Working on a new theme called WordCult



So I have been really busy, and haven’t been able to put up a new post since I got back from WordCamp Denver.

Working on some clients site’s and also a WordPress theme!

I have finished about 80% of the theme which is based off my current theme located on my personal blog site: TheFrosty. TheFrosty is using version 0.1 of the theme, which has many faults and bugs. I have fixed many of them, and probably added a few others.

In version 0.2 I’ve added a new jQuery “featured posts” loader and the option for sticky posts. I have also fixed a lot of CSS errors, it should W3C comply :).

Also in the newer version I have tried to add more to the admin panel, in ways of options.

If you would like to download this theme and test it out before I release it to the community please let me know. I would love to get some feedback or ideas on what you’ve got to say. Just use the contact form or send me a message on Twitter.

Download it:

Download Version 0.3

Once you’ve got the theme..

Let me know what you think! Leave you comments and feedback. I am also trying to get a forum up on the site as well.

Update for 0.2:

I’ve updated my personal site: TheFrosty to the latest version of WordCult (0.2). I’ve already found some small bugs and CSS fixes that need to be taken care of. Also I don’t think that the Adsense display is working correctly.
If you’ve noticed any issues please contact me or leave a comment.


Update for 0.2.1:

The new version, 0.2.1 brings in some integration from Justin Tadlocks Widgets Reloaded plugin. It’s fully integrated into the theme. So you’ll notice some widgets disappear and be replaced by others. If you need to get them back Justin makes a plugin that will “release” the old widgets on your new theme install.


Update: 0.3

Get the newest version of WordCult, download Version 0.3 from this page.

      This site is based off Justin Tadlocks Theme Hybrid. He also has a child theme called Hybrid News which is a Magazine/News layout.

    Hi! I’ve just installed your WordCult-theme, and it looks great. But I’m having a problem with links in the footer. Both the Most Commented, and the Most Popular are giving out wrong links, I’m also having trouble getting the theme to work with a sideblog-plugin. There is something in the theme that is overriding my sideblog-plugin-settings, so instead of showing three posts in the sidebar, it shows every post in the category. And the links to the posts gets screwed up as well.

    • Austin Passy

      March 14, 2009 at 1:03 pm

      If you’ve downloaded 0.2.1 , there is a build in plugin feature that overrides the basic widgets. Use 0.2 instead, or go into the functions.php file and comment out line 111 & 112.

  11. Hjorthen

    March 15, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    Nah, can’t get it to work. Tried with 0.2, and tried removing the lines in functions.php, still the same problem. Random Posts-widget shows random post allright, but they all link to the same wrong post, sideblog-widget won’t let me adjust the number of posts to show in the sidebar, but shows every post in the caregory. Annoying.

      Hmm, that is weird. Those two are calling info from the DataBase, so it could have something to do with that. You may want to check out this new plugin from Justin Tadlock which is a WordPress Query posts widget. This should help, if you place this widget in those location’s you can control the amount of posts, order, randomization or any of the nearly 40 options inside the plugin.

    March 15, 2009 at 3:27 pm

    I’ll give it a go. There is also a problem with comments on older posts with comments not showing, and no possibility to add a new comment.Any ideas?

      Do you have the “allow comments” unchecked on those posts?

  13. Hjorthen

    March 16, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    Yeah, sorry…the problem with comments was concerning pages,The theme didn’t include comments on pages, I solved that one.

    Brilliant theme!!!

    Just one question! I notice that images are re-sized as thumbnails for the front page, based on what images are contained within each post.

    Is there a way of not duplicating this with posts that have just one image?

    e.g. Post has an image at the top say 480×180. This also appears on the frontpage, albeit smaller/thumbnail which is fine. But the smaller version of said image appears at the top of the post as well in the top-left corner, so two of the same image in the one post?

    This make any sense?!!

    • Austin

      April 2, 2009 at 1:01 pm

      I was confused for a second, but I think I under what you asking. On the single post, ONLY if there is more than one attachment show the “one” thumbnail on the left?

      • Dank

        April 2, 2009 at 2:20 pm

        A picture probably explains it better!

