  • Resolved Chuck


    I’m starting to think that the Twenty Eighteen default wordpress theme is a hoax. It’s May and no theme. I don’t think twenty ten’s theme was this late. If it’s real, which I doubt, it’s gonna be a flop. Hopefully I’ll be proven wrong. That is crap though, the wait. I’m frustrated and upset. I was really hoping for a theme for this year. 2017’s theme is overused, good but overused.

    Currently there is no word on a Twenty Eighteen theme in development, so it’s not a hoax, it just doesn’t exist. 🙂

    The only official mention of a Twenty Eighteen theme was here:

    Has there been any discussion about Twenty Eighteen theme? No plans as of now for Twenty Eighteen, likely not enough time to start and finish by end of the year anyway

    If there is any news involving a Twenty Eighteen theme, it will be handled out in the open at

    Meanwhile, there are 5,764 free themes to choose from:

    Just a theory, but perhaps the 2018 theme will be released when Gutenberg becomes official. It’s pretty likely we’ll see that release this year and it would be kind of awkward to have a pre and post Gutenberg 2018 theme. Just my two cents.

    There was some discussion about Gutenberg to be accompanied by a new default theme that embraced it. That’s pretty much what all default themes have done, fully embraced the new features of their release, so it does seem like a strong possibility.

    Before the 2018 theme will be released, there will be an open discussion about the development of it in the Core community:

    The 2018 theme is not the focus at the moment, but do stay tuned and do get involved with it. It is important that we learn from the pain-points of the 2017 theme.
