Twenty Fifteening

I said when I moved my site over to, I wanted to try more themes.

Well, today I’m trying a new one: Twenty Fifteen. It’s not officially out yet, but it will be the new default theme for WordPress. A few of my colleagues and friends are trying it too. I’m  really excited about it because it’s beautiful, accessibility-ready and the first default theme I’ve contributed to code-wise.

  1. Hello Mr. Kennedy,

    I am glad that you are using the beta version/whatever of the Twenty Fifteen theme, I came close to asking you about it the last time that I commented, but I assumed that you would try it eventually. 😉

    I noticed that your sidebar lacks the scrollbar(?), did you modify the theme, or was this changed in the newest version of the theme?

    Either way, I like how it looks without the scrollbar(?), so good job. 🙂

    Thank you,

    1. Thanks for the comment!

      I didn’t do anything to the theme beside add a tad bit of CSS for callout areas and add a custom background.

      The scrollbar doesn’t appear because the content in the sidebar area is short. The scrollbar only appears when there’s a lot of content there.

      1. You are welcome Mr. Kennedy. 🙂

        Oh, thank you for explaining that, I hope that the final version of the Twenty Fifteen theme has an option to disable the scrollbar (I am not the only person who is not a fan of the scrollbar, if you noticed some of the comments in the comment sections on WP Tavern, but that is just my/our opinion 😉 ); and I would like to see timestamps for posts (or at least when you hover the mouse over the date), and I would like the tagline to show in tablet and mobile views/sizes as well (or at least show when you click the Menu Button).

        I do like the font and font size for Twenty Fifteen, very readable, anyway keep up the good work; and thank you for responding.
