Polaris 0.1

For a long time, I have wanted to create my very own WordPress theme. However my graphic design and code abilities are nothing to brag about…for real. So I have always been more interested with tweaking other great WordPress themes like Kubrick since it was far easier to do.

I have started work on my own flavor of a WordPress theme called Manji. Say hello to Polaris 0.1 (a flavor of Manji).

Why that name? I happened to be listening to the Jimmy Eat World song with the same name and I thought it sounded pretty cool.

This is going to be a live showing off of this Manji flavor. What does that mean? Every change I make will be instantly uploaded onto this site and be put right into use. Why am I doing this?

  1. I’m sick of the old way my blog looked like and I have no patience to wait for a completed redesign.
  2. I think it would be pretty neat to hear from others on how Polaris is looking as it progresses.
  3. I’m bored.

So with that, check back often as Polaris gets refined and updated. I am working on a project page for Polaris, so you can check there for more information as I work on it and when its done, download the entire flavor for free.

Changes in Polaris 0.1:

  • Changed masthead.jpg to a custom one.
  • Changed background color to blue
  • Removed some borders around the masthead
  • Added site navigation links
  • Changed text color in posts to black
  • Did some inital work on the footer
