From the first day I launched the Exhale WordPress theme, I’ve been teasing a dark child theme for it. And, that child theme’s day has finally arrived.
I’m pleased to introduce you to Unravel, the first of many Exhale child themes to come.
Unravel is a fork of the Ravel theme I released a few years ago. Tung Do created the original design, and I turned it into a theme. I was never quite satisfied with how that theme turned out, but I loved the color scheme. So, I ripped that color scheme out, mixed it with some new fonts, and created something I’m much more excited about.
It should make a great theme for art, photography, and other creative work. But, it could do just as well for any number of sites.
Unravel is a dark child theme, which is a nice departure from the basic light colors of its parent theme. It utilizes the Lobster Two font for headings and the Muli font for other text. All editor colors are also configured to match its color scheme.
I tend to use child themes more as “skins,” so Unravel doesn’t bring any new features to the table. All of the features are housed within the Exhale parent theme. That way, regardless of the child theme you’re using, you get all the benefits of new features when Exhale is updated.
Want to adjust the colors a bit? Like a different font better? You can absolutely change those things.
What Unravel does is provide a default skin that you can customize to suit your own tastes.
Note that Unravel requires at Exhale version 1.1.0 (or later) to work. This is due to some updates related to child themes in Exhale 1.1.0.
