It’s been a long time since I published my last WordPress Theme. Recently I started a new website: No Newz is Good News to share things that are worth sharing online. I decided to develop a new theme.

As so many things are different now, I sought for a starter theme or a theme framework to begin with. After trying several of them, I found Bones and Underscore. Both are great, but if possible, I hoped I could have two more things in my themes which are: Bootstraps and a powerful option panel. I thought it’s impossible to find a starter theme to have all these stuff together, but I met BREW.  Dan Brown was looking for the same things as I did, he didn’t find any, so he created one by his own.

GrayLines WordPress Theme

From Now on all my themes will be released on WordPress Hey.

Gray Lines is the first WordPress theme I created. By the time it was released, there is still no threaded comments, comment page or built-in menu. WordPress’s growing quite fast, quite a lot of features been added, thus I upgraded this theme several times, in this version, I added menu support for WordPress 3.x to make it up to date. Wish you like it.
