WordPress Theme: Thirteen

Wordpress theme: Thirteen A new theme for WordPress!

It’s somewhat similar to my current layout. Not much, but just a bit. Why call it Thirteen? The little doodles used in the theme came out of a sketchbook I kept when I was that age. Or maybe I was twelve then? Either way, Thirteen makes a much cooler name.

Important: By default, the header only fits a short blog name (under 20 characters or so), but this can easily be changed by opening up header.php and following its instructions.

Let me know what you think, bug reports are welcome. And I do promise something not fixed-width and centered for the next theme!

    Thank you for releasing this under the GPL. As always, it’s lovely to see new works published under that awesome license. Becca, what operating system are you using nowadays? Linux too?

    Awesome! And green’s my favourite colour, too. Well done, once again. I’ve gotta test this some time.

    That’s a very nice theme you got there.Could I ask what style switcher you’re using on your demo site, I’m looking for one for myself

    New Theme from BeccaryBeccary released a new WordPress theme just now. It’s called Thirteen and, as is the case with all her other work (like the theme I’m currently using here), it looks awesome. This time, the prevailing colour is olive green with dark orange…

    i like the colors.when i first saw the title, before reading anything else, i thought “thirteen” was the number of the layout =p

  • MK said,
    September 11, 2005 9 years, 51 days ago

    um there is an excess get footer function in the footer file itself (bug fix)

  • Becca said,
    September 11, 2005 9 years, 51 days ago

    MK: Are you sure that’s not wp_footer(); in the footer file?

  • Elea said,
    September 12, 2005 9 years, 51 days ago

    I love that you keep coming up with these unique designs. No two ever look the same, and yet each is stylish and/or gorgeous in its own way. Fantabulous!

  • Jess said,
    September 12, 2005 9 years, 51 days ago

    Wow, green, my favorite color! I really do like the way you came up with the name, Thirteen. I think number-names are much more unique than letter-names =PIt’s amazing how you can always spit out these simple, but marvelous designs time after time. This is great!

  • Angel said,
    September 13, 2005 9 years, 51 days ago

    Hi.Do you design webblog templates. I’m looking at getting a nice webblog template. I’m into bright colours and I like funky, unusual pretty stuff. Do you know of any other blogs that provide these sorts of templates. You can check out my blog and you will see that I have been experimenting…but I’m still not satisfied…I get so bored with it.If you could help, that would be awesome. Thanks

  • Simos said,

    Really nice theme!I see however that the shadow appears almost uniform on both sides (left and right) of the blog.Wouldn’t it appear more natural if the shadow on the left was much more reduced?For example, see http://www.gnome.org/start/2.12/notes/el/figures/figure-totem.png(shadow plugin from GIMP)

  • Kat said,

    I had a bit of a footer error too, but I did a bit of faffing around and it now works. Using it on my site now as I’m too goddam lazy to come up with something myself.

    Just found your “thirteen” by accident, picked it at first sight as you can see at my blog. Designing a theme for myself would be a target in the far future after I have gathered sufficient knowledge about WP and migrate all my other blogs. I’ll have something to learn from your site.

    […] Browsing the WordPress documentation and web site, I noticed the featured themes. I felt most drawn to Almost Spring and Ocadia, both of which were designs by Becca Wei. Curious to find out if there might be more of these subtly energetic designs, I checked Ms. Wei’s web site, beccary.com. Indeed, I was not disappointed, finding two more clean, compelling designs. After some consideration (and a lot of previewing), I selected Thirteen. Thanks to Ms. Wei for an impeccable design. […]

    Hello Becca,I just started a blog this weekend and am using your theme. It’s the best theme I could find after a whole day of searching through 500 WP themes. I fell in love with ‘thirteen’ immediatley. Thanks for your nice work and good luck! I will keep an eye on your new designs in the future.

    Is there a way to have a banner (just a small one with the title of my blog) instead of the title that comes with the design?
