Twenty Eleven Theme

One of the new features of WordPress 3.2 is the new theme, Twenty Eleven. It is now the default theme for new sites and comes with some interesting features.

Among the new features:

  • New Post Formats – Post formats now include Aside, Gallery, Link, Quote and Status.
  • Light and Dark Color Schemes – Available under Appearance → Theme Options
  • Custom Link Colors – Using a color wheel, you can change your site’s link color.
  • Multiple Layouts – Twenty Eleven has three different layouts including a left sidebar, right sidebar or no sidebar.
  • Large Header Image – The new header image is larger. 1000 pixels x 288 pixels. You can select one of the provided images or upload your own.
    • (Note: If you prefer a smaller header image, we’ve created a “TwentyEleven (Smaller Header)” theme with a header that is 150 pixels tall.)
  • Flexible Width – Twenty Eleven re-sizes gracefully for smaller screens. When using this theme, try resizing your browser window to see. This theme will display nicely on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.)

WordPress.com has an article that describes the theme’s features in more detail.
