WP Theme: “Anarcho Notepad”

WP Theme Anarcho Notepad

WordPress theme “Anarcho Notepad” by Arthur (Berserkr) Gareginyan

Inspired by the idea of anarchy, I designed this theme for your personal blogs and diaries. This theme is perfect for writers and artists. “Anarcho Notepad” can be easily customized. It has been translated to different languages. It utilizes latest HTML-5, CSS-3, PHP and WordPress native functions for creating the awesomeness that looks good on every browser. I’m constantly adding new features to this theme to allow you to personalize it to your own needs. If you want a new feature or just want to be able to change something just ask me and I would be happy to add it for you. I would like to thank you for your support. I’m glad to present you the Most Anarchist WP-Theme Of All! Enjoy!

Externally, the template looks like a Notepad anarchist and is called “Anarcho Notepad” because of my commitment to the anarchist ideology.

This project is frozen because is changed the rules of the publication of the theme in the their repository.

I'm doing everything possible to solve the problem, but I have not enough time to do this. If you have the desire then you can help me in resolving this situation.

Problem is:
REQUIRED: Found a Customizer setting that did not have a sanitization callback function. Every call to the add_setting() method needs to have a sanitization callback function passed.

Because of this problem I can't publish update the theme.

You can try it with the wordpress plugin "Theme Check"

    Is there a way to lighten the wood in the background. I love the look of the wood but would love the option to lightening & brighten the page up a bit. Also, I would love to be able to customize the fonts throughout the webiste… i.e.. blog post title, what is this place text, text widgets, ext.
    Last but not least, is there a way to add an image widget for the side bar? Thanks for all the great work you do!

  2. By jennm323 on

    I love the look of your page. I would like to be able to customize the text in my posts. Is there a way to a add fonts to the posts page. Thanks

    Hello. I love your theme. Is there a way to remove the yellow ‘page’ sticker on the right sidebar area from the front page/post so I can place something else in its place there instead? Thank you!

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Thank you!

      For that you need to remove and blocks in the sidebar.php file and then edit the outer-back-search.png.

      1. By Jen on

        I am attempting to edit the heading ‘pages’ yellow sidebar sticker but cannot find the outer-back-search.png you have described. I want to keep it–it is excellent, as is the theme!–but just want to change the word ‘pages’.

    Hello Arthur. I just started using your theme in wordpress. It is awesome except that I have a minor problem. The posts in “category” has repeated title (i.e. title”>title), while the original title of posts are single(i.e. title). As I can see here, it is not the same case here. What am I missing or did I do something wrong in the setting. I really liked the theme wanted to keep it for a while.

    thank you for such a beautiful theme.
    Version 2.21 is giving me advertising pop-ups when clicking random link on my page.
    Didn’t have that problem with other themes.
    How can i get rid of it or how much is it going to cost me to get rid of it? :(

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      You are welcome!

      The theme “Anarcho Notepad” is a completely free theme!
      Perhaps your site is infected with a virus.

      1. By Taavi on

        Glad to hear that it is free.
        And somehow i got the problem solved by disabling and enabling all plugins.
        Wordpress is wierd :D

          1. By Taavi on

            Hi, the same problem is back again. Are you sure that your theme isn’t infected?
            Scanner didn’t find any malware from my site and the pop-ups only show up when your theme is active.
            I even reverted my webserver back to the time where everything was ok and the pop-ups still showed up.

          2. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on


            :) Yes, I sure that theme “Anarcho Notepad” not infected!
            This theme is located on the repository, so it cannot be infected!

            This issue occurs if the following:
            1) Your website is infected.
            2) You downloaded a theme not from official repository (
            3) One of your plugins make this.
            4) Your website is located on the web-hosting which make this. (frequent case)

        1. By Taavi on

          Thanks for the reply.
          Installed the page on a new host, so far so good.
          I’ll try to be more careful this time :D

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      You are welcome, I’m glad that you love my theme!
      And if you upgrade to the latest version of the theme then you will discover many new and interesting things :)

    This is my first blogging and love this theme, even though this is not ‘responsive’..
    If it’s responsive, it should be the best !

    Hi, Love your theme, quick question for you though. The red ribbon showing the dates for my posts only shows the date and month and not the year. I see your site shows the day, month and year but I can not find how to tell it to show the year. Could you help me please.

    Thank you

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Hi Alan,
      I’m glad that you loved my work!

      It is very simple.
      Theme “Anarcho Notepad” has many options that can be enabled from the customizer. For this you need to go to “Admin Panel” -> “Appearance” -> “Customize”. This option is in the Stuff section.

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      For to set link color to blue on entire all of theme you need to do the following.

      In style.css file, find this block of code:
      #content .col01 .post-inner a { text-decoration: underline; }

      and replace from this:
      #content .col01 .post-inner a {
      text-decoration: underline;
      color: blue; }

    Hi Arthur,
    I would like to help translating your theme in Italian language. How can I do this?

