New Theme: Greyzed

Today’s new theme is dirty and grungy-looking—but that’s just what makes it so good! Let’s take a look at Greyzed.

The Greyzed Theme

While Greyzed might look rough it’s been carefully designed and it isn’t short on features. Starting at the top, it has a really sharp drop-down menu ready for our new menus feature. Visit Appearance → Menus and you can order the links here any way you like.

Customizable Drop Down Menus

The distinctive Greyzed design elements are repeated throughout your blog and finish off nicely at the bottom of each page with an optional extra-large widgetized footer in the same tough style. Visit Appearance → Widgets and add any Widget to Footer Left, Footer Middle, or Footer Right, to create your own unique footer.

Footer Widgets in Greyzed

Greyzed is available today in your WordPress.com dashboard under Appearance → Themes and, for WordPress.org users, in the WordPress.org themes directory.

    Hey 😀 I left a comment here earlier about how this was just the theme I’ve been wanting. So guess what? I used it! I’ve changed the layout of one of my blogs to this! It looks amazing!

    I am with Ruthie, it seems all these themes are so hard lined. Not soft or flowing like. Mix things up a bit please. Blogger seems to have all the fun…

    Can you do more things like scrapbooks effects? I like the grunge but maybe spice it up a tad.

    Of all the new themes, I like this one the most. But can I change any of the background or get a custom header. I loves my custom headers so I do, and that’s the only thing from stopping me adopting this theme right this minute. I’ll sleep on it before I switch, but this Greyzed is fabulous with or without me!

    I must admit Greyzed is the best theme that WP team have designed so far but it would have been even better if we had the option to change the sidebar from left to right and about to change the 3 main colours (black, red, white) to our own choice. Nonetheless, it is still the best theme I have come across – I am looking for forward for new ones in the future.

    P.s. How about revamping the older ones to support the new theme features (like Menus)? Some of the older ones are good but can do with some tweak

    Seriously nice design. The menus across the top and down the right look like professional Web design that small businesses or bands, say, or a true-crime author would otherwise pay a lot for. The spacing, the use of color — really all looks very high-end. Only weak point is the notepaper-style body — to me it looks more clip-art than the rest of the design.

    Really enticed by this — if it fit the tone of my blog, I would switch to it in a heartbeat. Mine’s kind of, I dunno, cozy. But this is cool. Yay!

    I LOVE the look of this one!! Finally something that is more “hard core” in design. The only thing that I would LOVE to see, is a different “paragraph” font. Something that resembles a “handwritten” look. Something along the lines of what you get with “Bradley Hand (TC) or Monotype Corsiva”, if you have MS Word on your system. I think the contrast between the “hard line look” and the “softness” of either of those would REALLY spark this theme in a great direction and one I would be installing IMMEDIATLY!

    Good Job…its almost perfect for what I have been looking for!

    The splashes of red help. I’m currently using a classic theme called “Silver is the New Black.” The grey gets old after a while, and all my widget text posts are stylized to come up in capital letters only, so it looks like an angry shout. I’d change to something like this — or any of the recent new themes — if I knew I could keep my extremely wide margin. Otherwise I’d have to reformat all my pictures and graphics. The other problem is that “Silver is the New Black” has a default typeface that is too small to read, so I have manually had to change every single post to big type and bold face, and depending on the CSS of a new blog, might suddenly find my typeface to be HUGE.

    But I agree with everyone else, the new themes in the last month or so have been extremely progressive and are appreciated by the large number of bloggers who have switched over to them.
