New Theme: DePo Square

Today we’re bringing you yet another theme designed by Derek Powazek: DePo Square.

DePo Square

This theme looks great! Minimal, simple, yet unique. But, it doesn’t stop with great design. This theme comes with a seriously cool feature: post types.

Map your categories to one of five pre-defined post types — Post (default), Status, Quote, Link, or Photo — and your content will be displayed in a format special to those types.

Just select your category mappings by visiting the “Current Theme Options” under “Appearance.” No CSS or other formatting is necessary. However, if you have the CSS Upgrade you can definitely tweak those styles to your heart’s content.

You can set your widgets at the top of your blog, including special widgets just for your statuses and Flickr stream. The DePo Square Flickr Widget is formatted just right for this design.

    This new theme offers some great new features, something that WordPress users (such as myself) will certainly make use of. I am currently working on a webserial in Diary-format that will look pretty sweet with those posting options and the blog layout. Thanks again for making these wonderful themes available to the WordPress.com community.

    All the new themes are bascially sandboxes for CSS.

    This is great! It’s like a combination of the good features from Facebook and Twitter, only better. I might switch to this one.

    To me this theme seems to be something interesting and out of box. May be because in this theme you can show interesting looks of your blog to the visitors without going for any upgrades. Pretty interesting from the masses point of view.

    Is there talk of enabling bringing in feeds to the content column, like Twitter updates, Delicious (as it appears now) etc, so the posts go up automatically? There’d be a huge demand for that kind of website (although it wouldn’t be a blog, actually).

    Hi there

    Great theme ! Once again, you’re releasing a new theme that fit my needs exactly when I need it.

    Some problems I’ve met :
    The flickr widget for DePo square seems not to work : I can’t display my pictures, only the interesting one…
    The page layout display a categorie / date line, wich is not very appropriate…

    I also want to bring feeds in ! Think about flickr import too !

    Keep on working such a great way !

    Great, clean theme. Good job.

    But I think more space should be devoted to widgets. Maybe the sidebar to the left. As it is now, I only have space for three widgets and I really don’t want to choose between all I like.

    Blue, white and grey themes with gradients and dinky little icons are so 2005. Or maybe 2004. I don’t know, either way they seem to have been knocking around far too long for me to see anything innovative in them. I suppose the fact that 50% of your themes have a near-identical colour scheme acts as an incentive for people to purchase the CSS upgrade. Cunning.

    Also, I’m surprised After The Deadline didn’t catch Apperance; it hit me straight away, though only because it was bolded.

    The look is good and the top widgets are really useful , this clears a lot side space. But this is still not for me. I am using The Journalist v1.9 , and that is because it is very simple, and the main main cause is that the main column is wide. Hope wordpress.com comes with some wide column themes for free! Yay!
