Custom Blog Theme
Project DetailsAs one of my side projects, I wanted to build out a WordPress theme that could be utilized by personal blogging enthusiasts.
As a regular WordPress developer, I often find themes looking more or less the same. Blocky layouts that use a drag-n-drop visual editor to construct pages. My goal was to develop a theme that was dependant on the WordPress customizer, one that stands out from traditional blogs. The design of the theme was focused on clean typography, white space, and clear usability for all types of WordPress users.
- Framework : Bootstrap 4+, Underscores
- Languages : HTML5, CSS3, PHP, JS
- Project Type : Side Project
The Clear Thoughts theme combined two popular frameworks – Bootstrap 4 and Underscores. I made sure that this blogging theme was easy to customize for users so they can make it their own, without any prior coding experience.
After sharing my theme on numerous social platforms, the feedback was very positive. People loved the design and a common compliment was how clean it felt. For myself, I learned a great deal about theme development using the WordPress framework – Underscores.
