Mansion – Out Now!

Alright Guys, Hope everyone is doing just fine.

So, I am just following up on my previous post and I m so happy to tell you that Mansion is available for download now. Yes, Its still a free theme.

As you might have noticed, I have been working together with Graph Paper Press for more than a year now and I have released few themes earlier. This is the latest theme that I have collaborated with them. And since this theme suits more for Photo bloggers, I am releasing this under Graph Paper Press as well. Don’t worry, its still FREE. All you will need to do is a quick signup which is again free. You can grab great Photo Themes in there and more themes coming out soon as well. :)

P.S. – As Mansion is not released in this site, I will not be able to provide any support to it. Mansion is released for FREE as is. I have tested this theme on default WordPress installation 2.9.2+ and works fine. If its not working properly try disabling all the plugins and see. If still you have problems, any questions related to this theme should be put in the forums of Graph Paper Press.

simpleX, as the name suggests, is a simple, clean and minimalist WordPress theme.


This theme is my first official WordPress theme. I created this theme to learn (at first place) and only by changing the default WordPress CSS style. But as it developed, I had few things that I wanted to change. Then I tweaked the codes at a few places. I released simpleX 1.0 and listed out at official WordPress theme page on December 1, 2008. I was surprised at the statistics WordPress provided. Because of the overwhelming response and listed as top 20 themes at WordPress, I was inspired to make updates to it.

Development Log

Yes, I have kept a development log in case you are interested. :)


It now supports WordPress 2.7+ and commented threads. This site is also using simpleX so you are already previewing the theme. Please feel free to browse around and download the theme if you like it.


Interestingly, simpleX comes for FREE.



Future is always uncertain, as they say. I am not sure what I will do with simpleX in future. I have a few ideas in mind but again, I want to develop few other themes. If there is a significant amount of response with simpleX, I will keep on updating it otherwise, I will call it a theme and move on with other cool themes. Nevertheless, feel free to ask questions, give suggestions or post comments about simpleX on the comments section.
