I’m happy to present to you, “Motion,” a dashing new theme inspired by movement and film. Bursting with style and options, Motion is a clean, colorful, and charismatic new theme.
Motion combines color and clean lines to give your content character without hindering consumption. Aside from great design, the theme has some pretty interesting features. The menu shows both categories and pages, in separate locations, allowing your visitors to choose how they’d like to navigate your site.
There is also a really nice widget area that acts a little bit different than most other widget areas. It’s the “header” widget area – you can use it for intro text, a link to your RSS feed, or anything you want your users to see right away.
Last, but definitely not least, is the footer. It’s big, clean, and widgetized. By default you have Links, Pages, and Archives – but it’s all up to you, customize the footer however you’d like.
Check out Motion on your own WordPress.com blog! Just login and visit Appearance -> Themes
I love the teal colors, and the transparency!
Love the way it looks!
Where’s the ocean?
/yet another awful joke.
It is really beautiful – it has my favourite colours :)
gonna check it out now
This one’s certainly versatile. Spiffy!
Yes, I too would want to know if the categories could be disabled.
I like the looks of this one Noel. I’ll try it out. Thanks :)
Looks pretty sweet. I’ll have to try it out on one of my own blogs. It certainly is pretty colorful. I hope to see extra widgetized areas in future themes as well.
Looks really nice!! Good one, thanks!
i love it!!! with new themes coming every month, who would leave WordPress now?
thank you so much!
pretty! its a toss up between my current on and this one now.
Wow … this is definitely the fanciest theme on WP.com right now. ’10 has been a great year for WP.com themes so far; I can’t wait to see what else you come up with!
It’s beautiful, but I’ve only recently changed by theme, and just settled into it. Maybe when I’m ready for a change in the future I’ll pick this one, though I’m very attached to having a custom header. If ‘Motion’ had one it would be a dream theme for me…
i am using it…i hope my readers won’t have a problem with the font
It’s great to see new themes, but could we have some more with custom headers please? It’s the easiest way by far to make a theme “yours”…but great work to all of you. Love WordPress!
Sounds great and exciting! Will surely check it out! :)
Categories in nav bar, great!
That’s hella sexy…
wow! this looks so great!
Cool, I would like to try this.
it looks great but my content doesn’t fit this theme but still this a great theme for anyone + i like the features it has but for right now my current theme i’ll use for now and keep up the good work word press, you guys impress me with whatever you release :)
+1 to memsaab. I too would like more customisable themes. This new one is beautiful but I’ll have to pass on it due to it not fitting the tone of my content. Great addition to the library, though.
Does it have a custom header option, as a good graphics designer could match the theme quite easily.
Brilliant looking and exceptionally functional as well, probably one of THE best looking themes on .com I have a friend who does photography that would definitely be interested in this.
But as mentioned, I hope that there’s a custom header option so you can blend in a logo or some image art to suit.
I like it. Might well change from Freshy after nearly a year as I’ve been looking for a way to improve, though I’ve been intending to migrate to m .com using wordpress.org
Only problems/questions: In the preview, it doesn’t seem to handle the Twitter widget very well, it’s very bulky and skips alot of lines because of links etc. Can’t the Twitter widget be tightened up slightly to present the tweets clearly? Secondly, yes, the Custom Header is a serious addition to an theme so it’s dissapointing that this one means you’re stuck with this odd concentric circle logo. Can you use HTML to include images in the “header widget”?
Thank you! Thank you for COLORS! And what beautiful colors they are. I’ve been hoping and waiting for a long time for some great colored (and glassy) themes like this. Hugs. :)
a very good theme, clean cool looks. But i would need something a bit wider. But lets wait, if wordpress.com does not come up with some wide theme like which i am using, i would make some formatting adjustments in my blog and add the new themes wordpress.com is launching, because they are too good to leave, only for the sake of formatting in some posts.
very nice :) i loved it :)
Hola! …Nice & Cool Theme!
This is really cool…
You guys are really doing a good job.
That’s why I love wordpress
it’s great design different widget.I like it. Good One!
wow… that’s the greatest motion I’ve ever seen. How do I get motion in my blog?
wowza! now thats nice. wish i could use for my business blog-but anyway. very nice.
but the number of comments doesn’t appear on the first page. you have to click the article to see
Thanks for coming up with 2 new themes within a month!!
