A beautiful place to start...

After all these years I still love the Twenty Twelve theme, it's a great place to start as a blank slate for developing WordPress child themes!

Genial tema
By , for WP 4.3.1

De las webs y blogs en wordpress, para mi los que siempre me han gustado más han sido aquellos que son blancas y simplistas con minimalismos sin ningún tipo de complicación y que por lo tanto también se pueden cargar rápido. Actualmente la uso en mi pagina web sobre teléfonos inalámbricos y es una genialidad saber que si alguna vez quiero cambiar el estilo del blog o tal vez poner otro tema, siempre voy a dejar este porque es uno de los que nunca se rompe.

Además con algunas cosas como los teléfonos de casa es bastante interesante ver como los usuarios prestan más atención ya que todo es blanco.

One of the best - uno de los mejores

Es uno de los mejores themes que hay.

Vale, es muy simple, pero realmente es muy ligero y rápido, algo muy importante hoy en dia.

4 starts for functionality
By , for WP 3.9.2

Hello all. We know not everybody leaves this theme since is one of the main themes you have when you begin a WordPress project.

What I do, is always leave Twenty Twelve as a backup theme just in case my last website (Auriculares Bluetooth) crashes. So for design we know is not the best because is pretty simple, although lots of people prefer that.

So I'm giving 4 stars for functionallity and leaving the last fifth start for the simple design. Also I believe it could be a little more responsive. But anyways, it's always good to have a theme you can trust just in case something happens with the others.

Take care

Clean and responsive design
By , for WP 3.8

I also use Twenty Twelve on some of my blogs and it is one of my favourites together with Twenty Thirteen. I like its clean, minimalistic and modern design althought I would appreciate more widget sections. But overall is a very good theme.

I use this theme for my blog, and it looks much better than Twenty Thirteen.

Ok if clean install, not if changing themes

Twenty twelve v1.2
I have a self hosted WP blog with my own custom theme. I wanted a responsive theme and thought I'd take a shortcut.
The good: easy to install, easy to change colors and you can upload a custom header photo. I looked at on my iphone and it translated very nicely in safari.

the bad: I spent an hour and finally gave up on trying to resolve Google Structured Data Testing Tool Error: Missing required field "updated". (The issue appears in twenty eleven, twenty twelve and thirteen, though this review is on twelve.) The latest versions of the plugin have incorporated the fix often cited (example- http://www.kaibader.de/wordpress-twenty-twelve-and-rich-snippets-testing-tool/). My function.php file already looks the fix, but I still can't get the problem to go away.

Additionally, running a w3c check there are over 30 errors per page.

Some of them are likely related to other plugin, set up, or old manual html conflicts, so I can't give the theme less than 4 stars. Here are some of the issues:
Line 68, Column 10: Element hgroup not allowed as child of element header in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)
Content model for element header:
Flow content, but with no header, footer, or main element descendants.

Error Line 68, Column 10: The hgroup element is obsolete. To mark up subheadings, consider either just putting the subheading into a p element ...

conclusion: starting from scratch? great choice
upgrading? might want to hire someone to upgrade from any older design

Solid theme
By , for WP 3.5.2

I was using a custom theme for my blog at first. However, after noticing a few problems with a couple of the plugins, I switched to the 2012 theme. The plugins now work great and the theme looks pretty good as well. I still need to customize the theme a bit more, but overall this theme looks pretty good right out of the box, especially if you already have a logo to use.

Très bon

Un excellent thème à recommander !

Best free theme
By , for WP 3.5

This is the best free theme, SEO optimized and user friendly. Knowing a little bit CSS and HTML can make it even better!
