I Adopted The Sketch Theme

I adopted the Sketch theme and took it home with me…

Did you see the post from WordPress today about the Sketch theme?

I looked at the theme when it came out but I wasn’t interested because the demo looks like this:


I wasn’t interested in a grid theme.

But wait! When I read the post today I saw that one featured site had a ‘normal’ sidebar setup. So I looked to see how to do it (very easy) and adopted it – and as of today that’s the theme you see here.

I had to chop down the length of the menu items because the allocated space for the menu is pretty narrow, but overall I am happy with the theme.

What do you think?


  1. I think it’s lighthearted and fun.


    1. I’m very happy with it.

      Anyone can download any of the free WP.com themes and use them in their own self-hosted WordPress sites, so I might use it on one of those, too.


  2. I like! Very much!

    Like you, I didn’t even look into it when it was released, but this is very nice.


    1. It I use it on a self-hosted site I can tweak allocated length of the navigation menu – make it longer. I might have a go at that.
