Decker WordPress Theme Released

By Daniel Scocco

It is time to add another theme to our growing collection. Decker is a very clean WordPress theme, with two columns and a 300×250 AdSense unit integrated on top of the sidebar.

Here is the complete list of features:

  • Advertising Ready: The theme already comes with a 300×250 AdSense unit integrated. All you will need to do is to copy and paste your AdSense code on the advertisement.php file.
  • Widget Ready: The theme supports widgets, and it compatible with WordPress 2.6.2 as well.
  • Sectioned Footer: On the footer you have 3 separate sections to place your links, blogroll and s on.
  • Search Engine Optimization: The theme comes with title tags optimized, and it already displays only excerpts on archive and category pages, to reduce the duplicate content.

    Nice design. Do you think it would be possible to offer a left sidebar option? I know that I can change the code but there are many others that can’t. Also, it is a way to double the themes that you have to offer.

    Just a thought.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Saurav

    Nice theme, me thinking of designing a wp theme too.

  • Mike Panic

    Really like the footer, it actually makes sense, something I rarely see anymore. Only suggesting for the footer is either an UP button taking you back to the top and / or site navigation as well.


    Best Free theme. I like the footer design.
    Very clean, good looking theme.

  • Sohail

    Nice design………looks broken for me in IE, Did you check it in IE?

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Sohail, yes should be compatible with IE. I will check again though.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Mike, yeah I will see what I can do. Though this one should be easy to be implemented if you want also.

    Hi Daniel,

    Good theme really.
    My suggestion is: I feel most of the space going waste in header.May be appearing like this because of you left some space for outline 🙂

  • TechZoomIn


    How much time it will take for you to complete one theme?

    Just wanted to know 🙂

  • Daniel Scocco

    @TechZomming, you could easily put a 468×60 banner there if you wish.

    I don’t code the themes, I work with designers that work for me. Not sure how long it takes for them, I just know how much it costs for me 🙂 .

  • TechZoomIn

    Ok 🙂

    As always, brilliant theme! I’m currently using a modified version of your DeepBlue theme and for the sake of consistency do not want to change my theme. If I were starting out again though, THIS would definitely be my theme. Great job!

    I like the attention to small details but it feels bit generic overall. I think such theme is perfect candidate for custom header – you have everything you need in place, only add huge personal spark. 🙂

  • Susan

    I really like the layout of this theme and the colors.

  • Hussein

    Damn it. What an awesome theme. I’ll be blogging about this soon for my wordpress theme weekly.

  • srdjan

    I have installed theme on my blog but my pages are not presented. Instead, there are pages like in demo (about author, author CV, contact us…). What is the problem?

  • Medical Transcriptionist

    Have I gone wrong anywhere? Dates of all recent posts in the footer turns out to be July 24th, 2008!

    The footer coding too says: July 24th, 2008

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Medical, I will check that.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @srdjan, you need to add your own links there. We opted for manually inserted links so that people can decide what pages they want to go on the navigation menu.

  • Deineshd

    Cool Template brother.I love to convert it into blogger so that blogger users also can enjoy it.

  • izzat aziz

    love it, but green doesnt fit it.. just my opinion.. 😀

  • vutha

    that is nice theme.

  • himi

    Hey Daniel, this one looks great! It’s very simple compared to some previous themes, but simple sites bring the most money from adsense.

    Good work!

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Himi, yeah, I am having a really high CTR on the demo AdSense unit already 🙂 .

  • MillionMaker

    Hello daniel

    there is a error with the trackbacks.
    the theme is not publishing Trackbacks correctly you should fix that


  • MM

    Hi Daniel, thanks for this theme. I see some errors reported in some of the comments. how do i know whether all have been fixed or not?

  • Daniel Scocco

    We are working on them.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @MM, OK I just uploaded a new version with the bugs fixed.

    It should display fine in all browsers now.

    @MillionMaker, can you send me a screenshot of that problem?

  • Social Media Marketing

    very nice theme …

  • MM

    Thanks Daniel 🙂 and thanks for making the themes on your site free

  • Leo

    Wow! Really great theme! A custom header and it will look a little more personal. Thanks!

  • tweakwindows

    It’s giving error for trackbacks. how to fix it?

  • sam

    love it when they are free. thanxs for making and sharing them

  • Menol

    Hi Daniel,

    First of all, Great work!

    I selected your theme after going through 100s of free themes for my blog.

    Unfortunately it doesn’t look as in your sample site for me.

    Following is a screen shot:

    I use a windows IIS server and checked this with Firefox.

    If you could fix this please try to drop an email so I’ll use your theme again.

    Good work! I hope I’d be able to use your theme.


  • Mattias Geniar

    To remove the trackback error, edit the file comments.php, go to line 62 and change the class where it now says “sandbox_comment_class()” to something else (ie; “some class” like in the comments).

    Seems that’s a left over from some debugging/testing phase, but it causes your blog to stop outputting as soon as it reaches Trackbacks to output.

  • bob

    Great theme! Clean… just very nice.

    Are you still answering questions on this?.. I hope.

    I would like to change the font size (for pages) on this. Can you tell me what I change? Seems like I have tried changing everything but I must be missing something.

    Also, in a response above you mentioned putting a 468×60 banner ad in the header. i have tried changing everything I could see but can’t get it to fit. Any help?

    Thank you very much! …for making the theme available (and for any help you could provide).

  • Craig

    Earlier today I decided to change my theme to Decker. I really do like it but I’m having a problem.

    If you click on any of the side Categories listed on the home page, the correct page returns with the correct posts but without the images?

    I’ve tried everything I know and can’t seem to correct the problem.

    Any suggestions?

    I’ve tried changing themes and now they won’t show in any theme. The home page does load fine in all themes, but the category pages all load the same, no images.


  • Craig


    The images will only show in the previous theme.

  • Computer Tips

    First of all thanks for providing this wonderful theme for free. Now I have been using your theme since 2 weeks. I am facing a problem when someone pings on my blog. Posts that have pings do not load completely and an error is show at the botton.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function sandbox_comment_class() in public_html/wp-content/themes/Decker/comments.php on line 62

    Can any one here fix this or I ask the author of this theme to provide any help
