The Editor WordPress Theme – Too Subtle?

I love the big headlines and the clarity of the layout of the Editor WordPress theme. But the bits that are perhaps too subtle are ‘hidden’ in a folder icon that is the route into the sidebar links – including even the ‘Search’ box.

What do you think – just right / too subtle / ?

  1. I can’t say I’m crazy over any of the minimalist themes. For photography blog like yours I can see the appeal, but I don’t like having to search for something as basic as a search box.

    • Thank you for the feedback and as I may have non-too subtly hinted that’s my feeling.

      I like the theme well enough that I am going to contact the makers and suggest that the search box makes its way to the front somehow.

  2. I really _like_ the theme, and the subtle sidebar, but then again, I realise that most people wouldn’t notice those little icons … or even ‘get it’. So … yes, I guess it’s too subtle.

      • I applied Editor from wp.ORG repository, and it look very different at first, but that’s fixed now.

        I really liked it, but I’ve moved on 😉

    I often come across search boxes that aren’t search boxes in the original sense. To a certain extent I “blame” Google for their material designs where you tap a vague area and “boom! Zap! Kapow!” it suddenly reveals a search box that you wouldn’t have known was there unless you were familiar with the design principles that have been adhered to. I am, you are but someone like my Dad wouldn’t be and therefore people will get annoyed by it.

        Oh yes! The “Hamburger” menu, it is an oddity isn’t it? I’ve now got so used to it that I have forgotten why it is confusing!
