Cool Orange

2011

Cool Orange is a Sandbox child theme with a cool, muted blue vs. bright orange color scheme. It includes a Settings API based Theme Options page where blog owners can upload a logo to the Media Library. This method replaces the standard heading with a logo image, but leaves the actual h1 tag in place to be read by the search engines. No need to mess with CSS!

Features include:

  • CSS Customized headings, form fields and blockquotes
  • Complementary cool and warm color scheme
  • Pages drop down menu
  • Threaded comments
  • Theme options panel

Theme options page features:

  • Settings API based theme options with input validation- this ensures that the input that goes into the database is what it is supposed to be
  • The ability to customize logo width, height and padding for each side
  • A jQuery Reset button to quickly clear all text fields
  • The ability for a blog owner to upload files to the Media Library from within the theme options page

How to Install this theme

* If you are using this theme with the Theme Switcher plugin, please see the post About theme options pages and the Theme Switcher plugin.

* I just realized the folder structure for all of my themes is probably zipped incorrectly. The folder structure should be folder.zip > folder, instead it is folder_zip.zip > folder_zip > folder. Themes may not install correctly using WordPress’s theme Upload feature. Each theme’s folder structure has now been corrected.
