News Time Theme

I just finished up a theme I have been working on a for a little while. It’s a 4-column theme called News Time. You can see it in action at or on The English Guy. It has 3 main columns where the posts get put and a sidebar to the right for search, last posts, archives, advertising and so on.

What’s a little different about it is that you can change how it’s laid out by changing just one variable in index.php. It can be laid out:-

  • with posts going from left to right then repeating layer by layer,
  • by category (three categories are needed at least),
  • by equal number in each column filling left then middle then right in that order.

Update

News Time 1.1 is now out – what is different? There are some updates that I have chronicled in the CHANGELOG.txt that comes with the release, but here they are:

  • comments are now clearer and more separated; comments appear in their own box, mouseover effect (in mozilla browsers)
  • sidebar now shows categories
  • featured post on the front page, shows the latest post in that category
  • search is fully implemented with a search results page (search.php) and the search box in the sidebar
  • added page.php so it handles pages just like singles

See this theme in action on The English Guy.

First, this theme requires 1.5+ Once you have downloaded the theme, unzip it and:

  1. Upload the unzipped theme to your wp-content/themes/ directory.

Frequently Asked Questions

None so far! It is a simple unzip, install and off you go. You can edit the theme as you wish (it IS commented a little bit). If you have any questions, you can comment here, or you can go over to the WordPress Forums where I started a News Time Theme thread.
