Holiday WordPress: A Free WordPress Theme

Dec 14 2008 by Jacob Gube | 25 Comments

Tis’ the season to be jolly with Chris Wallace’s new Holiday WordPress theme, jointly released by Designer&Developer and Six Revisions.

Holiday WordPress: Screen shot.

Holiday WordPress is a flexible, professional theme with a two-column layout and a "featured" area for the latest story. Once the holiday is done – don’t fret – the design allows you to easily change the page elements (such as the background) for a less season-specific theme.

Holiday WordPress is released under the open source GNU General Public License.

Some features

A "featured" area that places your current stories at the top of the page.

Featured area

See-through: the content area let’s you slightly see the background, so you can experiment with different backgrounds to get the effect that you’d like.

See-through preview.

Compatible with WordPress 2.7+.

A widgetized sidebar for easy customization.

I really like this although I think I’d customise it a bit (background would be first to go).

Great theme thanks for sharing!

@Daisy: That’s what the intention is, to promote you to switch the background to something when the time comes around. What’s cool is that the body has an opacity to it, so that your background will show through a bit.

Great theme – but can the Featured area picture change automatically when the post changes?

I’m having trouble figuring out how to change the ‘featured’ image on a per-post update. I want to be able to attach an image to each post that it’d use for the ‘featured post’ section, and appear on the single post page.

I have figured a lot of other details out though! I really like the theme.

Figured out the featured details, but now for some reason my sidebar is only in the right place on the main page, but on the single and page templates it’s showing up at the bottom of the post.
