Oh My Gosh, My Ghostbird Child Theme

I’m happy to announce the release of my first free WordPress theme, Oh My Gosh, my Ghostbird child theme. It’s a Tumblr-style theme good for microblogging. Although I made some free WordPress themes before, those were specifically made for some of my blogger friends (2 of them). This one is different because it will be availabe for everyone and it’s also a child theme.

It’s been a year since I first worked on it, on and off kaya inabot ng hundred years. Few months ago, just when I was about to release it, I’d see bugs, or I’m thinking of something else to add. I also made it as responsive as possible.

In order for you to use Oh My Gosh, you have to install its parent theme, Ghostbird. Ghostbird is a free one-column theme for WordPress developed by Michael Fields, Theme Wrangler at Automattic. It has flexible width, custom background, custom header, custom menu, post formats and is translation-ready.  It’s also the same theme I am using in My WordPress Playground site.

Why the name Oh My Gosh, you may ask. I first thought of naming it My Ghostbird but one time I made a typo error ‘My Goshtbird’, so I thought of naming it Oh My Gosh, just like my fave expression. 🙂

Features Added on Oh My Gosh:

  • Post Format Icons (Tumblr-like)
  • 6 Color Schemes
    Oh My Gosh Theme Options Color Schemes
  • Responsive
  • Right Sidebar (Version 2)

  3. Wow! Sana meron akong talent to do themes. Tumblr themes na simple HTML/CSS 48 years na inaabot ko WP theme pa kaya. Thank you for sharing 🙂 I would love to try this one pero nasa tumblr kasi blog ko but this theme is really nice hanggang live preview lang ako, hehe.

    • Thank you Angie, matututunan mo rin yan kapag mas pinagtuunan mo ng pansin. Inabot din ako ng 100 years dito. 🙂

  4. Very nice job on the theme. It looks very elegant and all the different colour schemes complement it nicely.


  5. Hi, long time not coming here.
    Tumblog style + responsive + 6 Color Schemes = Cool!

    ps: Personally I never header of Ghostbird theme, but definitely should give it a try. I personally suggest you to dev child themes for more popular themes/frameworks such as genesis/thesis as there are hundreds of thousands of people using them. 😉

    • Hi Affan, thanks for the visit and for your suggestion. I’m also thinking of developing child themes esp for Genesis, I still have to learn it. I’ve downloaded free genesis child themes a few weeks back and see how it works.

  6. The first time I saw this, walang sidebar, pero ngayon meron na.
    I’ll try this on my other blog. I’ll tell you later kung anong blog yun. 🙂
