WordPress主题推介:IKARUS

话说有朋友说到好模板难寻,可能是因为中外的各种意识的不同,很多人老外十分喜欢的模板拿到国人手上并不见得会得到好评。所以这个好模板就是一个度了。不过话说回来,老外的那些premium themes总是很好看,很少有难看的。

IKARUS这款主题是braydond的曾经的一款收费主题,应该是出于宣传目的,这款主题现在提供免费下载。

这个主题有n多选项,照作者说是有上千的选项,可以设置Blog, Magazine, List or Magazine List四种显示方法,截图是magazine的效果,在live demo里是magazine list显示方法。顶部是一个js的幻灯片。功能还有一大片:

* NEW** Bubble thought boxes for comments
* NEW** Auto sizing of featured images on mzine style
* NEW** Auto sizing of sidebar featured images

该主题绑定了一些插件,进入该主题介绍页下载plugin package即可全部拿下,主题下载及预览到这里

不过,虽然这款主题是免费的,但是如果你想去除版权信息的话,需要付三十美刀,所以这也应该是他免费发布改主题的目的所在了。

另外该作者还有几款收费主题:例如今天发布的vybe 1.0,都是很精美的,没事上去看看:)

WordPress主题推介:MiniWP

这是一款国人的主题,Sofish前段时间还推了一个免费主题定制服务,不过已经结束了,这里可以看到他的一些定制作品。有些极品模板可以直接找受定者所要,如果他们愿意的话。

今天看到Sofish发布了这款MiniWP主题。

介绍一下:

  1. 像名字一样迷你,简洁;
  2. 无图片,无用JS,完全CSS+xhtml构建;
  3. 在IE6/IE7/Safari3/Firefox/Opera9.5下样式一致;
  4. 像以往主题一样,区分评论与Trackback/Pingback;
  5. 可以说是非定制的第一个非基于sandbox的主题吧;
  6. 或许应该加多一个:sofish历史上运用最多CSS技巧的主题。
