I decided to create my own blog (Do Expert) and was looking for a good theme to use. I spent three days looking at various options (must have looked at demos of 100+ themes and actually tried 10+ themes) but I finally decided to go with Tempera just because it covered all the requirements. It has customization features that are generally provided by premium templates.
A big thumbs up to the developers!
Hi WordPress Community,
Can someone kindly help advice me. I have created a header banner 1150 x 100 pixels for my website http://www.goodclasshomes.com
I am using Tempera template.
On the computer the image displays nicely. But when I check on my Samsung handphone, the header is distorted. It stretches to become a bigger size.
What do I need to do to ensure it stays the same?
Appreciate your advice.
Thank you :)
One of the best free themes I worked with!!
One of the best FREE template I know!
Very easy to install & understand & use.
Too good to be free.
Very flexible and a lot of options helping to achieve a deep customization. These guys are great also in supporting.
I've tried my best to design my small business website without the help of a professional designer and I did manage a decent website, but something was off with every theme I tried and I could only fix so much with little CSS knowledge.
Tempera lets me change pretty much everything I'd like to change, just via the options page. It's simple and idiot-proof. I can adapt it as much as I want. Everything is explained via short mouseover texts. You can even change the distance between the main menu and the content, change every single colour - things that (so I figure) you usually can only do with the paid version of some free themes.
Some things you can do:
You can choose fonts and font size for everything from normal text to widget titles, colours for every text and title and all the different background colours, exactly which data will be shown above your posts; you can have it show two rows of posts instead of just one, etc.
Btw, at least the German translation is very good (I don't know about the others).
I wanted my website to look professional - not too cheap, but not over-designed either (don't want to scare my local customers away, in my field you don't have fancy websites). So I just left the slider disabled, and the presentation page plus overall layout & design still make it look professional.
Could've saved myself a LOT of stress if I had just chosen this theme from the start (and I'm talking about WEEKS of trying to get it right).
I am really impressed with Tempera. Thank you so much to Cryout Creations for a clean theme with lots of configurable features. The documentation is a bit sparse tho, so I wrote a page with my own tips for the Presentation Page and Header images at
The other big plus for me is that Tempera works really well on iphone and ipad. My first WP website is based on Twenty-Fourteen, which is supposed to be a responsive theme, but in reality it came up quite short on iOS. SO I am very happy with Tempera.
Love this theme. So many otions in the theme options.
One of the best free themes I worked with. Easy menu, plenty (maybe the most Ive seen) customization options. And the Presentation page takes HTML therefore can be made into anything, almost :).
