Ipseity Personal Branding WordPress Theme


“Personal Branding” is extremely important in today’s digital economy. Knowing how to effectively manage it is equally important, if not more so.

What most people forget is that the moment you’re born you begin a journey of digital-equity building whether you like it or not. (You can thank your parents for that in some cases…!)

The question is whether you will take control of it… because if you don’t someone else will (or the masses).

I decided that I’d rather manage it instead of the social media landscape that could do whatever they wanted with it, for better or for worse really.

So, I bought JohnSaddington.com (site has changed, link to DEMO below) and just sat on it for awhile, but I wasn’t sure what I should do with it.

It looked like this for a while:


Obviously it couldn’t stay like that. At first I thought I should purchase some ready-made website (like GetNectar.com who was an obvious inspiration but will set you back 200 bucks or so… but they do have some amazing other versions and flavors!) or off-the-shelf app or theme. … Bleh. I knew I could do better for free.

So, I set out to develop a WordPress theme that would help do that in a creative and attractive way. I wanted something simple, elegant, and super easy to change as my brand changed. I wanted it super light weight, memorable, and had elements that mattered.

I also wanted to make it readily available at no cost to my friends, family, and many others, especially in today’s economy.

I’ve had a lot of friends laid off recently and as they search for jobs and as businesses/recruiters/HR managers review their credentials and use Google to help find the “real” you (hopefully they don’t find the MySpace picture of you half-naked and piss-drunk) wouldn’t it be nice, I thought, if they found YourName.com instead with an attractive and impactful first impression?

Right. You get the picture.

So the Ipseity Personal Branding WordPress Theme was born.

Ipseity Personal Branding WordPress Theme

“Ipseity” means selfhood, or individual identity. I couldn’t think of a better name for the theme (and I wanted something original).

It’s powered by WordPress, it’s super light weight, around 150kb total file size (without background images), only 3 .php files, 1 .css file, and 2 essential .gifs (the arrow keys), and a js folder for the side-scrolling action.

It’s also easily styled with H1/H2/H3 tags and you can add images… heck, you could even make it a photo portfolio with style!

I’ve included a few backgrounds for inspiration as you can see as well as a few screenshots of how to control the styling. It’s pretty simple and straightforward.

Here are some examples:










How To Manage Ipseity

ipseitywordpresstheme11I made it super easy to manage, update, and change.

Each section is just a single blog entry/post.

Yeah, it’s that easy.

I’ve even included “dummy data” for you to import into your WordPress install so you can get started even faster.

picture-11The following images show you how it all works (there’s not much…).

If you want to add images like the last example, just make sure that they are 940 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall to fit perfectly into the theme.

The theme is pretty strict in terms of width, so I wouldn’t deviate from these dimensions, unless you do something like a much smaller image for a bio image.

Again, you could have an all-image gallery for your personal brand or portfolio.

Mix it up with alternating images and text.

The sky is the limit here.

To manage the actual text, I’m just using H1/H2/H3 tags for the main title and copy below.

The regular “paragraph” text is available to use as well, of course.


And finally, to change the background, just change the following name of the file in the “images” folder:


Ok. I’m Ready. I Want To Download It!

Here you go. Have fun and tell others!

Please feel free to comment and leave examples of your personal brand site using Ipseity! It’ll help other people visualize what others have done with the theme and the possibilities. Think of it as a community activity.

Again, feel free to leave your thoughts, comments, and “improvements”…! And let me know if you use it! I want to see some kickbutt examples!

Oh, and one final thing: If you need a cheap (but good and legit) host to get a new .com website, check out this deal I’m sporting here with Dreamhost.com!

  • spencer

    great stuff. this is a really sexy, smooth theme to use.

    i'm wondering also if there's a way to make a specific page be the blog updates. it looks like the one drawback of using this theme is that you lose the having a blog. it'd be cool to include that without making the theme too busy.

    also, i'm having some trouble with the link buttons.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/human3rror human3rror

      try downloading the theme again. i fixed a few things.

