Free WordPress Theme – Tomodachi

This is a very nice looking magazine theme, originally designed by Rambling Soul, called Tomodachi. On the homepage, there are areas for the latest post and an author’s box – where images can be used through custom fields. There are two sidebars, both of which are widget-ready. Native Gravatar (WordPress 2.5+ only) and tagging support is also present within the theme.

And now on to the features in greater detail…

Latest Post Image

On the homepage, you’ll see the latest post displayed at the top, as you see on the demo. This will display an excerpt of the post. If you specify an optional excerpt, it will be displayed instead. To enable the custom thumbnail image, you’ll need to use featured_image key with the image name as the value. The image should be stored in the /featured-images/ directory within the theme.

About Thumbnail Image

The about box content is pulled from your “About” page. These are created automatically with WordPress, so it should look fine on a fresh installation. To have custom image, use the about_image key with the image name as the value. The image should be stored in the /images/ folder of the theme directory. This box is only displayed on the homepage.

Like I said, this theme should work fine out of the box. No plugins required. However if you do need assistance, feel free to leave a message in the support forums or via comment.
