GonzoDaily WordPress Theme

GonzoDaily is flexible-width three-column theme for WordPress. It has a newspaper-like front page, featuring three columns of text for browsers that support CSS columns (currently only Firefox, more to come).  Three sidebars are available to the right, that acomodate one-thirth of the page width.

Features

  • Flexible-width, the page expands with the browser up to 1200 px width. In browsers that support CSS media-queries the layout is changed if the screen is narrower than 800px.
  • Two-column sidebar with a full-width block on top of them. Three sidebars are available for widgets.
  • Widget – ready
  • Mobile and print style-sheets
  • CSS3 used for the header custom font via @font-face and for the columns on the front page
  • Additional archive and tags page templates

Credits

The font used in the header is Gputeks by gluk, licensed under SIL Open Font License.

Download

You can download the theme from WordPress Theme Directory, or directly from here.

Hi, I was hoping you could help me. My website(www.legendmusicreviews.com) has this weird thing were on my first post the post is on top of all the sidebar stuff and I want it to be on the side of the sidebars. Could you help me?

Gonzo, Brilliant design. I am trying to SEO your theme a little by replacing the h2s with h4 or h5 or h6. However, I am not a CSS wizard and I am trying to change the sidebar titles, to a non header, make it look exactly the same as you have it now but change:
‘top’,’before_title’ => “,’after_title’ => “,
to a non H (I do not know maybe use ? I think I need to do something in the CSS file and here? But despite my attempts I do not know how.
Thank you (I rated you five stars on WordPress as you theme is great.

Thank you, Mark! If you are trying to replace the header tags in the sidebars, I don’t think it will be easy. First you have to change the code in functions.php from this:

if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') ){
	register_sidebar(array('name' => 'top'));
	register_sidebar(array('name' => 'left'));
	register_sidebar(array('name' => 'right'));
}

To something like this:

if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') ){
	register_sidebar(array('name'=>'top','before_title'=>'<h4>','after_title'=>'</h4>'));
	register_sidebar(array('name'=>'left','before_title'=>'<h4>','after_title'=>'</h4>'));
	register_sidebar(array('name'=>'right','before_title'=>'<h4>','after_title'=>'</h4>'));
}

This one you got it right, the next step is to change the CSS in the part that controls the sidebars, arround line 717 from this:

.sidebar h2 {
	font-size:1.3em;
	line-height:1.2em;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
	margin-bottom:.2em;
}

to this:

.sidebar h4 {
	font-size:1.3em;
	line-height:1.2em;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
	margin-bottom:.2em;
}

Replace h4 with whatever tag/header level you want to use. If you want
to use for example P tag, it will be a good idea to add a class
attribute like this:

functions.php

register_sidebar(array('name'=>'top','before_title'=>'<p class="widgettitle">','after_title'=>'</p>'));

style.css

.sidebar p.widgettitle {
	font-size:1.3em;
	line-height:1.2em;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
	margin-bottom:.2em;
}

Hey, I was wondering how you can change the comment language. It shows up in Russian or Ukrainian or something. I can’t figure it out and have about fifty of them.

Гонзо профил

The latest version of the theme has this issue fixed. I had forgotten to properly localize the comments form, since the initial development of the theme was just for personal use.

Patrik

I just stopped by to tell you, this theme is awesome! You have done a great job.

Hi, template GonzoDaily is perfect. I have small bug with czech char font on FF 3. On IE6 not problem. Is it Š char. Problem is in perex.

Гонзо профил

@Patric, thank you!

@gusta, you haven’t left a URL to check the problem. What do you mean by „perex“? If the problem is with the blog title in the header, then it comes from the custom font I use for it, and the way Firefox handles it.

I will try to test the problem and see what happens.

Kevin

Just wondering if the blogroll links section is left out of the page on purpose, or if I am missing something. Any help you can provide with showing that section would be appreciated.

Гонзо профил

Kevin, you can arrange the widgets in the sidebars the way you want, just go to the admin panel,then choose Appearance -> Widgets and add whatever you like in the three sidebar areas of your blog.

I have put default content in the three sidebars just to have something there when you install the theme.

Hello,

I don’t know whether this is the right spot to post this, but I would like to thank you for the theme. It’s excellent, simple, clear and good looking. What more do you need than that?!

Best,

Of course, I forgot something. The only thing that slightly annoys me is that when you press ‘enter’ in a comment, it leaves no margin between sentences. Is there any way in which this can be changed?

Thanks!

Best

Гонзо профил

@Jurnan Goos, yes, now I see that there is no margin between the paragraphs. While you wait for a new version of the theme, you can edit the style.css file in the theme directory, around line 590 change this:

.commentlist li p {
margin-bottom:0;
}

to this:

.commentlist li p {
margin-bottom:1.5em;
}

Or you may delete the whole declaration. This way you’ll have one line of white space between paragraphs, like in the post body.

How might I obtain „the latest version“ of this theme? Like Legend Music Reviews, the Russian/Ukrainian words appear next to the boxes below the comment section.

Гонзо профил

Sorry for the delay, sfpittman, and yes, I was busy. Anyway, tonight I managed to check things, and it appears that the latest version, 1.4, was available (and still is) from WordPress Theme Directory, but I have forgotten to upload it here. So, it is now available from both links on this page, and it has the problem with the comment for fixed. And the words are in Bulgarian.

sfpittman

Humm…Version 1.4 is the version I up/downloaded. Still, the Bulgarian words appear. Is this an issue to be corrected in the HTML editor?

sfpittman

Gonzo,
I just realized that the Bulgarian words only appear underneath my Proprietor’s Prospectus (under Pages). Oddly, the English words are displayed while viewing the post as it appears in the „Uncategorized.“ If you have a moment take another look: http://www.adcaptandum.info
Thanks!

Гонзо профил

@sfpittman, I just uploaded new version of the theme with the comment form issue fixed, and also tested with WordPress 2.9. It should become available from the WordPress Theme Directory in a day, or you can download it from the link on this page.

sfpittman

By the way, version 1.4 is still the only version available in the WordPress Themes Directory. In instances when I attempted to download from this site, I have been confronted with „install failed“ or „version already exists.“ Am I misunderstanding something?

Natasha

Hello, Гонзо! A GonzoDaily-themed blog I’m a member on is showing a layout bug in WebKit-based browsers (recent Safari 4.0.5, iCab 4.7.0, Arora 0.10.2). On the front page, the lead article’s photo of a colander appears far below the article with white space above it. Anybody have a clue what the problem is here?

Laura

Има ли някаква надежда, че тази тема ще работят като три колони в Internet Explorer вместо да показва една колона?

Надявам се, че ще кажа „да“

Is there any hope that this theme will work as 3 columns in IE instead of showing a single column?

I hope you’ll say yes :)

serhio профил

Hi, Гонзо

Great work! I’d like a very simple customization update: hide the author from the post.

If I am the only who posts, every time „admin“ is a little bit odd… Ne krasivo.

Could you suggest me how to remove it, if possible?

Thanks!
