WP Theme Review: Tulus 2.0



UPDATE 09/07/07:
Good news for those who’ve been waiting or asking for a widgetized version. The theme designer has provided a link to a widgetized version of Tulus 2.0 which you can get here.

Tulus 2.0 is a beautiful 2 columned WordPress theme designed by Bat of InfoMalaya.

Hi there, if you want to try this theme, just download it. If you like to appreciate my work on this theme, just do it by drop me an email or just leave the footer that links to me on your blog..That’s all, have a nice day.. :) Ops, why this theme named Tulus? In Malay words, Tulus means sincere..quite odd right? :) If you found any bug in this theme, please inform me via the comment section. Thanks a lot.

Basic features:

  • 2 columns
  • Right sidebar
  • Bottom bar
  • Tested on Firefox, IE 7 & Opera

My Take:
Tulus 2.0 is a simple but elegantly designed WordPress theme. The guys from InfoMalaya did a really good job with it and we could expect more beautiful themes from these guys. I would like to see this theme in a 3 column version which is quite popular these days. If you know a little of CSS, you can customize the theme yourself and add the second sidebar and other modifications. Looking at the files, I can say that this theme is easy to modify especially for those with some knowledge in CSS and hacking WordPress themes.

Unfortunately for widget fans, Tulus 2.0 is still not widget-ready at this time so you’ll have to wait the author to fix that or someone else to do it. ll like this theme and I’m sure most of you guys would like it too. I give this theme a 4 out of 5.

Preview or Download the Tulus 2.0 WordPress theme.

    @Nina – It really depends on the user’s preference. Some users like simple and minimalistic designs while others like designs with heavy graphics.

    I’ve just updated the post and included the link to the widgetized version of this theme. So if you’re interested, you can check it out. :)

    yeah u are right, it’s simple and elegant… but i think it’s too simple. at least right now, but once someone modifies it, i guess it’ll look fine. too bad though that it’s not widget-ready yet.. oh well. =]

    @jhay – Really? I only knew of Chris Pearson’s blog recently so you must be referring to his previous blog layout.

    Yup, it is a beautiful theme. :D

    It reminds me of Chris Pearson’s blog, it’s probably because of the way the header looks and the background image he used.

    But it’s a beautiful theme nonetheless.
