WordPress Theme – ClearPress

Finally I am back from Vacation! :) (Also the reason for delayed posts).

To mark the beginning of year 2009, I am releasing a bright & colorful free WordPress theme – ClearPress. This is a unique WordPress theme which you will not find anywhere on the Internet. The unique feature about this theme is that it divides the blog posts into three separate columns. So, if you have set your blog to show 9 posts on the home page, they will be divided into 3 columns consisting of 3 posts each.


The theme also features a pull-down sidebar which is totally unobtrusive and contains three widgetized sidebars. ClearPress is Gravatar-ready, Image Gallery ready, and consists of beautifully styled comments and archive pages.

ClearPress has been tested on IE7, Firefox and Safari browsers without any problems. The CSS for the theme is commented and easy to modify for any WordPress user.

How to Install?

All you have to do is extract the theme folder (clearpress) into your wp-content/themes directory and apply the theme by going to wp-admin -> Design.

Changing the Logo Image

I have provided the logo.psd file which is located inside the images folder of the theme. If you want to change the logo (which is obvious as it says “Clearpress” right now), you can open this file in Adobe Photoshop, modify it and then export as logo.png. Replace the existing logo.png with your new one.

Demo & Download


I hope you like this theme. Don’t forget to leave your feedback in the comments!

    1. After three or four or more grueling years getting through law school, are you a lawyer yet? The answer is “no” in virtually every state in the United States because you need to pass the multistate bar exam (MBE) before you are awarded the honor of putting “esq.” behind your name. That shouldn’t be too hard since you have been studying law literally for years, right? You have read the cases, you know how to present the holdings, you’ve reviewed statutes until the wee hours, you know how to take an essay test as well as anyone. Now you face the MBE.

  13. I used many wordpress themes. but this one is really unique. I must say i really had fun while using this. Thanks for sharing. Keep us posted.

  14. Wow, Awesome post. Actually i am new in site building, so learning some new technique with wordpress. It worked really well. Thanks for sharing.

  15. This layout is so stellar. How did you manage to make a blog that’s as smart as it is sleek? I’ve got to say, the layout alone made me come back to this blog again. But now that I’ve read what you’ve got to say, I’ve got to share it with the world!

  16. cute animals says:

    Thanks for the info. I was searching in the web about this and there are lot of scams about this which are not really helpful. But this one really helped me with the installing and using the features. Thanks again!

    We are all aware of the fact that backlinks make up the larger part of any effective and successful Search Engine Optimization Technique (SEO). That is why the: How to get backlinks question keeps being asked every now and then on the internet, and people never stop getting enough information on this subject matter. Guess no one will ever be satisfied with the number of backlinks they already have for their websites or blogs. In this case, more is always better.

  18. Is it better to have two or three columns for visitors? By the way, very nice theme !

    I have been looking for a good theme for a new blog and really am liking ClearPress but I’m having an issue.

    I am in testing and I leave a comment and then go back out and it says “1 Comment” but the comment doesn’t appear even though I’ve approved it and even if I reply to it. At the bottom of the post it just says “2 Comments on this entry :-” but nothing else.

    Any ideas?

  38. NealDox says:

    I don’t think activating Gravatar will fix the problem. This is a wierd one.

  39. Ed says:

    If you loaded the WP Gravatar and still get error, there is probably a mistake in the script. Try WordPress forum for help.

  40. lizz says:

    I already use WordPress Gravatars and still get the error. I also went in the presentation page made sure it was set.

    <img src=”
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: gravatar() in /homepages/2/d14223593/htdocs/baldpunk/wp-content/themes/Slurpie/comments.php on line 54

  41. Lizz says:

    How do you fix the error:
    <img src=”
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: gravatar() in /homepages/2/d14223593/htdocs/website/wp-content/themes/Slurpie/comments.php on line 54

    What lines needs to be replaced in comment.php?

    1. Jai says:

      You will have to install a plugin called gravatar.php to remove this error.

