WordPress Theme: Inove

December 2nd, 2008

As mentioned in my previous post, I upgraded wordpress and am using the Inove theme. I chose it because it looks clean and has basic functionality (most wordpress themes do not). When I say clean, I mean I like the use of black, white, and grey colors, I like the fonts, I like having posts be black on white with the background of the page being grey (anything but white, helps focus attention to the posts). I also like the simple search box in the header, I like the small simple icons like green dots for lists, calendar icon, categories icon, tags icon, comments icon, etc. I like how how tables are done, pre format is done, and a few other things.  However, it is not perfect for me.  So …

Things I changed included

  1. Fixing bug where tag icon appears even if a post has no tag
  2. Moving categories and tags to the top of posts – I prefer having all the meta information in one place.
  3. Moving RSS code from top of sidebar.php to bottom
  4. Removing non-widget code from sidebar.php – If a widget is not chosen for N, S, E, W, defaults are shown like archives and categories.  I don’t want 2 categories, as esserd said. If I want something, I will use widgets.
  5. Tweaked styles.css to add padding to bottom of lists (.post .content ul,   .post .content ol)
  6. Changed header on search results and archive (tags, categories) from 2 lines to 1 line.

Overall great theme.  Thanks mg12!!!  Also, check inove forum for other issues.
UPDATE: You can find my changes in inove-1.0.5.diff.tgz, preview the readme or diff.

    Rudy,

    I updated the blog above with a link to the changes I made. Note that my changes were against inove version 1.0.5 from november 2008, so it will be a bit trickier to make the changes to newer versions of inove.

    Cheers,
    Chad

    Hello!
    I really love iNove theme and it’s really awesome. I used it for my blog http://dotnetfollower.com. But the main problem for me was that iNove theme initially had a much wider sidebar than I needed. I’ve reduced the width of sidebar and described it in my article – Get the smaller sidebar of iNove theme. Or you can download appropriate modified files from here – Modified iNove Theme.
    Thanks!
