Tempera 1.0.0 brings preset color schemes

Days long gone
Days long gone

It’s that time again. It’s the moment one of our babies turns into a grown-up. Gone are the days of pushing the stroller through the park, of learning how to tie ones shoelaces, of tooth and belly aches; long forgotten are the days of wiping carrot soup off of puffy cheeks or those smelly, messy potty training sessions. No more breast feeding for this theme – this theme’s all grown up.

Tempera’s been thrust into the real world and it will stay there whether it likes it or not. It’s now surrounded by other grown-ups and while it’s definitely going to have a hard time at first, I’m sure pretty soon Tempera will be searching for a job, a place to stay, a room mate or two, maybe even a significant other. Tempera will have to make some tough decisions in the near future, one of which will probably be choosing what it wants to do with its life.

But all we can really do now is sit and watch, hoping that all we taught it up until this point has left its mark on young adult Tempera. We, Cryout Creations as its parents and all of you guys as thousands of  caring aunts and uncles have done our best to point out all its small flaws and help fix them, as well as praise its skills and help elevate them further.

This is not the end of the road, Tempera’s just switching to another lane – a faster one. And like the caring, loving parents, aunts, uncles and distant cousins that we are, we’ll be right here, supporting it through life as much as we can, making our youngest kid shine!

16 Preset Color Schemes for the road

And while Tempera gets ready to board the high speed train called “Life” we fill its backpack with a handful of fixes and improvements for the road. We also fill all its pockets with all the color schemes we can think of so that it will be prepared for anything and everything. And just so that it won’t forget about us, we also make a list:

  • added 16 preset color schemes (all color schemes from Parabola plus 2 new ones!)
  • added an option for editing the space between the menu and content and another option for editing the content’s left-right padding; you’ll find both options under the Graphics Settings
  • further enhanced the Presentation Page responsiveness (mostly the columns)
  • fixed header background color setting not applying properly
  • fixed the slider’s left & right arrows visibility on dark backgrounds
  • fixed ‘More posts’ loading gif animation not showing on dark backgrounds
  • fixed top bar full width/site width options not working properly
  • fixed HTML5 inputs display issues
  • fixed Google fonts not working when extended sets were declared
  • added Persian translation
Tempera Theme Tempera is a free WordPress theme, created by Cryout Creations, that is responsive and extremely customizable. For more info check out the theme's page.

    I really, really love Tempera!!!! The only question is how can I add a color bar across the bottom of each page? I have tried “Adding Media” but the artwork shrinks and I am unable to enlarge it to it’s original size. Thanks in advance for your help!

  2. I have just uploaded this to my website as needed something that worked out of the box! I am using it with Buddypress and have found a few problems with the compatability any chance you guys could write a plug in or a part which we can activate if we have buddypress?

    The main problems were with the buttons which I have corrected with CSS… if you go into inspect element on the buttons you can see all of the changes I had to make… 😀

  3. I selected the Tempera cause it looks how I want my website to look. I give it an A for editing simplicity except for where do I find where I can edit the pictures on the middle-home page to add my pics and content? I’ve been looking everywhere for the edit panels.

      You need to activate the theme to access its settings page. Our themes do not employ a frontend configurator (nor suport the WordPress configurator) due to the very large number of options.

    Very beautiful and extremely easy to configure for the most part.
    And it’s free too, unlike way too many WordPress themes.

    Worthy of premium support consideration.

  5. Hi there!

    I’m an admin over at OrchardParkFire.com, and we’re having a little trouble with our header image. Was wondering if I could get some help? The image is fine on the left, but goes off the screen on the right. I can’t seem to find anything on my issue, and no methods I have found seem to work! Thanks!

  6. Hello

    First of all thank you for this beautiful free theme for wordpress.

    I have a question : I want to use the Cryout Column widget. Is there any way to make them align automatically at the center of the page , because right now as it is , the immediately float to the left side of the page. If you do not have enough widgets to fill a line it does not look good.

    Thank you for your time.

  7. It is great,
    Just had some queries.
    1. Can we add any plugins or widgets of real estate in tempera.
    2. Can we add search real estate widget in the main presentation page.
    3. how can we show spread sheet on a specific page.
    4. when u add widget in, it comes on all pages, is it possible that all pages work separately on each page.
    5 how to add a post.on presentation page.

  8. Hi and thank you guys (and dolls) for this fine theme! BUT: with v. 1.0.0 i encountered one problem: the theme seems to be broader than before, leaving “white stripes” on both sides of the slider-graphics on my presentation-side. can i solve this issue by myself or do i have to wait for the next update?

    Hi Kay, I have one concern about a submenu with children on the main menu. It displays with the same color background as the main menu and not the color of the submenus. If I update tempera, will this be fixed, or do you know of how to fix this.

    Other than that, this is one of the best themes I have encountered, thanks guys.
