Yoghourt – Free Wordpress Theme

wp_yoghourt v2.0 – new version release

By jeeremie

I have changed a few things in this new Yoghourt WordPress theme release. It now includes Avatars and tags. Besides, I have fixed a few minor bugs that some of you reportedand I have improved the header which – I must say – sucked! And, most important, it works in WordPress 2.6+.

Download it

Since I want to submit this theme to WordPress theme directory, I had to change the Common Creative License 2.5 for a GPL license.

I really like this design. is really eyecatching and straightforward..

very good !

I would miss a right sidebar to put somemore widgets etc…

many thanks for it !

Very nice theme!

I’ve started using it on my new blog…..

This is, by far, my favorite wordpress them I’ve found so far.

I love the fact that it doesn’t look like a wordpress theme :)


I am using this theme and love it.

I have one small problem with the WP-Syntax plugin…

Using the line variable makes the dashed border shrink to about 60% of the pre container.

I removed the border as a quick fix…

pre {
padding: 1em;
border: none;
/* border: 1px dashed #2f6fab; */
color: black;
background-color: #f9f9f9;
line-height: 1.1em;

Thanks Abe for the comments.

You have the photoshop template for the logo? I need to change the logo.

I wok with Fireworks, not Photoshop. Tell me if you want I send you the Fireworks file.

I’m building site for my club and I’d like to thank you for this theme.

I have one problem with it: after adding recent posts widget all pages have title of the last of those posts.

I think this is caused by page.php: displaying title and edit is not inside the Loop.


Great theme, am going to use it as an interim solution while I learn enough about wordpress to build my own.

I tried to get my logo to fit by eye dropping the background, but it shows a boarder, have you used a subtle gradient? any chance I could have the layered working file for the logo.jpg, if you still have it?

Again, many thanks for what is a beautiful theme!!

If you want to have the same gradient for your logo, make a copy of sb_top.jpg (in wp-content/themes/wp_yoghourt/images/), open it in your image editor (I guess you use Photoshop) and put your transparent logo on top. Slice the image and export it.

hi, thanks for a great theme… i would like to do some changes regarding colors, is there any chance I can get a source file. I use Fireworks too 😉 so png would be great

Thanks again for a great work

I am sorry Perke but I made a mistake a few weeks after I released this theme and the design is all messy. It is unusable. And to tell you how stupid I am, I overwrote the only clean backup I had with this messy design. :'(

sorry to hear that, but nevermind I’ll find my way through

Perke, if you find a way to change colors let the user base know… I love the layout and design.. But really hate brown…

Just to let you know there is a slight problem when trying to view page (not post). The title doesn’t display correctly. In “page.php” you have:

<div class=”post” id=”post-“>

It should be:

<div class=”post” id=”post-“>

Hope that helps.

Well not really. I guess some of your code has been deleted when saving. Could you republish the code but put it within <code> … </code>


Oops, the PHP was escaped. Here it is again.

Just to let you know there is a slight problem when trying to view page (not post). The title doesn’t display correctly. In “page.php” you have:

<!– Start main Content –>
<h1><?php the_title(); ?><span><?php edit_post_link(‘Edit Page’, ‘[ ‘, ‘ ]’); ?></span></h1>

<div id=”post”>
<?php if(have_posts()) : ?><?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<div class=”post” id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>

With this code:

<?php if(have_posts()) : ?><?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<!– Start main Content –>
<h1><?php the_title(); ?><span><?php edit_post_link(‘Edit Page’, ‘[ ‘, ‘ ]’); ?></span></h1>

<div id=”post”>
<div class=”post” id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>

In which browser did you see this problem? I have never seen this bug before.

It’s not a browser problem, its a php problem.

I saw the problem when I created an “about” page for my blog. When I went to visit the page, it should have said “about” as the title, but instead it had a title from one of my blog posts.

This was because the loop was below the “the_title()” tag. Moving the loop higher solved the problem.

Hello, I am setting up a blog in France. I have difficulty to put an image in the sidebar. How can I make the image appear under the category “Author”? I do not where I need to edit the code.
Thank you for your reply.
Please excuse me, because my english is very bad.

Go to wp-content/themes/wp_yoghourt and open sidebar.php in a text editor (eg. Notepad). The code is commented and you will have no problem to edit it. The image is in the folder wp-content/themes/wp_yoghourt/images/.

Bonne chance!

Hi, thanks a lot for the wonderful wp-theme!

Can you show us what exactly differences between old yoghourt and the new one? Because I have already spend quite a lot time to modify the old verison to fit my own needs and I really do not want to modify all the details again…

Happy new year!

