Somebody has created a Gizmodo, LifeHacker 2011 theme (template) for WordPress called: Qawker , it is not indentical, but it closely resembles Gawker media theme. With posts in full view on left side and posts with thumbnails on the right sidebar, but without the AJAX of new posts published, and without the buttons for next / previous Headlines, just a “Load more Stories” button . But there is one main advantage, it supports tags and it has a search form.
It has jQuery magic, that gets all the instant loading features working without having to force users to refresh pages.
It also doesn’t have the date and number of comments in the header next to the logo. The graphics of its interface aren’t as smooth as the Gizmodo ones.
This theme was made in 6 hours according to its creator, and it is open-source.
