Hello! I just came up with a new theme. Nothing fancy. No images. No galleries. Just plain old text. It looks like a blog design circa 2005. One thing for sure though, it’s fast since there’s not much overhead. This theme is based on the _s framework, a good starter theme kit developed by the WordPress development team themselves. How about that! If you’re interested in learning how the WordPress theme is constructed, download the underscore theme and study its code. You’ll be surprised what you’ll see. You’ll learn quite a bit by analyzing how this theme is constructed. Anyways, I think it’s time to revive this old crusty blog. It’s time to breathe some new life into it. You are probably asking, “where have you been?” Well, I’ve been concentrating on all my other blogs for the last several months. I just didn’t have the cycles to maintain this blog among all the other web projects. So maybe, a new theme will jumpstart the old blog. We shall see, indeed!
A new year, a new theme, a new framework, a somewhat familiar layout, and the same old background. The new theme is based on the Genesis framework by StudioPress. I’m using a child theme called News.
The new theme should be more flexible when it comes to layout and functionality. The Genesis framework is quite robust. The framework has a plugin called Simple Hooks that makes it easier to make theme customizations.
Overall, I’m still learning how to work with this framework works. The concept is a little foreign to what I am used to, but I like what I have done to the theme so far.
I hope you like the new theme.
