GreenTech WordPress Theme Released
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.

Nicest theme I’ve seen to date. The only problem I’m having as I progress is when I add a 4th or 5th adblock it skewers them downwords like the 5th ad is centered on top of the 6th block. What am I doing wrong?
Daniel – great theme! However I’m having a bit of a problem trying to get images within posts to align properly, for example i wanted an image to align to the right but it keeps going to the left. I looked at the code and saw that it does say align=right. Also align=middle doesn’t work either, no matter what I do they always go to the left. (were you listening to Beyonce’s song when you were coding this theme :-))
Thanks, Daniel! I finally figured out how to put Google ads below the navigation bar, but I couldn’t get it to center below the navigation bar (it was off to the one side) even though I messed around with centering and valigning HTML (can you tell I’m a total dilettante? LOL.) Anyway, I removed it. I’ve had Google ads in the sidebar since the day I put it in, so I’ll just stick with that for now. Thanks for the great design!
@MoneyDummy, you can place a unit below the navigation menu, but since there is a gradient color effect there I am not sure how the look would be.
An easier and equally good option would be to add a 300x unit on top of the sidebar, like Zaheer did. You would just need to put the ad where you have the banner codes previously, on the ads.php file.
@Niklas, I have another version coming up soon, which will make the theme completely xHTML valid, and hopefully will also fix that minor bug in Safari 3. All other browsers should be working fine though.
Still no luck with Safari 3? The navbar bug is there still for the demo site
I can see from your blog that you figured out how to put an add in your post. Maybe I’m missing something, but when you said “the following code,” I didn’t see any code and when you said “goes here,” I couldn’t tell what you were referring to.
I spent a couple of hours trying to hack this out, to use the same code that was in my previous template that had the ads, but there’s obviously something I’m not getting. I put coding in the header, and in the individual posts, but it just didn’t show up. I don’t know much about WordPress, but it seems like all I need to know is where to paste what code. I just can’t QUITE figure it out. LOL.
MoneyDummy, I am also using this theme for my blog http://www.zparacha.com. To include an ad on the right side of your post you can use following CSS style
Your AdSense code goes here.
You can see this in action on my website.
I LOVE this template, and it got great feedback from my readers.
The one thing I’ve noticed, however, is that since installng it, my adsense revenue has literally dropped in half. Is there a way to ad a single horizontal adsense block right below the page navigation bar and an adsense square in the upper right corner of individual posts?
Great theme. I write a clean tech blog hosed on wordpress.com and am trying to figure out how to shift to this theme. Do I need to use wordpress.org to be able to use a theme that’s not in their pre-selected list? I’m a total rookie at customization – any ideas on how I can shift to this theme easily would be much appreciated.
I would like to know how to add social bookmark button to my blog such as de.li.cio.us , technorati etc
@WTJ, the first version had no single.php file. If yours is that, just make a copy of index.php page and rename it single.php. Then you will be able to edit it.
@Missy, all the colors, fonts and design details are included on the style.css file, which you can access on the WordPress control panel under “Presentation”, then “Theme Editor.”
@Showbiz, just ad lines on the ads.php file and drop your Widget bucks code there.
To put an Adsense on the header you would need to format it with some CSS. You could try removing the “Subscribe via RSS” and “Email updates icon and putting the ad there.
Showbiz Intriga? Get It From Boy!
how do i put a single ad (probably from widgetbucks) that will fit the “ads.php” instead of those 6 125×125?
also, can i put a random rotating banner ad in the header as well probably from adsense?how?
How do i change the TITLE and SUBHEADING TEXT COLOR to a different color, say yellow?
2WTJ It’s very easy! You should log in to your wp admin panel –> choose Presentation –> Theme Editor –> in the bottom of the right column click Single Post –> here it is, you can edit php code there

I plan on using this because this is kinda similar to my old blogger blog. I am moving to WP and this is just very similar.
I will just post here if you’ll indulge me the problems i’ll encounter in the future. thank you
just wanna ask how to edit the single post page?
Looks great! Is it free? I’d like to use it too. Thanks for your job!
I realy…realy like it. Could I using the theme
Oh great design release.. thank you.
ilango, go on the Sidebar and delete this piece of code:
<? include(TEMPLATEPATH.”/ads.php”); ?>
Greentech2 is just fantastic and I would like to use it for my blog. But how do I remove or hide the ads tiles as I don’t think I’ll be looking for ads anytime soon.
wow! very clean and simple… you did a great job on this… I’ll try this out on my blog… The color looks very great! thanks! 🙂
zParach, Eric is correct, you need to create a link around it on the header.php file.
First you will need to activate email subscriptions with your feedburner account, and then use that link around the email icon.
You have to change the url from “#” to your feedburner subscription URL.
This can be done in the header file.
Daniel, the ‘Email Update’ icon does not do anything? Is any other file missing?
is it possible to make this theme 3 – column?
that would be helpful for me 😀
Thanks for another great free theme. I have added it to my site, and readers can vote for it as their favorite on wpthemez.
Hmm somehow that file went missing, uploading a new version now.
Thanks for spotting it.
Worked like a charm… thanks!
