Do not adjust your screen. I am experimenting with a new look for the blog. With the release of the Gutenberg editor (which I love so far, and about which I will have more to say in a future post), I am giving the Twenty Nineteen theme a try–a theme designed specifically for Gutenberg.
What I like about this theme:
- The large, clear font for the main paragraph text–the text you are reading right now.
- The clean, minimalist look of the page. It seems ideal for posts that contain a lot of text, rather than a lot of media. As my posts are mostly text, it seems ideal.
- The seamless way the theme integrates with some of the new editor capabilities.
- The way the Featured Image is displayed when looking at the individual post.
What I don’t like about this theme:
- The lack of a header image when looking at the archive pages. It seems to minimize page identification.
- The way the widgets are only accessible in the footer instead of the sidebar–although I am more than willing to make that tradeoff for a clearer, easier to read screen.
In any case, I figure I’ll try this theme on for size for a little while, making an adjustment here or there. If you’d got any thoughts on the look of the new theme, let me know in the comments.
