GreyRound theme is now available to download for free from WordPress

It’s finally accepted

I initially submitted the GreyRound theme for WordPress to review more than 4 months ago, but because this was my first ever attempt at creating a new WordPress theme completely from scratch, there were quite a few things I missed and I was asked to change those.


After hours of reading the WordPress Codex I was ready and submitted the 2’nd version for WordPress to review. Weeks passed… three weeks to be exact. I was very disappointed to see that there had been no activity around my theme any more. It later turned out that the guy who was supposed to review it for me had abandoned the thread- I guess he had other things to do…


So my theme got assigned to a new moderator called Poena after about two months. This is where things finally started moving somewhere. Many thanks to Poena for being a very supportive reviewer! She helped me through all the things I forgot to implement and when I didn’t know how to do something she first made sure I learned about it on my own and then proceeded to add her own ideas. I think it’s great that the reviewers at WordPress actually care about you getting better in your skills and help you learn like that. So after a total of nine revisions the GreyRound theme was accepted.

  • hello frank

    do you know a method to get the header and navigation fixed at the top? i tried some css methods but no one succeed

  • Hey, using position: fixed; and top: 0; left: 0; should fix the container on top of your page. If you add a z-index: 999; it will make sure it stays above all other elements. So to get the header and navigation fixed on top all you have to do is put them both inside a container div and apply this style.

    You might want to add some margin-top to the main content div, after you have fixed the header.
