I never thought the safari topic can suit the Bulletin Board theme so well. The wooden elements of the original theme really blend nicely with the jungle and the wild animals.

I have been working on a new project and I think this style is perfect for it. When the project is completed, I’ll share the work here on this post.

Translation Help Needed

If you wish to translate this theme into your own language, you can do so with the use of the Poedit program. To find out how this works, please refer to this comprehensive guide.

When you have completed the localization, kindly send me the translated files so I can share your work (with your credit) with other users.

Automatic Thumbnails
Please refer to this page for the details of how the automatic thumbnails work.

Drop-down Menu
The Bulletin Board theme has a multi-level drop-down menu that is using the latest function in WP 3.0. There are two ways to create the drop-down menu.
1) When you create hierarchical pages, the drop-down menu will show up automatically in the header navigation.

2) You can manually define the header links using the custom menu. To do it, first, click on the “Menus” link found under the “Appearance” tab in WP admin. Then follow the instruction on the page to add your custom menu. This feature only works with WP 3+.

Plugin
There is a featured content section below the header menu. This feature is built in using the Featured Content Gallery (FCG) plugin. Please download the latest version and follow the instruction found in “Readme.txt” to do the setup.

If you do not want to show this feature, just don’t install the plugin.

Blog Title and Description
The demo is showing a special font as below:

By default, after you install the theme, the blog title and description are showing the Time News Roman font.

You can change the font style by following this instruction:
Part 1: Modifying Font Style
– Download this PSD zip file (also include the font that I use)
– Extract and open the PSD file in the Photoshop/ImageReady/Gimp/PaintShop program
– Change the title and description using your desired font (you are free to modify the header image if you want)
– Save the image using this name: bg_header.jpg
– Upload the image to your server in the “/styles/story/” folder

Part 2: Activating the Style
– Login to your WP admin
– Go to the options page of the Bulletin Board theme under “Appearance -> Bulletin Board”
– Find “Theme Style” under “Layout Setting”
– In the pull-down menu, select “safari.css”
– Save the setting and go to your site to see the changes.

Ad Widget
An ad widget can be found under the “Available Widgets” section. You can drag the widget to the sidebars. This widget allows you to add your advertisement while keeping the sidebar design. Please limit the width of your ad to 160px.

  2. Hello, I must say pleases that subjects very good to me.

    If I buy the PSD Files, can I remove the animals from the Header and Footer and can replace by others?

    Best regards

    • @Andre, sure you can. Simply turn off the animal layers and upload the updated file to the server will do.
