Sleek, and bursting with elegance, I’m happy to bring you monochrome, another addition to the wonderful collection of themes available on WordPress.com. monochrome is a beautiful theme with wonderful details.
The name comes from the theme’s monochromatic color palette. Beautiful and sleek, it’s the attention to detail that really makes this theme shine.
The headers and dates are uniquely styled. The menu shows sub pages, with a nice smooth animation as well. And don’t forget the custom search box widget styled up with rounded corners.
Want to check out monochrome? Just login to your WordPress.com blog and click on Appearance -> Themes in the sidebar. Preview the theme and if you like it, activate it.
If you are a WordPress.org user, please check out monochrome on the .org Theme Repository
Looks pretty neat, but here’s a question for those of us who don’t want to re-organize their whole blog, can you choose that the drop-down menu at the top, and the “tabs”, will be for Pages rather than Categories? Having some 20 categories, it just won’t work on my blog, and I’m sure many others’.
Pretty. If I ever change my look I’m going to use this one. (and by “my look” I mean my blog’s, not my own)
God! love it love it love it!
Wow! I love this! Now, I need another blog to use it. How many can one person have? :) Great work, Noel.
I love it… may give it a try on my new blog. :D
Is it compatible with iNove theme?
Finally a theme I will actually like. Not just because its black and white. :)
Nice look. Thanks again, bro!
Looks nice… will try it out
WOW… wonderful theme.Thanks Noel, I will try it.
Very nice and nodern looking. May have to give it a spin and see how it does.
Groooovy! Its so much better than the other Monochromatic one – Unsleepable.
I find it hard to read knocked-out white fonts on dark backgrounds. I think I’ll pass unless I can switch the background color. I’ll preview my blog for a better look. Thanks.
Very nice. Stuff like this makes me wish I had more to say and could start a new blog! WP just keeps getting better.
Very nice looking. I will try this out.
wowezo! I might use this.
Very nice, but I prefer the theme “Omagazine”. Hope wp would offer it soon.
It looks lovely and the features are nice too. Thanks.
P.S. The link you posted above in this sentence is a 404: “If you are a WordPress.org user, please check out monochrome on the .org Theme Repository”
Yes, Looking Nic, I am using a similar theme on my personal blog, will try this for sure.
BTW, there’re a few changes I’d like to see implemented with this theme:
(1) Make the Blog Title as well as the Post Title font a li’l bigger. They get kinda lost among all the black and white :P
(2) Size of the “Quote” box reduced a bit. Even a one-liner uote is resulting in a big box that kinda takes up unnecessary space
(3) Remove the grayish border around images. People use different borders (I use rounded, for e.g.) and those tweaks get lost with the forced-on image border
(4) Tooltips have rounded edges, which show up ugly-like on a black background :(
Also, did you notice that checking the “Use categories for header menu” option under “Theme Options” breaks the homepage? I’ll put in a Support ticket as well.
Yes I love it, has a cool style to it.
that is veery bootiful! I looked at the photo and thought it said “Van Antwerp Blog” – intentional???? ;)
you guys just get better and better.
The link in “If you are a WordPress.org user, please check out monochrome on the .org Theme Repository” should be pointing to, http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/monochrome
Looks like a beautiful theme, a very nice addition.
The WordPress team strikes gold once again! Thanks for the new theme!
Sleek and classy, all right! Congratulations.
Look nice, and the animation feature is also fun. :)
I am going try this.
Really good looking. Too bad it’s not for me.
Very nice. I will try it.
I love it but I love mine now I may have to test this theme out
The RSS subsrciption link in the sidebar doesn’t show if I don’t turn on the “Information” at the top of the sidebar, otherwise it works and looks great.
Eve catching and Tempting!
That’s pretty awesome!!!! I’m sooooooooo trying it.
Great theme. Was wondering if there’s a way to make the pictures align center? They all seem to align left, even when I chose for it to align center. Thanks. =)
Anybody able to say if this theme — or Hell, any others — includes a next/previous post function automatically?
GREEEEEEEEEEEEEAT job! Love it! :)
man, if it had a custom header, we would be all over it.
Wow, Please give more themes from the .org directory! :)
This is an absolutely exquisite theme. I’ve been waiting for something like this. Great job! :D
wow………… it’s cool…..!!!!
It look’s really cool m8 i’ll have a go
Excellent theme, now i have to see if my only requirement matches: the width.
Existing pictures are overflowing the body column. My existing theme is Journalist v1.9 .
No header? :(
9s,tks so much :)
Cool …. I will use it…
Very nice, but I can’t use it as there is no way to make a contact site.
So I returned to misty look again.
I like it! It’s very simple, but modern and elegant. I might try it out with my blog.
good looking & easy to use
Great theme, love the feature of appearing page no. in the bottom. I have a small question too. I need to put selected categories in the top navigation, in the theme options I found the box where I have to put the category id which I don’t want to display. But how can I find a category id in wordpress.com blog.
Don’t stop to impress people
I had a preview. Pity no custom-header! Otherwise pretty striking.
simply lovely!!! thank you thank you thank you
One word: wow!
I will use it
Looks sweet, wonder how it tastes…
loves it!!! trying….
It looks amazing!
I like this theme, but there isnt the link to next post and pre post in one post as other theme. This take me a little uncomfortable! Could you modify this?
Tried it out for 5 minutes before reverting to Mistylook. All my blockquotes using the more eye-friendly caused first two sentences in block on top of each other. Changing to
works but I have more than 4,000 posts and (1) do not want or have the time to convert all of these; (2) not converting leaves first two sentences on top of each other; and (3) the blockquote boxes are totally incompatible with the rest of the look of the theme. Sorry. Great try but needs refinement.
Nice blockquote … which converted my ul codes and blockquote codes. To restate, I use ul for blocking instead of blockquote due to appearance (negates ugly over sized quote marks).
I would really really like a black theme (without the bright orange), nice and classic, just like the one blogspot has. There are lots of white-background themes, but no black, nice and simple themes at all.
What do you think?
I like this, it has clean, classic lines. Has a good ‘magazine’ type feel. Is it customisable?
Could be me just being a bit slow but is there any way to change the date format for the blog posts? I can’t seem to edit at and its showing up as an US standard m/d/y instead of the UK d/m/y.
Whoa. It’s very nice. ^_^
Love it already
Thanks, always is good to have themes as amazing as this one ;)
Let me run over and check it out, right now. Looks very professional.
Nice Theme :) Unfortunately, my Photos with 640X480 resolution is reduced in a lower resolution, so that I cannot use this Theme for my blog.
kind of sick
It’s funny how I cannot access my dashboard. Please ask someone from WordPress to contact me. Thank you.
Looks really wonderful – thanks :D
I like it. The theme that I really like though is the Duotone. However I cant use it though it does not show all the photos that I have attached to each post and as my my blog is about interior design the photos are most important. It is such a great idea to have colour schemes that change and adapt to each post, please allow for all photos to be attached so that I can use it.
thank you so much … this new theme excellent, I’ve used in my blog and the results are very good
