Twenty Ten Options theme is a Child theme of the WordPress default theme Twenty Ten with several features that are commonly requested already included so you don’t have to add them yourself. I’ve tried to comment each section of the CSS and templates as much as I could so it’s easy to remove features you don’t want.
You can use this theme as is, or use it the same as any Twenty Ten child theme, or even use it as a base to create your own theme. It’s the theme this site currently uses (nivo slider disabled) and I’m using the 3 column layout.
- Post thumbnail support for index and category pages
- Option to mark a post as favorite using custom fields (adds a star image next to the post title)
- Nivo slider for featured image with post caption display
- Theme options with slider control, header control, search form on/off and area to add Google Analytics
- Extra WYSIWYG editor features
- Commented all functions in functions.php to make it easier to edit
- WP-PageNavi code included, it will display the plugin, if the plugin isn’t active, it will display the default.
- Thumbnail size separate from the defaults for the multi-column post layout