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Hi Monica,

      It’s great!
      You can use the plugin “CodeStyling Localization” for the translation. This is a very good and easy to use plugin. Many of theme users would be delighted if you shared your translation files with the community. Just send the *.po and *.mo files generated by this plugin to me at the [email protected] and I will include the translation files within the one of the next theme update.

    Bonjour Arthur,
    J’aime beaucoup ton thème Anarcho (très esthétique, original, créatif) mais il y a des bugs : on ne peut pas ajouter correctement les réseaux sociaux, en particulier google + : “error fatal” !
    Egalement problème de mise en page : différences entre ce que l’on voit vraiment sur le blog comme lecteur, et ce que l’on voit en tant que rédacteur d’un article (cela rend difficile la mise en page. Ce serait génial si tu pouvais remédier à ces problèmes pour que je puisse continuer avec ce beau thème ! Merci à toi.

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      I’m glad that you loved my work! Thank you for your feed back.

      How do you add the social networks?

      I don’t quite understand about the problem of layout. Maybe you can send a screenshot of that difference.

  13. By EdZee on

    Just want to add that I had made a post in my other blog not using Anarcho-Notepad. The post has an image with Caption and Custom URL but the texts wrap around the image. You may see my post at I hope that my feedbacks help in resolving the issue. Thanks again.

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Hello EdZee,

      Thank you, your feedback is very important!

      Try this, in style.css file, find this block :
      #content .col01 .post-inner p {
      overflow: avto; }

      and change to this :
      #content .col01 .post-inner p {
      overflow: visible; }

      1. By EdZee on

        Hello Arthur,

        You made it! You now have a very nice WP theme. Congratulations! :)

          1. By EdZee on

            I updated the Anarcho-Notepad this morning when I saw the prompt in my dashboard and I wish to report that the texts not wrapping the image is back. I had to do again your advice above to correct the issue. For your information only.

          2. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

            Yes, I know about it. This is so because I need time to test the fix. Fix can affect something else. And the site have a strict rules. Each update is checked by the reviewers for conformance to the rules. Therefore, updates are not released immediately.
            As I wrote earlier, it will be fixed, in one of the following updates (v2.15 or v2.16).

  14. By EdZee on

    Hello Arthur,

    Sorry to disturb you again. I have to bring-up an important issue and I prefer to post it here and not in WordPress forum because this matter was already closed by the moderator without resolution of the problem.

    The issue is about the text not wrapping around an image in a post or page of Anarcho-Notepad. You can see this issue in my post at using your theme. However, in my other post at in the same site, the texts wrap around the image.

    I looked at the difference between the two posts and this is it . . . the image in the one that the texts do not wrap around it has “Caption and Alternate Text” and pointing to a “Custom URL” while the other one that displays correctly (texts wrap around the image) points only to “Media File”. The issue also showed in my “Introduction” page but I already corrected it by removing the “Alternate Text” and “Custom URL”.

    I am not a techie so I do not know what is the problem. Could it be an issue with WordPress 3.9.1 and not of your theme? I will test my other WP blog that uses a different theme and see if it has the same issue. Again, thank you very much for the attention that you will give to this matter.

  15. By EdZee on

    Hi again, Arthur. May I make another suggestion? Can you please add a “Translate” plugin in this blog? “WP Translate” and “Bing Translator” are good choices if they already have your native language. By the way, what is you native language so I can use a translator on my own in the meantime? Thanks again.

    Sorry, I was using an email address that’s different from the one I used for this post but this is still me.

  16. By EdZee on

    Hi, Arthur I begin to use your Anarcho Notepad just very recently. May I request that your “Pages” at the top of the sidebar be made to show the Custom Menu instead of the blog pages. You may opt to retain the “Pages” label but I suggest further that it be made “Menu” or “Navigation”. Thanks a lot!

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on


      Label «Pages» on the sticker is a part of the design. Theme “Anarcho Notepad” created with the look of notepad, so all posts are written on the “pages” of notepad. But I will think about change the label of sticker again.

      Thank you for your feed back.

      1. By EdZee on

        Hello Arthur,

        Thank you for your fast reply and for considering my suggestion. I understand that the “Pages” sticker is part of the design and not a widget. I modified to show the Custom Menu, all new pages will also automatically show if the option is chosen in customizing the menu; hence, your purpose will also be served. My purpose in requesting for the change is for me to be able to show also the “Categories” in the sticker and for better control of what to show in there.

        Again, thank you and I have to say that I love what I am seeing so far in “Anarcho-Notepad” theme.

        1. By EdZee on

          Hi Arthur, I had just checked my blog and saw that my request is already done. Thank you very much. “Anarcho-Notepad” is really a great WP theme with a very supportive creator.

  17. By zuzzanna on

    Thank you for looking into this :) There are a lot of space on the sides for this.
    And I love this theme ♥

  18. By zuzzanna on

    I am new to this WP thing and have tried multiple WP themes. Right now I have your theme installed.

