INDEZINER Paper Wall free WordPress theme for Smashing Magazine


Paper Wall is the first wordpress theme released by INDEZINER and was created especially for Smashing Magazine. We created this theme as a challenge for us to see if it will be accepted for these great guys and in this way to receive a moral rating.

We have created the Paper Wall theme as an alternative to any classic wordpress theme from before.

Idea for design is our daily working desk. As designers we always put things on paper. We draw elements and organize our activities mostly on a simple piece of paper. A designers desk is full of writing instruments and sketches and this is why we tried to bring the same layout online.

We want to give to people the possibility to be able to simply enable this theme from wordpress theme editor and everything to work just fine. This is why we did not build a lot of features or personalized this theme too much in the idea to be simple to use. This is why it is very flexible with any standard plugins you may install in the future.

We enabled couple sidebar sections: pages, themes, archives, categories, blogroll and meta that can be easily managed from widgets section in wordpress admin. But, even so, this is not an ordinary theme. We created a really cool and easy to modify design that gets very flexible in the hands of a custom designer also. Main theme elements are: header, footer and sidebar. All these can be changed or have design modified easily and you can personalize your theme as you want.

Header menu is updated automatically with pages you create from wordpress admin and so is the footer.

We used a plugin styled for pagination WP-PageNavi. Using it is optional and replaces simple wordpress pagination with a numbered fancy one.

We were inspired by: webdesignerdepot and webdesignerwall design style.

    I want to use this great looking theme but it won’t work with the Shadowbox plugin. First I thought that it wasn’t working right because of the missing footer tag in the footer.php file but after adding it still didn’t work.

    Hey guys, after I applied the theme to my blog, the search box doesn’t work anymore (can’t click or type anything in the search box), is anyone else having this trouble?

    It seems like the wordpress default search box still works if I add it to the widget sidebar, but the one from the theme doesn’t work, can anybody help me with this problem?

  31. Dan Hansen says:

    When tryin to center align on pages, it does not do it. It keeps it aligned to the left!

    Align to the right does not work either!?

    html tag:
    text center aligned

  32. Dan Hansen says:

    Didn’t show the tag – trying again!

    p style=”text-align: center;”>denne tekst er centreret./p (with on both sides of the P)

    Hello Guru, what entice you to post an article. This article was extremely interesting, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this subject last Thursday.

  34. Dan Hansen says:

    Update! If i write a lot of text.
    Then the center and right is working.
    If only a little bit af text – then it is not working.

    Can u help me understand that!?

  35. Dan Hansen says:

    Found it!
    to make the align center, left, right formatting work in pages, I just removed the float:left tag from the .post-page variable in the stylesheet style.css.

    Then it formats the correct way.

  36. TRying it for my foundation.. let’s see… hope you can advise me along the way..
