Old Paper WordPress Theme

I really like this newly released theme (Old Paper). Not enough to buy it, obviously, but there’s a lot to appreciate just in the demo. Which you can check out here.

I think the yellow #ffcc0d and the blue #2c3e50 go really nicely together, and the yellow being used on the moving parts is particularly effective.

The CSS on the widget titles is also pretty cool:

.widget h4:before {
position: absolute;
width: 100%;
content: ' ';
height: 7px;
border-bottom: 1px solid #ffcc0d;
border-top: 4px solid #ffcc0d;
left: 0;
bottom: 5px;
box-sizing: border-box;

.widget h4 {
color: #ffcc0d;
margin-bottom: 15px;
text-align: center;
position: relative;

.widget h4 span {
background: white;
padding: 10px 20px;
z-index: 1;
position: relative;

I’ll definitely be using this on something in the future.


As I’ve just found from trying to implement this, make sure that you have <span></span> tags in place on the widget title in when you register the sidebar. Should look something like this:

		'before_title' => '<h4 class="widgettitle"><span>',
		'after_title' => '</span></h4>',