I love this theme, so stylish and neat. Is it 2.7 compatible? Will the threaded comments show?

@fh: I fixed a lot of bugs in the new version but I would not be able to tell you what exactly because I didn’t keep an archive of the old one.

@Taryn: It is not 2.7 compatible yet. I will try to work on that as soon as I settle in Thailand and am available.

Thanks Mr. admin for your reply.

Some of my blog readers told me that there would be a very long blank area when they used IE6 to access to my blog. Did you meet anything like this before? Can you show me how to fix this problem?


Hi and thanks for a great looking theme!

Is there a posibility to get the original photoshop/or fireworks files for color customizations? If so, please send them to my email which is enclosed in this message.

Thanks alot man!

Ok… I’m losing my mind. How do I remove/replace the text on the header inteh most recent version? I cannot find it in the code anywhere!

Code is located in header.php. It is all this:

<!– Start Intro –>
<div id=”content”>
<div id=”intro”>
<?php /* If this is a 404 page */ if (is_404()) { ?>
<?php /* If this is a category archive */ } elseif (is_category()) { ?>
<h2>You are currently browsing the archives for the <?php single_cat_title(”); ?> category.</h2>

<?php /* If this is a yearly archive */ } elseif (is_day()) { ?>
<h2>You are currently browsing the <a href=”<?php bloginfo(‘url’); ?>/”><?php echo bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a> blog archives
for the day <?php the_time(‘l, F jS, Y’); ?>.</h2>

<?php /* If this is a monthly archive */ } elseif (is_month()) { ?>
<h2>You are currently browsing the <a href=”<?php bloginfo(‘url’); ?>/”><?php echo bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a> blog archives
for <?php the_time(‘F, Y’); ?>.</h2>

<?php /* If this is a yearly archive */ } elseif (is_year()) { ?>
<h2>You are currently browsing the <a href=”<?php bloginfo(‘url’); ?>/”><?php echo bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a> blog archives
for the year <?php the_time(‘Y’); ?>.</h2>

<?php /* If this is a monthly archive */ } elseif (is_search()) { ?>
<h1>Search Results:</h1>
<h2>You have searched the <a href=”<?php echo bloginfo(‘url’); ?>/”><?php echo bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a> blog archives
for <strong>'<?php the_search_query(); ?>'</strong>. </h2>

<?php /* If this is a monthly archive */ } elseif (isset($_GET[‘paged’]) && !empty($_GET[‘paged’])) { ?>
<h2>You are currently browsing the <a href=”<?php echo bloginfo(‘url’); ?>/”><?php echo bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a> blog archives.</h2>

<?php } elseif (is_home() || is_page()|| is_single() ) { ?>
<h1><a href=”<?php echo get_option(‘home’); ?>/” title=”<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a></h1>
<h2><?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></h2>
<?php } ?>
</div> <!– /intro –>

Depending on what page you are, this code will display a different title. You can either delete all the code within <div id=”intro”> and </div> <!– /intro –> (though, I don’t recommend it) or edit the parts you want. If you only want to edit the title and description for the home page, the code you are looking for is located at the bottom of the code above:

<?php } elseif (is_home() || is_page()|| is_single() ) { ?>
<h1><a href=”<?php echo get_option(‘home’); ?>/” title=”<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a></h1>
<h2><?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></h2>

Nice theme! Thanks

I love clean templates, nice colors pickup, it looks effective.

Excelent color maching.I like this theams

nice theme ! I really like those round corners 😉

I really like your theme. Thanks for making it available! Is there any way you could help me get the code compatible with the new nested comments available on WordPress 2.7? I tried to do it but I’m failing miserably :-)

That’s something I plan to do but it is on hold right now as I am discussing the possibility to improve my themes with another web developer and to implement new ideas such as an options page to change the header from the dashboard and so on. I am afraid you will have to wait at the moment. :-(

Hi, This template is the bomb. However, I am having one little problem; How can I get the “Excerpt” feature to work? I posted a new article and put a paragraph in the “excerpt” field but the whole article still shows on the front page. Any suggestions?

Yes, because I don’t use the the_excerpt() but the_content() so anything you put in the ‘excerpt’ field won’t be displayed on the front page. Instead click the more quicktag button in the visual or html editor where you want to end the excerpted text.

Read the documentation for more info.

Hi – I absolutely love this theme and am tinkering with the colours a bit – I’m a newbie at this kind of thing but it’s working out OK…

One thing I’m having a problem with is changing the background colours on some of the headings in the sidebar. eg ‘archives’, ‘categories’, ‘meta’ etc. all have the brown coloured background and I can’t find it anywhere within the css.

