Today we bring to you a fresh new theme from Jestro Themes. Meet Vigilance:
Vigilance has a super-special set of features, which you can access under Appearance > Vigilance Options after you’ve activated the theme under Appearance > Themes. These include:
- Customizable colors: You set the background color, border color, link color, and link hover color.
- Alert box: A special feature just for this theme, the optional alert box appears at the top of the page and can contain an announcement or other notice that you want to keep prominent on your blog.
- Hidden pages: Enter the page ID numbers of the pages you don’t want to display, and they’ll be hidden from the menu at the top of your blog.
Vigilance also has a custom image header and special widget options. You can display one wide sidebar or two thin sidebars on your blog. As always, you control the look of your blog by adding and removing widgets under the Appearance > Widgets menu. But now, special to Vigilance: If a sidebar doesn’t contain any widgets, it simply disappears.

Sweet. I’ll add this right about…..
Feb 19th at 3:54 am
Wow! I love experimenting with themes. I’ll soon go check it! Thanks.
BTW, ‘vigilance’ is a great name for a theme.
Feb 19th at 3:55 am
That good. But i like the theme custom header
Feb 19th at 4:04 am
Cool, I have to check this out. TY WordPress Team
Feb 19th at 4:11 am
I tested it!
Except the sidebar, all is great with this theme. Or I am being harsh, even the sidebar is okay.
Nice fonts like the Depo Masthead, Cutline, Pressrow or the Journalist. It is in the same league with these themes and those who want a more journalistic look on blogs will love to adopt this theme.
Very pronounced titles, date and comments. The comments on the post have a wonderful look and feel. The block quotes are very pronounced.
I am sure many WP users will switch to this theme.
Very enticing! I have resisted the temptation though
Feb 19th at 4:21 am
One wide sidebar or two thin sidebars, customizable colours, alert box! Hmm, fully loaded!
Feb 19th at 4:29 am
I like this one!
Feb 19th at 4:33 am
Feb 19th at 4:41 am
Oooh .. gotta try it .
Feb 19th at 4:46 am
What an interesting theme!
Nice to try. Thanks.
Feb 19th at 4:47 am
wow! love the special alert box!
if it had a customizable header so I could use the photo header I love I would be all over this new theme!
Feb 19th at 4:51 am
The alert features sounds really interesting. I’ll have to try it out.
Feb 19th at 4:52 am
YES!! I love it!!!!
Feb 19th at 4:59 am
Feb 19th at 5:35 am
Let me try it…..
I hope,I’m gonna like it………….:)
Feb 19th at 5:37 am
Definitely one of the more improved and classy themes to come out. Thanks WordPress and Jestro Themes.
Feb 19th at 5:51 am
Looks clean and organized. Thanks!
Feb 19th at 5:54 am
hmm… interesting theme… can i still have my own custom header on it?
Looking around for a perfect theme I need. Im wondering how to add pictures and stuff. Still learning about wordpress, its all new to me! I have to admit..its interesting. Thanks for the theme Heather
Feb 19th at 5:54 am
I’m delighted to have a new theme to try out tomorrow. I’m looking forward to trying out the customizable options. It sounds like it may be right for my blog. Thanks for sharing the news.
Feb 19th at 6:09 am
Oh. It would be nice but for me it appears totally different than what it looks like in the preview and on the screenshot above. Bigger fonts, ugly blockquote, black tagbox and the sidebar is under the post (although I use IE7 and Firefox). I wonder why, it would be a nice them if it looked like in the screenshot.
Feb 19th at 6:13 am
I will look at it and see how it works with photography. All of the options sound really good!
Feb 19th at 6:14 am
it’s worth to try
Feb 19th at 6:21 am
awesome ! I love it! Thanks guys
Feb 19th at 6:30 am
Themes with customizable features, as these ones, or others, would be very interesting.
Feb 19th at 6:34 am
interesting. Will give it a try!
Feb 19th at 6:37 am
I will probably try this new theme on this blog of mine! looks good.
Feb 19th at 6:40 am
Feb 19th at 6:48 am
Any way we can have more darker ones with really nice font? And the capabilities to not be so restricted with the crop sizing when it comes to up loading a picture?
Feb 19th at 7:00 am
looking cool n simple !!
Feb 19th at 7:03 am
Awesome, the themes this year are already piling up!
Feb 19th at 7:15 am
Feb 19th at 7:24 am
waow… nice theme,
but i love Cutline by Chris Pearson.
Feb 19th at 7:30 am
love it enough to switch. nice work.
Feb 19th at 7:45 am
worth the wait…Do i dare to say yes!?
Feb 19th at 7:49 am
Looks good. I’m gonna try it out and see how it stacks up…
Personally, I like themes with wide blogpost-space and narrow-er sidebars…and this one fits the bill
Feb 19th at 7:54 am
Looks like someone has worked very hard on this, to provide more flexibility within one theme than you normally get. Worth having a play with.
Feb 19th at 8:02 am
heh… I’ll keep it in mind when I want a really long blog title
Feb 19th at 8:08 am
A beautifully stylish theme and the ability to customize certain elements is a trend I hope WordPress.com expands on.
The only thing that would make Vigilance complete for me is the addition of an Archives page. (I know we can add the Categories and Archives widgets to our sidebar, but my blog’s sidebar is quite full already.)
