Silver blue is a simple minimalistic responsive theme built with elegance in mind. The theme design has been made as simple as possible to allow for easy customization. To add a little bit of variety, the theme comes in 2 different flavors. Due to its simplicty, its easy to change the styles to any other color flavor that one desires.
Silver Blue (Original blue flavor)
Silver Red (Red flavor)
2. Custom Drop-Down menu
3. Well structured design
4. Featured images
5. Elegant look ‘n’ feel
The theme was built and tested for WordPress 3.5.0 and above. Any versions prior to this might not work with the theme. To complete the nice look of the theme, the Pagenavi plugin for navigation needs to be installed. All of the required files can be downloaded from wordpress.org, however, I will also include the files here for convenience and to avoid confusion with changing version numbers and compatibility problems. Follow the installation steps carefully.
Download (wp-pagenavi.2.83.zip, wp-pagenavi-style.zip and silverblue.1.0.2.zip)
1. Download and install the WP-PageNavi plugin (version 2.83).
2. Download and install the WP PageNavi Style plugin.
3. Download and install Silver Blue (version 1.0.2).
Note: if you downloaded the files from here, you ONLY need to install the two above plugins, the changes that the plugins require have already been included in the theme. If you already use these plugins then there is no need to install them again. However, if you downloaded and installed Silver Blue from wordpress.org and want to install the plugins too, then you need to finish installation of the plugins:
Go to Appearance -> Editor -> functions.php (Theme Functions)
Find the two lines
<div class="nav-previous alignleft"><?php next_posts_link( __( '<span class="meta-nav">←</span> Older posts', 'silverblue' ) ); ?></div> <div class="nav-next alignright"><?php previous_posts_link( __( 'Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">→</span>', 'silverblue' ) ); ?></div>
<?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>
