Minds: Free Tumblr-like WordPress Twenty Eleven Child Theme

A couple of days ago, I was looking for Twenty Eleven Child Theme for this site. Luckily, I found it on WPMU.org in article 8 Free Twenty Eleven Child Theme by Siobhan McKeown. However, because I was looking for the theme that looks like Tumblr theme, my eyes focused directly on HUM theme by Daryl Koop. It has a fixed header (contains site title, featured image, search box and navigation section) which is located on the left side, and what I like most is its simplicity has made it a beautiful child theme. However, I made several modifications to meet my mood like you can see now.

Following are some changes that I’ve made, although I am still figuring out to make another remake.

  1. First look: Narrower content column and wider header section,
  2. Header section: made title size smaller with slick rounded search box, and compact line-height for navigation menu.
  3. Content post column: Added dynamic video post-format style (you have to activate it through the function.php), Change contrast for each footer entry-meta, Full width image post format, Made quote text size smaller, 50% max-width for native gallery post-format style (in case there isn’t thumbnail image on media library), Rounded comment balloon, Rounded gravatar image for status.
  4. Single page: full and dynamic layout for video and image with highlighted author information section. I also made comment form rounded as well as gravatar image.

At the moment, it’s all I’ve done for the theme. You can download and install it on your WordPress blog.

  1. Dudu, your port of the original HUM looks so GREAT, i can’t believe that the twenty eleven Theme could look like that way. I download it and will use it, after i can fix that dam BUG with the “Comment Form Quicktags” Plugin by Regen!
