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