New Theme: eVid

Posted on October 23, 2008 by in Theme Additions | 122 comments

I finished a new theme today. It’s called ElegantVideo, or “eVid.” This theme is for video bloggers, people who plan to intergrate videos from video-sites such as Youtube into their posts.

Adding videos is fairly painless, just add the embed code from the website into a custom field and the rest is done automatically. The videos are displayed within a custom interface that adds some basic “blogger-like” features.

The theme comes with a decent amount of options. You can choose to remove the featured articles, popular posts, random posts and category boxes from the homepage, as well as specify the number of posts displayed within each element. There are two optional ad blocks, a set of 4 125×125 banner ads in the sidebar and a 468×60 banner at the bottom of post pages.

Take a look at the live demo and the features page for more info!

  1. Wow, another outstanding theme, there is no other wordpress themes collection with so many georgeous advanced wordpress themes there like this one! Respect!

  2. Looks good! However I’m not sure where can this be used. This one allows you to post vids and content, right? Is it possible to increase video screen size?

  3. Would like to use it for photos ! Is that possible and how ?

  4. Good job mate. Very good job =)

  5. Much “cleaner” than the last one and not too colorful – it´s really elegant, thumbs up!

  9. WOW Im so freaking glad I subscribed for this, your the best!

  10. quick question, what does “Recent From Graphics” mean???

    • Those are recent articles from a specific category, in this case, the “Graphics” category. You can change which category the list of articles pulls from within the theme’s options menu.

  11. Beautiful!

    An awful lot like templates, but hey, they’re not going to be available anymore in november!

  12. I love the color scheme on this one and the functionality is amazing…all I need is a site that could use it! (I sadly have no video sites!) I am going to play with it though that’s for sure!

  18. hi there,

  23. This theme is outstanding. I like the design so much, I think there needs to be a regular (non-video) version of it.
