iNove by mg12 is one of the top themes used for self-hosted WordPress blogs, and a commonly requested addition to our offerings here on WordPress.com. We’re always doing what we can to bring you the cool new stuff you want, so now you’ve got it, too! iNove for WordPress.com:
Some handy features of this theme:
- Display pages or categories in the menu below your header.
- Display your page hierarchy in your menu on hover.
- Options to show a notice, banner, and special showcase widget to registered users, visitors, or commentators. You control your message.
- The ability to hide and show authors, categories, and tags on posts.
- Remove your sidebar with a single click.
You’ll find all of these settings under Appearance > Current Theme Options in your dashboard after you’ve activated iNove.
To do that, go to Appearance > Themes in your dashboard, find iNove (they’re in alpha order), and click Preview to see how it will look on your blog. If you dig it, click Activate and it’s yours.
This one not quite for you? Keep an eye on the news blog for more themes, coming soon

compact! I like! But after Albeo theme photos sets lil’ bit sloppy in iNove..
Aug 13th at 12:47 pm
Thanks I bet everyone will use it on blogs about technology and gadgets lol
Aug 13th at 12:51 pm
cool theme, i was waiting for something like this! i’m just a bit puzzled about the notice, banner, and special showcase widgets, i’m not sure what’s their differences. but besides that i really love it, the option to decide if categories and tags are shown or not is top, and the clean minimalistic style looks great.
Aug 13th at 12:57 pm
Sounds really interesting, I’m off to check it out. Thanks for continuing to supply new themes.
Aug 13th at 12:58 pm
Looks pretty decent, for a clean and subtle blog. But I would rather like black touches over it. Not so sure..
Aug 13th at 1:00 pm
Very attractive theme. Unfortunately, as with some others, the developer felt the need to include graphic quote marks for blockquoted material. That’s a bit too unprofessional for my taste. Also, my preference is for a font with serifs, so although this new theme is really very good, it’s not for me. But please continue to provide more choices!
Aug 13th at 1:05 pm
I’ve found that using the header banner for long bits of text tends to mess up the formatting of the title, I worked around by putting a DIV in it with the style “height:0px;width:400px;” – quite nice for putting a quote in your header.
Aug 13th at 1:36 pm
It looks great! Maybe I’ll try this one…
Aug 13th at 1:38 pm
Nice theme…very good for technical blogs. Not so much for mine. I just moved from Pressrow to Vigilance
Aug 13th at 1:59 pm
I love it!
Thank you so much WP!
I love you!
Aug 13th at 2:17 pm
great! will try it right away!
Aug 13th at 2:25 pm
nothing to post eh?
yeah iNove is a nice theme i have used it at one of my wordpress installs but now i am using hybrid there, one of the main reasons that i think made iNove so much popular is its black and white layout, there aren’t many themes with glossy black header and white background…
Aug 13th at 2:26 pm
wow wow wow…. don’t stop… more more more!!!
Aug 13th at 2:29 pm
need a soft touch & smart image to make this theme. perfect!
Aug 13th at 2:38 pm
Does this come with the “random posts” widget?
I saw it when I newly activated the theme. Then when I added the widgets I like, the “random posts” disappeared.
Aug 13th at 3:22 pm
Wow, I really wanted a theme that would let me list categories in the top menu, and this looks like it fits the bill. Now I can really utilize my blog to its fullest potential! If only this theme had a customizable header… (Looks like lots of us want this!)
BTW: If you could add the categories in top menu feature to all the themes it would be GREAT!
Aug 13th at 3:30 pm
Wait, it either allows categories or pages in the top menu, but not both! Oh well, back to Freshy theme for me … at least I get a customizable header still ;-).
Aug 13th at 3:31 pm
this looks very cool i am gonna try this
thanks a lot!
Aug 13th at 3:37 pm
How to hide ‘Feed RSS’ button?
Aug 13th at 3:44 pm
Is there a way to disable east, west and south sidebars? I already had widgets in place that were transferred to North side bar and don’t want to change the layout.
Please, if it is not an option, can you make it an option?
So far I am enjoying the layout overall.
Aug 13th at 4:01 pm
Great news. But can we have WP to take out some of the existing themes which are not used and have them replaced by something fresh and new.
Aug 13th at 4:03 pm
Aug 13th at 4:05 pm
Thanks to WordPress
Its very nice ….I like it very much. And as a user i hope we are getting more good features from wordpress.
