Twenty Twelve – Dark Child Theme

Here’s a free Twenty Twelve child theme I created based off of the dark color scheme of Twenty Eleven. I’ve adjusted a few of the colors and added a few minor details from the original Twenty Eleven version.

This child theme is wp-PageNavi ready, just install it, disable wp-pagenavi CSS and configure it how you like.

If you notice anything I’ve missed please leave a comment and let me know. Feel free to use it however you like.

      I agree, dark websites can be more difficult to read for sometimes. I think part of the reason might be because most websites are light in color and we’re just used to it.

      Text is not always the main content on some websites, photoblogs look great using dark color schemes, I’ve seen alot of gaming websites that look great using dark colors too.

      I find white text on a black background hurts my eyes, I think I’ll lighten this comment box up a bit.

    I’ll test this, however, I have one comment. Make your theme extendable in child themes by changing your functions.php to add an “if not function exists”:

    if ( ! function_exists ( 'twentytwelve_content_nav' ) ) {
    	function twentytwelve_content_nav( $nav_id ) {

    That way a child theme can extend it if needed.

    Thanks for a great theme!
