Cutline Theme Under New Management

May 4th, 2007 · 66 Comments · Site Updates

As many of you are aware, Splashpress Media has acquired a number of blog properties recently, one of which is the Cutline Theme for WordPress. Special thanks to Chris Pearson, who was the creator of this great theme…

Moving along, I would like to introduce myself as the new Cutline WordPress Theme manager. My name is Brian Gardner, and I am a freelance designer as well as blogger. I have written for Performancing, have designed themes for sites such as Daily Blog Tips and have released a number of free WordPress themes.

In the near future, we will be adding a few neat things here at Cutline, so keep your eyes open and watch out for what’s to come. We will try to do our best to answer the comments that are left regarding the theme, and apologize if we can’t get to each and every one.

I’m excited about Cutline Chapter 2!

    I tried to modify Cutline theme and have not been successful. I added the element that i wanted it to affect but it doesnt do anything. for instance, i wanted to change the widget’s appearance. i tried to remove the solid line above the titles but nothing happens. or just change the background color. i did this;

    .custom h2 { background-color:#00CCFF;}

    but nothing is affected. what am i doing wrong?

    Is there any support for this Theme any more? If not, can any user shed light on my problem above?

    Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

    Have also found that Cutline doesn’t seem to permit much tinkering eg use of widgets.

    Pity. It seemed to have some promise.

    Just wondering if there is a support site or forum for this theme since it seems to have some unique tweaks that many other themes don’t. I’m specifically interested in finding out why my header image (I took out random headers) only appears on my main page and not on any others. I’ve worked with several templates and themes, so I’m not new to this but this one has me stumped!

    Anyone have an URL for assistance with this theme?

    from diconstructing the site, it seemed that the css is coming from another server other than the installed site on my server. i just redirected all css to my server instead and manipulated the css. so im good now.

    I’m a noob. I’m using Cutline on I am trying to use the child/parent page function, but can’t find a way to navigate to the child. Is this only available in the self-hosted version of wordpress?

    Thanks for your help.

    I’m having issues with WP 2.6 and centering images with the Cutline theme. Is anyone else experiencing this?

  • Chris W

    The Add Media function of the editor adds the class “aligncenter” to the IMG tag when asked to centre the image. CutLine uses “center” to do its centred, bordered images. Perhaps that is where the difficulty lies?

  • Jacque

    Nice idea. I went into the html and changed align=”aligncenter” to align=”center”.

    After saving it changes it to align=”alignnone” and it left aligns.

    Any more suggestions? I’m willing to try just about anything.

    Jacque: Took this to the forum.

    Hi Brian — sorry for the late welcome, and thanks for the new additions. Any quick link for a resource that shows one how to change background colors and add a footer to Cutline for WP?
