WordPress Theme: Fervens A, B & C

This is my first theme recommendation, and a WordPress theme just recently released by Smashing Magazine and Design Disease.  I sure hope the author submits it to the WordPress Theme Directory soon because I think this is a great find.  I found it really cool that the author has also included the PhotoShop Document (PSD) design files for modification.  An extra point as well for giving us an online demo of each theme version.

Fervens Theme – Available in 3 versions, each with a different sidebar position.  They all can be downloaded right here.

“Fervens is a 3 column theme that has a base idea of “freshness”. Summer is my favorite time of year as it always amazes us with a rainbow of sensation and colors, making this time of year the best of all.  The green of the plants and trees, the blue of the water….I love this time of year :)”

What I feel is so lovely about this theme is the Flickr plugin.  While pros can do this thru code-level, newbies would appreciate that it’s coming out-of-box.  Something that makes it more useful turn-key.

Main Features of the Theme

  • 3 columns of fixed width
  • widget-ready — two widget supporting sidebars 
  • the theme is using 3 plugins; 2 of them are integrated into functions.php, so there is no need to install them. These plugins are Gravatar, Recent Comments and FlickrRSS. You can use the last one to present your Flickr images in a Flickr Photostream (see the demo).

***a bit of trivia: The author of Fervens designs also developed the theme. :)

    I saw this on the smashing magazine web site a week ago. It is a unbelievable theme and I’m actually starting to customize it myself so that other people have more options. I just really do not like the colors that he mixed together so I decided to change it myself with the PSD file he gave us.

    It is a great theme, I am gonna use it on one of my blogs.
    P.S: I found it to break in IE, in 1920*1200 picels reesolution – so I commented on the blog – and let’s hope for the best.