    I have a request though, since I post a lot of pictures, would it be possible to make an option were one can choose to make the template wider, so the pictures shows larger, f.ex. 800 pixels
    and still keep the right sidebar? Without editing any HTML I my add :)

    Здравствуйте! Очень крутая тема. Спасибо. Я только учусь делать сайт на WP, и меня интересует такой вопрос, я создал страницу с шаблоном Author page, но когда я ввожу текст и публикую, то на странице сайта ничего не отображается. Не подскажите что я не так делаю? Спасибо.

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Здравствуйте! Я рад тому, что вам понравился мой труд!
      Шаблон “Author Page” (author.php) не предназначен для публикации какого-либо текста. WordPress использует его для автоматического построения страницы с краткой информацией об авторе и архиве его записей. Это похоже на шаблон архива но только для одного автора на сайтах с несколькими авторами. Но сейчас этот шаблон видимо не работает. Буду его исправлять.
      Для создания страницы с информацией о себе вам нужно использовать стандартный шаблон “Default Template” или “Page without date” для страницы без красной ленты с датой.

        Thanks Arthur,

        unfortunately, i didnt get an head way with this. I was actually trying to create an rss to email on and it still didnt work. and when i even tried to validate it, i got this error message below;

        ‘Server returned timed out [help]


        An error occurred while trying to validate this feed.
        Possible causes:
        The address may be incorrect. Make sure the address is spelled correctly. Try loading the feed directly in your browser to make sure a feed exists at that address.
        The feed may be temporarily unavailable. The server may be down, or too slow. Try again later.
        The validator may be busted. If the feed exists, the server is fine, and the problem is reproducible, let us know on the feedvalidator-users mailing list.’

        Please i will appreciate your help again. its quite urgent. Thanks much.

      Hi, Gloria!
      I’m glad that you love it!
      I was on your website and there comments is OK. I can see the comment form and the comments too. Can you give me more detail about the problem?

    Hello Arthur,

    I love your theme. Is it possible to put photo under ‘What is this place’?


    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Hello, Sebastian!
      I’m glad that you liked my work!
      Yes, to do this go to “Admin Panel” > “Appearance” > “Widgets”. Here you need to place the photo in the “Sidebar Area 2″ using the widget.

    Добрый день! Отличная тема. Спасибо. Скажите, а что делает “Enable page navigation” в Customize/Stuff?. Эта опция ничего не меняет на страницах. Чего следует от нее ждать?

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Добрый день!
      Я рад тому, что вам понравился мой труд!
      «Enable page navigation» – эта опция включает улучшенную (в виде цифр) постраничную навигацию на главной странице. Такую навигацию вы можете наблюдать внизу главной страницы этого сайта.

    With last update of theme design of my blog changed. What happen with it? Why did you change it? Now title of my posts are on the left and date of posts are without that red mark. How to downgrade my theme?

      1. By Aleksandar Obradović on

        It’s OK now! Thank you a lot! I just saw another problem… Below my site title now tagline is not completly visible. Only upper parts of letters are visible. Can you teach me how to fix that? Before last update it was working great!

          1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

            In this part of the file style.php :
            .site-title {
            font-size: 300%;
            line-height: 0.8;
            margin: 0;
            text-align: center;
            position: relative;
            padding: 58px 0 10px; }

            Replace 58px to 38px

  28. By Alex on

    Сам шаблон не выводит заголовок в тег title. Этот тег пустой после обработки в РНР.

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      В теме используется стандартная WP функция wp_title()
      В таком виде:
      < title>< ?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?>
      В теме «Twenty Fourteen» используется такой же код.
      Этот код выводит пустую строку в том случае если в качестве главной страницы задана произвольная страница.
      Для исправления ситуации codex WP предлагает такой хак:
      < title>< ?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | < ?php is_home() ? bloginfo('description') : wp_title(''); ?>

      Я обязательно исправлю это, а пока вы можете в файле header.php заменить
      < title>< ?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?>
      < title>< ?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | < ?php is_home() ? bloginfo('description') : wp_title(''); ?>
      В теге title уберите лишний пробел.

  29. By Alex on

    Я там имел ввиду тег title. Похоже комментарии его вырезали…

  30. By Alex on

    Я обновил тему до последней версии и открыл код страницы. Там, похоже, есть проблема с выводом заголовка в . Ибо в коде написано , то есть заголовок просто не выводится из шаблона.

  31. By Лёха on

    Ваша тема супер. Подскажите, как убрать полоску, которая идёт после футера? хотелось бы, что на серой полоске сайт заканчивался, и бэкграунд не был виден. Спасибо

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Тема уже настроена таким образом, чтобы серая полоса прилипала к нижнему краю окна.

    Как включить заголовок окна на главной странице, а то там показывает только адрес сайта?

    1. By Arthur Gareginyan (Post author) on

      Мне уже сообщали о такой проблеме. Но мне не удаётся повторить этот баг для того, что бы найти решение для исправления. Например на главной странице этого сайта такой проблемы не возникает. Я постараюсь исправить это в следующих обновлениях.
