Gadgetizer Theme Released

Gadgetizer is exactly what it sounds like it would be about. Gadgets. We wanted a simple theme that focused on the products themselves, so we have a big Flickr area in the footer section, as well as a mashup of images right below the featured post. As always, the front page has an easy to use feature section so you can easily put on display your most in-depth posts. You can even slot in a nice picture and a post excerpt to accompany the headline by editing the feature-image custom field and setting the category to Featured.

We kept it pretty similar in color scheme to the last design, with the colors white, blue, and green. Also we have included the psd files for the logo, robo girl, and for the gadgets snapshots.

Gadgetizer WordPress Theme

The theme is fully widgetized. A special feature of this theme as we use in many of our themes is the logo changer. You can use the default WordPress setting (blog name) or you can use your own logo. Upload your logo in the root folder of Gadgetizer theme and name it logo.png or you can use the logo.psd as a template. You will find the source in the root folder of the Tipz theme.

This theme also has a large footer bar that includes a links section, Flickr photostream, and latest comments section. Because some people might not like this option, we also included in the theme options the ability to have this section not show up.

The theme is using a few plugins, with some already integrated into functions.php, so there is no need to install them. The only plugin you need to install manually is FlickrRSS.  (FlickrRSS plugin is in the theme folder) (see the demo).

    I have a question:
    When you search for a keyword or even on the starting page you have that tv panels above the first post.

    How can I put that tv panel bar on other sites like contact and else? Because when – for example – klick on “contact” it is gone.

    Thanks for your work. I have a question: is there a way to have a main post, always appearing as first in the “home page”? I see in your demo page you just have one post on the home page, hiding all other posts.
    How you do that? It’s not explained here in the description, and it would be good to know.

  21. sandra says:

  23. billy says:

    Still working on this, I have another issue: why do Sticky Posts (the WP feature) not work on this theme? If you tricky sticking one post, nothing changes, the order remains the same. How can it be fixed?

  28. Eric says:

    It won’t work in WP3.0!!; I installed it two ways; first uploading zipfile; when I tried to activate it, it looked like it worked, but my website is just white… Same problem when I manual uploaded the folder gadgetizer/gadgetizer into my theme map:
    themes/gadgetizer/style.css (for example).

    Can you fix it or help me? I’m using a clean install…
