Grass Roots Theme For WordPress

I am pleased to announce the release of my first free WordPress theme: Grass Roots.

Being that this is my first public-released theme, I tried to make it as easy to install as possible.  No plugins, add-ons or doo-hickeys required.  Although, further customization options are available (if you’re into that kind of thing).  Please see the readme.txt file included for more information.

At this point you probably would like to see this theme in action so you should definitely check out the live demo.

The Specs

This theme has been tested on WordPress v2.5.1 & v2.6.  It has Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS Level 2.1.  It has been cross-browser tested with Firefox 3+, IE 6+, Opera 9+ & Safari 3+.  And those sidebars – totally widgetized.

The License

You are free to use this application but may not redistribute it – feel free to link to this page instead.  Links located in the footer must remain in tact.  You do not have to be a crunchy-granola-backpacking blogger to use this theme.

Get It Already!

The reason I think the problem is related to the theme, is because I have the same issue of the bookmarkify plugin. Any help would be appreciated, this theme is top notch!

  28. Doesn’t seem to work with wordpress 2.7, anyone else confirm this ?

  29. Wonderfull theme. I love the colors, relaxing and pleasant.

    I just dislike that near-all web designers are ‘wasting’ screen real state. It’s really sad to see that most of the websites with a wide screen leave more than 50% of the screen empty… So, maybe I’ll make this great theme you’ve done ‘fluid’, because I really, really like this :)