  42. porn lewd says:

    thanks for the themes..ill get report u in for some bug if any..good job., dude

  49. I really want to love this theme, but I’m having some difficulty.


    Posts show up a little funny. I also can’t figure out how to add things to sidebars. They don’t seem to show up all the time.

    I’m also having trouble with the image gallery and getting javascript to work, but that’s probably unrelated to the theme… haven’t tested in other themes yet.

  50. ovidiu says:

    sorry for above comment, wrong formatting on my side, next try:

    `<img src=”


    somehow it breaks when trying to display the gravatar…

  51. ovizii says:

    also one more problem is that it has issues with wp suepr cache, some psots/pages shwo this code in the source of the page:


    Please help!

  52. ovizii says:

    I’d love to use this theme on a wpmu install, but unfortunately I can’t get the searchbox aligned due to the header bar it seems. could anyone have a quick look and give me some hints? http://adi.zice.ro

  53. Insky says:

    Thank you for this free wordpress theme!

    I have problem to install it. I would like to use it with “wamp server” on my computer (for test). But when I’am applying it, I have the next error :

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDWHILE in C:\wamp\www\testwp\wp-content\themes\clearpress\index.php on line 56

    Can someone help me please ?

  54. t7b.com says:

    Very nice theme. Thanks a lot!

  55. Great site..I enjoyed it a lot..BTW Its the first time I’m posting my comments on a public place.

  56. Kymberly says:

    Never mind! I fixed it! Thx for creating such a cute WP theme!

  57. Kymberly says:

    Hey, I love this theme! It’s so fun and bright, yet very unusual (in a good way). I adore the colors!!!

    But, I’m having trouble. Comments show up looking like this:


    What should I do? I’ve tried re-uploading the php files, but it isn’t working…

  58. Kirsten says:

    This is lovely. Thank you so much! Just a short question – in which file can I change the text ” pull me” ?

  59. munazara says:

    very good, thanks

    Love how there is a #tits div


  61. Ivan says:

    Hi, great theme (at least with safari :-)
    Under IE7 (and 6) something strange is happening. I am using 2.7.1 of wordpress and no plugins (to test). But IE7 and 6 is showing the pull down, already pulled down and is to the left of the screen. the columns are alright but to the bottom because of the pulled down menu (that goes automatically).


  62. Vitebsk says:

    Very nice theme. Thanks a lot!

  63. Raj says:

    wow.. thanks.

    I loved the pull down and page structure.


  64. looks like stupid.. but it’s what really people search! A good work

  65. Robin says:

    Quick question: I am trying to modify it so the single page is smaller and the comments as well, which I’ve done but I do not know how to adjust the CSS so that it’s centered on the screen.

  66. Burrito says:

    Thank you Daniel, now I can read comments!

  67. Daniel says:

    Oh and one other thing, if I have images in my posts that are wider than the columns in the 3 column layout on the front page, it looks broken… This seems like it could affect a lot of people. Is this a simple fix (some CSS overflow tweaking or something to that effect hopefully?)

  68. Daniel says:

    I’m running WP 2.7 and as far as I can tell there’s no function called “gravatar()”. I replaced that line in comment.php with “echo get_avatar(get_comment_author_email(), 24);” and it all works fine now :)

  69. Biktor says:

    Great theme, thank you for the excelent job.

  70. Sonja says:

    Hi Jai

    I just left a message in your ‘chat’ box, but meant to leave it here.

    I love the theme – clean and colourful.

    Is it possible to have Google adwords? I’d like them in the third column?


  71. Jora says:

    I get this error anytime a comment is posted:

    <img src=”
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function gravatar() in /home/content/s/b/l/…/html/blog/wp-content/themes/clearpress/comments.php on line 60

  72. Jora says:

    Hi Jai. Thanks for this wonderful template. I’ve downloaded it and it’s really great. One thing though – IE browser shows this:

    ‘error on page’ at the bottom of the browser.

    How do I fix this?

  73. saleh says:

    i love this theme..
    Jai make great touches
    thanks . . .

  74. Sunira says:

    Hi there. First I want to say what a wonderful and innovative theme! My site looks great because of your work!

