Blogging Pro’s Theme Released

#Source BloggingPro

Second Update: We have added a Widget Ready version and we are looking for support from users in getting it added to the service.

Updated: We have implemented some fixes in our theme, and so if you have already downloaded the theme, we ask that you at least download a new header.php (zip/phps) file.

The below zip files have also been fixed.

We have been getting some compliments on our design here at Blogging Pro, and a few e-mails asking where they can get our theme. I have been wanting us to release a WordPress theme for a while now, and so I present to you this design, Blogging Pro’s Theme as a free to download theme.This theme was created by Design Disease for Blogging Pro, we have made a few changes for public release though, including:

  • making the site information text, rather than an image
  • making the navigation text rather than images
  • removing one of the Adsense spots we have on our site
  • making sure the third column can be used for more than just advertising

We ask only that you keep the attribution links in the footer, and link to this post, rather than directly to the zip files, when spreading the word about this and other themes we will be providing on Blogging Pro.

Blogging Pro Theme

The Details
This three column theme is WordPress 2.1 ready and should work just fine in WordPress 2.0.x. It has been tested on a variety of browsers, but we can’t promise that there will be no problems.It comes in two versions, one with the big footer like Blogging Pro, that gives information on recent posts, recent comments and most commented stories, and one without the big footer, and thus no need for any plugins at all.For the plugin required version, we have included a separate zip file that contains the three plugins needed. All three are from the talented Nick Momrik of MtDewVirus and we always recommend you get the latest version from the plugin author.

Note: If you already have Nick’s Most Commented, Recent Comments and Recent Posts plugins, you will most likely not need the file.

    Hi, I’m using WP 3.0.1 under XAMPP. When I try to preview (or just view) the installed theme, I get:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in C:\xampp\htdocs\WP\wp-content\themes\bloggingpro-v2\header.php on line 44

    I opened the header.php file and converted all the <? to <?php. Now I get no error BUT the layout is not the one expected. I get to navigation bar and the search field is on the upper left corner. Moreover, the layout takes all the page width. Is there anyone who can help me?

  26. OK design. Its too dark blue i think.

  27. I am enjoying your
    writing style in this article. You’ve made it engaging, unique and totally
    impressive. You have some great views on this subject. Thank you for sharing
