My Diary - Handcrafted WordPress Theme

My Diary is a two column WordPress theme inspired by Karen Cheng’s wordpress theme, the WordPress theme is aimed at being a personal blog, sort of like a personal diary. It was designed with simplicity in mind and uses the Brandley Hand ITC font as standard. The uniqueness of this theme lies in its ability to display image of the specific day automatically according to the date the post is written, thus giving it a hand crafted touch to it.

The Photoshop file for the header is included in the download. Don’t know how to use Photoshop or don’t own it? No promises, but I can edit the header for you and give it your site name and slogan.

My Diary theme is compatible with:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Opera Browser
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Apple’s Safari.

On that little fly icon and credit in the footer, go ahead and remove it if you wish to, I have no quarrel over it. Customize the theme as you like, after all, you paid for the domain name and hosting, right?

Version 1.2
Version 1.1
Version 1.0

    Thanks so much for putting up these great templates. These are so much better than so many out there.
    Can I ask one question. Is there a way for me to center the MyDiary template on the page?
    Thanks again for all your hard work.

    Hi :) I’ve just installed this on my website and would like to further discuss with you some things about it — would you mind if we have a chat over e-mail? I don’t feel comfortable posting my questions here.

    Thank you :)

    Hi, how do you align the whole layout to the center, and maybe put a background? I don’t know much about using the theme editor, so I thought you could help me out.

    Thank you so much,

    I downloaded it, everything is fine except for the days of the week that do not show up. Any chance you know how I can fix that ? Cause this is just why I chose this theme !!!

    Another question : i’d love to center the whole thing instead of having it on the left. Same, if you know how to, I’ll be grateful.

    Thanks a lot !

    A wonderful Theme. I’ve always searched something like this!

    I changed the header to my own design. But I’ve a problem with the comments. Unfortunatly I can’t see the comments… something isn’t working.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks a lot
