Download Theme

Check out our latest theme, Noteworthy. It’s a magazine style theme with a heavy focus on the featured images, and is heavily inspired by the design of USAToday.com, infact you could call it an homage.

It supports all the usual WP features like custom menus and widgets, and also has a nice reveal/hide search box and some handy social links top of the sidebar. Couple of other things to note about this theme:

  • You must define featured images for your posts if you want an image to display on the home page or archive pages.
  • By default the home page featured article and the list of featured articles just displays the most recent posts, but the theme is coded so that you can define what exactly appears here using the built in sticky posts feature of WordPress. The latest sticky post will be the main feature with the big image while older sticky posts will be list to the right of this. That won’t be to everyone’s taste, but we did it like this because we wanted to be able to control what was featured at the top of the page. The tiled posts will always just be the latest.

UPDATE 01/03/13 – Just updated the theme with much better handling/resizing of thumbnails. Also, there a demo at noteworthytrends.com

  1. I love you noteworthy theme, but i am a complete novice with websites. I really need help adding my logo to the header? or top of webpage as well as changing some of the sites colors to match my logo. Thanks, I look forward to the help.

    • Hi @Joseph

      Thanks for using our theme

      This will require some theme customization, beyond the level of support we can provide here in the comments. Also making this change you should be sure to set up your theme as a child theme first so that future theme updates don’t overwrite your local changes. If you would like our help with this please email us at help@wpdevshed.com and we can provide an estimate.

      Thanks

  2. Hi, I love the layout and hope to use it for my site. I am having with posts nots showing up on mobile devices. Is there something extra that I need to do? I thought I had everything set up and the posts looked great on a PC / Mac. When I click a link from my iPhone I get “PAGE NOT FOUND” . I’ve asked others to test and they get the same results. I see the web address changes to mobile.phillykeith.com

    I’m pretty new to this so I hope someone can help!

    • Hi Keith, that your site redirects mobiles to mobile.phillykeith.com suggests that you have some kind of mobile plugin installed? I suggest you look for this and try disabling it. The theme is responsive so technically you don’t need any 3rd party plugins to serve a mobile version, the theme will just adjust the layout to suit small screens.

    • Sure is…just add a link to your login page to the sidebar (in a widget) or nav bar (menu). You’ll always find you login here: …/wp-admin/

  3. Hi,
    I’m trying to add an image widget to my sidebar but nothing appears after I click SAVE. What I’ve done so far:
    -upload a screen capture image (185×55) to the media library
    -retrieved its image URL and put it into the widget
    -designated the above size
    -nothing appears

    please help, thanks!

  4. Hi Charles,
    Can you please suggest how can i upload a logo for the site in this theme? Couldn’t figure out the option in the theme options. Also is it possible to change the color of the header and the menu on the homepage?

    • Hi @manini,

      Thanks for using our theme

      Unfortunately the theme didn’t offer logo customisation or theme settings where you can replace logo, second for menu colour try this
      body.home nav[role=navigation] .menu ul li a, nav[role=navigation] .menu #menu-icon{ color: #000; } // change #000 to suit your need

      Hope that helps

  5. I’m currently using Noteworthy theme for my blog. I would want to add a working subscribe button. How can it be done.

    • Hi @Bhishan,

      Thanks for using our theme

      That can be done by installing Newsletter plugin or if you already have Mailing lists software registered online like, Aweber and Mailchimp you can use the generated HTML code instead.

      If this sounds techie for you, you can contact us help@wpdevshed.com

      Hope that helps
