WordPress Theme Releases for 06/06


Good morning everyone and welcome to the latest edition of WordPress Theme Releases. I hope all of you are enjoying the weekend. I know I am. So, grab a cup of coffee and have a look at the latest offerings from the WordPress community.


Folio is a dark theme aimed at those wanting to create a showcase-type of site such as one that features wallpapers, backgrounds etc. It automatically creates custom fields for preview, image, download and more information links. Supports the WP-PostRatings plugin. This is a child theme of Aurelia which of course means Aurelia must be present in your theme folder for Folio to work. Aurelia can be found in the WordPress Theme Repository.

Diabolique Spring

Diabolique Spring is the second theme of Diabolique Design we have featured. This is a sharp-looking dark theme which comes packed with 4 different background images as well as 3 types of backgrounds for your headlines. Some of this theme’s features include a large footer, cool looking social bookmarking icons and drop-shadow effect for both the sidebar and post area boxes.

Vibefolio teaser

Vibefolio teaser is a clean-looking theme which sports a horizontal navigation menu for pages, a widgetized right sidebar and a widgetized 5-column footer. From the theme’s option page you can do all sorts of things such as upload a custom logo and favicon, include links to Feedburner, Flickr, Twitter and Facebook, insert your Google Analytics code and even disable excerpts. Comes with the TimThumb script.

Political Campaign WordPress Theme

This is a crisp and clean-looking theme perfect for, you guessed it, sites dedicated to political campaigning. For that matter it can be used on any type of political site. It sports a horizontal navigation menu for displaying pages and a widgetized 2 column footer.


DynamicWP has been on a tear releasing new themes regularly since arriving on the scene. Their latest release FunDay is a bit of a departure from their previous work as it has a lighthearted feel to it. It has 2 horizontal navigation menus, one for displaying pages and the other for categories, a widgetized right sidebar and built-in Flickr and Twitter streams. From the theme’s options page you can upload a new logo and Gravatar, exclude pages and categories from the nav menus and include links to Twitter, your RSS feed and RSS email among other things.

Wedding Bells

Wedding Bells is a crisp, clean and neat looking theme released by Finnish designer Lauri Liimatta. It sports a horizontal navigation menu for pages and a widgetized right sidebar as well as a large header image which can be changed from the backend.

We hope you have enjoyed this latest round of theme releases. As usual, if you have any comments, questions or suggestions feel free to drop them in the comments section below. We value your feedback.

    Oh I like the Wedding Bells theme – it’s simple, nice and clean. But the rest, well – I wouldn’t say they’re very professional. Not the best Theme Releases episode today :).

  2. anon says:

    vibefolio is a premium theme — not a free one. I thought WLTC only featured free themes?

  3. Gadget Guy (3 comments.) says:

    The Fun Day woedpress theme looks particularly great. Nice round-up!

  4. Australia Vacations (1 comments.) says:

    Looks like some really nice new themes being released. Thank you for keeping us up to date on these. I’ll be getting a copy of the Wedding Bells theme for a new blog I’m putting together.

  5. Hover Coupon (1 comments.) says:

    Extremely nice themes! GREAT JOB!

    Will they be tweaked, if necessary, to support WP3 Final?

    • Len Kutchma says:

      That’s a very good question. If you’re interested, here is a short tutorial on how to make your theme compatible with WordPress 3.0.

      As a side note, these themes will still work (they won’t break). They just won’t take advantage of some of the new functionality introduced by WordPress 3.0.

    Wow..all themes are beautiful. I love the last one, Wedding Bells, the most because it is a clean and neat looking theme.

    Thanks for sharing this valuable post.

    I like that cup of coffee and I kinda like Diabolique Spring. I like the way you can get to choose from 4 different background images and 3 types of backgrounds for headlines.

      “I like the way you can get to choose from 4 different background images and 3 types of backgrounds for headlines.”

      That caught my eye as well. That, and the drop shadow effect.

      With respect to the coffee, somedays I feel like hooking an IV into a 45 gallon drum of the stuff. ;)

    Folio is nice. I think it enhances and highlights the post and it will have a playful look. Very Nice!

  9. Summer (1 comments.) says:

    I like the funday theme it looks bright and cheerful.

  10. Grant Hunt (1 comments.) says:

    The Folio and the VibeFolio are the great for my next blog… But I would go for the Folio more… :)

  11. Paras (1 comments.) says:

    Funday looks really gr8 with a nice light blue backgroud and nicely finished theme.Gonna download now.

  12. Peter @ Loans (2 comments.) says:

    I really like the Diabolique Spring. Wedding Bells looks good too although the theme is good only for particular web sites.

    • Len Kutchma says:

      Wedding Bells is aimed at the wedding niche but realistically, it can be used on any type of site. Just swap out the header graphic and maybe tweak the font/link colours a bit.

      I like its crisp and clean look.

    • Lauri Liimatta (3 comments.) says:

      Len pretty much said it all but if you need any help customizing Wedding Bells just send me an email.

  13. The cool Guy (2 comments.) says:

    Diabolique Spring is looking to be a good theme. Want to give it a try in my blog.

  14. Alex (2 comments.) says:

    Oops! site is empty. and the demo does not work. is it a joke?

    • Len Kutchma says:

      I just tried it and it works for me. Perhaps they were experiencing some technical difficulties when you visited.

  15. nancy (1 comments.) says:

    Do these themes still work are they compatible with the latest version of WP they are really cool and I wish to use them on my blog

  16. Sandu Vlad (1 comments.) says:

    Very good themes. Folio is one of my favorites. Also Funday looks good, a nice and clear blue.

  17. Jignesh (1 comments.) says:

    Extremely great themes, especially the Vibefolio teaser and the FunDay, They look very professional and are attractive and decent.

  18. David@Kitchen Pantry Furniture (1 comments.) says:

    Great new themes! I like diabolique spring in particular. Very neat and simple.

  19. Mel (1 comments.) says:

    Fun Day is a happy theme! Would be great for inspirational posts.

  20. Smart Blogger (1 comments.) says:

    Two themes are beautiful – WeddingBells and FunDay are the best, imho. Thank’s for sharing.

    • Jef (1 comments.) says:

      I agree and it seems like everyone loves those as well, with folio as a popular one too.

  21. buyability (1 comments.) says:

    I like Folio for some reason I think its the balck with the multi coloured strip at the top. It would be good for showcasing photos

  22. James Fowlkes (1 comments.) says:

    Diabolique Spring reminds me of an billboard ad I saw in Philly that stood out to me. Love it!

  23. Christine (2 comments.) says:

    I like the Vibefolio teaser. Simple but clean. The others arent quite professional looking enough for my blog, but they would be very cute for another style or topic site. I love the ideas!

  24. John (1 comments.) says:

    Diabolique Spring WordPress Theme – is perfecto! Look at this beautiful design, great compilation of styles. Great!

  25. Autogenes Training (3 comments.) says:

    Funday looks fresh

  26. Sid (3 comments.) says:

    These themes are just a no no .. who would use them when there are better alternatives

  27. Autogenes Training (3 comments.) says:

    there are _a lot of_ alternatives, thats the great thing about wp =)

  28. matrixm free ringtones (1 comments.) says:

    my favorite theme is thesis. it is worth the cost. bought a dev license too and it really makes wp manageable.

  29. Mark Seer (1 comments.) says:

    All the themes are looking very nice but I like Vibefolio teaser because it looks very decent,clean and very simple also.I think it will match with most of Professional blogs.Thanks for sharing cute that theme with us.
