ZenPress - Pure Zen for WordPress
I recently started exploring David Shanske’s 2016 IndieWeb Theme for Read Write Collect. Before, I had been using Matthias Pfefferle’s Zen Press. I really like Zen for its looks and still may go back or use it for my main site. It has the feel of Medium without being in Medium. My concerns were:

  • There were small quirks with how Syndication Links and Search Results were presented (since changed)
  • I could not master my widgets, particularly the way it repeated some widgets at the bottom of the page, even after I had changed them in Appearance settings.
  • I was unable to get a child theme to work, even with the help of Chris Aldrich. (Zen has five stylesheets.)
  • I could not get the Notes post kind to work with Micro.Blog as I think a default heading was included within the RSS (again fixed since)

Check out my redesigned newsletter (and blog!)
Doug, I think I may have lost count to how many blogs you are up to, let alone domains. I have ventured down a different path of having two blogs, my main site and another which collects many disparate things. In part because I was struggling to maintain so many moving parts, but also because I have dived into the IndieWeb.

Do you have any hiccups with so many sites? For example, it was my understanding that Bridgy has certain limitations. Although moving away from the silos, I guess that may not be a concern?

Looking forward to following the links, along with the newsletter.

Aaron.
