Bright light is the theme on which my blog is running. I thought of releasing it, so that even others could use it.
You can download it as a zip file from my github page.
Extract the zip file and just drop the bright-light directory in the wp-content/themes/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the theme from themes page.
The following are the some of the features of the theme
- Two columns
- Fluid width
- Custom top navigation
- Built-in support for social icons
- Widgetized sidebar
- Widgetized footer
- Easy integration with couple of Plugins
The theme is released under GPL. Feel free to use or modify it as long as you can keep the link back to this page in the footer. If you cannot place the link (for instance on internal projects) and would still like to use the theme, then contact me and we can see what can be done.
If you have any comments or if you want to report any bugs, please leave a comment below or contact me.
The theme is based on the light theme by Stephen Reinhardt.
08-Jan-2010 – v1.1 – Initial Release
30-Jan-2010 – v2.0 – Added a couple of fixed
I’m having problems with displaying sidebar – it wont show up although the widgets are inserted in primary widget area.
What could be the cause?
Thanks for help.
Can I have a look at the blog where you are facing this issue?
Thanks for the theme , it looks great.
It seems to have a few issues with the Buddypress Bar at the top of the page as well as the built-in Search box being half covered (but still usuable!).
You can see what I mean on my blog.
Hope that’s helpful , thanks again
Thanks for reporting this issue. I guess there is some clash with the CSS class names. I will look into it and will update my theme.
Just a suggestion. 🙂 Maybe you can set a min-width to #header and #wrap, so that everything won’t shrink together when the browser window is too small, like Smashing Magazine’s theme: http://www.smashingmagazine.com
Thanks for the suggestion. Will add them and release an update to my theme.
nice theme thalaiva
