Pistachio Theme

It’s only been 2 weeks since I launched wpguy.com, but I’ve managed to design and develop my first free WordPress theme!


It’s called Pistachio (?), and these are some of the features included:

  • 3 Columns
  • Unique icons
  • Widget ready sidebars
  • Gravatar ready
  • Separated trackbacks and comments
  • Author comments highlight
  • Archives page template
  • Compatible with WordPress 2.3 and up
  • Valid CSS and XHTML


To install the Pistachio theme just follow these easy steps:

  1. Unzip the pistachio.zip file.
  2. Upload the resulting pistachio folder to the /wp-content/themes/ directory of your WordPress install
  3. Log into your blog admin and go to the Presentation > Theme area
  4. Find the Pistachio theme and activate it by clicking on it’s thumbnail
  5. That’s it, enjoy!

    Nice theme, very simple and great for blogging that focuses on content (like most should be). Looking forward to seeing your next theme.

    Do you have any updated version of this theme? It looks beautiful. Please update this theme and why no new post since 2 years?

    Hi, we’re a wordpress specialist from the netherlands and we are also wondering if this theme is still ‘in production’?
