Cool Theme

Just deploy my coupons site with this theme. Super fast load with minor modification. Love it much when load by mobile devices.

Header Image
By , for WP 3.6

I am having the same problem with the header image not working on the twenty thirteen theme. To get around it I am using a plugin called "twenty thirteen header animations" - I can only get one header to show although there are 4 images to choose from - I I am not good with PHP. I am also having problems seeing my media library images in the same theme.

Adore the style typography and design
By , for WP 3.6

I adore the typography and it's responsive design and how it bring the default WordPress theme back to blogging. I really like it…

But I always liked my titles above the post content so I created a child theme called r2d2. Which is available for you to download in the WordPress Theme Directory.

Ilove the header
By ,

Asthetically I liked the Thirteen till I wanted a site's RSS,and an Image of 160 x 223, that all that was in the sidebar. I thought at first the Image being top was pushing it down but I removed it and its still the same.

I love the Twentythirteen, but it needs sorting out in the sidebar, it drops down to the footer.

Other default themes I can have half dozen widgets without the sidebar dropping.

At the moment I am horrified to find my RSS link from another site has dropped to the footer and I only asked for five posts from the RSS as I always do.

I tried reducing the widget font but it makes no difference, I edited the font to "Verdana", still no difference I did that because most people don't have certain fonts on their systems thats in the style sheet..

I don't know what to do now, what theme.

Worst Theme yet
By , for WP 3.6

Just try customizing the header and you'll see VERY fast that whoever put this theme together spent about 5 minutes and didn't had no skill to take advantage of real progress that other authors have used!

Go back to twenty-eleven and use that... it's only gotten worse since then!

No Sidebar no toggle sub menus..

It lacks the ability to choose different places for the sidebar.

This might have been intentional as perhaps the people that designed it only use Smartphones and didn't see it necessary to create a responsive theme.

If they had followed their intent to design only for Smartphones a submenu hide and show would have been good. I know not hard to add.

For Smartphones and smaller tablets this theme is excellent, thank developers for all your efforts, I really appreciate the work.

I don't like this theme at all!

Just could not customise it.

I might be slow and the fact is I am not a programmer.

However having used WordPress for so long, the single most feature of customising the theme seems to be out of the window. This was disappointing.

I will give it a few more months to see if it improves. In the meantime, I am reverting to Twenty Twelve. This is for the first time in my relation with WordPress that I am so grossly disappointed.

A near perfect personal playground.

Pottering WordPress themes for years now I have started fumbling around with child themes. And this Twenty Thirteen really surprised me. What an awesome starting point to explore.
Like always I am overdoing everything to the point of being merely idiotic instead of delicate. So as a personal playground it will probably not last very long.
Seriously: this really feels like a breath of fresh air. Though I wonder if it will serve its purpose as a default theme.
But this is true: it looks great (cool) on any device.

Very good starting point for the child themes. Really loved it.
