WordPress Theme – Xplosive

KABOOM! Yes…… I have named this new theme as Xplosive and it will surely blow you away! You can consider it as one of the best WordPress themes released on our website. It is a fully XHTML complaint, Web 2.0 theme meant for modern bloggers. If you are a blogger who likes to go with the times, this is for you!! Xplosive has two sidebars (both on the right side as requested by many here) and has a very pro look to it. It comes with a Blue-Orange color schema.

Edit : Reduced the width of the theme to fit into 1024×768 resolution.

Hello my loved one! I want to say that this article is amazing, great written and come with almost all vital infos. I would like to look more posts like this .

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

After study several of the web sites for your web site now, i truly like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will also be checking back soon. Pls check out my website also and figure out if you agree.

Hey, this is a bit irrelevant, but I noticed your blog page loaded lightning fast compared to mine. So I was wondering are you using dedicated hosting or shared hosting? thanks.

Lovely theme. I saw this theme in action on another site and got redirected to this page. I am planning to use this theme on my site now. Thanks a lot for sharing your efforts.

Hi, Jai.

The following:

Use this excellent template, which he edited a bit.
But I have a question: how to enlarge the size of the workforce, so that you will find full size?

(use Firefox)

Thank you, greetings

Bye

Jai: I must be the worst graphic designer in the world. Actually, I am not a graphic designer at all — that’s why I use WordPress and WordPress themes.

Anyway — I did download the blank headers, and I did find the Paint program, and I have tried — for HOURS now — to add my blog’s name and description line to that blank header.

I have figured out how to add the text — how to change the font and the size — and position it where I want it. But there is one huge glitch I can’t get past no matter what I try.

I keep selecting WHITE as the color of my text, but it keeps appearing as a shade of blue, just like the color of the Aqua header I am using. I can’t make that text white no matter what I do.

@Terry : Please download the blank header file from the link that I gave you (whatever color suits you the best) , edit it and then replace the existing header file.

For editing, you don’t really need to use fireworks. You can make changes by opening the image in any image editor. Even MS Paint.

OK, Jai. This is very frustrating. I read the post you referred me to, and I have tried to follow your instructions.

(1) First I looked into modifying a header using Fireworks. However, it looks like Fireworks costs $300! Can’t afford it — and don’t know how to use it.

(2) So, I tried modifying my “css” and “header” files as you suggested. I’m not a web designer, but I gave it a shot. I inserted the commands you specified. I ended up with the name of my blog on the navigation bar — not in the header.

I really want to use your theme, Jai. Please tell me how to do it. Thanks.

Jai…I really like Explosive. I have looked at hundreds of WP Themes in the last couple of days, and I think it is my favorite. (I also like it better than Explosive Reloaded).

One HUGE problem though. I assumed when I loaded up your theme that it would swap out the name of my blog in place of the word “Explosive.” Instead, I still have “EXPLOSIVE” across the top of the page. Unfortunately, that’s not the name of my blog.

I am tooling around in the files, and I see your note that I need to Photoshop a new header? I don’t have Photoshop or know how to use it. That’s the whole idea of WordPress Themes, right — is that I DON’T have to be a graphic designer to use them.

Am I missing something? Is there an easy way to give my Explosive-themed blog ITS OWN NAME — and not lose the beauty of your header design?

Hey jai! thnx for all the great themes you share with us. I always love it when you release a new theme.

I love it that you gave us different empty headers, but I was just wondering what type of font you have used for the header of this theme!

Keep up the great work

Very fantastic theme. Keep on good work jai. 🙂 Ps: jai can you give tutorial how to make tab in your blog like popular post,top commenter, etc at yout top header?

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let
you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get
the issue fixed soon. Kudos
