Cellar Heat
A wordpress theme testing playground for evaneckard.com


This page created October 9th 2008

“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
