DarkZen WordPress Theme Released

By Daniel Scocco - 0 minute read

Most of our previous WordPress themes used light or vivid colors, so I thought that a darker design was needed on the portfolio. DarkZen comes with a dark header and a gray background, packed on a clean and minimalist design.

Here is a complete list of the features of the theme:

  • Advertising Ready: The theme comes with a 468×60 banner spot on the header, as well as six 125×125 ad blocks on the sidebar. The blogger should also be able to insert other AdSense units without problems.
  • Widget Ready: The theme supports widgets. Just drop the ones you use and you are ready to go.
  • Social Bookmarking Icons: Both the Homepage and single post pages already come with social bookmarking icons integrated. You can also remove or add new ones at will.
  • Customizable Sidebar: The sidebar can hold full width and split sections, so that you can customize your fields easily.
  • Search Engine Optimizated: As usual the title tags and internal pages are already optimized for search engines.

If you have any suggestion or question about this theme, just drop a comment below and we will address it.

    I’ve just solved the problem. Not bad for a complete novice!

    I basically removed the word ‘feed’ from the rsslink code in the header.php.

    Hope this will help anyone else who might have a problem viewing RSS on your DZ site using IE7.

    Hi Daniel

    I love the your template, and so chose it for my first blog! I’m new to the WP and the blogging world. So, please bear my ignorance.

    For some reason the RSS link isn’t working. Any ideas how I can correct this?
