I set out to create an accessible WordPress theme more than a year ago. After starts, stops, designs revisions and 140 commits to Github, I’ve submitted Accessible Zen to the WordPress Theme Repository.
It’s not approved and in the repository yet, but it’s one step closer. Here are the details of the latest release:
- Version number bump for submission to WordPress theme repository.
- Fix broken author bios.
- Fix broken comment styles.
- Fix typos and firm up acknowledgements in files.
- Rename page templates.
- Adjust font size.
- Improve docs.
- Better print styles.
- Update Genericons.
The WordPress Theme Review team will look at the theme and provide any feedback needed to improve the theme. I’ll make those changes and release them as necessary. Plus, when the accessibility-ready tag is implemented on WordPress.org, I’ll apply that to the theme as well.
And I have more accessible WordPress themes coming via the Cities project. 🙂
I’ve hit 1.0, but I still would love to hear what you think! You can submit feedback on the Github issues section, or by emailing me at me (at) davidakennedy dot com.
