UPDATE The Bright lemon theme is out of date and no longer compatible with the latest versions of WordPress.

Bright lemon themeBright Lemon is a free template to use with the open source blog WordPress.

It features a 2 column layout and the features include: dropdown top menu for categories; customizable retweet script on all posts and pages, footer navigation and a bright lemon look.

It comes cufon ready using “Franklin Gothic Heavy”, but can easily be changed.

The theme has been tested and is compatible (to our best knowledge) with IE6, IE7, Firefox 3+, Opera 9+ and Safari 3+.

Installing the Bright lemon theme:

To install the theme, first unzip the files and then upload the entire folder to wp-content/themes, within your WordPress installation on your server. Then go to your WP admin panel, and under the ‘Appearance’ tab, select ‘Themes’. Find the Bright lemon theme and activate it.

Retweet Javascript

We decided to include a javascript Retweet button on all posts and pages. To track the traffic going on twitter you should change 2 lines of code, don’t worry it isn’t scary. First of all create yourself an account on Once registered you can go to your account page and there you can find your API Key (example:R_90b75884bc70ce4ac35d8e3b7e000c1d) copy that, your own; not the example.

Then you open the retweet.js file in the theme. And now for my favourite kind of coding, “copy and paste”. On line 18 of the javascript file you replace our API key with your own, you also need to enter your username on line 14. And that is all the coding needed, as Mike would say:
– Simples!
