New Theme: Comet

Comet—the latest theme addition to our growing collection—sports a lightweight, faded design with simple and classy typographic touches. Perfect for any type of blog, it works really well for showcasing your writing and photos.

Comet home page example.

Make it yours by choosing from seven color schemes and four different layout options.

Customize it even further with a header image, background, and custom menu. Comet also includes a full-width template for dropping the sidebar on pages. See more information on the Theme Showcase.

Designed by Frostpress, Comet is available now in your dashboard under Appearance → Themes and, for self-hosted blogs at the WordPress.org theme directory.

    WOW! This is such a genuine yet powerful theme. I like the clarity of content arrangement and the full width option. Gonna try it for my non-profit’s blog. Thank you theme team.

    Activated it… Really, really good theme. I was using Coraline for a while now and this scores better because of the demarcations between the sections. The typography is nice, though Arial might have looked better. :) I like the widget header style … and the box around the “Read More” tag. Good choice WP team….

    Thanks for theme!

    This looks like a great theme. I think WP should do free themes for writing — like people who use their blogs to write short stories, novels or poetry. I know it has a “book” theme but a free one would be nice to have. Keep on the cool themes WP.

    I like the seven color scheme options as well as the four different layout options. Another useful feature is being able to hide the sidebar on pages using the “Full Width” template. Thanks for this theme. :)

    Now that I’ve looked closer, this theme is perfect for me. Except the max width of photos shown is 600. I wish it didn’t resize my 640 images. But other than that, great theme!

    900 pixels width in full-width layout, no theme can beat Modularity Lite full-width size of 950 pixels yet…

      Take a look at: Château: 960 and Coraline and Pilcrow: 990 (for the full-width template). Also, Andrea with the fluid width option is 1000.

    When I first read this, I thought this was in reference to a comet coming to Earth as is constantly the speculation for 2011-2012. Very nice interface you have here and it is making me consider a switchover for the tarot market as people in Europe in particular probably want something different.

    I’ve just switched over, and I love this theme. Thanks.

    I also really like the demo site, especially the page with all the HTML elements. It would be even nicer if some of the posts/pages had comments, so we could see how comments are displayed (especially with several levels of replies to comments).

    I love what another blogger up there in the comments called “genuine.”
    It really has a comfortable feel to it, like clothes you’ve worn for a long time.

    A lot of site designs don’t make you feel relaxed. This one does!
    I’ve been using Coraline for so long, however, that I am hesitant to switch…

    Nice and clean as always, but I’m still at a loss for more themes with a variety of colors. Not too many, like Matala, but enough to make the theme more exciting. Thanks for the post!