    One small incompatibility…this theme does not appear to work with NextGen gallery. :(

    I am not sure why. Just a small roadbump.

    Thanks again!

  75. thai song says:

    It is a great job! but the comment area is too big

  76. jakabanda says:

    I’ll try to make this template…
    I hope this run well

  77. adam says:

    I’m getting a parsing error on line 56 of index.php :

    I’m running wamp – I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

  78. chrys says:

    You leave me speechless – – Can’t think enough to even attempt to spell!! THANKS!

  79. Jai says:

    @matilda:- You can use custom fields (search on how to use them) to display small images on the front page (edit index.php) and post normal sized images for the single.php

  80. matilda says:

    Wow, I love this, I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time, and have spent quite a bit on premium themes that just didn’t cut it, it’s so great that it’s free.

    I do have a question, is it possible to somehow auto size and resize images?
    I use images in every post, and it looks good on the front page when 250px, but when viewing a single post it looks wonky as the page is wide and the image so small.
    Is there a way I could automatically have all images set to 250px on the front page but their original size when viewing a single post?

    I have seen this type of function inbuilt in some gallery themes, but have no idea how to do it myself, any suggestions/ direction will be appreciated.

    Thanks!! :)

  81. 365hope says:

    Jai, as you said, this theme for WP is really unique. It reveals the unique imagination you have. Have a promising year 2009!

  82. simpson says:


    My WP version is 2.7

  83. Jai says:

    @simpson:- Please upgrade your version of WordPress to the latest one.

    @Doke:- What is the problem? Which browser are you using.

  84. Doke says:

    It is a great job! but i can’t see the demo of clearpress.

  85. simpson says:

    There is error of the comment, how to slove it?

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function gravatar() in /home/.floor/dashou/yourembarrassingmoments.com/wp-content/themes/clearpress/comments.php on line 60

  86. Oh my god, that’s an amazing theme, and what a way to kick off the new year! I can’t wait to try it out, and mess around with modifying it!

    keep up the good work!

    1. dissertation says:

      Yeh! I agree with you , it really very nice and attractive

  87. Aziza says:

    Hi there, I am knew on this site and I love it.I am beginner for him/ i don’t know any thing about a cod.hopefully i can learn.

  88. M. Pence says:

    It’s so bright and sunshine-y happy! Nice to see more bright designs out there! Thanks Jai!

  89. Em says:

    The theme looks amazing! I believe a touch of silver on the logo would have taken it to the next step..

  90. Danniel says:

    Nicet theme Bob ;) Congratulations

  91. abdusfauzi says:

    downloading. testing it later. anyway, looks simple and neat, love it. ;)

  92. kesepian says:

    This is a great idea, but the font size is so small… and the comment area is too big.

  93. Jai says:

    @Make Money:- I have made the comments the same size as the entry.

  94. Make Money says:

    @Wesley:- yes i noticed that too… Would love to have same sized comment sectionz

    Great theme :D

  95. 13770 says:

    Error in sidebar.php… for the second sidebar, dynamic_sidebar(3) instead of dynamic_sidebar(2)

    1. Jai says:

      I have fixed it.

  96. 13770 says:

    Magnifique !!! Beautiful…
    But it doesn’t work properly with IE all versions… a script error says that console is undefined
    IE6 : only two columns, the third is at the bottom.
    IE7 & 8 : nothing, we are directed to http://wpthemes.blogohblog.net/, we have to change the options security ???
    It’s really too bad because i was searching this type of theme.

  97. Hussein says:

    Great theme Jai! I love it. I might use it in my new tech blog. Just need some minor modification. Yes, the content area in single post is too wide. :) Maybe it is better if a sidebar will appear in single post.

  98. sfox says:

    Wow! Another wonderful work!

    I think you’d better test the themes on IE6 too! Because most of the people are using IE6 to surf the Internet.

    What’s more, i have no idea why i cannot visit your demo’s site.

  99. Wesley says:

    Love the pulldown, one suggestion, comments don’t seem to be as wide as the content area. Is this as intended?
