WordPress Theme “Sugar and Spice”.

Update information      Edit    Edit2(Mar.9)    Edit3(Mar.9)

   I changed the theme of my sites to “Sugar and Spice“. I made three child themes for my site except my netradi.

   There are a lot of things which need work, but I already get bored. So, the rest I do at a later date. (^^;)

Edit:
   This was too shoddy article. I make some addition for my reminder.

   The reason for changing my Themes is I want to use the new features of Themes, about which I wrote on “Upgrading to WordPress 3.6.“. There is also the maintenance and the security of my sites. Besides, I want to support HTML5. Oh yes, about AdSense (He-he).

   The theme “Sugar and Spice” has ‘custom-menu’, ‘responsive-layout’, ‘theme-options’ as its major features. Nowadays, my sites has more accesses via smartphones, so the ‘responsive-layout’ is what I want to use.

   Though I considered revising my old themes before deciding to select a new theme, it seemed to take enormous time because each site had each theme and the themes made by myself. And, a lack of my knowledge about WordPress Theme (^^;). Besides, I’ve learned about “Child Theme” of WordPress Theme since I began WordPress blogs. So, at my new Theme I don’t make any changes on the parent Theme, I use the child Theme features for this purpose.

   WordPress has a huge number of Themes as you know. It is very difficult to choose a Theme from among them. So, I decided the range was only “Featured Themes“. I think the Theme among them maybe has new features and decent supports. I was tired and bored about this, finally, I settled for “Sugar and Spice“.

   I made a style.css for the child Theme. It includes the next customizations.
body {
color: #000;
}
/* Typography */
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
color: #000;
}
/* Calendar Widget */
table th,
table td{
color: #000;
border: none;
text-align: left;
}

   The most struggling thing is the change of the original color of the Color scheme in the Theme Options. This original script is not in the style.css but in sugar-and-spice/inc/extras.php. Various new techniques appear, but an amateur like me is not following them (Sigh!).

   With this revision, I stopped the use of “One Row Calendar” and “My Link Order”. I’ve use them for a long time. I thanked the authors of both plugins m(_”_)m.

Edit2(Mar.9):

  • **About style.css customization
    • ****For displaying table’s background image
      /* Calendar Widget */
      table th,
      table td{
      color: #000;
      background: transparent;
         <--- I added this line. border: none;
      text-align: left;
      }
    • ****For darker comment form font color
      /* #Forms */
      input[type="text"],
      input[type="search"],
      input[type="password"],
      input[type="email"],
      textarea,
      select {
      color: #000;
      }

      input[type="text"]:focus,
      input[type="search"]:focus,
      input[type="password"]:focus,
      input[type="email"]:focus,
      textarea:focus {
      color: #000;
      }

      label span,
      legend span {
      color: #000;
      }

    1. Hi, Estara.

      I’m glad to hear that.

      One of my Japanese blog visitors told me the font color was too light when he wrote a comment, so I changed it darker because I had forgot it to customized when changing the Theme original font color darker.

      If you find something, tell me about them like him.