I would love to see another 3 column theme with a customizable header. Is there one in the works?
Thanks WordPress!! Flora
wow.. another great theme! thanks!
i like the new theme. i am going to definitely use this one. cheers.
wow! great theme.. and i do agree with what memsaab said. we need more with more custom headers! :)
This is a really good one. I’m gonna have to try it out. Thanks :-)
Wow this is beautiful thanks Noel love the colors so vibrant
Love the new theme. Trying it out.
This is a great theme! Good job!
I’ll go ahead and say it again – keep the new themes comin’!
Love em! :)
Themes with custom headers and space for “taglines” under the header would be great!
While you’re at it…how about a widget that allows readers to click and send a message to the blog owner without it having to be specifically linked to a comment?
good theme, so, i am happy.
OMG that’s what I’ve dreamt about.
Thanx a lot!
This is wonderful. Love it and activated it immediately. You guys are on fire! Thanks a lot.
Second the idea of the possibility to turn off the categories on the top. But can definitely live with that of course.
Looks awesome, let me try
The entire sidebar is missing when I open another page except homepage and it only leaving a bottom widget. But thanks anyway, I’m switching from Vigilance to this theme now.
I just applied it to my web site.
I like that….motion by name and motion by nature, looks like the ocean!
Delicious! My favorite color!
wow 2 themes in one month! =D
Great colors and easy to use set up for the readers. I like the way photos are set and displayed and how useful is the footer.
Nice theme, but… why do so few themes support the drop-down pages menu? I’d like to change my theme from iNove to Motion, but I have too many nested pages. What a pity. :(
THIS IS SO GREAT! It has a total of 5 areas where I can place my blog content. thanks!!!
amazing theme…good work.
i will try this theme…thank you for WordPress
the theme is absolutely tantalizing especially category bar..would appreciate if “COMMENTS” option is also made available along side “Read More” tab.
Very interesting and attractive.
I like this one and I am using it for now! Just keep em coming WordPress.com that’s all I say! You need to in order to compete with Blogger etc.
great theme btw
I love this one. But i have something to say :D hope you don’t mind :D
If it had custom header it would have been great! Love this colour!
Keep up the good work!
Cool!! Thanks a lot!!
Tempting… Very tempting…
Wow.. this theme is awesome, I LOVE the colors.. I don’t like the categories on top, though.. but hey, can’t get everything you want.. and custom headers, yes, that’d be great too.. but for the next few weeks, this is definitely my favorite theme. thanks so much!
Wow! It’s brilliant!
why oh why it is not flexible :( I would use it immediately. great theme anyway
It’s the best I’ve ever seen here.
Really, really good!
:) :) :)
Nice ! I like it…
Wonderful. I love this new theme. Activated it just now. :D
The only problem i see is that under this theme, the tweets displayed on my twitter widget are longer than they actually are. hashtags are displayed one below the other. For example, if I tweet “Hey, I just Love WordPress! #blogging #Wordpress #favourite ” then this tweet is shown on the widget as follows:
“Hey, I just Love WordPress!
Thats the only problem and I hope it can be solved. Otherwise, everything else about this theme is fantastic! :)
Really nice looking! I’m definitely considering it!
I think the side bar is great, because it is wide and has a lot of room. It makes the widgets well spaced and easy to read. The extra widget option at the top is also clever.
Great design. Always love your creation…by the way, can one change the theme colour accordingly?
little dark, but overall great.
one brand word for it – ‘Smashing’
hmm nice…. i like its colour match…
I love this new theme! Great color, great features…
WordPress is an everyday-christmas platform and I love it! :p
Really nice, although I wish I could swap the pages / categories with each other and it isn’t playing nice with the twitter widget and links. Otherwise, very good looking :)
Nice. The visuals are great and I like the feature richness. Though it wouldn’t have hurt with some theme options. Like maybe I don’t want category navigation (I don’t)?
Looks coool…like I could float away!
Is there a way to control/bypass the categories menu at the top ‘cos i have many categories and it takes up a lot of the space at the top.
Apart from that, i love this theme! Thanks!! :-D
such a nice theme…
This is beautiful! It’s clean and really reflects the film concept well. Lovely to see a more colourful theme too. Thanks for this!
hmmm. i’m happy that the team has been releasing a lot of new themes lately. i love wordpress so much.
