Why do the Default WordPress Themes Always Suck?
By , for WP 3.8.1

Why can't the default wordpress themes be simple, basic css structures that all US to customize them.

1. They need to allow css elements to inherit their styles. For example if I set the a link color at the beginning of the css file I shouldn't then have to go through the rest of the css file and change it 20 more times.

2. The default twenty fourteen theme has a black side bar on the left using the :before selector. When using some basic css tools like IE's dev tools that element can't be selected and identified. I've been building web sites for 13+ years.....if it takes me more than 30 seconds to identify an element like that.....its too complicated. I wasted an HOUR trying to figure out where that was hiding.

3. Media query's should work and be kept simple. The twenty fourteen theme has a min-width which doesn't seem to work. I've always seen this as a max-screen width....why the change?

The bottom line. I end up charging clients an extra 5 hours (which is never enough) to build wordpress sites because of these bad themes. Its NOT reusable code. Default themes should be reusable and quickly customizable. I shouldn't have to spend HOURS sorting through them and deleting the vast majority of the settings.

Constant Issues
By , for WP 3.9-alpha-27111

I've never gotten the theme to load correctly. Not a single time.
I've posted in the community, asking for help, and didn't get a response.
Sidebars constantly got borked, things overlayed and went crazy. No matter what I did, it looked like crap. I'll stick with Twenty Ten or Twenty Twelve. I LOVE the idea of Twenty Fourteen, but with the inability for it to work right for me, I just can't use it.

Useless for non-photo blogs

I can't see any use for this unless you use lots of large images.

Very limited for newbies
By ,

This theme is very limited for newbies! No automatic excerpt, no settings to choose alignment and no full width (as it meant to be). Very bulky design, looks awful on my iPad 2. Audio post format is great addition, but THE player is very poor.

No me gusta/ Dislike
By , for WP 3.8

El tamaño de letra no me guste, es muy pequeño. Además, queda feo que el theme esté alineado hacia la izquierda, quedando un espacio en blanco a la derecha.

Esta vez, WordPress me decepcionó...

******English****

The font size I do not like, it is very small. In addition, the theme is ugly is aligned to the left, leaving a blank space to the right.

This time, I was disappointed ... WordPress
