The Hellbiscuit Theme is Here!

October 2nd
POSTED or WRITTEN BY GUMBALL in BODY, RANDOM MADNESS, SIGHTS & SOUNDS, SKID MARKS, VANITY

That’s right. It’s been a long time coming, but the theme is ready and free for you all to use. Want to see it? Well, you’re looking at it! (pretty much).

There has been some updates to the theme since it’s been initially built. Actually, MANY updates to clean it up, stream line it and actually make it better that the site here now. Want to give it a test drive?

TAKE ME TO THE HELLBISCUIT DEMO!

Why is it called “Gumball Special?” Well… why not?! I made it for ya, I can name the sucker!

It sports Gravatar, an awesome layout, custom image field thingies and well, just looks plain ‘ol awesome.

Download it here.

Want some extras? You can have all the psd files I used from day one of HB til now.

There you have it. Keep the footer text links at the very least. If you dig the logos, keep them too! Just link back here somehow. There’s a couple readme files in there to help you out. If you get stuck, go to my contact form (I’m giving myself away here) and ask me what’s up. Just make sure you tell me it’s regarding the HELLBISCUIT theme.

Enjoy! If you don’t… go away!

    Hey. Great work :)

    Michelle, S William Shaw… get the css-file from the demo page. Not from within this page.

    I did. I inserted it into the theme’s directory, and my site looks as follows:

    Immediately fell in love with the design, but eventually grew disappointed once I realized it isn’t widgetized.

    Nice theme, but the comments look horrible, dont you think? Everything is white. My eyes are hurt of so much white. At least grey but not so much white. How about separating trackbacks and the comments?

    I switched over to your theme but then noticed that my WordPress Stats plugin stopped updating itself. Is anyone else having this issue?

    works in wp 2.3? or just 2.7 and above?

    Evan,
    This design rocks! Please make a Blogger version. Some other guy just came out with one, but it has so many alignment problems, and it is not the same.

    Hi SW and everyone, all the alignment problems are solved now and you can download the Blogger version from the following link!

    How do you add images of single posts to the homepage

    I love this. I have been messing with loads of themes that end up ugly and disappointing. I figured this to happen as well, when I saw it doesn’t use widgets… then I realized, you don’t need widgets with so many great options. I’m really enjoying learning as I use this theme! Thank you Evan!

  26. On April 14th, 2009 at 1:29 pm, Ashley Sue Allen said...

    Big problem though… I can’t get images to upload to the frontpage. And I’ve done the reading. Tried different things. Yet it’s blank space. Can’t seem to figure this out. Please help?!

    great theme, fantastic understanding of color (as in density of negative and positive space).
    if this theme shows anything, it shows that web design should be made by graphic designer who understand the relation between type, layout, and imagery.
    I would be willing to donate if you ask me to, again thank you so much, keep up the good work.

    Hey guys,
    For everyone asking about the images in the theme, here is a guide explaining what Custom Fields are: http://bit.ly/6ddhSV

    Any images you want to use in the custom field, you need to save in the wp-content/themes/gumball-special/post-images folder.

    Then on each post, you need to use the Custom Field, using the key ‘thumbnail’ and enter the image name of the image which is in the post-images folder.

    Hope it helps!

    Cheers,
    Rach. :)

    Hello,

    I have used this template and modified it for my site. I was thinking of putting a shadow in the margins on both the left and right so the central container looks elevated.

    Would I need to add a new div tag for the outside shadow to one of the PHP files? If so which one? Would I then add that some code to the CSS to get it to look right?

    Good weblog! I genuinely really like how it’s straightforward on my eyes and in addition the details are effectively penned. I’m wondering how I might be notified whenever a brand new article has been made. I’ve subscribed for your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!
