New Theme: iNove

iNove by mg12 is one of the top themes used for self-hosted WordPress blogs, and a commonly requested addition to our offerings here on WordPress.com. We’re always doing what we can to bring you the cool new stuff you want, so now you’ve got it, too! iNove for WordPress.com:

inove

Some handy features of this theme:

  • Display pages or categories in the menu below your header.
  • Display your page hierarchy in your menu on hover.
  • Options to show a notice, banner, and special showcase widget to registered users, visitors, or commentators. You control your message.
  • The ability to hide and show authors, categories, and tags on posts.
  • Remove your sidebar with a single click.

You’ll find all of these settings under Appearance > Current Theme Options in your dashboard after you’ve activated iNove.

To do that, go to Appearance > Themes in your dashboard, find iNove (they’re in alpha order), and click Preview to see how it will look on your blog. If you dig it, click Activate and it’s yours.

This one not quite for you? Keep an eye on the news blog for more themes, coming soon 🙂

    I just had a look at the WordPress.com themes. If you filter by popularity, the first 9, as well as # 11, 13 and 15, are all themes with custom headers. Considering there ARE only 28 themes available with custom headers, it looks to me like people want more! Another hint. 🙂

    There’s any way to remove the standard widget that comes with it? Like Meta, Categories and Archives? I’m talking about the blogs hosted in wodpress, not the self-hosteds.
    Thanks.

      To clear out the default widgets, add a blank text widget under Appearance > Widgets. This will eliminate the ones that are there so you can start fresh 🙂

    I know Custom Header is not an option, but, and I don’t know much about the programming involved, can it be added to the official theme?

    What’d it take?

    Is there a way we can pick which ones are active for those who liked having them?

    what the f…?? why do you kill the great options in the sidebar??? now it’s a boring huge block, while before i was able to style it the way i wanted with one and two columns exactly WHERE i wanted them to be! that was a FIRST on wordpress.com, and you kill it! that’s a shame, really. i was so happy with the theme, but now it lost a huge part of it’s appeal 😦

      You can enable and disable widgets in one click. That screenshot happens to show them disabled. No worries, all the functionality is there 🙂

    It took me three hours yesterday to get the sidebars as I wanted them, having multiple sidebars was the reason I swapped Themes in the first place – and now it’s all gone!

    You can hardly call it an “Upgrade” when you reduce a really innovative theme to just a normal Blog template….. it’s more of a Downgrade, really!

    What happened to the south, east and west side bars that were there yesterday? I noticed mine were gone today, and had to move the widgets that were in them–Categories, Archives and Calendar–to the one sidebar left (formally known as north). http://mattamesblogs.wordpress.com. P.S. I’m loving this theme! Great work!

    I like the theme, and would use it, but I’m not inclined to pay for custom CSS just to remove the RSS button, which while perhaps of value to some, is a bit problematic for those of us using Feedburner or other outside sources that are more customizable than the built-in solution.

    More themes always it is good news !

    I´m using this theme and I changed the options to show the categories in the top menu, but I´m having some problems with differents resolutions. When the category has subcategories the submenu show up too far so I can´t click it. This occurs when I´m using a resolution of 1280×800, but with a resolution of 1024×768 it works, but not very well, it is possible to click on the submenu but it is really hard.

    I hope you fix it because iNove is a wonderful theme.

    The theme looks great. However when the syntax highlighter plugin is used along with this theme, the code posted in the blog does not align well in all browsers. In some browsers (Opera) the line numbers take too much space and in others (Chrome) the end regions of the code box is grayed out. Can you fix this ?

    Syntax highlighter can be found here -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/syntaxhighlighter/

    Switching to a different theme causes the syntax highlighter to work as usual

    Nice! Though I haven’t used the theme yet it is an attractive option as I look towards a change.

    I liked possibilities with the four sidebars and would like to see them back. They’ll almost disappear by adding a text widget with a single space in the title. But that’s not why I’m commenting…

    … having the date on content is usually helpful but it’s not necessarily ideal to have it on pages as well as posts. I might work out how to hide it with css but a radio button somewhere would be easier!

    Thanks.
