Wry was designed to be a clean, minimalistic theme with maximum readability for long passages, such as if you roleplay, post fiction, or simply write extensive entries. The 100% Easy-to-Read Standard was a big inspiration (even if the theme may not meet the standard completely).


› Styled comments pages
› Fluid width
› Optional modules in footer
› Nav bars hidden until hover
› Clean and lovely web fonts
› Tested for community use


  1. Read my Terms of Use. By continuing installation, you are agreeing to full compliance with these terms.

  2. From the Select Journal Style page, choose one of the themes for Five AM. (I used "Early Edition," but in theory any should work.)

  3. On the same page, scroll down to section 3. Choose a Page Setup and select 1 Column (modules at bottom; no sidebar).

  4. Click Customize Selected Theme at the bottom right.

  5. On the Modules tab, select your desired modules for the Main Module Section, if any. These will appear at the bottom of the theme. Also make sure that Navigation is selected and under Header.

  6. On the Custom CSS tab, deselect "Use layout's stylesheet(s)" (there should be NO CHECKMARK), paste the code below into "Use embedded CSS" and save.



If you decide to use this theme, I'd love to know, and would particularly love to see it in action if you care to link the journal! Please feel free to ask questions about this theme in the comments to this post. I created this one quite awhile ago, but I will do my best to dive back into the code and get you an answer.

Please note: The main navigation is located at the bottom of the page: Hover over the dark gray stripe to access.

Change Log:
26 JUL 14 - Removed the new "module jump link" that DW added in the last code push. If you don't want to replace all of your code, please just add this to the very bottom of your CSS: #module-jump-link {display:none}

15 AUG 17 - Updated the header title so that it's the proper color now that it is a link

Love the simplicity... been looking for something like this. Thanks so much! :)

May I ask if there's a simple way/place to edit the layout so that the header links to the main page of the journal? I've been looking all over for it, but I'm not sure if I missed it or if there's just no way for me to change that.

Thanks again!

Ah, I suspected that might be the case after looking at the code and knowing it wasn't something editable via CSS. I snooped around the layers, but I didn't even know where to begin looking. I was holding out hope on there being some kind of module I can just activate, but I guess not! Thanks very much for taking the time to reply though - at least I now know to give up. :P

is there anyway to make the font in this layout by default, one size smaller? I love that it big, but its a little -too- big for me. For example, when I use <small> html tag, the font size is perfect!

Ooh, I'm looking for a new theme and I think this is the front-runner! I also really love the main theme for [personal profile] bakesale - is there any chance you'd put that one up for grabs? ♥

Hi! I love this. Is there a way to make the entry subject title and date/time line up with the left side of the entry? I'll probably steal the above tutorial for making the entry text a little smaller to go with it since it's my preferred aesthetic.

So glad there's a more muted grey/silver tone layout! So much of what I find is either white or black. 8(

Using! Credit in my profile info. Thank you so much! :)

One question, though. I would like to add a couple of tiny icons for DW users and communities, but I'm not sure what to edit/add to the code. Would you be willing to help a gal out? ;)

Thank you!
