Dark Mystery also contains a Forum-like Comment Structure. Each unique comment inside a post is designed to look just like a discussion board bulletin post, complete with its very own unique jquery-powered quoting and signature system. Signatures are automatically dynamically created by using Wordpress’ “Website” field when responding to a post. Dark Mystery grabs the URL of the commentator’s website and displays the title of the particular page inside each signature for a unique CMS experience.
Jquery has a heavy presence in this theme. It is used in the following instances:
- Dynamic Homepage Slider. Easy to use and manage slider written in jquery and powered by Wordpress’ Media Library and the EasySlider plugin.
- Dynamic Dropdown Navigation. The primary header navigation is split into four sections: Pages, Categories, Tags, and RSS Feeds. Clicking each icon reveals a list of each section’s contents.
- Unique Homepage Hoverboxes. The set of “recent posts” on the homepage includes a hoverable list containing three “link boxes”. These “boxes” each contain the recent post’s title, excerpt, and “Read the rest”, separated by Wordpress’ unique <–More–> Tag.
- Unique Homepage Tabbed Interface. Dark Mystery gives access to a set of three tabs that is configurable through the theme’s options page. Owners can have whatever information they wish there (i.e. contact info, a welcome tab, etc.).
- Forum-like Quoting System. Dark Mystery offers Wordpress users and commentators a chance to respond to others’ comments by “quoting” previous comments. The script borrows the text of whichever comment you’re quoting, automatically converts it into the HTML required, and places it inside the comment reply box.

All Themes are Powered by the Engipress Framework
What is the Engipress Framework? In laymen's terms, it is a collection of code, classes, and functionalities all in one place that provides both users and theme owners a better Wordpress Experience.
Built-in Theme Options
With an Object-Oriented Class-Controled theme option system powered by the Wordpress Settings' API, Engipress Themes are given a wide variety of potential, easily managed, backend theme options that give you the user complete control over your theme.
Powered by another Object Oriented PHP Class, all Engipress Themes come with several useful shortcodes. In addition to immediate shortcode availability, they are automatically added into the Wordpress Editor for one-click user convienence.
Custom Functions and Conditionals
Anyone familiar with moderate theme development likely knows what Wordpress Conditionals are and the various amount of functions and template tags at their disposal. The Engipress Framework includes even more useful bits for developers to use, for example, breadcrumb navigation, or subcategory conditional checking.
Powerful Code Standards
With the emergence of Wordpress 3.0, many new features like Menu Navigation, Custom Post Types, and Widgets allow the user to do more and save time. Engipress recognizes the power behind these functionalities, which is why it includes them wherever necessary.
As themes are routinely updated for maintenance, and new features get added to the framework, all Engipress Themes run a script that allows for instantly obtaining their latest versions, all within the click of a button.
All themes powered by the Engipress Framework are Hand Coded from Scratch using Notepad++ and contain CSS Tableless Layouts. Before theme release, every theme goes through a quality control check, which includes XHTML and CSS Validation, and cross-checking the theme in all major browsers, including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari.
