The Sunset Farm theme marks my 30th WordPress theme!

Time flies. I have been consistently designing WordPress themes for more than a year now. This time I have implemented some new ideas.

The first idea is to release this theme with options page where you can insert your Twitter username, feed URL, Google Analytics code etc. You can also perform more customization like defining your own header image and font style. I will show you how they work below.

The second idea is to make this theme available free with conditions. Read on and find out how you can get it free below.

Sunset Farm WordPress Theme

Theme Customization
Do you want to customize this theme to include images that suit your blog's topic? I can help you with the graphical customization. For more details, please visit the theme customization service page.

Main Features
- Free forum support at Sunset Farm forum
- Options page to insert Twitter, feed URL, Analytics etc.
- Drop-down menu
- Automatic Thumbnails
- Different design for sticky post feature
- Compatible with IE7, IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera
- W3C XHTML and CSS compliant
- SEO ready
- Gravatar enable

Options Page Features
Please go to the theme Options page article for full details.

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

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 Times New 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 that is available free from fonts4free.net.)
- Extract and open the PSD file in the Photoshop/ImageReady 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/custom/” folder

Part 2: Activating the Style
- Login to your WP admin
- Go to the options page of the Sunset Farm theme under “Appearance -> Sunset Farm”
- Find “Theme Style” under “Layout Setting”
- In the pull-down menu, select “custom.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 Sidebar 1 and/or 2. This widget allows you to add your advertisement while keeping the sidebar design. Please limit the width of your ad to 160px.

    http://twitter.com/TuberosaCammy

    and i did blog about your site here

    http://polianthes-tuberosa.blogspot.com/2010/02/wordpress-theme-by-templatelite.html

    Please let me know about the subcription and how to download the theme.. I thank you so very much…Have a pleasant day… :)

    • @Tuberosa, your site is hosted with Blogspot and the Sunset Farm theme only works on the WordPress platform. I am sorry that you are not eligible to obtain a copy of the theme.

      • oh really..? how frustrating… :( anyway, thanks Brian.. and i still adore your work… is there any theme that i can use for Blogspot?

        • You can go to Bloggerstyles.com to find quality Blogspot templates. Some of my themes have been converted to Blogspot and you can find them in Bloggerstyles too.

        • Thank you Brian.

  7. I just purchased the $35 package as my girlfriend wants to use it on her personal blog and she isn’t much of a Twitterer/RSS Reader/Public poster (hence we skipped “Option 1″ above).

    Many thanks. Your code is elegant and your eye for graphic design is great! Kudos and don’t spend it all in one place! :)

  8. Hello ^^

    I’ve subsribed your rss feed and posted it to my blog. But it’s written in German because my readers are German. But I translated the post for you ;-)

    http://blog.lebensberatung-alexander-weber.de/?p=235

    Translation:
    I found a very nice page with good and very beautiful wordpress templates in the web. I like them and I guess you’ll like them, too. While I was looking for a new template for my blog and found this site via google. This site offers wonderful themes and I was very impressed ’cause the most themes in the internet are quiet the same…but on this page I found themes which seem to live…So, if you want to own a great theme then check out that page!

    I hope that I did everything correctly.
    Best regards

    • @Alex, I am sorry that your entry is invalid because your blog is PR 0. You need to have a PR 4 blog if you want to go for Option 1.

  11. Hi! I blogged and subscribed to your RSS feed. Also sent you a message through your contact link. Thanks!

    • @Rebekah, your blog is PR 0 and is not eligible to choose Option 1. Please choose another option to get the theme.

  12. i love this brown look template! i love the whole thing about it. i just have a few question before i go ahead purchase it.

    1. what is the different between the $20 and $30 – pls help me understand ty.

    2. on the post do you have option for the Facebook like button, and the sharing button for other social media tools.

    3. do you have option for them to follow me from other social media site as weel like YouTube, Facebook, Delicious, Flickr etc.

    4. on the sidebar, can i modify to add my own widget? or plugins.

    thank you so much.

    • Please see my answers below:
      1) The $20 package includes the theme files of both the main and the sub themes. The $35 package includes everything you get in the $20 package + the PSD files of both the main and the sub themes.
      2) The Facebook icon is not built in. You’ll need to add the icon yourself.
      3) You can search for the social media plugin found in http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/
      4) Of course. All my themes are widget ready.

  13. I want to purchase this theme for USD 35, but there is no paypal in Pakistan. Please advise.

    • @LO, do you have a credit card? I can setup a link so you can pay via your credit card.