        The top most image is the thumbnail from the post.

        The lower most image is the post itself which contains just one image. Well, two now as it has a copy of the thumbnail in the top-left corner of the page? Just wonder if it was possible for this to be removed whilst showing on the front-page as thumbnail?

        • Austin

          April 2, 2009 at 4:38 pm

          Yes, it’s possible.
          On the single.php file, find line 46 and change this:


          to this: (comment out the php code)

          // wordcult_custom_image('image','single','','','alignleft','90');

          This will remove the single image from all of the single post pages.

          • Dank

            April 3, 2009 at 2:33 am

            Brilliant! That works a treat.

            Very last question if I may! It’s with regards to Adsense.

            In the theme configurations I’ve put my Google Ad Client ID (‘pub-numbers’) and then also the 468×60 Ad Slot ID but the ads aren’t appearing on the frontpage in the top right corner? Don’t know if I’m missing something?

            Thanks for your help!

          • Dank

            April 3, 2009 at 2:35 am

            Sorted it.

            Thanks very much for your help!

    Now using the theme and have made only a couple of alterations. But I think I’ve found a bizarre ‘bug’ which I can’t fathom out to fix!

    If you look at the following page: authors names appear fine and upon hovering-over them their respective URLs appear (if present).

    However, if I’m logged into my WordPress admin page, these don’t appear? The authors names are invisible until I hover over them. As soon as I log out and go back to the page they’re back again? Tried it in FireFox and Opera and the same happens?

      Just another thing I’ve noticed to hopefully assist in any future releases of this theme: Internet Explorer throws up an ‘Error on Page’, whereas Firefox, Opera and Chrome don’t.

      Details from my webpage:

      Webpage error details

      User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)

      Message: Object doesn’t support this property or method
      Line: 107
      Char: 2
      Code: 0

      Trying to figure out how to fix it, but not coming up trumps (yet!). Love the theme still!

    Great looking theme! I especially like the footer. Very easy to read and does not cause the usual mess you see on wp themes. I downloaded it and will test it out. Is it free to use on non-commercial blogs?

The release of Galleria, a gallery child theme of Hybrid

As the WordPress community grows, so does the amount of available themes. Galleria is a gallery-style child theme for WordPress built on the Hybird theme framework. Originally, this theme was created by Chirs Wallace for the Thematic theme framework and released at Smashing Magazine.



So I am excited to announce another theme release from WPCult and Frosty Web Designs. A few days back, I came across this post at Smashing Magazine.

Just recently we asked you to let us know what theme you would like us to release next. Among numerous comments we found many request for a gallery-theme that could be particularly useful for portfolios and showcases. At the very same time Christopher Wallace has been designing an advanced gallery-WordPress-theme for the design community and Smashing Magazine’s audience. And today finally we are proud to release it – for free, of course.

Well, I liked this theme, and while I am a big fan of the Thematic theme, I know there are many out there who love Hybrid. Hybrid is Justin Tadlocks theme framework, which can be downloaded for free at

Just an FYI, this site is running hybrid as a parent theme. 🙂


I contacted Chris and told him of this theme port I would be doing. After a few days of modifications, bug fixes, and styling, the theme is ready for public release.

While Galleria shares a few qualities with his sibling, the differences are notable in the style, color, and layout throughout the theme, including the theme options.

More info

For more info and documentation, refer to the readme.html file included in the download or visit the Galleria theme page.

Some features

  • dynamic image re-size on a single page.
  • WordPress 2.7 compatible
  • Built on the Hybrid framework
  • jQuery hover effects
  • jQuery scrolling effects.
  • ‘Save to Delicious’ link
  • ‘Tweet This’ link
  • Flexible footer widget area

The new design in progress



Okay, so by now you may notice something. You may be thinking “the site looks a lot different”, and you are correct. Over the past few weeks I’ve decided that the site needed a different flare and feel. While many and most site’s these days are popping up with featured posts, and jQuery sliders, I wanted to steer away from that and go old school. While I had some trouble’s activating the theme today which didn’t allow me to fully finish the theme, 99% of it is done.

The site is still build on the powerful Hybrid theme framework. Enjoy.
