WordPress Grid Focus

After much personal debate and the incident concerning the WP China Forums, I’ve decided to release the WordPress Grid Focus as a "theme". The decision was made after receiving a considerable number of emails requesting that a variant of the theme be made available for public use. I’m not expecting as much fanfare as the October Special theme which was based off of a pink October Breast Cancer Awareness month theme, but I do hope it may serve as a platform for others to build off of.

I stripped out a few personal bits, removed some ad placement blocks, and allowed the title and tagline to be edited from the WordPress administrative panel. Feel free to visit the project page to find the download as well as a few details concerning the theme.

  5. […] And then… I saw the Sandbox. It’s a great theme technically speaking with more compatibility for more usability standards than you can shake a stick at. I actually had been looking at it for a while but thought, “Man! Is that theme plain or what?”. I’d even played around with other themes that were plain as well such as a WordPress port of the Scribbish theme for Typo and Derek Punsalan’s Grid Focus theme. […]

    Massive thanks to you Derek. I love this WP theme. It’s made my introduction to CSS and WordPress so smooth. You’re doing a wonderful job. Thanks!

  13. Was looking for a magazine style theme when I found this and it fits perfectly. There are other free magazine and grid style themes that I considered too but I didn’t find them to be as clean as this one. Check my site for implementation, I have customized it a little but it is still a work in progress — what isn’t?

    Anyway, thanks. 🙂

    Hey, Derek!
    How can I make the “archives javascript” stay always dropped-down?
    Help please. Big thanks!

    Hi Derek,
    Can you tell us how to make a link for comments show up under each new post on the front page of our blog. This would also display if we had 1, 2,3+ current comments and provide a point of entry to view the post.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    I love the theme! Is there any possibility that you will update the sidebars to be widget-aware, however? I tried my hand at it but I’m not so good with the PHP yet.

    Hello, Derek. This GridV2 theme is available for public download?

    Hello,

    Great theme. I’m using it for a couple of months now, and it works great. I did some small modifications.

    Thanks!
