a great design jai! Only thing I noticed is that the thumbnails are an odd size and makes my thumbnail images look weird. Other than that its great…

Rarst Reply

Hmmm… It looks very good but I don’t see it as Statement successor. Statement main area has blocky looks that create borders naturally – strong part of its appeal to me. And high-contrast between areas which DigiStatement lost by expanding color scheme.

Ideal update to Statement in my opinion would be remaking header and footer areas without touching the middle. I am having such updates custom designed for me… If it ends up good I’ll consider pitching it to you for free release. 🙂
