We had to follow a very strict recipe to get Tempera just right. We started with a very solid framework of over 200 settings, added a very light user interface, threw a couple of mobiles and tablets to give it that responsive elasticity, added over 50 fonts, weren’t satisfied so we poured all the Google fonts into the mix, then scattered 12 widget areas for consistency, dissolved a slider and unlimited columns into a customizable Presentation Page then mixed it in as well.
We then sprinkled all post formats, 8 layouts including magazine and blog, powdered 40+ social icons and even blended in a customizable top bar for extra density.
We also made it translation ready and gave it RTL language support for some cultural diversity. The secret ingredient was love and we might’ve spilled too much of that.
But now Tempera has just the right feel and the right texture and is exactly what your empty WordPress canvas needs.
For useful information on theme customization and a list of the most frequent questions we receive, do read the FAQs.
For those of you wishing to achieve more theme customization than what is allowed by the integrated control options, we recommend using child themes instead of manually editing theme files. This feature is pretty well documented by WordPress and has the main advantage of keeping the theme update-able. While any changes done to Tempera’s files are lost on each theme update, a child theme is a separate (partial) theme aside Tempera and is not overwritten in an way.

The theme is available in the WordPress themes repository.
You can easily install it from within WordPress. See our theme installation tutorial for more information.
The easiest and simplest way is to use WordPress’ automatic update functionality to update the theme to the latest version using a single click.
If you absolutely want to perform the update manually, the procedure would be to:
- export the theme settings using the built-in export functionality
- switch your site to a different theme (a Twenty-something should be fine)
- from Appearance > Themes, delete the theme
- re-install the theme (if you don’t remember how, follow our installation tutorial)
- re-activate the theme
- you should find all settings as you left them; if anything goes wrong, use the export you made before to restore the settings
If FTP is comfortable for you, you can also simply re-upload and overwrite the existing files with the latest version.
By far the biggest change this update is the new ‘More Posts’ Ajax button that replaced the pagination on the Presentation Page.

Tempera introduced a new way of defining presentation page columns contents. This new method allows for an infinite number of columns (and hopefully better support for translation plugins).
The new columns can easily grab their content from theme-specific widgets placed in the dedicated widget area, or from specially crafted posts. To learn more… Read the rest

It may seem that Cryout Creations turned into a one man team lately, but the truth is that while Zed has been making update announcements and provided (some) support, Mr. Kay in true creative mind and spirit has been investing almost all time in constructing his latest masterpiece: the Tempera theme.
Currently in (almost) beta state, Tempera is a siamese twin of Parabola options wise but a wealthy distant cousin as features and functionality are concerned. With just a few more things to put into place, the Tempera theme should be released in the upcoming days.
