New Theme: LightBright

With the popularity of tumblr increasing I thought it would be great to create a WordPress theme that allowed for similar functionality. LightBright makes it easy to share your daily life through its tumblr-style post types. Using the custom post types/taxonomies added in WordPress 3.0, the theme adds special integration options for photos, video, audio, quotes, notes and links. If you love the format of tumblr but don’t want to give up the versatility of WordPress, this is the theme for you!  Be sure to view the Live Demo, or check out the Features Page for more information.

LightBright Features

1. Four Unique Color Schemes – LightBright comes with four different color options, including Turquoise, Purple, Green and Black.

2. Six Custom Post Types - Custom post types allow you to share media in a tumblr-style fashion. With the click of a button you can share your photos, videos, quotes, notes link and audio files with your visitors.

I hope everyone enjoys the theme. Be sure to drop a comment and let me know what you think!

    • Yeah me too. I look forward to your themes Nick, any idea on a release date for delicatenews?

      • Don’t worry, DelicateNews should be the next release. It will be ready in a week or less.

        • Swwwweeeeeeeet, DelicateNews looks so pretty :)

          • Lets just hope its not as huge as the other magazine theme!

        • Nick, that sounds fantastic, much appreciated I can’t wait to try it out.

  5. great looking theme, but I was desperately waiting for DelicateNews…oh well, happy that we don’t have long to wait

  6. Any news when “Daily Notes” will make its debut?

    I love this theme (will install it when I have time later on), but I love the “birds eye view” of Daily Notes.

  7. Great theme!
    Thanks for keep working in your nice design.
    :-)

  8. Hi Nick,

    Nice job

    I have already started playing with it and have created a test site to see if it will work as a permanent fixture.

    Will there be a support forum coming soon? I already have some questions who it will work as a theme change and not starting from scratch.

    gj

  16. Really awesome theme. Just used it on my personal blog. Brilliant

  17. I love the theme but there are a few issues…
    Permalinks dont work, posts dont count towards the total and…the biggest of all… if you ever change the theme from this one, all those tumblr-type posts are no longer visible!

  18. Nice work thank you for this one.

  19. Hey Nick, i can’t use in portuguese because this theme doesnt support the codificication??? Why not? All the other themes of here support!

  20. It’s a nice theme, but the side menu is not rendering correctly for me. I am getting only text and text links – none of the button styling that is shown on the preview or screenshots.

  21. Why the ´, ^ and ç doesn’t appear?
    I cant use in portuguese because of this…
    What i need to do?

  22. No facebook for sharing links?

  23. This one is awesome. Thanks a bunch!

  24. O_o That’s impossible !

  25. This theme is amazing but the sidebar is a bit too small,
    If I want to add a Twitter Widget it doesn’t display properly.

    Know of any fix?
    Or a way to make the sidebar wider?

  26. This one is really really cool! I like it so much!

  27. Hi all,

    Thanks for the theme, but it doesn’t seems to work with French special char.
    So you need to :
    1. Download the original font here : http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/League-Gothic
    2. Regenerate the js file here : http://cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/
    YOU NEED to check the “Latin-1 Supplement” into the “Include the following glyphs” section.
    3. Replace your existing “League_Gothic_400.font.js” in your theme directory with the new one.

    Refresh and Voila!

  28. Nice theme. Colors are hard… ;-) like the one in Grey

  29. great theme but width of main text area is very small . is there any way to increase it

  30. Great work for the theme! Good luck!

    :)

  31. What a great theme. Thanks a lot !
    I’ve got only two small issues :
    - (only custom) posts don’t display in rss feed ;
    - they are not considered as posts so are not posted automaticly to twitter anymore.

    Could you give some help please ?
    Have a nice day.

    • If you are using the latest version of the theme then all posts will be included in your rss feed.

  32. Is there any way that I can edit this so the theme can be wider?

  33. Great design work!

    Does this LightBright theme allow me to add an email subscribe input similar in appearance to the search bar at the top of the page?

  34. Is there any way to import post that were already created into the seperate post such as videos, pictures, and so forth with out having to create all new post?

  35. How come when I click on the link from a post, it says it can not find page? what is the problem with the links and the posts?

  36. very nice..you should make more wordpress theme with tumblr style

  37. The latest version of Twitter Followers widget is released.

  38. I’m having a problem with links on this theme… When I insert the code for for a link or an image into a post, nothing shows up. The link text shows as just plain text.

    Very disappointing, since I really like this theme. How can I adjust this?

    Thank you!

    • Please open a thread in the support forum so that we can assist you.

  39. Awesome theme, I already use it but till now I still can’t optimize it but I will. :D
    Thanks

  40. Hi,
    I’ve tried LightBright but you seem to have an issue in IE 9, when you have more than one row for menus…the dropdown is going under the second row of menu items

  41. No facebook for sharing links? How can I add to facebook “sharing” section please help: (

  42. Is there a way to change the sharing button selecting the social you want to post on?
