MistyLook 3.6 for WordPress 2.5

MistyLook 3.5 works perfectly fine with the latest WordPress 2.5, of course all of my other themes work fine as well. Today I am releasing the 3.6 version of the MistyLook for all of you with the following changes. Fully Internationalized for easy translation Well, as I was telling you about “What it takes to internationalize a theme?“, I mentioned about Henrik’s work on the version 3.5 of the MistyLook theme.



I took his work as a basis for the new version and so 3.6 of MistyLook is fully internationalized for easy translation to any language. Support for Gravatar As WordPress 2.5 supports Gravatar by default, I took the time to add the necessary code to the comments.php and the style.css file to natively support Gravatar when used with WordPress 2.5. The theme would still work fine in previous versions of WordPress as well. Footer Links This theme is no longer a sponsored theme, but it has two links in the footer.


One for the theme link at and the other link pointed to [the website you are reading right now]. The License Info for the theme remains the same. Support for other Languages Danish Translation file, done by Henrik, is ready as of now. I still need volunteers for creating language specific .MO files for other languages. Please get in touch with us, if you can help us in this endeavor. – See more at:

    Wow, until now I translated MistyLook each time manually.
    Thank you for MistyLook – a great theme – and the internationalization of MistyLook 3.6.
    However I didn’t yet succeed making my translation working. First of all I installed poedit. Poedit complained about 2 duplicate definitions in mistylook.pot. After fixing that I created mistylook.po and with my translations into German. I copied into the active theme folder. My wp-config.php file contains the definition
    define (‘WPLANG’, ‘de_DE’).
    Nevertheless MistyLook 3.6 is still displayed with English strings. Where is my error?

    @Kevin, You should be able to copy the stylesheet from your version and use it on the MistyLook 3.6. It should still work.

    I’m using version 3.5 of your theme at
    due to recent things I read, I prefer to remove the meta generator tag
    which is automatically added to the theme by wordpress 2.5 core files.
    I looked around & found i can remove it by adding
    remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘wp_generator’);
    into functions.php , which I’ve done on other themes.
    I’m afraid the misty look functions.php is too complicated for me to add it.
    Where & how should I add the above line?

    I’ve uploaded it to my blog and will have it “open” for public view soon.
    Thank you for a beautiful piece of work. It truly sets the tone for my site.

    Great theme. Thanks.
    I’m trying to change the header image by using url(img/header.jpg) in the #headerimage in the styles.css, but it won’t change, even if I use an absolute url.
    What’s with that?

    Hi! You haven’t included all english text to gnu-gettext tags. Only major part of the theme will be translated. Are you going to fix this issue in your upcoming updates?

    I just discovered that you’d updated Mistylook (a mailing list would be nice, maybe, or perhaps if WordPress could let you know the way it does with plugins. Just a thought). I have just implemented this plugin for email, via SMTP: –since I needed to use a separate provider for email from my web hosting provider. It works find for comments but it doesn’t work with the contact page. I’ve disabled that page for now. Is this fixable? I’m using WP 2.6.2. Cheers, EW

    How do I change the header Image in the Misty Look ?
    The selector #haderimage in the style.css is not used.
    The source code shows a local style definition and ignores style.css:
    #headerimage {
    background: url( no-repeat;
    How do I change this?
    Thank you!

    Awesome work. I’m moving MistyLook from ( to my hosted site. However, the MistyLook 3.6 picture and background color are different, darker, than what’s on Can I use the same image and background color on my own site? How? (I can edit DHMTL, CSS, etc., so can I download the old version and merge the image with 3.6..?)
