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
By ,

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.

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.

Love the simplicity of this theme
By , for WP 3.8

Simply put,I love this theme. It is so simple that is one of the most user-friendly themes out there. This is how themes should be: non-annoying and just letting the content shine. It is also very easy to customize and touch CSS,so I can't see any flaws.

Clean, neat and nice typography
By , for WP 3.8

Twenty Thirteen is a clean, minimalistic theme which in my opinion suits the majority of non-professional blogs. I particularly like the typography, simplicity and it is also html5 optimised, so it is a good choice. I have been using it for a while in my blog Habilidades sociales and I even prefer it to Twenty Fourteen, although it is a personal opinion.

Overall, a good all-rounder theme.
