wordpress theme for wordpress 1.5: NAN

NAN 1.5 is completely compatible with wordpress 2.0! the new version (NAN 2.0, dec 24, 2005) merely includes a thumbnail image for the new presentation area in wordpress

Note that I have discontinued the yellow version of the NAN theme, as it was not very popular; in fact, although it was the original color, even I stopped using it ;)

lots of bug fixes on latest version, updated 6 april 2005!

Well it’s the 2nd birthday for the nathaniel and the non-aggressive blog, and I thought I’d give a little gift to my dedicated readers (if I have any of those).

The new, improved and free NAN theme! New! also check out my latest theme: stuttering

That’s right! Now you, too can make a blog that looks just like (er, something like) this. It’s download-able, with easy instructions on how to insert your own image or menu up top (instead of my own flash menu), and in two colors: the original yellow (as displayed here), and white. It looks good on all browsers (i know of), and all you need is WordPress 1.5 installed, and access to your server.

The white looks just like this blog, but if you want images, try something like this:

click for larger image

Of course, you could go in and change colors yourself, and adapt the stylesheet as you see fit, but I wanted to make this REALLY easy for non-coders, too. All these folks really need to do is make an image to overwrite the default banner (up top – put the name of your blog in it), then plop the whole NAN folder into your own themes folder (located in wp-content), and turn it on.

Advanced coders: the top graphic is an include, so if you want a menu like mine, all you have to do is open up one php file and paste in a working menu, as you see fit!

Instructions are included in the download (~30kb each). Be sure your ftp application is set to “text” or “ascii” or “automatic” when you upload! Otherwise, it gets all weird looking in the admin panel….

Enjoy, and happy birthday NAN!

  1. Hi Nathaniel, your NAN-theme is great.
    The only disadvantage: Inside the Admin-Zone the code is shown at the wrong place.

    Greetings Wilhelm

  2. I have the same problem, Nathaniel. No matter what mode I upload the theme in, in admin the whole CSS file is shown as the name rather than just the theme name.

  3. sorry about that. did a little research online and this seems to be something the CSS editor i use is doing. if you open “style.css” with a text editor and copy the beginning (between /* */) from another template and paste it in (but change the name to stuttering) it should work just fine. i’ll fix this on the download-able version this week – have been away for a week and have some major catching up to do first!
    happy holidays!