Feb 19th at 8:09 am
It’s seems so nice….
Feb 19th at 8:17 am
Hey, nice theme, thanks!
Feb 19th at 8:38 am
Great. I like customizable colors and hidden pages. I will use this theme for one of my blogs. Thank you.
Feb 19th at 8:41 am
It features everything I was wanting – even serif typeface!
Again, Bravo WP!
Feb 19th at 8:44 am
Seems Very Simple and neat template , i really like it .
“special to Vigilance: If a sidebar doesn’t contain any widgets, it simply disappears.” This Feature is Great for peoples those Don’t like much rush on them blog … And Special alert box is also another cool touch from You … you guys Rock . i love you guys
Feb 19th at 8:50 am
I’m using it! Very cool!
Feb 19th at 8:51 am
wow! an awesome theme which brings more spice on wordpress.com. thanks Heather and WordPress team for the great updates.
Feb 19th at 9:07 am
I really love themes with flexible with!
Can you … ?
Feb 19th at 9:14 am
Wow! Customizable colors, the alert box and hidden pages are all very good ideas. If only I could get all of this with a custom image header, I would definitely switch!
Feb 19th at 9:28 am
I took a look at this and it has a lot of extra great options. I have actually been waiting for a new clean 3-column (fixed and with header) if there is one coming soon. Is this in your plans? If not, Vigilance will do wonderfully.
Appreciate your site more than you know. It’s simply the best!
Feb 19th at 9:35 am
wow wow wow!
Feb 19th at 9:50 am
Looks quite good, I’ll have to try it out.
Feb 19th at 10:18 am
Ooh, there’s a lot to like about this one! I’ll have to play with it this weekend
Feb 19th at 10:28 am
I love everything about it except the very serify font and godawful mixing of serif and non serif fonts.
Feb 19th at 10:36 am
Thats a new groovy theme, although, a little dark shade would have been good
Feb 19th at 10:38 am
It looks good but the font size on the sidebar is not standard – some small, some big. It is better if it is more uniformed
Feb 19th at 10:38 am
It seems to be one of the best Themes of wordpress. but unfortunately all these themes do not appear properly in Persian. for example one of the culumns of Theme “Dig 3 column” is not shown in persian at all.
Feb 19th at 10:45 am
Feb 19th at 11:03 am
Ahhhhhhhhhh! Another simple, white theme that has the potential for two widget bars, but has no image header. I use an image header on my blog that I’m super obsessed with. I love it. But I’ve always wanted two widget sidebars and I insist on a simple white theme.
I’m still waiting for the perfect theme.
But this looks very nice.
Feb 19th at 11:27 am
The comments have huge font. especially when you use block quote.
Feb 19th at 11:55 am
But doesn’t suit me unfortunately.
Feb 19th at 11:56 am
Awesome theme! Keep up the fantastic work WP~
Feb 19th at 11:57 am
I really like this theme, but I can’t use it because of the italicized blockquotes!
Feb 19th at 11:58 am
i dont like .. sorry , but is the truth !
big hug for all .
Feb 19th at 12:10 pm
This is my first blog. And it is on WordPress. Probably the first blog on wordpress.com to use Vigilance?
Feb 19th at 12:14 pm
I like pretty much everything about this theme, except that the links are bolded. Thanks for putting it up.
Feb 19th at 12:23 pm
So cool….. But do you have any themes that looks like a website design? I hope I can download mp3s and videos from my disk folders to my blog…. Nice Theme! Good Job!!!
Feb 19th at 12:31 pm
Looks simple and classic! great work Done!
Feb 19th at 12:31 pm
I would have been perfect if it also had a custom image header!
Feb 19th at 12:34 pm
Oh Look it does!!! Now it is perfect!!!!
Feb 19th at 12:39 pm
i find the font in the right side bar is a tad too small…other than that, it’s awesome…
anyway to fix that ‘problem’?
Feb 19th at 12:51 pm
I liked the Alert box a lot…. so cool.. smart ideaI wish it was for all of the themes.
why themes always have a strange name…!? anyway great job
Feb 19th at 12:53 pm
That’s pretty cool. Sounds like there may be another theme change in my horizon. Thanks for the update!
Feb 19th at 12:55 pm
Vigilance is clean.simple.nice.. the next best theme after Albeo.. lol
Feb 19th at 1:11 pm
I love all the new themes. You’ve started this year in a great way. I have a habit of changing my theme quite frequently.
Feb 19th at 1:11 pm
this is explosive..!
Feb 19th at 1:43 pm
alert box is great. i’m always looking for this kind of feature.
you made it, thanks a lot…
Feb 19th at 1:44 pm
definitely going to have to test it on mine! Thanks for the new theme!
Feb 19th at 1:54 pm
I absolutely love it!
Feb 19th at 1:58 pm
Nice! I may just have to play with this one. The features sound fantastic!
Feb 19th at 2:03 pm
Looks very clean and nice. I think it’s always better to have a design that does’nt look to complicated or crowded.
Feb 19th at 2:07 pm
What is this Blogspot? Customizable colors?!?
Pleeeeeeeeez give us threaded comments in the themes that are already being used by millions. You promised!!
Feb 19th at 2:20 pm
We need more themes…
Feb 19th at 2:23 pm
Really looks good, especially the alert box.
