Download Cellar Heat for WordPress

March 2nd 2009 in Site News

“Cellar Heat” is a free theme from Evan Eckard brought to you by Smashing Magazine.

After creating the “Gumball Spcial” theme based from an older site of mine called HELLBISCUIT; I wanted to create a similar theme in layout that wasn’t image-driven like that one was. The layout was a unique design I produced over a couple years ago, and it’s finally being released.

At first I wanted to do a dark theme that would contrast the Gumball Special design. But after creating the dark version, I decided to produce a “light” version as well.

The only real difference in each theme are the images and stylesheets. 90% of the code is the same between light and dark.

You’re currently viewing the dark version of the theme. Below is a screenshot of the light version. Click to demo.

“Cellar Heat” has a few cool features built in. Gravatars are enabled, excerpts of previous and next posts per page, the theme is widgetized although I can’t guarantee they will look so hot), no plugins to be installed and a recent comments section in the footer.

Feel free to modify the code and design to fit your tastes, just please leave the footer links intact.

This theme has also been ported over to blogger by MagzNetwork

I noticed if you add sub-pages, that when you mouse over the parent page they do not appear. In fact they don’t appear anywhere on the site.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks again!


Great, great theme. Thanks !

LOve the layout. Just what I was looking for. What is Cellar Heat” Photoshop files for?


I’ve been using this layout since last year and there’s nothing wrong with it. Just that recently, in my main page, number of post in the main page is 33 but there’s only one which was shown after I check my blog. Can you help me with this problem please?
I love this layout and I don’t want to change it.


After searching through more than a dozen themes, I found Cellar Heat and it perfectly suits my site’s content. I only wish I could get rid of the annoying ordinals (“st” and “th”) in the date format. Or, better yet, I would like to stop the date from displaying.

Thanks for the awesome design Evan.


Is there a way to enable thumbnails / feature images?

That’s a really unique looking theme. That being said, I thought that “Cellar Heat Download” was an mp3 from some metal band. Funny.
