Black-Letterhead 1.6.2

I just released Black-Letterhead version 1.6.2. This latest version supports WordPress 2.9 scheduled for release within a week. WordPress 2.9 has a new feature called post thumbnails. It allows a thumbnail or an image to be displayed in each post. Previously, blog owners have been using plugins to have this feature available on their blogs.



To activate the post_thumbnail feature, the function has to be enabled in functions.php.

if (function_exists('add_theme_support')) add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');


This entry is placed before the main content.

if (function_exists('the_post_thumbnail')) { the_post_thumbnail('post-thumbnail'); }


This entry is the same as above, but in single page mode.

if (function_exists('the_post_thumbnail')) { the_post_thumbnail('post-thumbnail'); }


Replaced navigation functions when viewing the home page.

  1. Hi,

    I’ve used your black-letterhead, which I love, but with the new WordPress 3.0, it doesn’t seem to be working. I can’t download an upgrade, the page doesn’t show up, and I’m wondering if you’re going to upgrade it so that it will work for 3.0? I hope so, otherwise, I have to choose a different theme and I really don’t want to do that. Please upgrade it, and please let me know if I can fix it because I really want to use it. It is the identity of my blog.


    1. Hi Carrie,

      The latest version should be compliant with WordPress 3.0. I was running Black-Letterhead 1.6.2 on WordPress 3.0 last night and I didn’t have any issues. Do you have a link I can check?

  2. Hi Ulysses,

    Pl fix the download link at the bottom of the content.
    Link below the image is working 🙂

    Thanks for the wonderful theme.

  3. Hello,

    This is a great theme, and I love it, as well as my associates. Still playing with it, and wondering if there is a way to reduce the “distance” between “Get the Word Out” and the headline “Savvy Journalist….” That’s a lot of space, and one observer thinks the distance could be shortened.

  4. Hi man, this theme is awesome! But I can’t found it in the themes directory! and I don’t know why… I want to put it to another blog that I have but I can’t… Any Idea?


    Thank you very much

  5. Hi, how do I get rid of the “Preferences <– click" in the sidebar? My readers should have no choice in the matter. 🙂

  6. Hi, I would like to know if I want to add a plug in on Black-LetterHead theme. Can I do that? As it seems I cannot find a ‘plugin’ setting from the back-end. Can someone tell me what should I do? Much appreciated.
