Ionic – New Builder Child Theme Released

Just in time for Builder’s first birthday, we are launching a new child theme. Our designer, Brad, is always cooking up awesome designs with the user’s needs in mind. For this theme, we ditched the standard vertical blog page in favor of columns. This provides another unique style to the power you are used to in Builder.

Here are a few of the features of this new theme:

  • Columnar Blog Index Page – Not every blog page has to look the same. Now you can spice up your site with a new blog layout.
  • Re-sizable Featured Images – We loving using WordPress’s featured images. It is a great tool that they have built in, and we want to utilize it whenever possible. The problem is that by default, they won’t regenerate existing images to match your featured image size. In Ionic, you can re-size your featured images all you want, and never have to re-upload the images.
  • jQuery Hover on Featured Images – Another slick affect to make your site stand out.
  • Alternate Module Styles – This theme comes packaged with 2 navigation styles and 3 html module styles.

For all of our current Builder and All Access Customers, you can download this theme right now in your member area. If you are new to Builder, but like this theme, check out the Builder purchase page. From right now until December 31, 2010, you can get Builder plus ALL of its child themes for only $79. That’s almost $50 off the regular price.


  1. Professor Benjamin! Could you do a webinar on this theme? You mentioned in the Blueprint Magazine Webinar, that Ionic was like a magazine theme – so – It would be a great bridge for someone whose head exploded halfway through the Magazine webinar – which, by the way, was a great webinar.
    It would be so helpful to see you do a Blueprint or just a short webinar walking through Ionic, especially using featured images.