Any chance you could point me in the right direction of where to look/what to change?

There’s an image background for titles in sidebar. Look for “#sidebar ul li h2” in style.css.

Many thanks – that worked a treat.

Another small problem – I’ve got a large logo where intro.jpg is located. I don’t want the blog title to appear there as plain text. When I leave it the blog title blank under wp-admin/options-general.php it removes it, but also removes it from the browser page title.

Is there any way of having the browser title as the blog name without it also putting the plain text over where intro.jpg is?


I ‘m come from China,my English is too bad,pardon me,please.
This is a very nice theme,but i use it find a probleam.If use firefox 3,it’s ok,use IE8 and google chrome visti it,the index will be error,other page is not this error.please look at this link of under:
发件人 Web Quode

everytime i creat a new article my name is jeremy :/

You must have downloaded an oldest version of this theme on another site. Grab the latest version from my site.

I’ve just noticed some huge problems with my blog when displaying this theme in IE6. I’ve been using FF2.0 and it displays it perfectly.

As far as I recall the only thing that was modified were the graphic & bg files…

Any idea?

Hi Matty. I won’t be able to help you if I can’t see your site with the theme. What is your WordPress version? This theme is not compatible with WordPress 2.7+ yet.

Thanks for the reply Jeremy.

Unfortunately I had to change themes as I needed it readable across browsers immediately. I do have WordPress 2.7 installed so that could’ve been the issue.

Hopefully I’ll be able to reinstall it in the future.

hello, I create my first blogg recently and I try apply this template (chocolae-template) on my blogg. this template I can try to apply because I don’t find the the upload file, but I try apply other chocolate-candy template, but in all of them I have a problem with the comments, that I can resolve.

Please help me if you can,

Hi There,

Nice theme! I noticed in an early comment that you’re able to send through a fireworks source file?? is that still on the table??
If so i would really appreciate getting my hands on it!


Hi Reza,

Yes, you can get the Fireworks source file. I will send it to you by email.

A wonderful theme there! Thanks for sharing.

Nice … I am using it !

Great theme, I am using it on my blog now.

One question, how can i get rid of the yellow title link in the header? I know how to change the image, but Id like to get rid of the link on top of it.

Thanks so much for the theme!


Thank you very much for this very nice template. I am using it for my website: http://www.wereldmuziekschoolamsterdam.nl/ . Unfortunately I only tested it in IE8. Now I see it looks awful in every other browser, even IE7. I am using latest version of wordpress. Could this be the problem?


[…] – Firebug – Freemium – Lightning – Notepad – SubtlyMade – wp_yoghourt – […]

For the main navigation, there is a “fix” designated to eliminate the white space between line items in the CSS:

#sidebar ul.navlist li {
display: inline;
line-height: 0px;/* fix the unwanted gap between li elements in FF */

This looks good in FF and IE. However, a space continues to exist in Safari 4. Any suggestions?

nice template.. thank a lot 4 sharing


Love the theme but I am having problems with the 404 error page. If you try to go to a URL that does not exist you get the 404 page with 2 header logos and searches. Someone who commented above has this issue but has not mentioned it: http://jameswestwood.me/asd

How do I remove the “RSS” from each individual post? I already tried removing those lines of code from the “single post” php.

Hi There,

Great theme! I noticed in an early comment that you’re able to send through a fireworks source file? I’d love to get my hands on that, would help me alot. Thanks.



WordPress 2.8.4 and Yoghourt. Why WP shows in RSS feed an excerpt instead of full post even when I check Show full text option (not an Excerpt option)? Is it an error in theme? Everything is OK, when I don’t use (write) excerpts, but… I use them for another purposes :-) . And I have the same issue with 404 page (2 tops totally displaced) mentioned above.


Hello again.

Next thing is that You use h1 and h2 tags for Archives, 404 and so on. What for? It is a waste of great tags and much more work for someone, who wants to change this theme. You really should change them to standard div or span.


Great theme :)

Thanks for it :)

Hello,im french :p
How to put an avatar please ?

Thank you :)

Great theme choice ,just how I like it.

Thanks very much! i am new to wordpress and this site helped me a lot..thanks once again

Is this template compatible with WordPress 3.0.3? I’m updating a client’s site that was built with this template, and of course, WordPress is prompting me daily to upgrade to 3.0.3.


Yes, it is compatible. I am currently running WP 3.0.3 and as you can see it works.
