    Hi Tom

    Your theme is absolutely fantastic and to be honest I have seen many themes but nothing quite as easy to customise as this one. However for most things. I am working on a project with some friends but there is another element that is going to make us possibly abandon the theme. However you may already have some documentation on this.

    This is styling the theme. The team i am working with said that the theme is simple. That is good but then again that is a problem when you want something extra modern. Please take a look at the look ant feel of the link below

    Ignoring the pictures on this, you can see that there are many stylish elements, the way you hover over the menu, simple things like the artistic lines and all that, the way the posts show when on full screen and narrow/mobile view.

    Do you have any documentation where you can tweek the overall view using say different options to style the theme, for example
    you could have
    1. moon style
    2. water style
    3. party style

    users can then pick different styles and use css to customize. However as it is , if you do not have css you are sort of left with a very plain site. So the theme is brilliant, but when it comes to trying to customize it to look at bit more bright and flashy, there is no user friendly way for us non coders to get this done.

    Do you have any thoughts on how someone like myself and other non coders can get round this?

    Many Thanks

    Hi there,

    Glad you’re enjoying the theme 🙂

    When I developed GP, I decided to make a very simple, but very powerful theme that anyone can use to create something unique that speaks to them.

    One thing I told myself from the very start is that I would be very careful not to add too much to the theme itself, which is why I went with releasing addons that you can pick and choose to add as you like.

    This way, developers like myself can use the basic theme on highly complicated and custom websites, and not have too much extra stuff in the background that won’t be needed. It’s super lightweight, and that’s why I love using it.

    So, will I add a bunch of stuff to the basic theme? Most likely not.

    That being said – I still want people to be able to create nice themes like the ones you linked to above, which is why I’ll be adding more addons and child theme as time goes on, and hopefully other developers can create child theme we can release as well.

    GP is still quite new, and as of right now, I’m the only person developing and supporting it, so it’s a process.

    In time, I hope to have child themes just as nice – if not nicer than the themes you added above.

    Hope this answers some of your questions 🙂
