Grid

Grid is a theme I started working on for my own site and decided to make it available as a free theme.  I wanted a dark theme this time around, and I wanted to play with the idea of having a grid background like Justin Tadlock‘s site and the optional grid.png background image you get when you’re working in the blueprintCSS framework.  I also wanted to play around with layering text on top of itself in a way that partially obscures the content.  As such, this theme isn’t for everyone, but I’m pretty ecstatic about it.  Grid uses a variable-width layout, so it’s always taking up the full screen no matter what resolution you are using.  It has support for Asides, 4 widget areas in the footer and one in the sidebar, optional left/right sidebar and full posts/post excerpts on the blog page, and built-in Twitter hovercards.

AP Blueprint is a theme framework we initially built a year ago.  Since then, we’ve used it as the foundation of all of our themes, be it for client work or Museum Themes.  But after a while, we started to add things to themes that weren’t in the framework.  Over time, this got to be more and more common, so we decided it was time to update the framework.

The most recent version includes @Twitter hovercards, better styling for post comments, a few additions to the sharing links under posts, the updated Tweet This link from Twitter and the new Tweet This button, widgetized footer, WordPress 3.0 menus, and a theme options page for social networking links, Twitter controls, and sidebar controls.

Interested in contributing to, or building on top of AP-Blueprint?  We’ve also set up a repository on GitHub.
