WordPress Theme : Fauxed



Fauxed is my “improvement” of 5ThirtyoneV2.. Fauxed features:

  • a two column shelf in the top portion of the blog
  • a three column faux footer (to be widgetised soon)
  • Live Commenting
  • Support for Extended Live Archives
  • Better Support for asides
  • Support for noteworthy posts (coming soon)

and lots more….

Widgetising the theme and support for more commonly used plugins remains my chief priority and i plan to release them in the near future..

The Other thing is that Fauxed retains all the features of 5ThirtyoneV2 like support for Ultimate Tag Warrior, Ryan’s Contact form etc…

Installation Instructions

Installation of fauxed is like any other wordpress theme..

  • Download the zip file from here
  • extract and open the fauxed directory
  • open topside.php and edit the about text
  • open header.php to edit the navigation links
  • open shorts.php and edit your asides category
  • open home.php and again edit your asides category
  • upload the files and plugins to wp-content/themes/ and wp-content/plugins and activate the theme and the plugins

thats it and you are up and running.. if you have any issues please use the comment form below..

  1. I like it, Karthik!
    I’m trying to tweak it a bit to suit my blog (trying to add an archive of the 10 most recent posts into the bottom block, to give one example). But I really like what you’ve done with the Shelf.

  2. Hi,Karthik, I love your theme and tried it on my site, but I couldn’t find the page navigation (next entry, previous entry…), is this a bug?

  3. hey championeer this is not a bug but i haven’t really placed those links.. i will place them in the future releases.

    thanks for the info

  4. Hmm, have you noticed your dates are messed up — It is July 6th, but my comment says July 4 :)

    I found a strange thing…In the first link under ‘the commentary’ – if you highlight it, the little icon goes away and does not return until you highlight something in the left or right menus. Any ideas?

  5. hey jaxia thanks for the bug catch.. i will try and find out whatever is wrong with the comments form..

    i couldn’t really figure out what was wrong with the commentary

  7. I love your Web 2.0-ish theme karthik and will try it out soon… There are two things I gotta ask though:

    1) Your shelf looks distorted in IE 7 beta 2 (yeah screw IE, but still)…is this a browser specific bug?

    2)The ajax commenting would not get broke would it? This happened to my last theme…I dunno why :(

  8. Can this theme used for commercial purpose – I am designing a commercial site for my business and I really like it, also I use plan to use WP for CMS. Your suggestions and ideas are welcome

  9. of course you can use it for your business. please do remember to show me your modifications.. i would love to see it.. i would appreciate if you can keep the links at the bottom..

  10. After uploading the folder to the themes directory and activating the theme, I’m getting a fatal error Call to undefined function: blc_latest_comments() in bottomblock.php on line 26 .

    Where is the plugins folder? I didn’t notice any plugins with your theme. Thanks for any help.

  11. dear amit there is folder called plugins in the zip.. just upload that folder to ..wp-content/plugins and activate the required plugins..

  12. Hi,

    I am developing a templete for my site – all I did was a basic Wp install, installed your theme and required pluggins – but the shelf seems to be distorted (I see it distorted with Firefox – with IE it seems fine) – any suggestions. You can see it from http://www.dollars5.com/wordpress/

    I would appreciate your feedback and advice.

  13. I figured it out. If the top latest posts doesnot have six listsings – it is distorted – noe it works fine – I will let you know when the full site is ready.

  14. Hey!

    Great work. I’m trying to add navigation links (previous/next post) but these:

    seem to be ignored. Do you have any idea how to fix it?


  15. I was customizing your version of this theme when I noticed that the topside.php floats overlap with the navigation. Really simple fix, just added “clear: both;” to the navigation’s css attribute.
