StudioPress WordPress Theme Released

by Daniel in 291 Comments — Updated Reading Time: < 1

Update: This theme was replace with Genesis Pro.

We have another WordPress theme ready to go. StudioPress is a very clean theme, and it comes with the possibility to integrate several AdSense units.

Here are some of the features of the theme:

  • AdSense-ready: The theme comes with three units integrated already. A 468×60 unit on top, a 336×280 unit on top of the sidebar and a 120×600 unit on the bottom of the sidebar. You just need to copy & paste the AdSense code on the specific php files.
  • Widget-ready: The theme supports widgets, so just drop the ones you use.
  • Comment styling: Comments alternate with a different background, making it easier to follow the conversation.
  • “Welcome” section on the sidebar: You can customize a “Welcome” or “About us” message easily through the form on the “Theme Options.”
  • Search Engine Optimization: The theme comes with title tags optimized, and it already displays only excerpts on archive and category pages, to reduce the duplicate content.

If you have any problem using the theme or any suggestion for improvements just leave a comment below and we’ll try to help.

  1. RE: Marcos with image border issues…

    I had been struggling with that one for days! This theme looks nice but it took a lot of understanding how the CSS was coded to be able to tweak it. With that border, it also shifted the smilies around and looked weird. I gave up on the theme and started tweaking others when I discovered what another did on their css for the img tag.

    If you look on the style.css at line 381, you’ll see something for postContent img. You need to change it to take out the border and the pixel size for the margin. I’m not even sure why it’s in there the way it is because all my photos ending up with that border around them which is not attractive at all. You line should look like this, if it shows properly on this comment:

    .postContent img {
    border: 0px none #FFFFFF;

    It is amazing to me how that little change makes it look soooo much better with the smilies aligned more with the text instead of being scooted off to the side with an ugly grey border around it.

    This theme works great if you leave it as is with the background images but if you’re looking to customize and tweak it, be prepared to spend days on it if you’re not super savvy, which I can’t say that I am. It took me all evening long just to figure out how to get my logo graphic in the header. Good luck!

  2. Hi! 🙂

    Someone knows how can I eliminate the “border” that appears around all images and smiles on StudioPress Theme? The border color is #CCCCCC.

    Thank you in advance for your help. 🙂

  3. Paul – there is no Line 63 when I download the header.php file to edit it. As per my previous comment, doing a find on ‘rss’ returns nothing at all!

    Think this is because the downloaded file contains an odd document sort of symbol, which is an editable link relating to RSS – but if I edit that, it converts the file to .rtfd and seems to make it unrecognizable for upload.

    That leaves me only with editing the file in place in WordPress and I don’t like that – tried finding your string and replacing and then got a 404 error on clicking the RSS button.

    Can you explain why the header.php file will not allow me to find any string with ‘rss’ in it? Or how I can edit that safely???

  4. Thanks for the reply. You said
    @patrick, open the header.php file, and find the code for the rss icon. You can insert your feedburner URL there.

    That is what I initially thought to try – problem is, a search for ‘rss’ in that file returns nothing. I don’t see where anything RSS-related is mentioned …

  5. @ascony, themes do not affect your admin area. The problem is coming from somewhere else.

    @patrick, open the header.php file, and find the code for the rss icon. You can insert your feedburner URL there.

  6. Great theme – thank you for it.
    One question – how do I change the feed URL in the Grab Our Feed section top right? It points at my site’s default feed, but it needs to point at Feedburner.

  7. I am not able to log in to my wordpress wp-admin area. i always get the following error message.

    Not Found
    The requested URL /wp-admin/ was not found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/2.0.63 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.63 OpenSSL/0.9.7a mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at Port 80

    Please what do i do about this? Help will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

  8. Ok,
    I just figured out that if I edit home.php instead of index.php I can get the ” ” to work without messing up the sidebar. The only problem is that it doesn’t put a link to the full post at the end. i wanted a link similar to “more…” at the end so that the reader would understand to click to get to the rest of the post.

  9. Great Theme!!

    I am new to wordpress and my problem may be simple. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I want to be able to show the first paragraph or so of long posts with a “Continue reading” link at the end that leads to the entire post. I have tried using the “more” tag. it works but it moves both sidebars to the bottom and screws up the footer. I tried tried using the “excerpt” function but it doesnt seem to have any effect. i’m sure I must need to edit some page in the “Theme Editor,” I am just not sure which to edit. Can anyone point me to the right direction.

  10. Hello Ben, hey i noticed you were having the same problem with tabs. I tried to fix it too but i never got any luck. I am leaving you a commente here so to verify that the only thing that i have to do is to delete from line32 de word FEED? and from line 7 in footter.php only the word Feed?
    Now is this going to correct the problem that when i create a page it automatically gets displaid on the navigation tabs…..????? i wanted to create like 6 pages of articles and all the tabs were compiled on top so the design looked ugly.
    Just let me know so iam sure and don’t mess it up.

  11. @Tim and Ben, I will get a coder to look if he can find a workaround for the pages issue.

    @Ascony, what problems you have doing the change?

    @southafrikense, it is probably some changes you added to the theme, because on the demo version the search function works fine.

    @Mike, I will test, but should be.

  12. Please can someone help me out. I want to replace my current wordpress theme with this one. This theme is really da bomb. I cant wait to have it. Someone please help.

  13. Hey Daniel, Great theme!

    Just a nudge on finding a workaround to get the navigation tabs to display only the pages we want… None of the 3 available plugins have any affect, and I’ve spent several hours trying to tweak the header.php to no effect whatsoever. I can get close, but then the tabs disappear, leaving just the links…

    Tried changing

    but it throws everything out. I’ve never seen ‘get_the_pa_ges’ used before?? Appreciate your input. Many thanks.