      • Steven

  • http://www.intensedebate.com/people/supermoonman Steven Rossi

    Hm, unless I'm doing something wrong, I'm having trouble with those js buttons. On a fresh install of WP, I'm not able to get the pages to turn. I even uploaded your dummy content to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong on that front. If you're curious, my site is <a href=”http://stevenjrossi.com.” target=”_blank”>http://stevenjrossi.com. It currently looks a bit like your site, that is, only the first post of your site. I'll keep fooling with it, though.

    Edit: Now that I look at it, I noticed that all the links on the page do a weird flashing thing that also makes them unclickable. I tried it in a couple different browsers, and it did the same thing. It's probably some really obvious problem that I'm just overlooking.

    Edit 2: I have no idea why the link in this comment to my site won't work.

    Thanks! Finally found a background image I can be happy with for awhile (at least for 24 hours I'd guess). It might be cool to integrate an auto-rotator for backgound images. Throw all images in the folder and have the theme auto pick a random one.

    I also added a link to the admin login page to the template so that I can edit without manually typing in the http…./wp-admin/ URL manually.

    Also, being the avg. non-reader, I scanned your directions above and assumed the 940px wide specs were for the background image. The 940px is for a photo to be displayed without cropped by the arrows right? And the background is 1440px wide I believe, right?

    This is awesome.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/supermoonman Steven Rossi

    I threw some php in there to pull the first post separately from the rest of the posts so that I could apply individual styling to the first post.

    Also, I lean towards the SEO camp that holds to one h1 per page, although I'm not too strict about it. For that reason, I applied your h1 styling to the h2's in every post except the first, so that there's consistency in design while the code keeps the important stuff distinguished.

    Just some thoughts for you…

  • jasonclarke

    Is there any way to use this as a front-end for an already-existing blog? I've got a long-standing blog at my domain (jasonclarke.net), and I'd like to leave all the posts there and continue to use it as a regular blog, but it would be fantastic to use Ipseity as a front-end gateway. Does anyone know of a way to move the root of the existing blog to a subfolder (jasonclarke.net/blog/) for example, without messing with the permalinks for existing pages, and then use Ipseity at the root of the site? Or is this idea just silliness?

    The only thing is that the left arrow button don't work in Internet Explore but will in Fire Fox. I'm going to wait and see if there is a fix for this before I do anymore to it. I noticed that some others wanted to set it up like I have this one set up in earlier messages. All I did was set up wordpress in the root directory and then rename the index.html to something different likr slide.html so that the Ipseity theme would come up when you pull up your site, then point your blog or what ever to the new name, like slide.html or blog.html this way you don't have to create a different directory unless you have many web soted like I do.

    Couple of thoughts …

    I think it would better if you made it so you can use wordpress pages rather than posts for the content. Also use the page titles for the H1 tags rather than asking the user to format it themselves. Also maybe ad blog functionality back in if one might want it–I understand this would require quite a bit more theme design work but I'm pretty sure a lot of people are gonna want that.

    the blog post should have some dimensions… and make sure you have the right version.

  • Andy McMahon

    Hrmm. I love this theme… But I am having a few issues.
    the arrow buttons are not showing up..
    Back button doesn't work (Firefox back button) if you've clicked left or right.
    what size image do you recommend?

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/outdoorliving Aaron

      The readme file John provided with the theme has the picture dimenions in it. (I don't know what they are off the top of my head since I'm on a different computer.) You can check there to get the size you need.

      And about your buttons, are you using a black background? If so, the buttons are black and transparent so they won't show up. I reversed the colors on my version. You're free to steal them, if you'd like:


      You'll need to either overwrite your current buttons or save them in the same directory and change the filename in the source file. (All that's assuming that you can't see the button because of a black background.)