Aug 13th at 4:20 pm
Keep them coming!
Aug 13th at 4:43 pm
I think It’s one of the best theme here! great, loved it!! it’s practical and just perfect!
thanks a lot! keep’me coming!
Aug 13th at 4:50 pm
A theme with interesting features.
Aug 13th at 5:03 pm
That’s cool, good job!
Aug 13th at 5:08 pm
Very neat, perhaps a new theme?
Aug 13th at 5:08 pm
I used theme by mg12 before it present here, I love it.
Aug 13th at 5:22 pm
hey i use it now…
but how to remove blogroll, rss, categories, and meta site
is it permanent from the themes…??
Aug 13th at 5:29 pm
Can we change the header image in this theme?
Aug 13th at 5:36 pm
Great Theme, but i can’t delete the “Archive” and “Meta”-Widget at the bottom of all my widgets although it’s not active in one of the 4 sidebars. Any reason or explanation? Any help?
So I switched back to Blix-Theme. If there’s a bug, this will be fixed hopefully…
Aug 13th at 5:57 pm
I would switch to this for sure if there is/was a way to make the feed button at the top of the sidebar redirect to a feedburner feed.
Thanks for all your work on the themes!
Aug 13th at 6:12 pm
i love it! it’s so great and awsome! Nice theme nice update!
Aug 13th at 6:38 pm
Looks nice… I like it.
Aug 13th at 6:49 pm
New themes! Great! Can we have more colorful options in the future? This one is really nice though, definitely the best out of the all the black/white/gray themes.
Thanks for everything, WordPress.
Aug 13th at 6:55 pm
wow that looks kewl! will there be a video for it?
Aug 13th at 7:40 pm
Yawn! This one is way too common on the self-hosted blogs…almost a done-to-death theme.
Anyways, thanks for it and keep’em coming.
Aug 13th at 8:16 pm
oh, well, always adding serious themes. I have changed the format a bit to recharge themes on wordpress.com
Heather greetings, good job
we want more templates, we want more templates
Aug 13th at 8:27 pm
Nice – I’m one of those people using the theme on my self-host wordpress site, so nice to see it on wordpress.com!
Aug 13th at 8:37 pm
Very nice and thank you for your continued efforts.
Aug 13th at 8:41 pm
one giant column at last! yay!
Aug 13th at 9:03 pm
I am really loving this theme!
I don’t really want to bother the forum about this since it’s a trivial matter. However, I didn’t know what I did that causes my menu’s dropdown to drop slightly do the right. If anyone can be so kind as to take a look at my blog and point out what I’m missing here, I’d be really grateful.
Thank you in advance!
Aug 13th at 9:06 pm
Wow! What a clean and fun theme!
Aug 13th at 9:12 pm
Very Nice! I love getting new themes! More, please?
Aug 13th at 10:17 pm
I would like a fresh look like this theme but I have put a lot of time organizing my widgets, links, etc… If I change over, will I lose all the work I’ve done on my current theme?
Aug 13th at 10:43 pm
It looks nice.You should make more of these.There aren’t enough and almost all the blogs look like between them.Thank You
Aug 13th at 10:57 pm
One of my favorte ones :D, BIG THX for that!
Using it for my Blog now and really loved all the configuration options.
But still waiting for a new, beautiful and configurable dark 3-column theme with a custom header.
Aug 13th at 11:05 pm
Great! I love this one so far. It would have been nice to have a `Show time/date stamp on posts` option.
Aug 13th at 11:30 pm
This is very compact. Great features!
Aug 13th at 11:40 pm
Seems pretty but Not really my cup of … But its always good to see more themes
Aug 13th at 11:45 pm
Class! I would use this on my personal blog but there’s no sidebars. I dunno if I need them or not tho. Still making that decision.
Aug 13th at 11:49 pm
I like too.
Aug 14th at 12:24 am
I also would like a customizable header. I like having a logo instead of text (even though I have to “fix-up” my logo a bit). Otherwise, it sounds like a good theme.
Aug 14th at 1:24 am
I like this! Am using it now. Keep new ones coming in~
Aug 14th at 2:03 am
can us download???
Aug 14th at 2:12 am
Awesome,, wp is best of the best..
