WordPress Themes Blog Oh! Blog

My apologies for not updating the blog for so many days :). To make it worth your wait, I am launching a brand new free WordPress theme called “Bookish”. This is a small sized (80Kb) theme that comes in four color variations – Blue, Red, Green and Black. The theme comes with admin options that allow you to switch the color theme, change post text alignment (left/right), Twitter ID, change the featured post category and finally an option that lets you set excerpts or full posts on your home page.

bookish1

The theme is compatible with the latest WordPress 2.8, fully CSS/XHTML validated and has been tested with Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari browsers.

Using the theme

Download, extract the zip and place the theme folder in your wp-content/themes folder. Activate the theme and it will be ready to use. For the featured post on top, you will have to set up the category through the Bookish admin options. For the image, you will have to use custom field called “featuredimage” and upload an image of size 240×160 pixels with your featured post.

Test & Download

    The next issue that was raised by the commentors is the Widget problem.

    The theme IS widget enabled, it is missing a function in the theme function template.
    You will go into WordPress Classic Theme and steal the function that begins with:

    function_exists(‘register_sidebar’)

    And paste it in your Bookish template function php AFTER the custom option call and before the next line that starts with function.

    Your backend widget page should now work.

    I too didn’t use that theme because I didn’t have time to spot fix the bugs I found but now I do, so…

    1. Not displaying the feature post in single post mode.
    I do not know if it has been answered before but if you read the single post template there is a line which prevents the display of a duplicate post. You can delete this line to see your post displayed.

    if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue; update_post_caches($posts);

    2. Gravatar() not found in the comments template (in WordPress 3.x)
    You can remove the content of

    This is a very nice theme and I only recommend Jai’s themes to my WordPress customization clients.

      In my second part I meant the content of the div called ‘grav’, leave the div there to prevent wonky displacement.

    The file style.php in this theme has a bug.

    line 2: require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . ‘../../../../wp-config.php’);
    should modify to
    require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/../../../wp-config.php’);

    and some other bugs too

    Hello!

    What can i do to move the “pages” list into the sidebar?
    When i try to copy wp_list_pages into the sidebar, the list just wont show anything, except when i hover on the links. And when i press one of the links, ex top level, it only shows the level underneath. Not the other toplevel.

    What i want is to show the list of “first level” pages, and when someone clicks one firelevel with childlevels, i vant them to show.

    @Andy:- I have erorr page if follow this step. But I have been try delete $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID; in feauturepost.php it work done. But not good looking, cause the post not clean looking.

  18. Andy left a comment on November 30, 2009 at 11:32 pm |

    Ignore previous comment, that was bad advice. To fix the featured post issue not appearing when clicked, comment out the following line in single.php:

    if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue; update_post_caches($posts); ?>

    Mine looks like this:

    ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue; update_post_caches($posts); ?>

    You could always delete the second line as well leaving ?> to close the php, I just prefer the commenting method…

  19. Andy left a comment on November 11, 2009 at 11:17 pm |

    Found a possible fix for the “featured post not appearing issue.” If you look at featuredpost.php, check to see if the following:

    $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID;

    is on line 8. If so delete it and just move the >? to the end of the previous line which ends with $my_query->the_post();

    That should take care of the issue.

  20. Andy left a comment on November 9, 2009 at 8:29 am |

    I’m also having the featured post issue: not displaying the content after clicking “Read More.” Is there a fix yet? Thanks for the great template!

  21. Gunter left a comment on November 7, 2009 at 7:42 am |

    Great theme. I like it.
    But i have the same problem like Mark. When i use the “Read More” button, i can only see the comment box. The post is missing.
    That happens with every post which is in the featured post category.
    Any idea waht i am doing wrong?

    Hi Jai,

    I like this theme very much and I have installed it in my blog that is http://www.guptaanil.com.

    Theme is working all fine except sidebar. When I am trying to add any widgets in siderbar I am getting the error in wp-admin. Error is something like this.


    No Sidebars Defined

    The theme you are currently using isn’t widget-aware, meaning that it has no sidebars that you are able to change. For information on making your theme widget-aware, please follow these instructions. ”

    Can you help me to sort out this issue?

    Great job on creation of such a beautiful and simple theme. This is the perfect theme I am looking for.

  38. MArk H left a comment on August 1, 2009 at 12:45 pm |

    Cool theme, but I have a problem. For whichever post I have as a featured post, when I click the ‘read more’ button I get a page with just the comments for that post, the post is missing.

    Tested with a couple of posts and always the same behaviour. Is this something I’m doing wrong or a plugin I’m missing (already fixed the gravatar problem by loading a plugin).

    Problem can be seen at http://www.simplifimation.com.

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    This is an unusually different looking theme with the text aligned to the right as opposed to the normal way of being aligned to the left. Good work on the theme, its clean, and professional looking.
