If you’re a regular visitor to my site you will no doubt have noticed that things have changed a little today.

What you’re seeing is the evolution of my theme for authors. Formerly known as “Authorsite”, I renamed the theme to “Polymath” to better suit it’s nature. I needed a theme that would cope well with a variety of posts in a variety of formats on a variety of topics.

Today, Polymath:

  1. Is built on _s (underscores),
  2. Adopts a Pinterest style “masonry” layout, powered by Desandro’s Masonry plugin
  3. Has a drop down “mega menu” with built in widget areas
  4. Has three footer widget areas
  5. Has sidebar and banner widget areas built into the masonry grid
  6. Supports post formats, changing the design of the grid elements based on the post type

There’s more work to follow, including some rigorous mobile testing. In the meantime I’d love to get your feedback on the theme before I upload it to WordPress.org.
