New Theme: K2

Due to popular request we’ve got a version of K2 up on WordPress.com. We call it lite—same great taste, less filling.

We’ve tricked it out a bit with avatars, a little extra styling, and of course custom headers.

If you like Kubrick, there is a very good chance you’ll dig K2 so give it a try.

  5. davideblog

    I really like this theme!
    The only problem is that when I am in my front page, the label in the header is blank (i.e. there’s it’s no written “home” or whatever). And when I am in another page (e.g. “about”), the “home page” label disappear…

    And again a theme which doens’t show the post author… To sad… Otherwise nice theme…

  16. sheida

    Great Job,
    Thanks

  17. K

    K2 and Unsleepable – my two wp.com THEMES. Hats Off!

  18. Wengistein

    Nice, it’s simple and minimalistic.

  19. blaze

    It was inevitable! :D Good theme that one.

  20. Anne

    Absolutely fabulous. The WP.com community is going to partay down.

    You lot are marvellous.

  21. Okro

    Perfect! I’ve been looking forward to something like this! =D

  22. Chittaranjan

    I applied it on moi other blog and itz pretty good….I’ve always felt that the sub-headings (those watch icons & other text below the post title) were too cluttered in K2 but this is kinda trimmed version I suppose!

    There’s one Oddity though, when there are multiple pages, the ‘active’ page tab shows up clearly but the tabs for the other page show up as Plain white :(

  23. ubertech

    thanks for the groovy new theme…

  24. storymode

    Though I don’t use Kubrick, I like the style. K2 looks just as sleek, if not better.

    Thanks for your hard work, guys! ^^

  25. Someone who loves dogs

    This is great Matt; both Unsleepable and K2 Lite are really good minimalistic themes that make blogs popular for what they should be — content :). I presume the next few themes may have more pizzaz in the form of visual appeal or intelligent use of color. Perhaps, Origami (Lite) may find its way in here soon ;).

  26. TheHype

    Wow, this one’s smooth, I bet this’ll be the most popular now. I’m still debating whether I want to switch, but it’s always good to have options! Thanks for the updates!

  27. phrostypoison

    At long last! K2!

  28. hools

    Looks like a good, no-nonsense option :) Nice work, folks!

    My First WordPress Theme: Unwakeable

    You may have noticed the additional page up at the top. It’s home to my WordPress theme, Unwakeable. Unwakeable is basically K2 with the Unsleepable header.
    It’s currently built off K2 0.9.1. I plan on keeping this theme in sync with all…

  31. jasonintx

    nice but miss the AJAX

  32. Daniel

    cool

    it’s always good a new theme

  33. Daniel

    simple,but pretty.Maybe I use it futurely

  34. avuee

    I am not switching for awhile. It took me quite some time to figure out how to get “unsleepable” no to display double widgets. But, it looks clean. I wouldn’t mind another theme or two.

  35. LearningNerd

    That one looks very nice! Thanks for yet another theme — you guys do, indeed, rock. ;)

  36. Bryan Villarin

    Sweetness! Thanks WordPress.com team!

    (The blog tab isn’t labeled – can you fix that?)

  37. thefly

  38. MeL

  40. Thomas

    Thanks. Great theme!

  41. yongsheng

    i must say this IS a nice, neat, nimble layout. easy to customize. I’ll consider using it for my blog.
    Meanwhile, keep up with your GREAT work!

    Glad I switched to wordpress. :D

  42. Goyal

    Awesome. Two days. Two great themes.

    Rock on guys!! WordPress rules :)

  43. timethief

    Now all it needs is a rotating filmloop header http://www.filmloop.com/ ;)

  44. Daijinryuu

    Ewww, it looks too blah, and the main background and the text body background need to diffenentiate themselves more. And what is with the white space on the left side of the page? Should it not be white with like blue writing or whatever saying “home”?

  45. GS Defender

    I’ve finally found my theme (after switching 4-5 for a while). Thanks!

  46. Ishan

    My wish-come-true.

    Thank you, K2 rocks

  47. print

    Looks like a sweet theme, loving the development of wordpress features, keep reading how wordpress is toppling the blogging scene! great work guys!

  48. Ben

    Very nice – I wish more themes had text that was justified on both sides.

  49. Brian Alexander

    The pencil and other little images are too much for me.
