Automatticians in the Bay Area were convinced it was summer this past week, when it rose above 90 Fahrenheit (about 32 Celsius) and we headed to the freezers to stick our heads in. Now it’s back to something much more reasonable and the northern hemisphere is happy to proclaim that it’s spring!
To kick off the season, we’re bringing you a fresh new springtime theme for your blog: SpringLoaded by The 449.
It’s got all the standard features you love, plus a few fresh touches that make it perfect for the fairest season, like a striking green background and sprigs of grass near the search.
You can find SpringLoaded in your dashboard under Appearance > Themes (which is arranged in alpha order).

i like the date display on left side
OMG! It’s awesome! Unlike any other theme for free WP so far. I just tested it and I felt like I got an external theme installed! :) Thank you. Will surely consider it for one of my blogs!
Please introduce as many themes as possible and as soon as possible!
So pretty!!! I am going to use it. Nao.
I’ll have to go check it out!
I can smell the cut grass and gasoline.
not for me… but still it looks great
Yeay, a new theme! I’m not ready to change mine yet, but it’s nice to see the themes collection growing, and to have a wider variety to pick from.
Nice job, and happy spring! :)
That summer head-fake got me to finally clean the yard!
Now for some spring cleaning of my blog themes.
Very nice. And it’s green! <3
Clean and green and lovely all around! This theme has got my top vote. :) Thanks for bringing it in!
Immediately switched themes on both my blogs to this. Much obliged!
Any chances of designing a theme based on Coffee?
It’s a good reality!
April has the most delisious weather of the year.
I would love to used this new theme, but I can’t because the main column is too small for the pictures posted on my blog using the “rounded” theme which has a big main column.
For the next new theme, could I suggest you to offer a theme like “rounded” in dimensions ?
Sorry for my approx english, I hope you’ll understand.
ok. nice theme
Nice (though my current theme is so good I probably never will change it).
Very nice modern theme thank you. = )
This is pretty but I like bigger pictures.
This is a fantastic theme! Thanks!
Oh, wow. Thank you so much! I needed a change. ^^
i like it.
I LOVE IT! Green is my favorite “not black” color!!!!!
in this period with all this rain I think that some grass is really ok for a theme ^_^
Thanks. I kinda like this. It’s spunky.
It’s very amazing theme
Nice Theme.But So sad cant use it.Does not support the styling of some widgets.
I like the dark background–it really makes the theme pop. Also, I am enchanted by the use of Georgia or similar serifs.
cool Theme! but not for me, thanks wordpress! you’re really hard workers!! :)
Nice, needs custom header. Other than that… Bravo.
Hmm.. nice theme, Ilike it.
Hmm.. nice theme, Iike it.
I changed my background with DIV TAG in widget but the border of widget’s box not transparent :(
Where’s the juniper pollen?
Beautiful. Although I notice that if I haven’t titled my widgets, the “box” surrounding the widgets doesn’t display correctly. If not for that, I think I would use the theme.
that is really nice !
I love themes…
Very nice, I love it!
wow cool ideas!!!
I gotta change it NOW. And I have changed it.
Thanks for this beautiful theme.
Finally! Thanks for the theme :)
it’s very themes man
Nice one, I have a garden and houseplant blog that I just started, this is perfect for now:) Thank You. Maybe after spring i’ll go back to the theme I downloaded.
very beautiful and fresh, I love the themes that you have , keep up the great work
So cool theme. I like it.
it’s so fresh and green! <3
Cool very spring feel to it.
Would love to see more free themes :)
Can I be a little greedy and ask for white, minimalistic theme with arial/helvetica/verdana font, customer header & support for all widgets? That would be perfection :)
I liked the part where it showed blog archives circa 1982!
Woww… Very nice, calm, comfort theme..
Thank’s for the good work and design..
I like it very very much :)
cool theme’s. thanks
Great: Now I can change mines too!
i like the layout for the date and the search bar
and it’s really fresh! :D
It is very eye-catching / pretty. Unfortunately I really need the 3 column functionality, and there are only 7 3-column themes, which are mostly very boring….
The theme has a lot of pros and is highly recommended. I activated it on my primary blog. :D
Here are some cons that I could find on a quick assessment: :(
1. The name/link of the commentator is in very small font size (but the comment page looks great just the same). Also the comments link is in small font size but okay.
2. If you don’t give a heading to the text box in the widget it appears slightly cut out and abnormal towards the upper end (I guess some people are facing this problem as is clear from comments above)!
3. The image in the text box widget must have some text after it or else it becomes messy!
It’s a great theme just the same and will find many converts just like the Vigilance theme! :D
Thanks. I am using it.
wow cool. please create more theme, as I really love WP’s! :D
green but clean, well done…
Please keep the themes coming, I’ve yet to have a theme I like.
I mean, the themes that’s available now are okay but its like they are missing something
or something is in the wrong place that would make that theme perfect for me.
I like the cooler temps as well. Nice theme!
OK – I am giving it a whirl on my SJQCoachingResearch blog even though we are going into winter down here – looks very natty
Nice theme! Going to test it later! ;)
I like the colors.. “Fan tas tic “
Really nice, I’ve just changed my blog to it!
BUT…. it’s another green theme. WordPress loves its blues or greens. Sorry to criticise but I would love more colour choice. (Or just a tad more colour customisation in the current templates perhaps? :))
But other than that it’s a lovely theme. Thanks
I love wordpress..
This has an e-blogger like look to it. I like this, more please.
it´s neat, but the backg looks like courtains on a stage to me.. rather have it without or with more natural structure..
verry fresh wheen i looked at it :)
Awesome theme! Hope the team add some header-customizable ones that looks not too minimal and lonely :D
This looks really refreshing, but it’s too faddish for my taste. Please keep new themes coming.
dude, what about page navigation??!! and custom header??! cool theme, but it’d be cooler if user could personalize it more…
so clean and fresh!
a very good them.. switched immediately!!! :)
lovely! Thanks wordpress!!
wow, cool theme! have changed mine to this one!!!
Great to look at, though for my own blog i prefer less detail in the background – not quite like having someone else’s photo up, but ykwim.
But it’s very good to emphasise the search box, which isn’t always obvious. As for comments – a lot of people not very familiar with the blogosphere (eg my mum when she has a look at my blog, lol) just don’t realise it’s so easy to comment, depending what theme i’m using.
Thanks for a new theme! I was looking for something to do with Spring! I’d also love something with cherry blossoms! But wide, not as narrow as many of the WP themes are.
Btw, please feel free to make more new themes. I love WP but I think there’s too little variety (and not enough wide window themes) in the designs we can choose.
I really love the fact you guys offer free themes, and work so hard at putting different ones together. But, I feel a but coming on, could there be some more theme-less themes aside from the likes of the sandlots in the near future.
nice theme, but I don’t want to change theme.
yeah, yeah, yeah…… if you say so
Very pretty. Definitely will have to test it out. :)
