This theme looks great! Minimal, simple, yet unique. But, it doesn’t stop with great design. This theme comes with a seriously cool feature: post types.
Map your categories to one of five pre-defined post types — Post (default), Status, Quote, Link, or Photo — and your content will be displayed in a format special to those types.
Just select your category mappings by visiting the “Current Theme Options” under “Appearance.” No CSS or other formatting is necessary. However, if you have the CSS Upgrade you can definitely tweak those styles to your heart’s content.
You can set your widgets at the top of your blog, including special widgets just for your statuses and Flickr stream. The DePo Square Flickr Widget is formatted just right for this design.

Is it available for WordPress.org users?
Oct 1st at 12:43 am
All the new themes are bascially sandboxes for CSS.
Oct 1st at 12:56 am
This is great! It’s like a combination of the good features from Facebook and Twitter, only better. I might switch to this one.
Oct 1st at 1:40 am
nice theme, i like it.
Oct 1st at 1:47 am
Nice feature. This is insane. Thanks WP for bringing this cool stuff.
Oct 1st at 1:51 am
Looks good. Going to try it now.
Oct 1st at 1:53 am
great new features THANKS a million
Oct 1st at 2:24 am
I am going to test it soon. I love themes; the more the better!
Please give us a real magazine theme such as Arthemia!
Oct 1st at 2:28 am
I love it. I’m giving it a try! Thanks for the cool new addition!
Oct 1st at 3:11 am
The only flaw is we can’t put widgets on its sidebar.
Oct 1st at 3:16 am
Oct 1st at 3:26 am
This is really cool. Won’t meet my needs right now but I look forward to running into it around town!
Oct 1st at 3:44 am
The layout is very much like tumblr – clean, simple, minimal and slick.
Oct 1st at 3:59 am
When I searched for theme in my theme page, it showed only “DePo Masthead” not “DePo Square”.
Oct 1st at 4:41 am
To me this theme seems to be something interesting and out of box. May be because in this theme you can show interesting looks of your blog to the visitors without going for any upgrades. Pretty interesting from the masses point of view.
Oct 1st at 4:53 am
Strange, I don’t see the new theme in the list….
Oct 1st at 4:56 am
I love his design, actually I am using his theme currently, i might change for a new blog.
Oct 1st at 5:02 am
I’m tumblified! (sorry, i have to make that joke louder, lol)
You guys don’t mess around in work!
Oct 1st at 5:22 am
Is there talk of enabling bringing in feeds to the content column, like Twitter updates, Delicious (as it appears now) etc, so the posts go up automatically? There’d be a huge demand for that kind of website (although it wouldn’t be a blog, actually).
Oct 1st at 5:35 am
Wonderful idea. I just wish it had a custom header…
Oct 1st at 5:55 am
Oct 1st at 6:41 am
Oct 1st at 6:48 am
I just wish the widget area was flexible. Currently its fixed width/length and most of my widgets do not fit well in the limited space
Oct 1st at 7:45 am
seems it is mac inspired theme.
Oct 1st at 8:16 am
I like the sound of this.
Oct 1st at 8:22 am
Great theme ! Once again, you’re releasing a new theme that fit my needs exactly when I need it.
Some problems I’ve met :
The flickr widget for DePo square seems not to work : I can’t display my pictures, only the interesting one…
The page layout display a categorie / date line, wich is not very appropriate…
I also want to bring feeds in ! Think about flickr import too !
Keep on working such a great way !
Oct 1st at 8:26 am
i love this theme.
Oct 1st at 8:42 am
may be something minimalist at first, but It have many details.
Oct 1st at 9:11 am
this theme is soooooooooooooooooooooo cool!!! xD
i LOVE you, WP! xD <3
Oct 1st at 9:13 am
I’m using Neo-Sapien theme. Is there any update of the design such as allowing us to use the extra spaces adjacent to the header?
Oct 1st at 10:00 am
ooow.. another great theme from wordpress.. thank you..
Oct 1st at 10:25 am
Oct 1st at 10:57 am
Great, clean theme. Good job.
But I think more space should be devoted to widgets. Maybe the sidebar to the left. As it is now, I only have space for three widgets and I really don’t want to choose between all I like.
Oct 1st at 11:04 am
oh, it has the ‘features’ I loved about TUMBLR with all the WordPress extras (as standard) cooooool x x
Oct 1st at 11:16 am
I tried it.
Oct 1st at 11:33 am
Consider enabling features like “pre-defined post types” in other themes, please.
Oct 1st at 12:31 pm
Hm… maybe i will try it. i like my today’s theme but it is always interesting to try something new.
Oct 1st at 1:38 pm
Blue, white and grey themes with gradients and dinky little icons are so 2005. Or maybe 2004. I don’t know, either way they seem to have been knocking around far too long for me to see anything innovative in them. I suppose the fact that 50% of your themes have a near-identical colour scheme acts as an incentive for people to purchase the CSS upgrade. Cunning.
Also, I’m surprised After The Deadline didn’t catch Apperance; it hit me straight away, though only because it was bolded.
Oct 1st at 1:47 pm
The look is good and the top widgets are really useful , this clears a lot side space. But this is still not for me. I am using The Journalist v1.9 , and that is because it is very simple, and the main main cause is that the main column is wide. Hope wordpress.com comes with some wide column themes for free! Yay!
Oct 1st at 2:01 pm
Like this a lot and have started using it – but the fact you can’t feed twitter updates to a status post a bit frustrating! Is their a way to do this that I’ve missed?
Oct 1st at 2:39 pm
Could a DePo Square Quotes widget be made like the DePo Square Status widget. Then I could have About, Status, and Quotes right across the top of my blog. It would be great!
Oct 1st at 3:18 pm
Wow… now we can tumblog on WP too
Oct 1st at 5:43 pm
I’ve added my Flickr feed in the feed rss url but nothing changes. It worked for you?
Oct 1st at 6:38 pm
I just wonder why we barely ever get any darker designs, esp. considering that the most popular theme is black.
Oct 1st at 7:30 pm
Nice and Clean, I like it. Thanks Derek Powazek and DePo Square + WordPress.
Oct 1st at 9:57 pm
For some reason, the ‘About’ link at the top contains a tick mark in the URL. I can’t even change the About page URL to match that temporarily.
Oct 1st at 10:59 pm
Thanks for the work!
I would like to see wider themes in WordPress.com, I don’t know why (almost) all of them are so thin…
By the way, Ipernity exists also!
Oct 1st at 11:19 pm
looks super sweet