    @arin2u — in ‘header.php’ about line 32 look for:
    and delete ‘feed:’ so it looks like this:

    You’ll have to do the same with the RSS feeds in ‘footer.php’ line7:

    “>Full RSS – “>Comments RSS

    Delete: ‘feed:’ in 2 places, but be sure to leave the double quote as is… “>

    You’ll be good to go!

  14. Has anyone figured out how to get tabs to display in this template for only the top level pages (not all sub-pages as well). I have messed around with the header.php file without any luck

  15. great theme 🙂 looks fantastic. I liked the ‘theme option’ to add welcome note. but the feed url at the top is not working in IE . It directs to wrong url. ‘feed:http//’

  16. Daniel, pls answer me.

    1) I want to add a page in the theme, and there I just want to display my most rated, most popular topics names(links), at the center of the page(where we usually write posts).
    I am using some plugins to get most rated,popular article lists.

    2) And I want to display some html and java script codes in between my posts…how can I do it?
    When I post those tags, they just start executing.

    3) And please tell whether to put tag somewhere in the footer.php .I will not do any changes to the theme, until you say it here.

    4) I read your recent posts about new release of WordPress and then wanted to upgrade it.I just copied everything except the wp-content folder.After that I got some data base error.It asked something like connect the data base(I am not sure, what was the message).I just clicked it, and now everything is working good..My old posts are again showing.
    Now my question is– was that the correct method for upgrading word press?

    And finally, thanks a lot for this theme.Its really looking great.
    If possible please include my email ID in your gmail or Gtalk…I want to have a small chat with you!

    Thanks a lot.


  17. Hey Daniel,

    How do I capitalize the first letter for each page I create. Example About, Contact. Everytime I create a new page I’m unable to capitalize the first letter.

    Also where do I add my rss feed code so readers can get my feed.

    Thanks Again,


  18. It looks like the green and orange StudioPress themes are also missing that closing tag. Just thought you’d like to know.

  19. Hey Daniel,
    Awesome themes. Both, this theme and the red one, have a small error…
    In your footer.php file, you are missing the closing </a> tag in your site link, causing it not to validate. Other than that, great themes. Thanks for making them. 😉

  20. Hello, I just installed this theme. I am having 1 issue…all of the new pages I create (like the About section) all load up the home page, rather then their actual page. Can anyone help me? thank you all.


  21. Daniel,

    Thanks for the feedback, when I upgraded my WordPress version I no longer received the fatal error… site is definitely coming along.

    I know this is an ez fix, but how do I add tabs to home page along the top where About us, and Home are located. Thanks again

  22. @Cesar, we will consider adding the changes you suggested, thanks.

    @Dave, it might be related to your WordPress version, are you using an old one?

    @Mayoresan, just go into the theme editor, then sidebar.php, and delete what you don’t want there.

  23. Im using your theme it’s clean and cool!!
    I don’t wanna use category but by default it’s in the side bar!!! 🙁
    how to remove it?

  24. I get this error on every theme I try to use… any ideas?

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: the_search_query() in /home/search4/public_html/wp-content/themes/StudioPress/searchform.php on line 3

  25. Love this theme….how would I change the area that is black in teh header to either a different color OR add a picture banner??? Possible?

  26. OK guys, last question. What i am doing to sxclude the pages from the top is this, i create pages and set them up as a private, then i created a blogroll NAMED Tecnological Articles, of course i have it in spanish but there i created links to this private pages i created.
    My big concern is, are this pages going to be indexed by the search engines or because they are private the search engines do’t see them?

  27. Nisha when you are creating the post you clikc on the icon that looks like a page broken in have. you have to put the coursor where ever you want the text to stop and say READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY> ,

  28. function list_all_pages(){

    $all_pages = get_the_pa_ges ();
    foreach ($all_pages as $thats_all){
    $the_page_id = $thats_all->ID;

    if (is_page($the_page_id)) {
    $addclass = ‘ class=”current_page”‘;
    } else {
    $addclass = ”;
    $output .= ‘ID).'” title=”‘.$thats_all->post_title.'”>’.$thats_all->post_title.”;

    return $output;

    echo list_all_pages();?>

    This is what you are talking about but i try to change the function that shows all the pages and i mess up the page.

  29. Great theme! I’ve implemented it on my web site and noticed that in the footer, the link to DailyBlogTips was missing the closing anchor tag. Without it, the page doesn’t validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

  30. Daniel if i could i would have already done it. can you let me know where ? in what line,,,,,, i have tried differents times and can’t get any thing. If you could tell me where and what tag to modigy….i am not really good at that but i know that if you guide me a little bit i can handdle it.

  31. I also noticed that the plugin works because it excludes the pages from the side bar that i created that is called PAGINAS. I still can manage to avoid everypage created to appear in the top of the desing. HELLLLLPPPP!!!!!>…… that is killing me.

  32. hey Daniel and Sridhar Katakam i just download and activate the plugin you guys told me to do but still, everytime that i create one page, it automatically creates a new tap on the top. i am trying to keep it simple on the top, if you take a look right now that looks ugly with all that on the tabs.
    Hope to hear from you soon. thank.s

  33. Hey Daniel what i have to say might be kind of complicated but try to understand me. Ok here I go. :

    I am using this theme with my domain. And am trying to create at least 9 static pages, you know. I don’t like that everytime that I create a new page, a new tap comes up on top of the design. I am using the WIDGET CALLED PAGES so that I can have all the pages on the side bar under Technology Articles. The only taps that I want to have are News, About, and maybe one more. But that’s it. How can I make it work to the point that everytime that I creat a page I can only put in the side bar and it does not come up on the top, as a new tap.

    Hope you can help me with that men I really love this design.
