Not really a fan

I've changed the Theme since I didn't like the result. It's kind of plain.

Nice theme overall, but i found it hard to customize later when i used it on my blog how to start a blog, it is also limited with sidebar widgets size.

Structured data missing

The template is missing 'author' and 'updated' hatom structured data

Tema muy simple y sencillo
By , for WP 3.9.1

El tema lo tengo puesto en mi web y es muy simple, lo recomiendo para bloggers principiantes. La carencia que le veo es que no puedes poner widgets a los lados de la columna principal, que es donde están las entradas.

everything is good, but couldn't find favicon placing option.

Tricky theme for developers

Twenty Thirteen is not a simple theme to work with if you are planning to use it as a base for customization with child themes.

Main issues to me, so far:

  1. Header image
  2. Header image is set to a fixed size, it gets chopped off for mobile devices. To get around this you'll need to re-write the custom header function and its styles.

  3. Main navigation menu
  4. Default theme style for main nav uses display:block-inline for ul li elements, creating gaps between them. You'll have to optimize the html render, deleting whitespaces and breaks to eliminate the gaps. Check the Output Otimizer plugin, it does the trick.

  5. Footer widget area
  6. Masonry sets a fixed width for footer widgets. If you ever want to use more than 4 columns or justify any number of columns for the footer, editing the theme styles won't do it. Another instance where you'll have to cut through scarce documentation and obscurity to edit simple CSS.
    support thread on the masonry js script for footer widgets

Twenty Thirteen's wireframe is a very nice, well thought and clear layout of the html boxes, but looks can be deceiving. A no-brainer theme to be used as default, but a heck of a challenge for customization.

Best theme ever!!
