New Theme: Twenty Eleven

Last year on WordPress.com we introduced the world to the first new WordPress default theme in 5 years — the first annual default theme — Twenty Ten. Now it’s our pleasure to introduce you all to its successor, Twenty Eleven.

The Twenty Eleven Theme

It might look familiar. 🙂 Yep, Twenty Eleven started life as the Duster theme before it made the theme big leagues. But it’s not just a renamed Duster. There are tons of really cool improvements and features packed into it — more Post Formats, beautiful new header images, alternate color schemes and layouts, even custom link colors. All those features add up to the best part of Twenty Eleven: just how customizable it is. It looks great as a blog, a showcase of all your posts, and even a tumblelog or photoblog.

If you want to know more about the cool new features in Twenty Eleven we’ve made a page that outlines them all on the Theme Showcase. You can read up on Twenty Eleven there and check out a live demo or just simply activate it on your blog and start experimenting! And if you have a self-hosted installation of WordPress you haven’t been left out of the fun. You can wait to give Twenty Eleven a shot when WordPress 3.2 is released in about a month or try it out right now with the beta version and upcoming release candidates. We’re looking forward to seeing how you use Twenty Eleven on your blog.

    I just switched, and am currently tinkering around [the sidebar font size, especially, plus something got wonky with the post writing]. Still, blah-blahs aside, I am loving it so far, thanks. Perfect for kick-starting my blog after its too-long hibernation.

    Like the theme especially for the option to set different headers for different pages. And the theme is neater and not too bold or splashy either.

    I just implemented Twenty Eleven on my blog and I’m quite impressed! I think I’m happy with it for now and there’s still plenty of extra settings to tweak.

    Thanks for another great theme 🙂

    I am using it for my brand new blog 🙂 It is good but lacks some options for header height and sidebar to the right if you use showcase.
