Update: The NeroClassical 1.1 Theme is compatible with WordPress Version 2.9+
Yeah!… You seen it before, a very dark template made for WordPress, – but this new “beast“, benamed NeroClassical 1.1, is deep down under the black surface, based on the elegant and Search Engine Optimized, free NeoClassical 1.1 theme, from Chris Pearson, with huge Random Rotating Header Images.
See it in action, click here or use the “Theme Switcher” in the sidebar. Like the NeoClassical 2R version, all custumizations from the original template are made through the included
custom.css stylesheet and by adding extra graphics to the
/images folder, which means, that you can savely do future updates of this theme without breaking the design.
What’s the difference?
NeroClassical 1.1 is a free 3 column theme with 2 sidebars at the right side. Besides the visual changes, you’ll find the following features in the NeroClassical customization.
- Moved the default Search-box outside the “Widget-function” in the
sidebar.php– which means you don’t need to add the “ugly” Search-box from the Widgets-collection if you use the Widget-function in WordPress. The default Search-box stay on top in the right sidebar.
- Automatic addition of your page-links in the “Navigation section” of the sidebar. No need to manually edit the
nav_menu.phpin this version.
Don’t do a upgrade of an excisting NeoClassical-based theme with these files, i’ll recommend you to opload the entire
NeroClassical-folder to your
/themes folder and activate the theme the usual way, instead of just overwrite your excisting NeoClassical-files/folders, – that’s just to avoid things to be messed up!

Which style sheet is the one where I can make the whole theme wider? I’m confused whether to change the custom one or the regular one.
It’s too narrow for me. Thanks!
Hey Shelly, Make all your customizations in the custom.css – just copy/paste the parts you want to change to the custom sheet. This way you can allways upgrade the original theme without breaking your own design.

Thanks for the nice modifications to this theme Madzzoni! It was just what we needed. We have just launched the blog. Cheers.
… THX … Good luck with your new website, Russell
WordPress tell me that the file is broken.
@Panda: Which WP version do U use? I just download the NeroClassical.zip theme from here, and uploaded it to a brand new WP 2.9.1 blog and it’s working perfect without errors!
Maybe U use special plugins, then deactivate/activate these.
Or, Try a new download and upload again, it should work OK
I tried downloading this great theme in the danish version. After upload it states the following:
What did I do wrong?
Hej Jeppe, har lige testet pakken og style.css er ok. Prøv evt. at hente den igen.
I’m using the Neoclassical theme but I prefer your header especially the menu. Any chance you could help me to change the header? I’m fairly new to css.
Thanks in advance,
You don’t had to edit NC, – just download the NEROclassical pkg. from here and opload it to your /themes folder as usual.
