This is something that has been bothering me for a while now, so I thought I’d ask for some comments.
WordPress has a series of default themes in which I prefer to call the ‘Twenty’ series. The one I’m currently using is called ‘TwentyEleven’. It is the default theme I used since I established this blog, and it has been easy to work with so far. It was until recently that I got a comment suggesting that I get a different background. So I looked into the options and found the ‘Dark’ theme option. This changes my blog to the appearance you guys are seeing right now. Personally, I really like it as well.
Now, a few days ago, WordPress just released its new version of the ‘Twenty’ series; ‘TwentyTwelve’. Of course I was hyped to try it out. There are a couple of interesting features I wanted to use on this blog, namely the smart phone readability and the special homepage only templates.
With that theme, the blog’s appearance will adjust itself to the device the reader is using to view it. This is extremely good for people who are viewing this blog from an iPad or any other smart phones. The special homepage template also allows me to customize a home page that helps explain about my blog better too. I thought that was kinda neat.
However, I was saddened with the fact that TwentyTwelve has no ‘Dark’ theme option. This means that I am stuck with the white background and black text if I use that theme. I did try looking around the appearance options of TwentyTwelve, and I just don’t see the Dark theme option at all. I have no custom design upgrade, so I cannot really adjust my blog’s appearance much outside of the Theme Options.
Since I got a comment saying that white background doesn’t look very good, I am just going to stick with this appearance until TwentyTwelve has a theme option (doubt it, lol). Or if you like, you can suggest me a theme that you think would look good and I would look into it.
