WordPress.com Blogging University Day Five Assignment: Love Your Theme

To be honest, I liked the first theme I was using called “Typo”. I like this one as well. It’s called “Libre” and it’s on the minimal side. I wouldn’t say that I have LOVED either theme and I don’t like the fact that when I change themes I have to rename and reorder the widgets. It’s not a chore right now since I am just starting out, but I am not looking forward to changing themes in the future. And what happens when WordPress retires or discontinues a theme?

One thing I am still trying to figure out is how to create a side menu rather than strictly header and footer menus. I have explored a few themes and I chose this current theme because it seemed as though I could create a side menu. The list of themes suggested Libre has two templates, but I have not figured out how to implement the second template, unless I can only do so under the Premium plan. I have considered upgrading from personal to premium. I’m not sure if that is necessary for these issues. It is something I would like to do eventually for other reasons.

I am also trying to figure out how to rename some of the default names like on the “reply” buttons. Some minor things that I know are possible, I’ve just got to read more.

I wonder if I am going to learn some of these things in the rest of Blogging U. I have been looking through the help menus and other helpful posts, but I haven’t come across all of the answers I seek so far. I am open to any suggestions any appreciative of the help!
