After following along with the previous two tutorials we’ve done, your 2014 theme has new colours and it’s a bit wider. Well there’s one more thing I like to do to make things nice and clean! Let’s match up the new colours and the new width in our post editor!
We spent yesterday figuring out how to get rid of all the green in 2014 and set up a new colour. I like the looks of that, but there is still one more thing bugging me. I’ve had several posts over the years about the same thing. I don’t like how narrow things are in the theme! Well, here’s a quick fix to change that!
So now we have twenty fourteen in place and I have a child theme started. Of course you remember we always use child themes when editing a theme, right? If not, have a quick read of this old article. It was written back when we were on 2010 but it’s just as relevant now on 2014! Our child theme is set up to pull in the default CSS usnig the @import code, so everything looks the same. I’m just not a huge fan of green, so here’s what I did!
Ever since VoodooPress launched, the goal has been to provide you with some fairly simple tips and tricks for getting your site running how you want! Part of that comes from always running the latest default theme and customizing it a bit to show you how it’s done. Sure we sometimes do more complicated things here, but the simple things are really important, especially for newer WordPress users who are looking to just do some minor tweaks. So here we go, 2014 is in place, look for some child theme tips coming soon!
WordPress 3.8 has just been released and I just finished my upgrades, how about you? I know I haven’t been around much on VoodooPress, a newer job and school have been keeping me insanely busy. I just finished my thesis and have one more class left at school – then I hope to keep things up to date here! But I have been keeping up on WordPress just a bit, and 3.8 is looking pretty sweet!
