WordPress Theme Releases for 05/17


Hello everyone. You may or may not know me. My name is Len and I normally toil away in the forums here at WLTC testing all of the theme submissions before they make it here to the main site. Our regular theme author Perurry is away for a while so I will be pulling double duty in his absence. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions please feel free to drop them in the comments section below.

With that said, let’s take a look at some of the latest and greatest theme releases from the WordPress community.

Oceanic Flight

Oceanic Flight comes to us from JB WEBDEV. It sports two widgetized sidebars, horizontal navigation above the header image and a large search box in the header area. The theme comes in a wide-screen format with its main colours being white, gray and a soothing off-brown. It is easily customizable.


NaturalPaper is the latest offering from the gang at DynamicWP. The theme has a sort of paper and wood feel to it. It comes with a widgetized sidebar including a tabber section to display your most popular posts, latest posts and comments. It has a horizontal menu above the header area to display pages and another below the header area for categories, including a drop down menu for sub-categories. From the theme’s options page you can change the default Gravatar image, exclude pages/categories from the nav menus, include your Twitter & RSS links and turn off/on the TimThumb script.


Technicolor is an elegant looking dark theme from WordPress Theme Designer. Although it is aimed at video bloggers, this theme can easily be used for regular blogs. It comes with a widgetized sidebar and footer and features a video showcase displayed on the home page which can be controlled from the theme’s options page.


BrownishOrange is, you guessed it, a brown and orange coloured theme. It is the latest release from the stable of BloggingInside who has been turning out quite a few themes if you have been paying attention to our forums. It’s appearance is quite soothing and comes with three widgetized areas: a content block above the main content area, the sidebar and another content block directly below the main content area.

    The Technicolor theme looks so elegant!!! However, I didn’t see the demo on the theme homepage.

    • Len Kutchma says:

      Hi V.C. When on the theme’s release page click the image. The demo will appear in a popup ala lightbox effect.

    Hey Len,

    Thanks for putting this selection together. I especially like the BownishOrange theme. It’s simple yet sharp, I will have to try it out on our Tech Tips blog.

    Marvelous, Marvelous job Len! You’ve done well!

    I’m an avid fan of the Inove theme but I definitely love your Oceanic Flight theme.

    I like the three columns structure of it so hopefully I will be using it in the future.

    • Len Kutchma says:

      Thanks Tony. Perhaps I misunderstand your statement but Oceanic Flight is not my theme. I merely wrote the release post. :)

    Oceanic Flight is a great looking theme — Almost magical in a way. I like the two widgetized sidebars.

    Brownish Orange is nice, but i don’t like this big header :-(

    • Len Kutchma says:

      It shouldn’t be terribly difficult to alter it so that it’s more to your liking.

    Thanks for the info Len. I like the Brownish Orange theme. BTW, do you have info about WP magazine themes?

  18. Andrea (1 comments.) says:

    Is it just me or is supposed to be that difficult to change the blog title font of a WordPress theme. I tried to change the blog title font on one of my sites, but it never works. Your themes are beautiful by the way!!

    • Len Kutchma says:

      Kind of off topic Andrea. Why not ask your question in our forums and someone will gladly take a look at the problem.

    The NaturalPaper theme looks cool but the background should be soft.
