Highly stylized WordPress theme: Gods and Monsters. Everything your business theme isn’t.
By Ars Grafik
We’ve uploaded another theme today. This one, called Gods & Monsters, is stylized to the hilt, so business bloggers look elsewhere. Everyone else give it a gander.
Gods & Monsters is an image-rich, two column, grunge theme adorned with Medieval gods and monsters. There are lots of details, such as a stylized search box, interesting presentation of the date, and great illustrations like flying fish and fighting gods and monsters. The background of the content area is an old parchment, giving the whole theme a cool antiquated look. The colors are muted and dark, the text uniformly serif.
The navigation will display all published pages and will automatically accommodate two rows of tabs.
The sidebar is widget ready. At the top of the sidebar, you will find a custom RSS link and custom search field hard-coded into place. These could be removed, but they are designed to mesh with the rest of the theme’s design. Here is a screenshot:
As to browser compatibility, the site’s been tested in IE7, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Chrome. It was not designed with IE6 in mind, so I included a special message to IE6 users kindly requesting that they upgrade their browser to Firefox. If you find a browser issue, please leave a comment.
To install the Gods and Monsters theme, you will need to:
- Unzip the gods-and-monsters.zip folder
- Upload the full folder gods-and-monsters to wp-content/themes
- Go to your WordPress admin panel
- Open the Appearance drop-down and select Themes
- Select the Gods and Monsters theme and click Activate Gods and Monsters.
Hope you like it!
