GreenTech WordPress Theme Released

By Daniel Scocco

This is the second official Daily Blog Tips free WordPress theme. GreenTech is a 2-column, highly customizable theme. It comes with a cream colored background, and details in brown and green.

The theme was created by Mayank Gupta from Review Saurus. Mayank is launching a blog design company soon, so he wanted to showcase his excellent work.

The theme is very functional, and it comes with the following features:

  • Advertising Ready: The theme comes with six 125×125 banner spots on the sidebar. You will just need to upload the banners to the theme “Images” folder and update the ads.php file.
  • Easy Feedburner Integration: The “Theme Options” section inside the WordPress control panel enables the blogger to insert his Feedburner URL, which will be used all over the theme.
  • Widgets Ready: The theme supports widgets, so just drop the ones you use.
  • About the Author Section: The theme comes with a sidebar section dedicated to the author. You can upload your picture and a small description using the author.php page.
  • Comments Styling: Author comments have a different style.
  • Read More Tag Styling: The “Read More” tag is already styled and integrated into the design. Useful for bloggers that use post excerpts.
  • Search Engine Optimization: The meta and title tags are already optimized for search engines.

If you need any help customizing the theme or using it on your blog just post a comment below and we’ll try to help.

Update: Due to popular demand we have also created a second version of the theme with 2 sidebars below the sponsor spots. It is already available for download.

    Looks great. Any more color schemes in the planning stage? A red or orange version would be great. Thanks for sharing.

  • John Townsend

    Wonderful theme.

    One small problem relates to the header menu. In Firefox the header titles are correctly centered between the green lines.

    However in other browsers the header items are placed against the bottom green line rather than in the centre.

    From memory, I had to add in the *new* WordPress image-align classes to the css file manually. (WP changed how they assigned classes to images a while ago).

    I just uploaded this theme and noticed that all of my right aligned images are suddenly aligning left. How can I fix this? I’ve looked through all the code, and it looks correct, so I can’t figure out what’s wrong.

  • vinod

  • arun

    Great job Mayank!

  • kathy

    I really like the typography on the theme,If got more colors should be better.

  • Susan Bosch

    Looks good it worked for me.

  • aqiz

    Your theme was so simple and that’s great about its!

  • Frank

    div class=”TopMenu”>

    <a href=”” title=”” id=”home”>Home

    </div

  • Frank

    OK Here is the fix for the Home button problem. I spend 2 hours on a clients site and figured it out. All this goes in the header.php file.

    <a href=”” title=”” id=”home”>Home

    Just look for the twords the bottom of the page. If you have any further question please contact me.

    Last note – the theme author obviously has other things going on his life and isn’t responding to Help questions here. That’s just something that happens sometimes – life moves on, and its OK for an author to stop supporting a theme when the users haven’t paid for it.

    Try the wordpress.org help forums for answers any time a theme author doesn’t respond in a timely fashion – it’s all volunteers, so you may not always get an immediate answer (and do a search before you ask a question in case your question has already been answered). But there is so much knowledge and help available there.

    Also, try the Firebug extension for the Firefox web-browser if you’re not using it already. Great way to examine source code and CSS for websites so that you can work out what’s ticking away under the hood.

    Bother – the comments settings here don’t allow changing font-color in comments.

    OK, the line that will make a Home tab appear in your nav-bar is the line directly following the “ul” div – just copy that and add it to your header.php in the TopMenu section and it should work – it worked for me.

  • Viv

    OK, checking it out for Larry’s solution for those who do still want the blog on the front page but also want a “Home” button – add Larry’s line of code (in red below) just after the TopMenu div

    (the following code has been altered in this comment so that you can see the HTML rather than it just displaying the links – copy it to a text editor before copying it directly into your header or it will look weird and won’t work):

    <div class=”TopMenu”>

    <ul>

    <li><a href=”<?php echo get_settings(‘home’); ?>”>Home</a></li>

    <?php wp_list_pages(‘depth=1&sort_column=menu_order&title_li=’ . __(”) . ” ); ?>

    </ul>

    </div>

  • Frank

    THANK YOU for your solution!!

    One comment, I was at a library computer center and witnessed the fact that MANY PEOPLE do look for a home button on a blog! This experience is what led me to post the question.

  • Viv

    The default WordPress setting is that the home page is your blog articles front-page (i.e. displays your latest posts) and that the blog title field has a link to the the home URL.

    If you are going to stick with the frontpage being the home page, then why do you need a “home” button? most blogs don’t have one – people know that if they click on the blog-title it should take them to the home page.

    If you do want a “static” home page and have your blog-page display in another tab, here is what you do:

    Step 1. Create a new page and call it “Home”. Put the content you want for your home page here.

    Step 2. Create another new page and call it “Blog” or “News” or “Updates” whatever, and leave it blank.

    Step 2: Go to [Settings >> Reading] and change the “Front Page Displays” section from the default checkbox of “Your Latest Posts” to the alternate checkbox for “A Static Page” and choose to make the page you’ve called “Home” the new front page, ***and*** also choose your blog page from the new page you’ve called Blog or News.

    Now go check out your website.

    If the tabs are not in the order you want, use the page ranking settings to shift them around. That should sort the problem.

  • Frank

    Yeah, regarding the “HOME” link:

    I don’t get it either Larry!

    How do I get “Home” to appear on the Navigation Bar?

    Thx,
    Frank

  • JerJer

    Larry,

    PLEASE:

    Exactly where and how do I put your “Home” on the header.php page:

    Great theme but is there a way to have “Home” in the navigation bar? Thanks!
    # Larry on February 6th, 2009 10:14 am

    Found the solution. I just put this in header.php.

    Home

  • Larry
