New Themes: iTheme 2 and Bold News

If you are doing a great job on your blog and posting regularly, sometimes important posts fade away from the home page. Sound familiar? Today, we’re excited about introducing two new themes that come with a featured section for prominently displaying some of these posts.

The first theme is iTheme 2 designed by Themify, is a free theme inspired by the instantly recognizable Apple style design that is perfect for your Mac related tech blog. By activating it, iTheme 2 immediately revamps your blog to a stylish, Apple themed cool blog.

What’s great about iTheme 2 is not only the look but also its features. It offers three color schemes and a cool featured posts carousel on the home page. Go find more about the theme on its showcase page.

The second entry is Bold News, a premium theme from WooThemes. Same as other fantastic themes from them, Bold News is also packed with customizing features as well as a featured posts carousel on the home page. Get the full details on the theme showcase page. You can upgrade your blog to Bold News directly from the showcase, or from your dashboard under Appearance → Themes.

    iTheme 2 looks amazing and seeing how I just switched to Skeptical I probably shouldn’t change to another theme again so soon right? :D

    Love love LOVE the idea of the carousel!

    Now perhaps I’m being silly here (and just didn’t see the answer above), but are these free themes or fee themes?

    Wow, I really love the look of iTheme 2. Now the only question is whether I should use iTheme 2 or Dusk To Dawn when I redesign the look of my blog.

    Thanks for giving us so many awesome themes!

    Yes, please, more themes with FEATURED POSTS! I also love the idea of the featured posts carousel!

    PLEASE can you implement those functionalities on more themes? Or even better, could you roll it back to the already existing themes? Like my current theme, Comet, perhaps? Pretty please?

    I’m trying out itheme2 because I think the Post Carousel is a very good idea! It will take some time, though, to set a featured image on the posts I want to make sticky. I plan on sizing my featured images for iTheme2 (593X261 pixels), and hope they will look right if I switch to another theme that uses featured images!

    By the way – is there a possibility to turn off the sidebar on selected pages ?

    I really love the clean layout of iTheme2 – does it have a full-width layout though? I definitely don’t need the sidebar on every single page.

    • Takashi Irie

      I’m afraid there is no option to disable sidebar nor a full-width page template in iTheme2. The only way to disable / hide the sidebar is customising the theme CSS with Custom Design upgrade.

    PS.
    After I tried it, things I really like from iTheme2 are:
    1. It gives a lot more headline spaces for page. It put pages in a proper position.
    2. It has custom header.
    3. It’s sleek and elegant.
    4. It’s very.. Mac. XD

    Keep themes like this rolling out! Thumbs up!!

    Oh, and the cons is:
    1. The content width is smaller than choco theme.
    2. The right sidebar is in a small chuck, unlike in choco theme.

    But, oh whatever. Despite the cons, I still love this theme far enough. :D
