  1. I’ve just tried it out. This is just another boring theme iteration. They should just stick to content management because they haven’t got a clue about web design.

    Allowing users to make horrible color choices. I mean come-on. This is just embarrassing having this as the default theme.

    Also Bootstrap 4 should of been used rather than their custom underscores css web framework. Standard these days and makes it easier for us developers to extend.
