Structure WordPress Theme
The Structure WordPress theme is a Premium News/Magazine theme with two different layout styles to choose from. It’s got the News theme-type environment, but not too overwhelming, as most News themes I’ve come across.
- A custom home page to look like a news or magazine site.
- There’s an optional normal blog layout for the home page.
- Set on a 300px, 3-grid layout that lets you move various content blocks around the page. Switch home.php and sidebar.php elements for a custom look.
- Sidebar tabbed and home page category posts navigation through the use of a custom jQuery script (jQuery is packaged with the theme).
- Embed YouTube, Google Video, and Metacafe videos easily with Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict.
- Supports the Flickr RSS plugin.
- Related Posts plugin support.
- Also, plugin support for Popularity Contest by Alex King.
- WordPress 2.3 tag-ready, but backwards-compatible with previous versions of WordPress with a single modification.
There are custom templates for each type of WordPress page, such as category.php, archive.php, and search.php.
- Ability to change sidebar for different pages of the site.
- Placeholders for ads. Good sizes for 125×125px ads.
- Widget-ready sidebar, but I suggest not using widgets because this theme wasn’t designed for them.
