Neutral Blue is a free WordPress theme released by the a freind of mine from the warrior forum which features a clean and elegant look. The design is based on a three column layout which can be changed to a two column layout using instructions provided by us.

Another feature of this WP theme is it’s support for a multilevel dropdown menu.

The dropdown menu supports an unlimited depth of items which means you can have a Parent, Child, Grand Child, Great Grand Child, Great-Great Grand Child etc. The theme also supports the WP Page Navi plugin.

If that plugin is installed, it will be used for pagination instead of the default paging system that is provided by WordPress. The theme is compatible with WordPress.

The instructions to convert the sidebars from two column to a single column are as follows:

1. Edit file functions.php and find:

if(function_exists(‘register_sidebar’)) {
register_sidebar(
array(
‘name’ => ‘Left Sidebar’,
‘before_title’ => ‘<div>’,
‘after_title’ => ‘</div>’,
)
);
register_sidebar(
array(
‘name’ => ‘Right Sidebar’,
‘before_title’ => ‘<div>’,
‘after_title’ => ‘</div>’,
)
);
}

and replace it with:

if(function_exists(‘register_sidebar’)) {
register_sidebar(
array(
‘before_title’ => ‘<div>’,
‘after_title’ => ‘</div>’,
)
);
}

2. Edit file sidebar.php and find:

<li><ul><?php if(function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’)) dynamic_sidebar(‘Left Sidebar’); ?></ul></li>
<li><ul><?php if(function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’)) dynamic_sidebar(‘Right Sidebar’); ?></ul></li>

and replace it with:

<li><ul><?php if(function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’)) dynamic_sidebar(); ?></ul></li>

3. Edit file style.css and find:

#content {
float: left;
margin: 0 20px 0 0;
width: 545px;
}

replace it with:

#content {
float: left;
margin: 0 15px 0 0;
width: 635px;
}

find:

#sidebar {
float: left;
margin: 0; padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
width: 420px;
background: 205px top repeat-y url(images/bcksidebar.png);
}

replace it with:

#sidebar {
float: left;
margin: 0; padding: 0 0 0 15px;
list-style-type: none;
width: 320px;
background: repeat-y url(images/bcksidebar.png);
}

find:

#sidebar li {
float: left;
padding: 0 10px 0 0;
width: 200px;
font-size: 12px;
}

replace it with:

#sidebar li {
float: left;
padding: 0 10px 0 0;
width: 310px;
font-size: 12px;
}

Changing the background image:

If you want to change the background image, you would just need to replace the file images/bck.png with the repeatable/tileable image of your choice. Optionally you might also want to edit the following line in style.css:

background: #193441 url(images/bck.png);

#193441 is the code of the background color currently being used currently. If for some reason the background image fails to load, this would be color that would be displayed in the background of the browser. It acts as a fail-safe mechanism.

Instructions to add a image logo:

Edit file header.php and find:

<a href=”<?php echo get_option(‘home’); ?>/”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a> &#8212; <span><?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></span>

with:

<a href=”<?php echo get_option(‘home’); ?>/”><img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_url’); ?>/images/logo.png” alt=”<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>” /></a>

logo.png is the filename of the logo and it needs to be placed under the /images/ folder. The maximum dimension of the image can be 700×30 pixels

Changing the themes top padding:
Edit file style.css and find:

body {
margin: 0; padding: 15px 0;
background: #193441 url(images/bck.png);
font-family: “Trebuchet MS”, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;
color: #111;
}

Replace 15px with the desired padding you like.

Or you can simply use plugins to add extra functions to the themes without messing with the code.
