New Theme: The Morning After

Say hello to The Morning After, a classic and popular magazine-style theme that has withstood the test of time. Based on its great success for self-hosted sites we’re excited to bring it to you for the first time on WordPress.com.

Example of The Morning After's front page.

Introduced in 2007 by Arun Kale, The Morning After was a game-changer as the first magazine style theme for WordPress; it is still considered by many to be the top of its class. In June 2010 WooThemes announced it was taking over the theme:

Considering the significance of this theme, we jumped at the opportunity. We felt that [The Morning After] started so many things in the WordPress community… and we wanted to put our weight behind one of the “pillars” of that community.

The Morning After sports a special home page template with featured posts, three available widget areas, and special styles for posts in the “Aside” format. Also included is an optional full-width page template that removes the sidebar and full support for a custom menu, header and background. A robust theme options menu allows for further customization: header links, page headings, full or partial content an archive pages, and more.

The Morning After is now available in your WordPress.com dashboard and, for self-hosted sites as a download from WooThemes.

    it looks like fine. But I think it lacks a unique feeling. But it was based on magazine style anyway. I hope there will be another magazine styled theme that gives fresh concept. Keep up the good work!

    I like it, started using it yesterday. I dunno if it’s more SEO or what, but my traffic doubled overnight, and it was all search engine related.

    Switched over to this a few days ago and really like it but there are few things I wish it would offer (can’t think of them now, of course). Either way, great job :)
