New WordPress Theme WP-Ellie: Sneak Peek

Posted on Jan 28 2010 by in News 

This is the real Ellie.

Coming soon to a WordPress Theme Store near you … it’s a brand new WordPress theme we’re calling WP-Ellie, named after my lovable, but slightly overweight beagle (her name is Ellie). We’re still putting the finishing touches on her, but WP-Ellie should be out before Valentine’s Day. Perfect timing to buy your sweetheart a new WordPress theme.

Like many of our previous WordPress themes, WP-Ellie will have multiple home page layouts (see screenshots below). That includes a basic blog layout as well as several different magazine style layouts, one of which you can see on the WP-Ellie demo site. It also includes social networking site integration, including the latest tweet from your Twitter profile.

On the demo site, you’ll notice a dark gray wood plank background. This is one of several body background images that will be available, or you’ll be able to select a simple solid background color (see screencast). And of course, that will all be very simple to change via the theme settings page. We’re all about keeping things as simple as possible here at Solostream.

As I said, we’re still in the “finishing touches” stage. If you have any questions or even feature requests, feel free to drop them in the comments box below, and we’ll see what we can do about getting them in there before launch. No promises though :-)
