Happy Halloween! It’s Theme Thursday and we are excited to announce Writr, a free content-oriented tumblelog theme.
Writr‘s modern look and attention to crisp typography let your readers focus on the content. As a responsive theme, Writr will adapt itself to any screen without sacrificing usability or design integrity.
Writr comes packed with 6 different color schemes: turquoise (default), blue, green, grey, purple, and red.
Read more about Writr on the Theme Showcase or preview it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

Very slick looking theme. Think I might try it on for size.

Not bad execution in featuring photos of articles too. Good Job!

Definitely a great tumblelog theme, but the font looks terrible in my Firefox 25.0.
Oct 31st at 9:15 pm
I love this! Oh My I frigging love WordPress.
Oct 31st at 9:24 pm

I would give serious consideration to changing to this if the main column was wider.

I like this theme but would need a PINK color option!

This theme looks so neat!

I see an unused right space though. Can we put something to it? Or is that a bug? Would be better to just make the content part wider if there’s nothing on the right side.

This might just be the theme of my dreams! One little complaint though, the text column seems to be a bit too narrow, otherwise it’s excellent.
Nov 1st at 3:58 am
I like it !

^^ It’s awesome so far.
Nov 1st at 12:19 pm
I really like this one. I might have to change my web page!

After all the work I’ve done to retrofit the layout of each post when Chateau came out, this new theme is so beautiful and suitable for my content that it might just be worth it to switch again and re-do the work. (I’m OC that way, no fault on your part. Hee!)
Thank you for this lovely thing and I might launch it on my next blog anniversary! ♥ Keep it up.
Nov 1st at 1:58 pm
Switched! Congrats, it is beautiful. Thank you!
Nov 1st at 2:32 pm
Really like and it looks great.
Nov 1st at 2:34 pm
Excellent design. I like it.

Love the new theme, “writr.” Changed to it right away. Uploaded an image to appear on the right side, and everything ties together very nicely. Kept the turquoise. Only thing: logo’s ear and part of head is cut off because of the circle. It’s supposed to be a square.

Switching themes for the first time in years to give Writr a try. The layout of the sidebar and text area are great, especially the wider text area option. My only (little) complaints are the text size (seems a bit large) and the way tweets are showing up in the sidebar. They’re a little jumbled together.

I tried to get it last night and Word Press plugins search cannot find Writr ?????? Wanted to use it for my new blog

I have just started on WordPress, but I am already in love with this theme. tried using one before, and it confused me, but when I tried this, it became so much easier to use and get around.
Nov 2nd at 2:04 pm
Lovin’ this one. Decided to take it for a spin! http://chaoticwhitespace.wordpress.com/
Nov 2nd at 3:27 pm
Nice, clean design. I need to check it more to see how much customization is available without going too much into programming.
Nov 2nd at 3:47 pm
Awesome! I used this on my blog. Check it out at sophieszone.wordpress.com
Nov 2nd at 9:08 pm
cool theme, i’m using Writr on my photo blog
Nov 3rd at 4:37 pm
Love this new theme!

Hello – I really love this theme, but there is an issue with it. When you insert pagination code it does not work well. Basically, from page 2 onwards of a post, the navigation is obscured by the like and tweet buttons. You can see that in the live demo, the post ‘Around the World in 80 days’ page 2 onwards. Is there any chance that could be fixed?
Nov 4th at 11:54 am
Thomas – thank you for your promptness. And it is a gorgeous design. Thank you for your hard work. Cannot wait to get my site up and running!
Nov 4th at 5:52 pm
Would be great to be able to turn the dark background into white. That creates a cleaner and lighter look.
Nov 4th at 6:51 pm
This is a great theme, and Thomas has fixed the bugs
Any chance to show the post categories (like the tags)?
Nov 4th at 11:03 pm
Now I do not need a Tumblr. The best theme this year!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 5th at 12:24 pm
First, let me say that I love this theme! It is absolutely perfect, except for 1 huge, glaring issue…it doesn’t play nice with internet explorer. Has anyone else had this issue? On chrome, safari, and firefox my site is beautiful (mcdonoughmusic.wordpress.com), but on internet explorer, it’s all over the place. Gravatar doesn’t show in correct spot, content area is not the right size, etc. I know ie is a mess, but as it is the most popular browser in the world, I was hoping for some better cross-compatibility. Is this a known issue?
Nov 5th at 3:19 pm
Thanks for the quick reply. Tried it on 2 different computers, each with ie8. Good to know it supports 9+. Apparently ie is no longer the most popular browser (down to ~20% market share). And according to this ( http://www.sitepoint.com/browser-trends-may-2013/ ), ie8 users are down to ~10%. I guess being able to reach 90% of all browsers is good enough for me. Thanks again for the beautiful theme!

great theme, but I’m sticking to Chateau for now
Nov 6th at 5:42 pm
Is it possible to translate the Search widget placeholder for my default locale (pt-br)?
Nov 7th at 1:01 am
Perfect blog for a writer, thus the name. If you don’t like how narrow it is, you can customize the size of post space.
Nov 7th at 3:02 am
Like it, can you please let me know if there is an ABOUT feature that could be placed at top of blog?
Nov 7th at 4:27 am
its awesome Thomas… cheers from Indonesia

I really like this theme and I used it for a little while. However, like a previous poster mentioned, I noticed a huge issue when rendering on Internet Explorer. My issue appears to be with IE 10. In that browser, on Windows 7, the navigation pane and the post icons do not show up correctly. IE 9 on Win7 and IE 11 on Win8 do not have this issue. I tried to correct this with using Compatibility View, but it didn’t change anything.
I wrote a support request for this as well, but I have not received any replies or notifications, so I though I’d try here.

Also the fonts are looking ugly on Chrome (Win7). Perfectly on IE10 (Win7). Do you know why?
