Say hello to Retro, a modern take on a classic WordPress theme.

Retro

For those of you who have been in the WordPress world a while, Retro should look familiar. It’s look is heavily borrowed from Kubrick, which was the default WordPress theme from 2006-2010.

Kubrick has always been one of my favorite themes, and back when this site was soupnazi.org, it ran a modified version of it for a long time. So, when I sat down a month ago or so to build a new theme, I decided to recreate it and bring it up-to-date. This site is running a child theme of Retro right now.

You can learn more about Retro, see a demo, follow development, and download the theme over at the Retro theme page.

I just switched to a new theme that I built. I wrote a long post earlier this week covering my thought process behind it and some features that I added, and then… I lost the post.

It wasn’t WordPress’ fault, I wrote it in markdown in Textastic on my iPad and thought I saved it to iCloud. It turns out I didn’t–I saved it locally. And of course that was when the iOS 10 GM was released and when I did a clean install, I lost the post.

Anyway, I’ll write up another post about the new theme in the near future. I’ll also be releasing the theme for download, so keep an eye out for the post. Now would be a good time to subscribe to my posts :)

As always, please let me know if you run into any problems.
