WP Theme Review: Bright SkyBy JP Habaradas on March 30, 2010 @jaypee
Here’s another beautiful “freemium” WordPress theme from Kreative Themes, the same guys who gave us the Furvious WordPress theme, a theme I reviewed late last year. Bright Sky is a clean, simple and yet elegant theme with minimalistic elements. This is the first design created by Kreative Theme’s only lady designer – Nur Fathihah.
Here’s a little introduction from the Kreative Themes blog:
We are really proud to announce the release of our latest FREE WordPress Premium Theme, Bright Sky. This is a special release because it was made to celebrate our 500th fan in Facebook (actually we’re already doing the soft launch of the theme on our FB Fan page).
- Built-in gravatar support
- Built-in threaded comments support
- Banner ad management
- Powerful admin framework
- Twitter integration
- Lifestream integration
- Custom related entries section
- Cufón fast text replacement
- Theme options page
Bright Sky is a beautiful example of a simple yet elegant freemium WordPress theme. It has a premium-class design and has very nice typography. It comes with most of the basic features bloggers want and need from a free WordPress theme like widget-ready, gravatar and threaded comments support, etc. and it also has some features that’s mostly found on premium WordPress themes.
Aside from the overall design and layout, one thing I like most about this theme is the custom Related Entries section found at the bottom of each post. It displays a thumbnail and the post title of 4 related posts. It’s a built-in feature so you don’t need any plugins to implement that feature on your blog.
The Bright Sky theme uses the WP PageNavi plugin by Lester Chan for pagination but you don’t have to worry about getting the plugin because it already comes with the theme download. Another cool feature on the Bright Sky theme is Cufón fast text replacement which lets you use your own custom fonts or texts on your blog.
Another cool freemium WordPress theme from the folks of Kreative Themes. Looking forward to future free WordPress theme releases from you guys!
