I am glad to announce a brand new free WordPress theme called “Urbane”.
This is a crisp rounded theme that comes with lots of features like built in drop-down menus, Feedburner settings (RSS and Subscribe by e-mail), Twitter, Tabs for Popular/Recent posts, Featured post section, 3 sections to pull posts from different categories on home page, auto generated thumbnails (for both home and the single entry page), threaded comments, widgetized sidebars and 3 widgetized sections on the bottom. On top of all this, Urbane comes with integrated theme options that let you specify categories to use on the home page, configure your feedburner/twitter settings and much more.
The theme has been tested with Firefox, Internet Explorer 7 and Safari and works without any problems.
Setting up the theme
- Download and extract the theme. Place it in wp-content/themes section of your WordPress installation.
- Setup the different categories/theme options on the home page by going to wp-admin -> Appearance -> Urbane Options
- For the thumbnails, just upload images to your posts (no need to insert them). The scripts will make thumbnails automatically.
- To enable threaded comments, go to wp-admin -> Settings -> Discussion -> Enable Threaded comments
