WordPress Themes for 02/04


LaunchPad WordPress Theme

The LaunchPad WordPress Theme is a unique theme for an easy and stylish way to park your site while it’s still under development. It’s a simple but effective theme perfect for what it’s supposed to do. It’s main feature is that it allows visitors to subscribe through RSS and e-mail.


  • Theme Options Page
  • Integration with FeedBurner
  • Professional design and typesetting
  • GPL Licensed—it’s free and you’re free to mess with it.

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.

  3. LanuchPad comes preinstalled with the dream host one click service. I’ve used it a few times and its good. Only wish they had a different colours to choose from though.
