Multi-Column Grid-Style Posts in WordPress

I found this hack is very useful particularly when I was designing my home/ index page display. I wanted my homepage displays news in two, three or four columns. And this hack perfectly fits into this need.

What you need is just simple php code with simple one line .css style:

There is another similar, but more complex example here: “6 Ways to Display WordPress Post Content in Multiple Columns

Just have a look and see which one suits you best.

West Papua Launches New WordPress Themes

Papoo! wP WordPress Theme is based on both the famous and mostly used Hybrid and Sandbox WP Themes Frameworks.

  1. Sandbox Theme Framework:

Introduction

Once upon a time, I was an actively developing themes and plugins for WordPress. No more. No, I have since moved on to other projects. And while this site is no longer updated, I want it to remain because when I was developing for WordPress, I found referencing other themes and plugins useful, even necessary.

But with the inclusion of the three functions that were the heart and soul of the Sandbox now in the WordPress core, my mark has been made, and there are new directions to go. Those functions, sandbox_body_class(), sandbox_post_class(), and sandbox_comment_class(), can be found in your recent WordPress download, simply renamed as body_class(), post_class(), and comment_class(), respectively. Mission accomplished.

So I hope what I did contribute once upon a time will continue to be of some use to the community. Plaintxt.org has become a single-page archive of what it was. Enjoy.

2. Hybrid Theme Framework:

It’s been a long, arduous journey these past four months or so, which is how long I’ve been developing this theme.

Hybrid is more than just a WordPress theme. It’s about pushing the limits with what WordPress can do. It’s a framework. Something you can use to build anything from the smallest family blog to a powerful site that handles thousands of visitors a day.

It’s why I created Theme Hybrid. It’s the reason I love working with WordPress.

If I could list all the benefits of this theme without taking up too much of your time, I would. I’ll just give you the short list instead, so you can go ahead and play with the theme:
Developed with child themes in mind, so you’ll never lose your customizations.
SEO optimized. No need for plugins to handle this anymore.
Theme options that are about content/information.
Templates for everything.
13 page templates.
Actively developed for WP 2.7 but backward compatible down to 2.5.
15+ plugins supported within the theme.
Attachment handling like you’ve never experienced.
Advanced breadcrumbs beyond any other theme.
Ability to run just about any type of site.
And over 20 tutorials to start.

Like I said, that’s the short list.