      BTW, the backspace key won't work because the page scrolls using Java. You're not actually advancing to a new web page when you click the link…

I just re-added the latest release just to be sure. It's still not working. I see where you recommended image sizes for a picture in a post.. but not for the actual background image, and I don't see it in the read me either. It's ok though, I'm sure I can figure it out. I apologize if I'm making this more difficult than it really is. (I really am not completely clueless. ha)

          1. The URL for your name is wrong. You're missing a "." between "www" and "ts-whatever…" :)
          2. I looked at the source code for your Ipseity install and see what you're talking about. I pulled the URL for your images out of the source and threw them into the browser to see what would happen:

          I receive an error:
          "The image “http://www.4tsi.com/macadvantage/wp-content/theme… cannot be displayed, because it contains errors."

          Not sure what's up with that, but try over-writing those with these:

          See if that works?

          What do you want for your background? Do you want to tile an image or just have a single image?

          • Andy McMahon

            hrm. crazy thing. If i put the images on picasa and put the link in the code, it works fine.. must be dreamhost or something.. (Which appears to have my site down for right now… so.. ) I guess I can just use picasa to pull the images..

            • http://intensedebate.com/people/outdoorliving Aaron

              Don't use Picasa to host your pictures for your site; Leave them on your website.

              Not knowing what's going on with that server (which I verified is down right now), it might have something to do with these images not displaying correctly (or not). My final suggestion at this point is when the server comes back up to save these images as jpegs and replace the png link in the code with the new file name and see what happens. (Although using Picasa seems to indicate the problem is with your server and not your browser, etc.)

              • Andy McMahon


                Yeah, I went ahead and tried the .Jpg thing before I came here. (Shoulda mentioned that too) DIdn't work.. Maybe when the site comes back up, we'll be golden.. Maybe. ;) I imagine we'll find out soon if that works or not. If not, I can easily submit a ticket. I had noticed earlier on another part of my site *.gif image wasn't showing up. perhaps this is all related.

      I'm probably completely wrong and you might have already tried this, but does it work if you disable the plug-in that form uses?

        “disable the plugin”…? i don't have one here…

        • Billy

          Zak does. I know it's probably a long shot, but my guess is that the form plug-in he uses doesn't play nice with the theme. That form has a few other problems anyways. For example, it doesn't seem to want to show a submit button in IE. The submit shows up in Chrome but it still throws the same scripting error resulting in the navigation being broken.

    2 simple updates for Ipseity theme.

    1. On lines 40,42 of of the theme's style.css this appears:
    "position: left;"
    This is invalid CSS. The fix is just to delete this. It doesn't change the appearance, but it makes it fail CSS validation.

    2. Inside the theme's header.php:
    <script src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/js/swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    But the theme doesn't include any Shockwave Flash, so this should be deleted for quicker load times.

  • David Jones

    A suggested update to the Ipseity theme's style.css. Add this:
    div#mid { margin-left: 80px; }

    Without this change, … when you resize your browser window (and make it narrow)
    the post displayed in the middle slides underneath the left arrow.

    This small change fixes that problem.

        No, not really. Posts are Uncategorized, without tags. Structure is (as you suggested) h2, h3 and then p. Also the theme files were left unchanged (except for my name in the footer but that’s clearly not the issue here…).

        You see, the arrows are where they should be, so it must be something with the posts. But, b checking the source code on the live website, it does match yours… weird

      • http://www.matteostarri.com Matteo

    Hi, when I saw this theme I was instantly dragged into making my own personal branding site. This theme is very original and clean.

    I have made my site with custom background, fonts and little adjustments, that made Ipseity right for me. Unfortunately it is just for me and like 20% of the Internet – others are using different resolutions, that are messing with it.

    My theme is designed for 1280×1024 http://imgur.com/EFu0X.jpg
    And here it how it looks on 1680×1050 http://imgur.com/BNNJ8.jpg

    Is there a way to make this work? I really want to use Ipseity. I have tried my best to do it myself, but I have failed to came up with something reasonable.

    Thanks you H3 :)

    • John

      Hey buddy!

      Changing the css to center and stay put would be one way of doing it.

      If you did some photoshop on the image and faded the edges to black, that would be easy too, just make the background black as well for those that have super-large monitors.

      the theme folder needs to be just “ipseity” not “ipseitywordpressthemebyhuman3rror3″ … upload via ftp.

