INSIC WP – Free WordPress Theme

insic wp theme

My very first wordpress theme available for free. I think there’s no fancy about this theme, so there nothing to say a lot. lol If you think this is good for you then hit the download.

The only thing you need to do to make this theme work like in the demo. You must add a custom field on your every post name it “Thumbnail” (note its case sensitive), then add the link of your image in the value field. Thats it and you’re good to go.

    Looks quite nice. Only one thing I would improve a bit. Borders around posts could be a bit more visible. Not flashy, just a tad more light, as now, they are barely seen and thus erase that visual limit.

    But then again, that is just me. Overall looks awesome.

    On Safari 4 (Mac OS X), the “Read more” on boxes creates 2 lines.

  • Jeremy Worboys

    I get the same problem as Arnold (also running Safari 4b on OS X).

    The only improvement I could suggest would be to pause the scroller when the mouse is hovering it.

    Otherwise, you have done a wonderful job.

  • insic2.0

    @Arnold @Jeremy the read more box is now fix i think. :)

  • Jeremy Worboys

    Yep, well done once more.

  • CarlosB

    This is a nice professional looking theme.

  • Twen

  • Ara

    Nice theme, thanks for making it as a free :) Anw, featured area, is it using coda slider?

  • Alvaro

    Like it! I’m downloading it… I’ll use it of course but maybe must edit something like background colors, may I edit the theme? thanks for the awesome freebie

    I like this. Thanks for sharing it :D
    It’s beautiful with the neat layout.
    Looking forward to your next work!

  • JR

    all I can say is thanks… you helped me from having my brain explode (in terms of the whole blog building). You captured everything i wanted to do and made it simple.

    just a couple things:

    1. i cant seem to implement a page navigation at the bottom of the index page (similar to what your running, any tips would be awesome).

    2. i know of codaslider but how do i go about changing the settings for it (like i want to set on mouseover its stops and also maybe have it run with a longer delay), i couldnt really tell from looking at the js files. (sorry noob in the house)

    and last thanks again for the awesome theme.

    ps. hopefully i dont gut it like the last theme i was working with.

  • Fábio Silva

    With the theme Insic, I change some permission, I ask this because of my server, when sending the issue to him the pictures do not appear, but on localhost everything works correctly.

    Great theme, I got a few problems in viewing the theme, check this picture:
    Hope to tell me how to fix this?

  • insic2.0

    @Mahdi Al-Farra You need to create a “Featured Articles” category. :) Then add your post to this category so that it will appear in the slideshow.

  • Mahdi Al-Farra

    Thanks again, but why you didn’t mention that? or it’s so obvious and am so noob XD ?

  • leandro

    pretty and smart! Do you wanna marry me?!

  • http://[email protected] leandro

    great theme I’m gonna use it.
    But I think the search would be more useful if it was on the header, there is a big blank space there!! and the search button should be other color…

    But in general it is beautiful and clean!
    kisses from Brazil!

  • Shibi Kannan

    Very nice theme I just found by random search in google. I found one issue with the slider in safari. The thumbnails seem to crowd the overall display area and the text part is hidden by them. Some positioning problems with various areas can be removed by using a safari only conditional stylesheet just like how you do it for ie6. 
    Keep up the good work

  • insic2.0

    @Shibi Kannan what version of Safari you are using? and in what OS? its working fine here :)

  • kylegaze

    Nice Theme, just have a problem with the slider, i already have a Featured Articles category, and the post works fine, but the slider didint work.. any ideas? thanks..

  • Graham

    Hi There
    Beautiful theme but WP won’t let me use it. It says it needs a stylesheet. Any ideas?

  • Graham

    The file says Style.php in the file manager but there is no stylesheet. I have downloaded it and installed again just in case but same problem. Pity
    Good luck with the theme

    • insic2.0

      @Graham Thats strange. Maybe the stylesheet is not in the theme DIR.

    Currently I’m testing your theme for the blog of a friend, his current theme already uses a function “Thumbnail”.

    When I activate your theme an error message appears instead of thumbnail.
    The message is:
    phpThumb () v1.7.8-200709161750
    Error opening “”
    403 Forbidden

    The folder that contains the images have the rights: 700
    The thumbnail have a current resolution of 235×150.
    Have you any idea?

  • Dragonsord

    Thank you for this amazing free theme. It was exactly what I was looking for. I do have a slight problem tho. The slider works only it is not showing the images it is showing the blog. Not really what was intended. I placed the link of the image I wanted to use but it is not showing up, just text. Any ideas on how to fix this?

  • Yoshiiro

    i’ve meet the same problem, and with the new version of php you need to fix the phpThumb who made some error.

    There is a fix on sourceforge, you need to replace the older files phpThum on the director. /wp-content/theme/insicthemename/phpThum/

    Links :

    I’ve made it and it’s work very well.

  • Alessandro

    It’s not bad at all! did you use only Photoshop? Any other tool?
