My new Twenty Twenty look

I decided to switch my site over to the new Twenty Twenty theme that will be released with WordPress 5.3 next week. I downloaded a pre-release version from the GitHub repo, and uploaded it directly.

I like the default themes that ship with WordPress, and the themes that our team is building. Even though the new generation of themes aren’t perfect*, they’re built for the block editor. I keep forgetting how much flexibility that brings to WordPress.

So far, I like this new theme. I think the content container is a bit narrow on a larger screen, so I may tweak that a bit. The mobile view is pretty great, though.

For example, I’d love to see custom fonts return to the Customizer, although with Full Site Editing on the way, we won’t be using the Customizer for much longer.

    It does look nice! I’m looking forward to give it a try myself even though I’m rather happy with 2019 still. Just hope the theme will be on WP.COM next week as well.

      I was also using Twenty Nineteen before this one. It worked pretty well for me. The content width felt more comfortable.

      Still, I like aspects of Twenty Twenty a bit more, and I can tweak the content width with some CSS.

    Looks great! Maybe I try it on my website.

    it needs a sidebar. vanilla wordpress is still centered on blogging and long form content. a sidebar can help users navigate content on a page, in addition to showing them relevant cross-links.
