I decided to contribute to the WordPress Repository and wanted to create a theme that was based on html5 and CSS3. I also wanted to give the theme a name that reflected its purpose. The Wordsmith Anvil is a good theme for people wanting to write about and market their books, articles or other writings. So, it is great for hammering out words and forging ahead with custom templates and custom fields for selling compilations of those words. Wordsmith Anvil bellows for more. The fact is that this theme is well suited for many other uses as well. This theme includes an admin options panel to administer several custom options. Support for this theme can be found here. FAQs are here. If you would like to pony up some funds to have me the customize the theme for you, then contact me. Initially, there were more options built into this theme. However, progressing through the rigorous review process and several reviewers, some of the options were removed from the theme. Actually, some of the options would be better to implement via a plug-in; because they dealt more with functionality than with display and display logic.
Theme options include:
- Remove those pesky auto p tags
- Custom Logo options
- Custom Header Backgrounds
- Custom Background Options
- Custom Menus
- Five Widget Areas
- Tagline Display Option
- RSS and Social Network linking options
- Feedburner Subscribe Options
- External Feed Display Option
- Coupon or Special Text Display Box Options
- Footer Links Display Options
- Copyright Text Display Option
The current version can be downloaded from the WordPress Repository. At the time of this post, the current version available for download is 1.6.2. There was a minor display issue which only affected certain versions of Internet Explorer. This was corrected in version 1.6.3. If you have downloaded 1.6.2 and are wondering how to correct the display issue, you can find the solution here.
If you have a comment on this post, feel free to leave one here. If you have questions about the theme, or would like to have the theme customized for you, then use the links above. This post was not intended to be a Q & A Forum, or support page for the theme. 🙂 … However, I may not have made that clear on the theme options page until version 1.6.8. So, because of that, there are a number of Q & A and support related comments found here. For future use, to centralize the support-related threads for the Wordsmith Anvil theme, please use the Feedback & Support Forum Page on the theme’s demo site.