      • http://bdrhodes.com Brandon

        thanks, John! Now I just gotta get the arrows working… right now its redirecting to a blank page, with the url being a repeat of itself… like so: http://bdrhodes.com/bdrhodes.com Odd.

  • Joal Hos

    I have been using Ipseity on my site for a while but have noticed a couple of orientation errors with buttons and the fact that the content doesn’t center. Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks and love the work!

    The theme is not working, it doesn’t slide…..it says this:

    Not Found
    The requested URL / was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

      after disabling all plugins it worked.

    great theme, just installed and tried it. It worked fine for couple of days, but then the scrolling function stopped working. It seems like it’s tryig to call “www.muspired.se/muspired records” (the part after “/” being the page title) instead of “#1″, “#2″ etc. Don’t know how this happend, just found it this way after a few weeks.

    Any ideas?

      Check to see if you have Jetpack installed on your WordPress installation. I had the same problem as you, but once I deactivated Jetpack, the theme worked again! Good Luck

    Great theme, but I can’t get the URL’s nice. The permalinks don’t work in this themee?

        Thanks for the suggestion, but I don’t have Jetpack.
        Any other ideas?

  • Jacob Musselman

    Love this theme! And it’s a great way for me to get started messing around in wordpress.

    Now for some final tweaks, and then on to the next project. (as if projects really end or stop coming)

    Thanks for a great Theme!

    I´m writing to you because I have a problem that it seem like you guys know how to fix.

    I have installed the same theme. But when I do my next post (that I want to slide in using the arrow, it “overwrites the first post, and shows the new instead. I have read the intire blog, but could not find some real answers to my problem.

    Do any you know how to solve the problem?

    You can try visit my website: http://www.hphoue.dk

    As you can see the arrow are working, but it can´t show the next post?

    Looking forward to hear from you.
    All the best

    This is the most awesome theme I have ever seen!!! You have made my WordPress dreams come true!!!

  • edwin

    where do we download .003? I used the download link off Tentblogger.com and it gives me version .001, which has the scroll button problems with IE. Can you point me to where I can find .003?

    Thanks a ton, and great theme!

    Not sure if it has been mentioned, but the ‘jetpack’ plugin breaks this theme.

    A quick and easy fix is to disable Gravatar Hovercards.

    To do this:

    Enable the plugin as normal and link to wordpress.com as prompted. You will then be presented with a list of modules, click ‘learn more’ on the ‘Gravatar Hovercards’ module. This will make a disable button magically appear, click this and the theme should be working again.

    (i’m sure there is something thatcould be coded, but, hey its an easy fix!!).

  • Matt Gordon

    Well thats strange, it now works in chrome, but not IE!!!!?? Sorry

    Skip ^^^ that then!!

  • Matt Gordon

    Well I found the issue, it turned out that I have had issues with IE for a short while, and completely unrelated to above. Anyway looks like the previous fix did sort it.

    NB: The ‘extra’ IE issue was down to a previous version of flickr manager, I disabled it and now IE works too.

    Couldn’t see this in the comments above.

    Is there a way to alter the address bar URLs to match the post titles? As opposed to ”#2″ or “#4″ etc.

  • http://www.smallengineering.com hj


    I am doing up a simple website however, I am still experiencing all the issues as above. The arrow is not working for the first posting and it keeps coming back to the first posting regardless of left or right on any posting (other than the 1st). I have tried installing and reinstalling the themes but it does not work. All the error messages from the uploading above like Brandon is still there for might.

    I am running on the latest WordPress version. Could that be the cause? Not an experienced wordpress user. Please help if you can! :)

  • http://www.smallengineering.com hj

    Yeah! I found a solution to the arrow. Its just changing the number of posts that your blog can see at any one time from 1 to any number you want. :)

  • http://warddem@gmail.com ward

    I really love the theme, X-cellent work.

    Ist there a way to make a link on the first pages that slides to another page when it is clicked (my javascript is a bit rusty)? I went over this site and comments but didn’t find an answer.

    Thanks again for your outstanding work,
