Nearly-Sprung Wordpress Theme

Heya,

This site is run using the wordpress blog software. While setting it up I couldn’t find a theme that I liked, so I decided to make my own.

Nearly-Sprung is a rework of Becca Wei’s “Almost Spring” using the same orange and green colour scheme. However I modified it to be a three column blog with fluid centre column, and optimised for vertical layout so its possible to not have any vertical scrolling on a 1024×768 screen.

Nearly-Sprung ScreenshotI have built in support for the following plugins:
-Tags
-Gravatars
-Sidebar widgets (two columns)
-Photopress v1.1
-Geo Mashup v1.1 (requires patch to enable map styles)
-Next/Previous Post in same Category plugins (Richard Maxwell v1.0 version)
-Viper’s plugin list Plugin

Also note that to have random header backgrounds, just drop in a 80 pixel high jpg starting with the name “headerbackground-” and it’ll automatically be picked up and used.

Feel free to download and use on your own site. The code is GPL except the header image supplied, which is under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 License.

Notes

If you want to edit the column widths, then first read this article. Then edit the top of style.css accordingly. You then need to change the widths on the following properties so that the links are the right width as well:
#leftsidebar ul ul li a
#leftsidebar ul ul ul li a
#rightsidebar ul ul li a
#rightsidebar ul ul ul li a

Secondly, the way that next/previous links for the main page has changed, you need to delete the following lines in index.php:

<?php posts_nav_link(”, __(”), __(’&laquo; Previous entries’)); ?>
<?php posts_nav_link(’ &#183; ‘, __(”), __(”)); ?>
<?php posts_nav_link(”, __(’Next entries &raquo;’), __(”)); ?>

and replace it with:

<?php posts_nav_link(’ &#183; ‘, __(’&laquo; Next entries’), __(’Previous entries &raquo;’)); ?>
