Support » Theme: Twenty Sixteen » Styled to death

  • I switched from theme 2012 to 2016 because, at last, a menu that works “hover – click” with a mouse and “click – click” with a touch pad. All I wanted to do was reduce the vertical white space in the headings, have a minimalist style and have the heading use the full width of the browser window.

    Hah, that was 4 weeks of pure hell. The style.css file in my 2016 child theme is more than twice the size compared to my 2012 child. When you are are adding letter-spacing down at the <h4> level I’d suggest you are wasting your time and ours since, imho, 90% of people will want to remove it. And, who came up with that damn border around the browser window, that took up A LOT of wasted hours.

    I will be going live later this week on Twentysixteen and I think it looks great.

    But, I give only 1 star because, in my opinion, I think the implementation team needs to go back to square one and this time build it with us – the people who implement the theme – in mind. i.e focus on the basic functionality, flexibility and stability and not go bananas with the styling. You should make it easy for us to change the styling to our client’s wishes whereas in 2016 you have done exactly the opposite.
