We are pleased to announce the January, 2009 Performancing Themes for WordPress release: Too Newsy. A three-column theme, Too Newsy uses minimal images and earthy colors, and a few touches of elegance, contributing to that old-world feel.
The theme features widget-ready sidebars, which can accommodate several different image dimensions (suitable for button and banner ads). The theme also supports the default CSS alignment and caption classes in WordPress 2.6 and above, and it is the first Performancing Theme to support new WordPress 2.7 features out of the box:
- Threaded and paginated comments
- Post classes
- Image captions and gallery classes
Another highlight of Too Newsy is the use of the sidebar for snippets of the latest posts in a pre-defined category (which is by default the “features” category). This can be useful for bloggers who wish to highlight certain posts, such that they are not pushed down too soon by newer ones. The theme also supports gravatars out of the box.
You can see a live preview of Too Newsy here. Usage notes and download links are here.
