Sandbox 1.6.1 is now available to all WordPress.com blogs.
Alongside Sandbox 1.6.1 you’ll also find the older Sandbox versions. We’ve left them intact. If you’ve been using them, don’t worry, they haven’t changed. However, we do urge you to check out 1.6.1.
Sandbox is a skeleton theme for WordPress. Though you can use it by itself, it’s mainly intended for dressing up with a Custom CSS Stylesheet upgrade. Sandbox provides all the HTML markup, with a rich semantic structure, and all sorts of microformats and standards built in. You provide the stylesheet, which controls the appearance: layout, colors, fonts and so forth.
If you’re using an older version of Sandbox and are unsure whether Sandbox 1.6.1 is a good upgrade, or whether Sandbox 1.6.1 will work with your current custom stylesheet, here’s how you can try it out:
- Visit Appearance/Themes then find Sandbox 1.6.1.
- Click Preview.
- If all looks good, activate the theme.
We hope you enjoy this great update to a very powerful and popular theme!

Great theme, I want to know a little lit of CSS for use this theme.
Awesome and interesting news! I’m gonna go see how my blog looks with this one.
Cool! Keep up the truly AWESOME job, WP!!
Very useful add on. I will think about getting the css upgrade. :P
It would be nice if someone out there created a gallery of CSS templates for this theme.
While it gives a lot of power to the designer, there’s a bit of a down side since you’re starting from scratch.
oh, okay ._.
please more themes
I don’t really like it. But it’s cool. I never have liked Sandbox themes.
Thanks for new themes.
wow, another interesting theme from wordpress. thanks!
Thanks for new themes :)
Great!!! Although I’m not a big fan of the Sandbox trilogy, Your doing a great job WordPress!! Keep it up!!
what theme perfect for website ?
Thanks… but we need more themes!!
If I was a CSS expert I would be all over this. Maybe one day I will be but I am not even sure where to start.
Thanks for providing new themes though!
Thanx for the update.
Once you know CSS Sandbox is great to work with.
@eksith There is at least one person who makes especially such templates. Look at ntuat.wordpress.com, there you will find some examples and a guide how to use these templates.
Thanks, dunno if I’ll use it but it’s nice you guys keep adding content for us all.
yeah , it’s need many customization on its css
Thanks a lot!
One of these days I will try this theme out. Have always been hesitant due to the tech work involved!
Theme craze at WP lately? :) Nice!
Same question that Zaeriuraschi already asked:
Is this free CSS for wordpress.com hostet Blogs not wanting to upgrade indiviual CSS?
Thnx for answering
only if u think abt CSS upgrade :(
it’s nice :)
I have been using Sandbox 1.1 for several months. Are the updated features in 1.6.1 listed anywhere?
@eksith – there were a number of templates created for the Sandbox competion. You can find them here.. I used one of these (Diurnal) as a starting point for my own.
Sweet theme. Thanks.
I might give it a try, looks good!
Wooh! I love new themes! Exept I have no idea how to use CSS. I think Ill stick with iNove
Nice, looking forward to some new themes.
If I wouldn’t have to by the upgrade for using CSS… then I might consider using the theme.
Maybe you guys should give it some serious thinking to leave the upgrade for free? .. I mean.. we aint all billionairs on here
Yah! I love getting new themes. Thanks!
nice info.. but i will try this later.. thx for share..
Just cool. really cool.
And what about New version Freshy Theme 2 ? :wink:
I always loved playing in the sandbox. Thanks WP!

Yup, I agree with javcasta but I’m not changing mine yet. This one looks too adultish for a 14 years old girl like me. It’s a nice one for company’s blogs.
Please keep on adding new themes. I’m thinking of changing my theme and I’d like new ones but none of the latest suits my taste.
thanks , let me give a try
Very nice indeed!

Thanks again to wordpress.com for offering new features and features to the service. Unfortunately, I am not very good with CSS, so this theme will not be as useful to myself as it is for others.Here’s hoping that you guys add some more sci-fi themes soon, such as Dark Planet & Mars Spirit.
