WordPress Theme Info

LightBreaker Theme

Click to enlarge

Here’s another great make money online WordPress theme. It’s actually my new favorite non-magazine theme which I use on several of my blogs. I honestly have increased my daily adsense earnings just by installing and configuring this theme. It’s very well written and all the adsense blocks are already setup. You just need to go into one includes file and change the adsense publishers id to yours.

The sidebar has a great spot for those popular 125 x 125 ads so you can sell ad space or put in your own affiliate ads. The default comes with six of my favorite affiliate program ads so feel free to change the affiliate ids to yours (or signup if you don’t have accounts for them yet).

There’s also a nice 468 x 60 header banner spot where you can place another adsense block or just a regular ad. I recommend using a regular ad since adsense can only appear three times per page.


I did change a couple items in this template as I felt it was better suited for everyone. The sidebar uses the cool idTabs feature (javascript that changes the tab once you click on it) for three tabs. I removed the “Most Commented” tab and replaced it with the the “Popular Posts” tab instead which uses the Popularity Contest plugin. There were also some spelling errors I corrected which were minor. I also added some onblur javascript so when you click on  the “subscribe via email” text it disappears instead of you having to erase the text in the box.

Other Areas

When you first install this theme you might experience a problem with the sidebar tabs (at least I did). The idTabs uses jquery and might conflict with one of your other plugins. For me, it was having trouble with the WP Lightbox plugin so I had to disable it before the idTabs would work properly. You’ll just need to disable any plugins that use jquery until you find the one it conflicts with.

The footer was also updated as well but feel free to move things around however you like. If you’re using widgets then you will appreciate the fact that the footer of this theme (4 columns) is actually widgetized, just drag and drop those widgets into place.

The author also states that it’s important to read the included “readme.txt” file because there’s lots of custom pieces to this theme.

Overall, this is a wonderfully built and designed WordPress theme by Moses. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a free make money online theme that’s ready to go.

that is veri beautiful theme. I have problem …I want to uninstall gravatar. How I can do?

Kuba on Sep 19, 2008, 9:58 am  

first of all thanks a lot for this very nice theme! I love it. I have just one question, if I create a subcategory (page that has a parent) it’s not showing up. But if I switch to a different theme it works. Is there any way how I can make it work?

Thanks a lot!

Johan on Sep 21, 2008, 6:41 am  

@ Arya Dewa thanks for comment 22. This helped me to create the subscribe via email code. Now I need to resolve the RSS image at the top.

Johan on Sep 22, 2008, 10:23 am  

Hi I think the download link gives the unchanged theme. For example it doesn’t show the most popular posts. I thought I had the original theme and download your changed theme a few times to check.

Johan on Sep 23, 2008, 7:11 am  

Hi Me again. I like it when I don’t get a quick answer because then I tend to find a better solution. I changed most of the stuff I wanted and then used http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=9564&replies=6#post-57852

paul on Sep 30, 2008, 3:11 am

Thankyou so much. I got the popularity contest plugin working through that wpguy site. Saved me a lot of time. Now I have to worry about the Top Commentators plugin and the other 99 problems I’m suffering from 😐

Hi for all Lighbreaker Lover, Now I wanna do a little share about 2 most used plugin (By Default)on this theme:

David on Nov 13, 2008, 1:58 pm  

I am having trouble with something, and not knowing where to look, I don’t want to go through all the code to try and figure it out, so I thought you might be able to help me. From my fourth post and on down, everything is lower case and italicized – even the sidebar – any idea what this is from? Thank for your help – by the way – I donated! Just giving encouragement to others.

How do I change the top 480×60 banner add?

Good theme for adsense in wordpress.

Jason on Apr 14, 2009, 12:46 pm  


Sorry for being a new wordpress user and asking this dumb question but the one adsense file you are reffering to is the adsense-config.php? All we have to do is copy over the single line that is in there and place our adsense code? Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

I’m really happy with the theme. It’s really great for me. What I can’t figure out is why I see a grey background in every post I create. I don’t remember if was like this when I first got it.

Please try to help me.

Really appreciated. You can view my blog posts here:

thnak’s for this template

Paulo on Jul 3, 2009, 2:41 pm  


Great theme and very easy to configure.


Cindy on Jul 12, 2009, 1:55 am  

thanks for the great template! I just wanted to know what scripts are there to cause the pop-ups? It’s quite annoying and I would like to turn it off because I get lots of complaints. I tried other “normal” sites (not with the heavy adsense integrated ones) templates and it went fine without the pop-ups.

somebody please reply me…

OutOfFlock on Jul 12, 2009, 9:39 pm  

I’m writing my blog in Thai language and I can’t use your template.

This is the error
“We were unable to save your template
Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Content is not allowed in prolog.”

What can be the problem? Is it related with using FireFox?

Hi! Need help on “Subscribe via email subscriptions”

I had followed above Arya’s scrip and made some modification as below:

Subscribe via email subscriptions

Note: I Put in the actual ‘YOUR_ID’ and ‘BLOG/SITE TITLE’ inside my site (www.MettaBlog.co.cc)

However, when I enter a valid email address for testing purpose, the following error message appeared:

“The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled”

Can advise?

Tks and Rgds.

This is maverick12210 From CricketFever.org, i power my blog using WordPress 2.9.1 & the lightbreaker theme, but since a couple of days i am seeing this problem on my website theme – On the bottom are 3 plugins which are running Top Commentators, Most Popular Post & Recently Updated Post but since a few days i see the footer of my page has turned white instead of the default – grey/black as per the theme & as a result the text at the bottom is getting hidden & all i can see is bullets and a white background.
