New Theme: Under The Influence

“Under The Influence” is a unique and highly customizable new theme. This theme sports two main content columns and loads of options, providing a unique design for all your visitors to enjoy.

Under The Influence

Aside from a unique design, this theme has lots of great options. Too many to count! For starters, there are multiple header designs, color pickers for main and accent colors, and adjustable column sizes for the expert blogger.

Lots of options!

With just a few clicks you can get an alternate header design with the colors of your choice.

Alternate Header Design

The theme doesn’t stop with the goods either. The footer keeps things stylish with flourishes and a cool multi-column layout!

The footer is stylin'!

“Under The Influence” is available for WordPress.com users under Appearance -> Themes. It is also available for WordPress.org users from the Theme Directory. (What’s the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com?)

    Thank you guys!! :)
    I’ve waited so long for something like that!
    The new theme is fantastic, wonderful, awesome!
    so many options, and could be set to 3-columns, and with custom header at the same time!!
    Thank you so much!! :))

    I think it would be a good idea to have another sorting option “New”. So we could get to the newly introduced themes lot quicker.

    It is nice to see more themes becoming available. I am disappointed that they are all so plain however, I’m hoping that is that new theme team or whatever it is called we will get some more variety. Anyway even if I don’t like them more options are good. Kudos!

    It’s nice for some “daylight homeoffice” style of blogging. You know, i’m blogging on grown-up dark Sci-Fi Videogames. I’m pretty happy with “Chaos Theory” so far, but if you really want to do me a favour, you could create something that fits more in the compartment labeled “dark strategic military command center”… black and blue toned, highly functional, focused ambient. ;)

    Hello Noel from Ukraine !

    Now, I will say you that this IS very interesting as for me, this theme has the customisable header which I require for my Blog.

    So, now I will test this for certainty, I think this is for me, mine now a little stale to my eye.

    Sincerely to you,

    Marina.

    Very nice! I tried it out on my mock blog. It’s gorgeous. I’m sure other WP bloggers will love the customizable features. When I have some time, I may switch to this. I’m currently in Chaotic Soul and would need to change the type color on many of my archived posts to contrast the white background. I’m lovin’ all you Theme Teamers. Keep up the good work.

    I ‘ve applied this theme to one of my blogs, but I got a trouble with “Header” under “Appearance” option.
    I think there’s something wrong with that option. I couldn’t hide the header text. I clicked the “Hide Text” button and then “Save Changes” button, but the text still appeared.

    This is a cool theme, I hope the team can fix this soon

    Nice that its so customisable but its not for me. I like the writing area to be at least 700 pixels wide and please keep us users in mind who don’t know how to alter things. I need help with my Avatar on Inuit themes. Its sort of dissappeared and I don’t know how to get it back. (my photo I mean)
    How about a theme with rounded corners for its widgets and main writing area, customisable header, different choice of fonts, choose to show full posts or in a list view, Place pic of author in header etc.

    It is a nice theme but I was wondering if there could be some more themes that are fun and have a lot of color. Something that is upbeat and interesting. Nothing that is in your face but some things with some more color. Some more like Albeo, Banana Smoothie, or Dark Wood (maybe the wood could be a little lighter. Like cherry oak or pine wood.) Thanks very much.
