April Showers Bring A Fresh New Theme

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.

SpringLoaded theme

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).

Spring on!

    Great. So sweet, so clean, so modern… but there is one sidebar only, isn’t it? Could you add a bottom-bar or another sidebar?

    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!

    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.
    Thank you

    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

    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

    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.
