New Theme: Greyzed

Today’s new theme is dirty and grungy-looking—but that’s just what makes it so good! Let’s take a look at Greyzed.

The Greyzed Theme

While Greyzed might look rough it’s been carefully designed and it isn’t short on features. Starting at the top, it has a really sharp drop-down menu ready for our new menus feature. Visit Appearance → Menus and you can order the links here any way you like.

Customizable Drop Down Menus

The distinctive Greyzed design elements are repeated throughout your blog and finish off nicely at the bottom of each page with an optional extra-large widgetized footer in the same tough style. Visit Appearance → Widgets and add any Widget to Footer Left, Footer Middle, or Footer Right, to create your own unique footer.

Footer Widgets in Greyzed

Greyzed is available today in your WordPress.com dashboard under Appearance → Themes and, for WordPress.org users, in the WordPress.org themes directory.

    Really, really cool … I like it very much … grey, black and red is great for punk rock band blogs for example … gotta find a way use this one as soon as possible.

    I have some friends that would definitely like this theme. If I had anything grundgy or cool, I’d have used it, but I’m way too reserved in my writing ;)

    Wow, this is simply amazing! And very unique too! Great to see this one, keep them coming!

    I don’t agree that it’s too boyish, I would love to find use for this one and I’m a girl. :D Maybe on one of my other blogs.

    Though I honestly feel there should be more black themes, there are hardly any good ones right now.

    I saw this as a Blogger theme, and CSS was available for WordPress. But I didn’t want to buy it, and the CSS upgrade. I love this theme though. Keep it up, WP.

    I love this! Greyzed is the first new theme which has piqued my interest enough to actually think seriously about changing over. And you have to know, I love my own theme – – am comfortable with it and am not looking to make a change. But. . . .I’m going to think some more. Thanks to you all. Jan

    That is one NEAT theme! I`d totally go for this one if the post-background came in black! <3

    Hey, why are Black-LetterHead, Hemingway and Sunburn the only themes with really black backgrounds?
    I think a twin Greyzed would do great with a background going from grey borders, subtly into a black space with grey/white text! (Sort of like the banner/title does, only inverted… and more square.)

    I could hug and kiss you lot! How did you know this was one of my all time favourite themes on Blogger? Only problem was, I couldn’t get Windows Live Writer to sync with it, so I am going to try it out now, and if it sync’s okay with your wordpress version, I will be switching to it straight away! I love this grunge look, its fantastic!
