WordPress Theme Info

The Morning After Theme

Click to enlarge

Without a doubt, this is by far the best free WordPress theme I’ve yet to come across. Created by Arun Kale, the theme was developed based on a user survey about the features needed in a magazine like WordPress theme. It’s very powerful and setup like a newspaper or magazine.

This theme requires some work or rather creativity from your part too, to utilize it’s full potential. You need to create your own header image, latest post images etc. Don’t be surprised at how vanilla it looks once you install it. Take some time and read through the author’s release notes to understand how to best setup everything.

Basic Usage

Once the theme is activated, the first thing you need to do is to create two categories called ‘Asides‘ and ‘Featured’. After that’s done, your home page will be displayed correctly.

Also, for the best results, please disable the visual rich text editor from the Users > Your Profile page in your WordPress administration panel.

The theme also requires some plugins (not mandatory) to enable the extended functionalities.

Plugins Recommended

  • Customizable Comment Listings
  • WP-Email
  • WP-Print

These plugins are all included in the download file but might need to be updated to the latest version. Be sure to check after you install in your plugins area.

Important Note: If you’re running WordPress 2.3+, you’ll want to make a fix to a part of the code. You can find the details here.
