When I first started the Martial Development blog, I wanted to use a martial-arts-themed design. Since I could not find any in the public WordPress theme library, I applied the Light theme by Stephen Reinhardt instead. Until now.
You Can Never Defeat My Style
In a sudden fit of inspiration, I’ve designed a new visual style for Martial Development. It is based upon the Cutline framework, with a few minor changes:
- Chinese red color scheme and background images;
- AdSense friendly, with section targeting and support for blended ads;
- Built-in social bookmarking links (Digg, Reddit and Delicious).
Like Cutline, this WordPress style is released under the Creative Commons Attribution / Share-Alike license. In other words:
- You may use it, or tweak it yourself.
- You may not sell it, or remove the attributions in the footer and style sheet.
- Download the Ninja Scroll theme archive and extract the files it contains. Preserve the directory structure in the archive when extracting these files.
- Use an FTP client to access your host web server, and upload the extracted files to the wp-content/themes directory provided by WordPress.
- Log in to your WordPress Administration Panel.
- Select the Presentation subpanel.
- In the Themes list, click on the Ninja Scroll preview image.
- To view the new look, click View Site at the top of the page.
For further guidance, see the WordPress Codex. Please do not contact me for technical support; I don’t have time to give it.
Feel free to suggest improvements to this theme. Or, even better, improve it yourself and show us how you did it.
