It’s been a long time since the Tavern has received a new coat of paint. I’d like to introduce you to the new WordPress Tavern. This design is a child theme that we created, based on Stargazer, a new parent theme from Theme Hybrid. WPTavern is now responsive and looks good on any mobile device without the need to use a special mobile theme. If the font used for the content looks familiar to you, it’s because it’s the same one used within the newly redesigned backend of WordPress.
We’ve tried to maintain some of the personality unique to WordPress Tavern such as the wooden floor. This time however, the wood is a lighter shade which brightens the website. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Angie Meeker for the inspiration behind the new Tavern header logo and Scott Reilly for playing the role of guinea pig. The beer mug in the header will be used as our brand image across the various social networking sites.
This is the first of many big changes on the way. With the redesign in place, keep an eye out for the WordPress Tavern forum to make a return. If you come across a bug while browsing the site, please get in touch with us. When providing a bug report, tell us what browser and version you’re using. Be as descriptive as possible.
Love the new look and feel! Great job.
