Blueberry for Sandbox

Blueberry is a style for the versatile Sandbox theme. It was also my entry in the Sandbox design competition that was run in July-August 2007.

Blueberry is not a theme itself, but a skin for the Sandbox theme. This particular design was my entry in the Sandbox Design Competition. The parameters of the competition were that it was a pure design thing, you couldn’t mess around with the php code of Sandbox. Only CSS and images, which sure makes things a whole lot simpler.

Live Preview

A full live preview of Blueberry is available here at the Sandbox competition site.


You will find the download link at the top right of this page.


Installing Blueberry is really simple. Note that you must have Sandbox installed to use Blueberry, if you don’t have it you can get it here.

  1. Upload the sandbox-blueberry folder to your Sandbox folder in wp-content/themes/.
  2. You will need to edit the default style.css file that comes with Sandbox, so that it loads the Blueberry skin. to do this replace everything after the header in the default style.css with:

    @import url(‘sandbox-blueberry/style.css’);

  3. In your Wordpress admin, go to the presentation tab and select the Sandbox theme.
  4. Enjoy.


If you have any questions about Blueberry just leave a comment or even better head over to the support forums.


Themes don’t design and code themselves, they take precious time to build, test and support. So if you use and like pipeDream, or any of my other work, please consider a donation, the link it at the top left of this page just below the download link. All donations are greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi Dean!
    I saw this design on the sandbox competition site and I just loved the llayout coz for a while now I’ve been looking for a theme that would be appropriate for my site, I’ve been thinking of “wordpressing it” so to say but I don’t know enough to actually design my own themes. It’s a very simple website so I think this theme, with a couple of changes of course, will be just perfect for it. So I was just wondering if you would be interested in helping me out with that…
