In creating WP SMASHING I updated the functionality of the just-released WP CALENDAR by adding a theme options page in the admin menu. The plugin allows you to choose how the calendar functionality is displayed – if you choose to display it all.
WP SMASHING is completely widget-ready with 4 widget zones (3 column footer and a single column sidebar). You can choose to use the calendar on the index page or not, it’s up to you. Each day displays the titles of posts for that day. If there is more text than can fit in a calendar day you’ll see a custom scroll bar.
Also included in this theme is a simple contact form in the footer. This contact form allows people to send an email to the site administrator and makes sure the request is coming from your site and includes email validation. WP SMASHING utilizes the jGrowl plugin for jquery to offer up notices for people who have not filled out the contact form correctly. Head to the demo and play around with it to see what I mean. Or… you can remove this feature entirely.
There are a LOT of possibilities with this theme and it was great creating it for Smashing Magazine. I’ve been wanting to do a theme for them for a while now and it’s great to finally release one. So far I have tried to focus on making free themes that focus on a particular functionality. On March 1st I’ll be launching our Theme Club which will deliver a new WordPress theme every month and a bonus theme ever other month. I’m looking forward to making other exciting additions to the site as well, so check back every now and then and see what we’ve got going on.
