Some time ago I teased that I was working on a p2 child theme. Well, that child theme is now available for you to download and use!
I built the theme initially for use at WooThemes. We love p2 but a number of people were clamouring for better responsiveness and a few little features that are missing from stock p2. After some testing and tweaking we felt it made sense to make the theme openly available. So that’s what we did.
Houston is available from the WordPress.org theme repository and can therefore be downloaded directly from your Dashboard. Just search for ‘Houston’ (and obviously make sure you have p2 installed as well).
In addition to p2 Houston offers;
- All new design with refreshed layout and typography.
- Fully responsive – browse on any device and see an optimised UI.
- Additional widget region beneath the post box.
- Inline reply link making it easier to reply to posts.
- Integration with p2 likes plugin by Scott Basgaard.
Finally, if you’re using Houston and notice any issues, or would like to contribute, please do so on our github repository.
