Straight up. We’re very proud of Greyzed here at eFrog Digital Design. Truth be told, we’re proud of all our c̶h̶i̶l̶d̶r̶e̶n̶ themes. This one’s a bit special though…
From it’s unassuming beginnings as a free, giveaway theme, offered by The Forge Web Creations, Greyzed has grown to become one of the top-ten most downloaded free themes on WordPress, with over a quarter of a million downloads. That’s a lot of downloads. A lot of cool people doing a lot of cool things with Greyzed.
Proud and humbled, we are…. *wipes tear, hums Kumbaya*…
But we haven’t stopped tweaking and updating Greyzed, and so today, we’re very happy to tell you about the latest version that we’ve made available.
Greyzed 1.4 is waiting for you, at eFrog Themes (for a paltry $5). The new version has been submitted to WordPress for approval and should be available in the WordPress.org gallery (still free) shortly, as well. We’ve fixed some small (but irritating) bugs, as you’ve asked (thanks again to the great folks who engaged us..), and we’ve added a sweet feature or two.
- Post Thumbnails. Show a post thumbnail for any post, by setting the “featured image” property of the post, Easy. Elegant. Posts without featured images degrade gracefully. No ugly placeholder.
- Fully Widgetized. The eFrog version has always been widgetized, but that functionality is now available in the WordPress.com and WordPress.org versions as well. Widgets, widgets, everywhere!
- PSD Included. We’ve had SO many folks ask about this, we just couldn’t say no. Starting with this version, the full, layered PSD is included in the download package (paid version). Customise to your heart’s content, tadpoles. Make beautiful stuff.
In case anyone is confused about paying $5 for Greyzed, when you could download it from WordPress.org for free, let’s clear that up right away. The eFrog version has a couple of significant advantages which we know you’ll see the value of:
- Social Connections. The eFrog version has the very nice Social Connections widget, built into the theme footer.
- PSD Included. The full, layered PSD is included in the download package of the eFrog version. That’s worth the pricetag, all on it’s own.
- Support. Membership of our support forums. Get the support of the folks who made Greyzed, as well as the community that’s grown up around it. A veritable ocean of smarts.
Annnnnd finally, we just want to thank you, all of you, who make Greyzed what it is. And if you haven’t yet, head on over and grab a copy! Have fun! Keep making gorgeous stuff!