I’m a great follower/lover of DePo themes. I’m already using DePo Masthead in my blog. Going to try DePo Square in another blog of mine very soon. Kudos to Depo and WP.com team!
Oct 2nd at 1:54 am
Yeach this theme is great. Unfortunately, we cannot add widgets on the sidebar.
Just imagine if there’s a template that has features like DePo Square (such as its post-types ability), plus an elegant sidebar. That will be great.
Oct 2nd at 2:50 am
I like its .. so unique … ^_^
Oct 2nd at 4:12 am
coolness! i figure that it’s got some tumblr aspects.
Oct 2nd at 6:50 am
Oct 2nd at 7:42 am
nice one! the post types are so tumblr-like.
Oct 2nd at 8:40 am

Oct 2nd at 5:33 pm
Look good, but i can´t use it. I love my widgets
Oct 2nd at 5:40 pm
Great theme. Keep them coming! A theme that would allow you to change the background color of individual posts would be great. I’d love to be able to create a post on a black background one day and white the next. It’s a gray kinda thing.
Oct 2nd at 7:06 pm
It’s new.. Not exceptional though.. Having said that appreciate the fact that WP is always helping out by bringing out stuff like this..
Oct 3rd at 1:31 am
I actually am not a big fan of this theme, but I suppose if you put a lot of work into it, it can be good.
Oct 3rd at 5:43 am
wow, that’s so neat! i love neat themes, they really give the blog this professional look keep up the GREAT work!
Oct 3rd at 8:39 am
Is it just me, or does the flickr square not work?
I’m pretty sure my RSS feed is correct as it used to work with the previous flickr badge so what gives hey?
Oct 3rd at 3:07 pm
love the theme. but i wonder if i can remove the flickr depo and status depo widget from the top-bar. i dont need them…
Oct 3rd at 4:58 pm
It looks awesome, I’ll change now. Keep up the truly awesome work, WP team!!
Oct 3rd at 9:39 pm
Nice theme, but I hope for more themes with color in the future
A lot of themes are white =(
Oct 3rd at 10:54 pm
Yet another white theme…
May we please have new themes that not only have great technical features, but also look good visually? Look good as in having different rich colors, deep grays with bright contrasting colors, and thoughtful creative designs I mean?
Oct 4th at 2:06 am
This one looks good. I like DePo’s way of making themes. Large fonts and clean layout.
Oct 4th at 2:13 am
Kind of creepily Facebookish, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s pretty.
Oct 4th at 3:03 am
Oct 4th at 8:11 am
Great great great!! Should I change my theme again Oohh..
Oct 4th at 11:00 am
This looks like a great new minimalistic theme .. on the lines of Posterous but with more bells and whistles. Great job. Well done.
Oct 4th at 12:23 pm
nice theme, cool!
Oct 4th at 3:38 pm
Oct 4th at 6:41 pm
cool, still waiting for the feature of changing colors to everything without having CSS.
Oct 4th at 6:55 pm
Would love to use this theme, but the inability to add side widgets is annoying. Would love to see this feature added!
Oct 4th at 8:22 pm
love it amazing =)
Oct 4th at 10:11 pm
Oct 4th at 11:26 pm
NICE DESIGN MMINIMALIS
Oct 5th at 2:15 am
