New Themes: Publisher and Zoren

Publisher: Home Page

What better way to kick off August than with two new themes? Today we have both a premium theme and a free theme for your viewing pleasure, Publisher and Zoren.

Publisher is the first premium theme on WordPress.com by our newest partner Okay Themes. We’re incredibly thrilled with the designs that Mike McAlister of Okay Themes has in store for you all, starting with Publisher.

Curate an eclectic scrapbook of photos, videos, audio, and more with Publisher. Featuring a responsive, masonry-style layout, Publisher looks just as good on your mobile device as it does on the desktop. It was meticulously designed and developed with simplicity and usability in mind. Every pixel and line of code has been researched and scrutinized, resulting in one of the neatest, leanest, standards-driven themes out there.

Publisher is a premium upgrade for your blog; read more about its features on the Theme Showcase or dive right into previewing it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

Next up is Zoren, a responsive theme designed by FabThemes; it’s perfect for a personal blog. The responsive design means it adjusts and resizes itself to the screen resolutions of various devices.

Because Zoren is a flexible and versatile theme, it doesn’t matter what you blog about — technology, photography, food, sports, etc., — Zoren will handle it and display your content with simplicity and elegance.

Did I also mention that Zoren comes with some great features? A sidebar for your widgets and a full-width page template, and support for post formats.

Happy blogging!

    I just love trying out new themes and the Theme Team here is so productive. Bless them one and all for providing such an wide ranging selection of beautifully designed themes packed with useful features. Hmmm … Zoren may test my commitment to Twenty Eleven. I’m off to test it now.

    Any chance these themes would be on sale for WordPress.org users? I am very interested in Publisher. Thanks!

    I like the creativity but I hope we get more themes like Ascetica, only with a smaller, crisper font, and the possibilities of adding more colours.

    I would love a simple theme with a handwritten title, so it has some style but also looks clean!

    Would appreciate themes that do not require the stupid infinite scroll and how about adding option for page numbers instead?

      By default the Infinite Scroll is not activated. If it is, you can still remove it (Settings > Reading)

        That’s rather useless actually since the only thing you get is a manual break with a “load more” link to add more posts on a single page. Before you know it you have 600 posts all loaded up on one page slowing your browser down. It’s pointless considering how hard it makes finding points within a blog. Scroll down 800 posts to something you find interesting, come back tomorrow and can’t find what page it’s on.

    I love it, using it for my Blog http://www.JDMCollective.co.uk however, I cant figure out how to: Instead of having a whole post just a short summery, I use catagories to section out my post’s like a website, sounds weird but go check it out. I can’t figure out how to have one picture a short summary instead of the whole post and all the post’s on one page if that makes sense??

    I’ve just switched my garden blog to Zoren – it’s the best it’s looked since I started blogging – it shows off photo posts and galleries really well, has easy-read text, smart fonts and adapts well when viewed on tablets too – brilliant for a free theme! A word of warning though – a couple of people with older OS and browsers have said that it does not display correctly for them, leaving it illegible, whereas my previous themes all displayed OK.

    I’ve just tried Zoren on my blog and love how it displayed my captions in my first gallery. It looks much better than with my old theme. Although, I love dark backgrounds, I’ve switched my blog to Zoren.

    It’s very interesting but captions in the gallery look much better on the iPad than on the computer, so back to my old theme :(
