Black Green Theme

Introducing my latest WordPress theme called Black Green. It’s simple, ultra-minimal and uses an Ajax Accordion script. The theme is a spin of the Black-Letterhead theme, but it’s more elegant and simpler. See the Accordion script in action by clicking between the Articles and Archives links.

  3. I really love your beautifull theme! Simple and clean. I have a few questions:

    Why is there no link page?

    Accordian css: Position: relative; can it be centered?


    regards Ron

  4. Ron, the links you are looking for are located in the Archives page. Just click on the Archives link from the theme’s homepage. As far as the relative positioning is concerned, this is the preferred choice since setting it to absolute screws up the accordion transitions. The footer briefly flashes when clicking on the Articles and Archives links. Yes, the posts can be centered. Just add another div inside the post div and style it in style.css.

  5. Sorry, the links will not show up if I click the Archive link on the homepage.
    For the links to show up you need a link.php.

  6. Hi Ron, I think I know what’s going on. I think your old theme had a page template called link.php, while this theme doesn’t have it. That’s why nothing shows up. But, there is an easy fix for this. You can copy your old link.php file and place it in this theme. You need to edit it using the same formatting you see in my page.php. By the way, your site looks good with the Black Green theme. Congratulations. In Dutch, right?

  7. I like both the Black-Green and the Black Letterhead themes, but I want you to combine the 2 — I want the accordion and the minimalist design, but I want the (reverse) the Black Letterhead design to that there is a dark gray background and a black content container (Image inverting the colors on BL and having the functionality of BG)

    Is that do-able?


  8. ProphetJoe,

    The good news is Black Green is based on Black-Letterhead. You should be able to control background colors via style.css and accordion.css. You control the page width as well. I recommend you use the Web Developer extension in Firefox, that’s if you use Firefox. It’s a great tool for applying CSS on the fly and seeing the results without uploading to server.

  9. Hi Ulysses,

    I’ve snooped around inside the CSS, but I don’t see where there is a “container” div tag. I’ll download BL and see if I can determine where it is in that theme and then try to add a new DIV to BG — unless you have a quicker/better option (and I’m all ears if you do 🙂 )

    Thanks again,

  10. Hi again Ulysses,

    Thanks.. but I’m way beyond the background now 😉

    I do have one element that I haven’t been able to find/change — the date element. According to firebug, it is the class=”postdate”, but I don’t find it in either .css file. I even tried adding it to style.css, but that didn’t work either… any ideas?


  11. Ulysses,

    I’ve mucked something up… if you look at my site using FireFox, it looks the way I want it to look, but if you use IE — it looks like crap — the accordion_child element is WAY out of line and I don’t understand why… any suggestions??


  12. Hi again Ulysses,

    I’ve noticed a distracting shake in the javascript transition between the posts link and the menu (or meta) link. I don’t recall seeing this before and I’m puzzled if I changed something inadvertently… Would you take a look at my page to see what I mean?

    Many thanks!

  13. Prophet Joe,

    I noticed the page is whacked in IE particularly with the accordion index page. Do you remember what changes you did on accordion.css? The page width is also too wide. Let me take a look at it this afternoon. Sorry, kind of busy lately. I’ll get to it this afternoon.

  14. Prophet Joe,

    I noticed you made quite a bit of CSS changes to style and the accordion files. I found it difficult to undone what you have done without spending too much time and fixing every little thing. One option is to start from scratch. Download the theme again and make litlle changes along the way and making sure it works in both Firefox and IE browsers. Do you have a chat account if you want to discuss further. I’m available at ulyssesr at either yahoo, msn or aol.

  15. Hello there,

    I love this theme of yours, it’s just awesome!
    I was wondering if I’m allowed to do any changes to it? I kinda already did, but if u don’t allow it, I’ll just have to think of something else. I’ll change the theme immediately back the way it was if you say so 😀

    Could u please reply via email? Would be great. You can see the changes by checking the website i provided.

    1. blizzu,

      the theme is release GNU open source. You can do anything you want to it as long as you release the code if someone asks for it.

      I like the changes you made to the theme. Keep up the good work.

    1. I suppose you can make any part of the theme widget ready. Check out the Akismet or the website. They have tutorials how to make a theme widget ready. You can apply it to any theme or any part of a theme. Good luck with that.

  16. Hi,

    Great theme, but the accordion seems not to work in IE 6. I hate IE. Is there a fix?


      1. OK, I figured out what was wrong; I had IE set at it’s most secure for internet browsing and it blocked the javascript. I apologize for wasting your time.

        By the way, I’m preparing to use your theme and I’d like to know the proper etiquette for giving you credit.

        Thanks again.
