Themes WordPress

Time For Change (of theme)

Today Automattic released the brand new Duster WordPress Theme.

Being a technical guy, I typically don’t care much for WordPress themes.

However I haven’t been happy with how my website has been looking so I decided to give it a try.

The showcase template is really cool (I’m using it for the home page), and I also really like the simplistic layout of the individual post and archive pages.

Anyway, enough talking about pretty things. Time to dig back into some code!
