Lots of New Twenty Ten Child Themes!

It’s been a while since I posted any new Twenty ten Child Themes on this site. I’ve been bookmarking them as I find them and one reader mentioned his own child theme in a comment so I thought I should get to work and post them.
First we have a Tumblr style child theme called Salju. I’ve played around with this theme and it’s really cool how it works. I’ve seen themes that require the use of woothemes tumblr plugin, this theme creates posts the same way, but without the use of a plugin. It has a nice background image and a snow effect built in, by WPCharity.com You can download it from their site Here – Salju Theme.

Next is a new type of theme called Centipede, it requires the use of the feedwordpress plugin to draw feeds in from your own social sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, WordPress.com and creates a tumble style layout with color coded posts for each social feed post. Be sure to check it out.

    Twenty-ten has actually become one of my favorite themes. I’m very happy they changed it to the default from that “Kubrick”, which let’s face it, was getting real old. Twenty-Ten has it all, simplicity, good options easy set-up, and a nice clean header area that you can quickly change to your liking.

    These child themes you’re showing just make the theme all that much better.
