Celebrific – Gossip City – WordPress Theme Release

Yes we did it after the so many requests.

The Gossip City theme is ready for download.



Gossip City is a theme for WordPress created by Design Disease. The theme was created based on what people would want to see from a gossip blog.

GossipCity WordPress Theme

Once you’ve downloaded the theme and extracted the files, upload the folder to your wp-content/themes/ directory. Next, go to the ‘˜Presentation’ area in your WordPress administration panel and activate the theme.

I’ve included the following plugins with the theme (in the plugins folder):

  1. flickrrss
  2. wp_gravatar

Just upload everything in the plugins folder to your wp-content/plugins/ folder and activate the plugins from the ‘˜Plugins’ page in your administration panel. The plugins are customised to match Gossip City theme.

By default, the theme displays your Web site’s title and description in the header. If you want to replace that with your logo, it’s easy to do. If you look at the Logo Instructions.txt you will see how easy it is to change the logo. PSD Source for the logo is also included.

This theme, like all themes released by Bloggy Network are released under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License. Please keep the credit and the links from the footer.

The theme is Widget Ready.

  11. Hi there. Sorry for digging up this old post…but I’m implement this theme on a new site (and I like it very much!), but the problem I’m having is that when individual pages are viewed in IE, the titles appear to be slightly cut off at the top. I’m sure there is a quick fix but I’m a bit of a noob when it comes to coding. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    Hey guys! Awesome theme. My wife and I are using it to chronicle our experiences with our first child. :) Anyways, My sister has been complaining that she’s unable to post comments. I’ve had her to send me screenshots. She has no comment box (Name and logout link DO appear) in Firefox and everything but the “Post Your Comment” button in Explorer. I’m not sure if this is a theme issue, but does anyone have any ideas? I’m tapped out. I can’t duplicate the problem on my end.

    Can anyone pls help? How can I paginate or break the comments? I tried it enabling the break comments on discussion but I dont see any changes. Worst If I add plug ins for break comments, it totally change the comment area layout and its ugly.

    What to do?


  43. @Bob if you understand about html, you can go to the html codes of the template. look for the Google ad codes within the template html codes and delete them. it looks like this

    google_ad_client = "pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
    google_ad_host = "pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
    google_ad_slot = "xxxxxx";
    google_ad_width = 336;
    google_ad_height = 280;
    <script type="text/javascript"