Aug 14th at 2:39 am
glad to see more themes. thank you WP! (:
Aug 14th at 3:15 am
Really cool! How I wish the header could be customized as well…
Aug 14th at 3:44 am
Is there anyway to remove the default Blogroll and Categories widgets from the sidebar? The amount of info in the blogroll lengthens the overall page way too much.
Aug 14th at 3:48 am
wordpress desperately needs more themes. Most of the ones available are stark and boring. Eblogger has some great themes I wish wordpress would adopt.
Aug 14th at 3:50 am
Now if only we had a cherry tree themed layout…
Aug 14th at 4:44 am
more more more …love this one …….
Aug 14th at 5:08 am
I like it but there is nothing defining the features. What is a banner and what does it mean when you saw html enabled? Need directions, please.
Aug 14th at 5:47 am
Aug 14th at 6:00 am
Very chic theme. ^__^
Aug 14th at 6:12 am
It’s a good one, but I see you also introduced some other themes apart from this one. I like it, but the sidebar is too wide to me, and I don’t like the theme without it, so let’s try it next time.
Aug 14th at 6:58 am
classy new theme–with lots of great options! I’m tempted to check it out–but I like a custom header.
Aug 14th at 7:03 am
Thanks for the new theme. However, I am still not satisfied. Please give us more themes with better typefaces. Typefaces like: Twentieth Century Gothic, Futura, Gill Sans, something cleaner looking. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With custom headers, custom colors, and heck, custom typefaces would be great too! Please. Thank you.
Aug 14th at 7:18 am
Waow… i love it …
Aug 14th at 7:42 am
Some pieces of text in the theme are not translated to Spanish yet.
For example the “go to comments” link in each post and the “No trackbacks yet” text in each post. Also the “Subscribe to comments feed” in the footer of each post.
Please, finish translating this things, it would be GREAT!!!
Aug 14th at 8:04 am
That so great.. the Theme looks so neat and very professional
Aug 14th at 9:03 am
Looks “clear” and I like this.
Aug 14th at 9:15 am
Wow! Wonderful!!! I Like the touch of black in it!!! looks gr8!!!!. Very Professional
Aug 14th at 9:34 am
Well done WP I love it.
Aug 14th at 9:36 am
Just the theme I’ve been waiting for. Had I known WP was working on this, I might have considered staying on wp.com and not moving to wp.org, because this exact theme was the main reason for me for moving from wp.com to wp.org a month ago. I ended up with a different theme after all, but that’s another story. Too late now…but still, kudos on a job well done, and geez, you can even hide the global tags and categories in the theme options (for those of us who hate those things). Wow…I’m utterly impressed. If this theme doesn’t drive more bloggers to wp.com, I seriously don’t know which theme that would…
Aug 14th at 10:29 am
Like this a lot!
Aug 14th at 10:30 am
I have always loved iNove. Glad that is now available @ WordPress.com (I still prefer the reliability of this service to a Free Webost ;)).
I have just one request… like many I’d love to be hable to add a custom header to this theme. It would just be perfect.
Aug 14th at 11:13 am
Thanks… but we want more, more,more!!!
Aug 14th at 11:31 am
Fantastic!!! Thanks a lot!
Aug 14th at 12:05 pm
It’s fantastic that WordPress.com is offering more themes with user customization. Options are A Good Thing! Looking forward to seeing more. Thanks again!
Aug 14th at 1:37 pm
If your looking for more themes to add, how about ComicPress? It would be perfect for anyone with a webcomic, and I see a lot of webcomic sites that use the .org software using the ComicPress theme.
Aug 14th at 2:04 pm
i dont like it… the header is cool, but the rest sucks. dont take it personal, you did a good job but not my cup o tea ^^
Aug 14th at 2:07 pm
good theme, but i would use it if the content column was a bit wider
Aug 14th at 2:46 pm
I now have this. I think its cool!
Aug 14th at 2:49 pm
that’s nice n simple i think.
Aug 14th at 3:04 pm
I’m always after blogs with a custom header. What I REALLY want is something like Prophoto, since I use my blog for my photography business. Just something that allows large format pics and a custom header, maybe with a customisable background down the sides. HINT.
Aug 14th at 3:08 pm
I passed by weebly last night, it’s also hosts blogs for free. Honestly, wordpress, I was suprised to see how fantastic their themes were…………….somewhere over 150…. something for everyone. I really find wordpress lacking in this area!
Great to see another new theme! Please, please, keep them coming!
