New Theme: Retro-fitted

I’m pleased to announce the latest addition to the ever-growing collection of free themes here at WordPress.com. Retro-fitted by Justin Tadlock mixes subtle textures with clean lines and shadows to create a beautifully balanced composition perfect for all types of blogs.

Retro-fitted can be personalized in a variety of ways. Customize the look of your blog by uploading a header and background image. Take control of you navigation by configuring the dropdown menu. Add widgets to the sidebar for a two-column layout or leave it empty for a single column design.

Check it out in the Theme Showcase.

    That’s a pretty unique theme! Not quite my style, but I’m sure a lot of people will use it. :)

  2. Bosstiger

    I do like this theme; it’s classic like, simple, and wonderful. I like its graphics, and the style is simple and clean. All together, WordPress rocks and so does this theme! Congratulations to the designer/coder :D

  7. Mikalee Byerman

    I do love have simple and clean the 2-column design is — totally easy for navigation. And I’m digging the almost 3D effect of the posts…brilliant!

  8. K Smith

  23. T Mills

    Thanks for the theme. I’m giving it a try. Is there anyway to make the sidebar boxes (around the widget’s) smaller. ie. my RSS feed looks so lonely in there. :)

  24. Randhir Tandon

    I Like Your Themes Very Much…….But How Can I Use It For Creat A Blog……?????

  25. 850music

    I kind of like it — I hope there are more grungy themes on the horizon – even for a fee. I’m not in love with what I have – but it best respresents my blog at this time.

  26. Erik

    Classy, simple, and ‘easy on the eyes’.

  43. schluesseldiensthamburg

    Pretty cool, but I’ll choose Suburbia.

  44. Rachmat Wahidi

    Nice one, but I’m still like the recent theme on my blog.

  45. righteouschoices

    I really like the look of this theme…but what happened to the HOME tab?

  46. blackdhe

    A simple theme, nice!

  47. spinx04

    Nice theme, it is loading faster than my previous theme [^_^]

  48. heatsfanalt

    cool!

  49. The Oasis Projekt

    I like this a lot. The shadows I think create a very rich look, without over-doing anything. Well done! :)

  50. liz blackmore

    Looking good! Clean and easy on the eyes.

  51. Deborah

    I’ve been waiting for a theme like this to come along. It works well in terms of accessibility: big fonts, lots of clear space, the “Leave a comment” links in a reasonably visible colour. I would like to be able to turn the orange line and the orange search box into different colours, but I suspect that I would still be looking for a dramatic contrast.

    I have it loaded on my blog if anyone wants to take a look: http://beefaerie.wordpress.com/

    Thanks for the great theme.

  52. bloo

    I’m not sure is the style I want, but I think it will be useful to other WordPress users.

  53. Ans

    Looks nice; Will try on my test blog then move to official one;

  54. mydestiny2011

    I prefer a clean cut without too big images coz I use plenty of text, anyway i think many will like this.

  55. SmilingCat01

    Nice! I’m using it. It’s really unique. Totally my type.

  56. Simon

    Thanks for this great theme!

  57. eddiblog

  58. awrenfro

  59. Marcia Clarke

    Nice and clean, great for photos.

  60. blinkiexxx

    Ooo I like a bit of retro but as a new user here, themes are something I’ll look into later!

  61. Jade Elizabeth

    I like it, but then again I like anything retro.
