Illacrimo WordPress Theme Release

#Source: LifeSpy

Update: And we are back with Illacrimo. Our intrepid designer just wasn’t happy enough with the way things looked, and had to go back and make it perfect.

I didn’t know that it wasn’t already, but then again, that’s why I am not a designer.


We have a great three column theme for you called Illacrimo. Created by Design Disease, and released here on LifeSpy. It is the third free theme that Bloggy Network has released. Illacrimo has a strong color set, that should appeal to many, and works well with the plugins we have included in the download file, or without.

InSense WordPress Theme

Supporting plugins like:

  • Gravatar
  • FlickrRSS
  • Pagenavi

Make sure you put them in the right place and activate them if you want the full Illacrimo experience.

This theme, like all themes released by Bloggy Network are released under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License.

Currently, you can check out a live version at Design Disease.

Note: We have released a Widget ready version of the popular Illacrimo theme which you can find on a new post here on LifeSpy.

    Sorry, seems that this stripped out the HTML in my post. Ok, so just before the end “body” tag in footer.php, add this line:

    <? php wp_footer(); ?>

    and in case that doesn’t display properly, here it is:

    ?php wp_footer(); ?

    (make sure to put the less than sign and greater than sign at the front and end respectively)

    Thank you very much for the theme. I have no problems with it all. I have a question. Is there any way to move the first widget column (middle column) down so it doesn’t block the buttons on the main menu bar? I’ve played with the .php files and cant seem to get it to work. Any help is greatly appreciate and again I love the theme! Thank you

    HI There,
    I am in the process of setting up this great theme on one of our sites here at Uni. I was wondering if there is a way to get a whole page? i.e. remove searchbar and rss column? Only real reason is to display google search results in the window.

    after updating WordPress to verison 2.8.2 I’m now missing my footer ;-) Any ideas to solve this problem?

    Cheers, Daniel

  6. Paul says:

    If anyone else is getting the headers already sent error, here is the solution.
    In wp-content/themes/illacrimo/functions on the lines 22 to 24 there is this code:



    That code is useless and if you remove it, the error goes away. The problem appears to be the blank line between the php end and php start codes. They are useless here because it’s all PHP and there is no HTML or anything between the php-end and php-start codes.

  7. random guy says:

    I suggest removing the end and start PHP tags in the middle of functions.php thus making it a single block of PHP (leaving in the comment section). This fixes a number of “headers sent” errors as all functions are registered in the same PHP execution instead of sequential PHP executions.

    This theme is definitely a blast from the past.

    No Sidebars Defined

    The theme you are currently using isn’t widget-aware, meaning that it has no sidebars that you are able to change. For information on making your theme widget-aware

    no widgets in widget ready version???????????

    hi,thank you for making great theme for WP.I really like it.
    by the way,I have a problem.I can not display category as thee.child categories are displayed as tree,but grandchild categories are not displayed as tree like DEMO.

    I download files and upload my server directly and did not edit any files.can you help me or give me some advice?

    thank website is

  18. Solved problem with visual “current” location highlighted TAB not showing up for other pages. Blog tab stays highlighted for any instance (whenever a single post is being viewed, a category, or an article).

    Required hand coding the Menu structure, but since this is not something that normally changes very often on most peoples websites, it shouldn’t be a major issue.

    The demo code shown below creates a Menu structure from left to right: Home, Blog, About (any number of pages may be inserted up to the limit of available navigation bar space in the header, order is dictated by the position in the menu code).

    Copy and Paste this code in place of the existing Menu code at the end of the theme’s Header.

    <a href="/">Home

    <a href="/blog">Blog

    <a href="/about">About

  19. Opps!
    The code didn’t display properly on my last post, lets try it again:

    <a href="/”>Home

    <a href="/blog”>Blog

    <a href="/about”>About

  20. Still Nothing?!?!

    One more time:

    <a href="/”>Home

    <a href="/blog”>Blog

    <a href="/about”>About
