    This is really a nice theme - makes me think of Joost in terms of colors and style. Very cool and web2.0′ish!

    Good work!

    You might wanna fix the link in the “..First test run the theme, ..”, which is pointed to your The Studio theme, not the Colourise :)

    I downloaded the theme…how do I put the theme into my wordpress blog?

    @ thebuppie

    Do you have FTP access to your site?

    If so, unzip the theme file and add it to /wp-content/themes/

    If not, then you need to use WebFTP or similar file managers via host admin panel and upload the files and folders one at a time.

    good day,
    ive downloaded your template, i really think its nice.

    i want to change some of its css (width, height of the banner)where could i edit it? is there a file that i can overwrite it?

    sorry for the very noob question.

    i hope you guys could help. thanks a lot! :D

  1. 12. hso | May 4, 2008 #

    @ mr smeeg

    The styles are in style.php, you can modify the styles but do not overwrite the file itself.

    The drop-down category listings in the header of colorise is not working after I installed it. I haven’t had time to look at the codes yet but I was wondering if you might have any ideas as to why.


  1. 14. femi | May 28, 2008 #

    Also, I checked style.css and it only has comments in it. Where is the css file located?

    Thank you.

  1. 15. hso | May 28, 2008 #

    @ femi

    Can you be more specific when you say it is not working? Check to ensure if there is a folder called “js” within the theme folder.

    Also, the styles are within the style.php file, nothing in style.css.

    Beautiful template except for the 5 outbound links in the footer which makes it totally unusable. Count um….5 Don’t you folks think that is a bit gratuitous. Lets see how much pr I can pass for you folks out of the gate.

    @ jackstraw

    I see your point. You should consider hiring someone to build a custom theme for you with no attribute links!
