Charred Theme

Click to enlarge

This theme is hot off the press and a really cool black 2-column beauty. Charred is the latest edition to Jason’s WP Elements theme collection and I really like it.

The Charred WordPress theme features post thumbnails which means you’ll have to use WordPress custom Fields when writing a post. If you’ve never used a custom field before it’s pretty easy to learn.

So here’s how it works. When writing a new post you’ll first have to create a 140 x 140 thumbnail image that you want to use for your post. After it’s ready upload it, and then create a new custom field called “thumbnail”.

Here’s a screen shot the theme designer provided:

charred thumbnail custom field example

You’ll only need to enter the word “thumbnail” into the “Key” field the first time. For each new post after that, it will automatically appear in the drop down box so just select it. The upload your new image, get the image url, and then paste it into the “Value” field. Don’t forget to click the “Update” action button each time.

If you want to check out the original post from the author, you can find it here. He includes a couple other custom features like how to change the header logo, etc.

Overall this is a great new modern WordPress theme and if you’re looking for a new skin for your site with the ability to add images to each post, this is the one for you.

Keite on Apr 22, 2008, 5:49 am  

why should wordpress have all the nice and beautiful templates?
I hope this theme be converted for blogger

Hanush on Apr 22, 2008, 5:53 am  

is there any easy to use blogger template editor or web to blogger template converter around

David on Apr 22, 2008, 1:52 pm  

@Hanush, i wish there was such a thing. All Blogger templates need to be manually converted which is a pain.

David on Apr 23, 2008, 10:23 am  

@Keite, WordPress is the most popular blogging platform so designers like to create templates for it instead of Blogger. They can also sell them so it’s in their best interest to only do them for WP.

I’ve been using this template for a while, I customized it. One thing that blows my mind is that I can not seem to get rid of the tag cloud that takes up half of the header??

Edit the css for the following and you’ve removed the tag cloud.

.tagCloud {display:none;}
