New Theme: Next Saturday

New Theme: Next Saturday  阅读原文»

I’m pleased to announce our newest theme ― Next Saturday. That is, the theme called “Next Saturday” launches today (not next weekend). With its rich, bright colors, three-dimensional blocks, and subtle shadows, Ian Mintz’s Next Saturday brings a touch of childlike innocence to your blog.

The Next Saturday Theme

The Next Saturday Theme

Next Saturday was designed especially with Post Formats in mind. The theme supports seven post formats — quote, aside, image, gallery, chat, audio and video. Many of these post formats receive special styling so that they “pop” out from the rest of your content. To read all about Next Saturday’s features, stop by the Theme Showcase.

New Theme: Chapters  阅读原文»

If you've wanted to promote a book, this unique design is a perfect match. It's called Chapters and it's the latest in a series of terrific themes from Woo Themes.

The Chapters Theme

Chapters was originally designed by uber-designer, Tim van Damme, and was used to to promote the book "Rockstar Business". The unique design of this great theme makes reading a blog post feel like you are reading a chapter in a book. The top chapter number gives an overview of the chapters and also a visual bookmark of the post you are currently viewing.

You are also able to customize your Chapters with a lot of features like the other premium themes available on

Chapters is available for the lifetime of your blog for $45. Read more about the Chapters features or preview it live on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

Timthumb Security Update

Timthumb Security Update  阅读原文»

We have received an email from Nick Roachandtoday on the security update on all ElegantThemes premium themes caused by the Timthumb image re-sizing script. In case they might have miss out Nick’s email, here is the email




You are receiving this email because you are an active member In the past, our themes have used a popular image re-sizing script called Timthumb ( The script is used by millions of sites and is quite popular in the WordPress themeing community. That being said, it was noted yesterday that a vulnerability exists within certain versions of the script (, and therefore this vulnerability may also exist in your theme (depending on when you last updated it). While that author has provided a fix, it is highly recommended that you update all of your EelgantThemes themes to their latest versions. The latest versions of our themes no longer utilize the timthumb script and therefore are not subject to this security hole.


Regardless of when you last updated your theme, I would strongly suggest that everyone update their themes to the latest version and insure that the timthumb.php file and your /cache folder has been removed. To update your theme and remove the file, simply delete your current theme via the Appearances > Themes section of the WordPress Dashboard. Then you can re-download the theme from the members area and re-upload it normally:


The latest theme versions require that your thumbnail images be hosted on the same domain name where WordPress is installed. If you were previously using timthumb.php to allow external image source by editing the file's $allowedSites array, then these thumbnails will no longer function.


Before updating the theme, make sure that you are using the latest version of WordPress. I would also disable all of your plugins temporarily before doing any update to insure that no compatibility issues exist. Remember to always keep WordPress, your Themes and your Plugins up-to-date to help protect yourself against any vulnerabilities.


I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.


Best Regards,
Nick Roach

Meanwhile, we have also received another email from VaultPressteamwhereby the security vulnerability can be fixed by referring to steps as below.

We recommend deleting timthumb.php or thumb.php if your site will work without them. If the file exists in a theme or plugin that you're no longer using you may want to remove the entire theme or plugin directory. After you remove the TimThumb library make sure you check that your site is still working correctly.

If you must use TimThumb please make sure to update the file with thelatest versionand remember to check the TimThumb site regularly for updates. You should also setALLOW_EXTERNALtofalseand find the$allowedSitesarray inside the file and remove the domain names to prevent remote file downloading.

Make sure this constant is set to false:

define( 'ALLOW_EXTERNAL', false );


$allowedSites = array ( '', '', '', '', );


$allowedSites = array();

If you ever need our assistance on this security update, please contact our technical team at

The number of beautiful themes that let you publish with visually distinct Post Formats grows by one today with Mathew Buchanan’s elegant and bold, Esquire. I think you’re really going to like it.

The screenshot above doesn’t really do justice to Esquire. You really need to check out the Esquire demo blog to get a good sense of how the design works in action. So, check it out. :) If you want to know more about blogging with Esquire we've made a page that describes all the Post Formats in more detail on the Theme Showcase. You can read up on Esquire there, check out that live demo, or just activate it on your blog and start experimenting!

How To Add Style To Author Comment Box on WordPress

How To Add Style To Author Comment Box on WordPress  阅读原文»

More and more bloggers are switching over to WordPress as their CMS or content management system when building their blogs. WordPress is famous among bloggers due to its highly customizable nature and thousands of plugins which are available for it. Plugins make our work easier and we don’t need to stretch ourselves in the coding part. What keeps us bloggers to keep on writing are the comments and responses we received in the comment boxafter posting it. We all know how boring it can get if your blog does not have a rather active comment box. After all, the comments are our first filter in getting the response from our audience.

So, today I will be teaching you on how to add styling to your author comments box on WordPress. I have tried to search on the Internet for any suitable plugins which might be available for this task, but couldn’t find any satisfactory results. Chances are there are some plugins for this task, but they are not that well-known so finding them is a bit of a difficult task. In fact, adding styling to author comments is not difficult. Here’s how to do it manually as shown in my tutorial and you will be amazed how simple this task is.

By default author comments on WordPress looks similar to user comments as depicted in the following image:

default author comments

Highlighting Author Comments

Now first of all we would begin by highlighting the author comments. This can be done by adding background color to author comments. In order to do so add the following code in your style.css File:

.commentlist .bypostauthor {
background-color: #E7F8FB ;

After you have added the above code in your style.css file, simply refresh the post page to see the changes. Now all the author comments would be highlighted with the background you mention in the above code (Here we kept background color as#E7F8FB)

Flip Author Gravatar

Now that you have already highlighted author comments let’s add more styles to them. Now to flip author Gravatar add the following code in style.css file.

.commentlist .bypostauthor .avatar {
position: relative;
float: left;

Here we are using a theme in which by default gravatar appears on the right, so we change the author gravatar location to the left. If in your theme default location gravatar is on your left, just replace left with right with the above code. After adding the code, save the file and refresh the page to observe changes. Now you can see the author gravatar has been flipped to the left side whereas normal comments gravatar is on the right side.

flip author gravator


Adding Border To Author Comments

Now let’s add border to author comments with rounded corners. Simply add the following code in your style.css file to add border to your author comments.

.commentlist li.bypostauthor {
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding: 5px;
margin-bottom: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;

Here border-radius specifies the radius of rounded corner of the border. If we increase the value of border radius the corners will become more rounded. In this example we have chosen black color (#000000) as the border with 1px width. After saving the file, refresh the post page to see the changes.

Please be informed that it may not be applicable to certain themes due to the some designer that uses multiple CSS style sheets. Please feel free to drop me a comment or feedback if you any doubts. I will try my best to help if you encountered any problem with your author box styling.
