Sometimes you want your blog to look a little more structured. To help with that, I’m happy to introduce to you today the Structure theme: a multi-column theme with featured images, an alternate dark color scheme, and customization options.
Structure highlights your latest post—from a featured category of your choice—by displaying the title in beautiful Georgia Italic and highlighting the featured image alongside a special front page widget area.
Did you see the Twitter and Facebook icons in the header? They’ll appear when you add your Twitter and Facebook URLs in Appearance→Theme Options.
And the ordered multi-column layout and high-contrast style of Structure is flush with style.
Structure switches to a two-column layout for posts and pages that ensures your carefully crafted content takes top priority for your readers.
I know you’ll like Structure’s drop-down menus and four footer widget areas but I think you’ll really love the customization options. With an alternate dark color scheme, custom header option, and custom background option, you can really make this theme your own. I’ve gone ahead and made a simple example of just that.
The Structure theme is available today in your WordPress.com dashboard and, for self-hosted WordPress.org users, from Organic Themes.
Update: If you need help setting the Featured Image for a post, read our tutorial on Featured Images.

You have got to be kidding me! I had this theme in my list of wanted themes. Go Theme Team!
Apr 27th at 6:03 pm

Apr 27th at 6:04 pm
Awesome theme… Looks like a theme marathon… one theme a day
Apr 27th at 6:11 pm
The quality of the themes that have been launched over the past few weeks have been insane. Thanks, WP Theme Team!

Getting very spoiled with all the new themes. Yeah….we like that! The more personal we can make our blogs is so important because of the number of bloggers out there. The new themes you are creating for us give us such a unique opportunity to be individuals in a sea of bloggers. Thank you. ~

Nice theme….Every week a new theme….Good work
Apr 27th at 6:28 pm
Great job you guys!!! i Personally love those themes which have background changing option:)
Apr 27th at 6:30 pm
I’m loving this one. I think I’ve finally found the new theme for my blog
Apr 27th at 6:38 pm
This one is nice, but I’d love to see a theme that lets me add Twitter, Facebook AND Google Buzz….
Apr 27th at 6:38 pm
Please replace “Get a free blog at WordPress.com” on the footer with “Blog at WordPress.com”
Apr 27th at 6:41 pm
It’s hard with you guys – a new theme everyday … my readers are somehwat lost in all those changes
Apr 27th at 6:48 pm
YeaH!!! This might be the best attempt for “structured” blogging since… i don’t know. I defentely appreciate the customisation options, because i always wanted almost ecactly that. Good work. Best wishes from the Strategic Command HQ, that our blog is for sure. *Chapeau!*
Apr 27th at 7:15 pm
WOW! Wonderful Gothic colors without weighing the theme down! That’s very difficult to do–I salute you.
Thanks for another great theme.
Apr 27th at 7:19 pm
Very nice theme. And yes, I agree with Mas Gaptek. There many new themes around.
This shows the WP kitchen is doing great work.
Apr 27th at 7:25 pm
Great work, I’ll try that one soon.
Apr 27th at 7:28 pm
Another one? Wow
This one looks really nice!
Apr 27th at 7:38 pm
Nice work guys, please make a special page for all new themes, so we can see what exactly has been updated.
Apr 27th at 7:51 pm
All I can say is WOW to the Theme Team. And thanks too.
This looks very close to the the stylish “white” theme of my dreams, but not sure about the small sized – gray font and small writing area on front page. If I could mix the black serif type face and font size of Inuit Types with this, I would be in heaven. (Sorry, I’m too technically challenged for CSS)…
I will definitely play with this one to see how it will work for me. Then I know I am going to be so torn between this and Inuit Types theme. You are making it really tough to choose between these gorgeous new themes!
Apr 27th at 8:07 pm
Great! This one is just perfect :=
Apr 27th at 8:50 pm
WP themes wizards on a roll! Another cool looking (and useful) design. Thank you!
Apr 27th at 8:54 pm
Very nice, but I prefer something else. More customizable as I said before.
Apr 27th at 9:00 pm
I don’t care for the white because it looks so much like other themes. The dark scheme looks organized and edgy. Another nice theme!
Apr 27th at 9:14 pm
Hey there, Theme Team!
Thanks very much for all the wonderful themes that you keep on introducing! You guys really rock! Keep them coming and maybe I’ll find the theme that works for me best.
Apr 27th at 9:17 pm
Guau! with the dark color is cool and elegant…Thanks!
Apr 27th at 9:18 pm
Apr 27th at 9:42 pm
oh, fabulous, thank you – this is exactly what i have been waiting for, custom headers + dropdowns. you’re awesome!
Apr 27th at 10:05 pm
I love your three column themes! thanks so much for this addition!
Apr 27th at 10:29 pm
I love this! Please please please please keep thinking of more themes, Theme Team!
Apr 27th at 10:47 pm
Again, works perfectly… when will you stop making me change my blog every other week!?
Cheers and keep up the good work!
Apr 27th at 11:01 pm
Great theme but I can’t seem to figure out how images show up on the home page. If anyone could help, thanks.
Apr 27th at 11:47 pm
This is awesome. You guys are just giving us some amazing themes lately. Thank you!
Apr 28th at 12:08 am
Would it be possible to have an option to show the category/date archives in the same style as the index? I love how the posts are displayed on the homepage, especially with the featured images, but the archive pages just strip all that style out.
Apr 28th at 12:29 am
A dream theme by a dream team.
Apr 28th at 12:46 am
I love the theme that I’m using now and think its the feel I want for my blog. But the Structured theme with the black background looks fantastic. Great for those looking for a more traditional website look.
Apr 28th at 1:31 am
Awesome…. few themes in a week. Keep improvising guys.
Apr 28th at 1:39 am
Nice! Thank you for keeping us supplied with new themes!
Apr 28th at 1:50 am
I really like the pick a category for front page feature. Thanks again.
Apr 28th at 1:53 am
Love it. Especially the featured post and social network link at top header. Good work guys
Apr 28th at 2:04 am
This theme is very nice!
Apr 28th at 2:08 am
Perfecto. I will try this one because I love it.
Apr 28th at 2:30 am
Wow ! another good theme…..!
Apr 28th at 2:42 am
Loving the new themes, guys. Thank you!
Apr 28th at 3:33 am
Although I appreciate all the free themes coming along I’m a little tired of the simple and want something a bit more substantial. iNove is still probably the most advance theme here and looking at some of the custom themes on organic’s website made my mind swim with possibilities. Is there anything like these in the pipeline? Would make a great service even greater if so!
Apr 28th at 3:47 am
I must say that I am not the greatest fan of dark colored themes but this one has me floored. And now I wonder whether it is time for me to chuck inuit types and experiment with the structured theme! Love the featured posts feature!
Great going, folks, wordpress.com is now getting cooler by the day!
