Free as in Bird

A lightweight, responsive, readable WordPress theme. This theme currently powers lessig.org. With a few modifications, it will work on any WordPress site.

Installation

  • Clone this repository to wp-content/themes/Free-as-in-Bird/
  • In the WordPress dashboard, go to Settings > Themes and activate "Free as in Bird"

Typography

This theme is designed to work with the font Skolar Web from TypeKit. If you don't install Skolar, the default will be Georgia.

Bootstrap

This theme uses Twitter Bootstrap for base styles and responsiveness. The LESS files live in bootstrap/less/. After editing these files, compile them to styles/[filename].css--for instance:

$ lessc bootstrap/less/bootstrap.less styles/bootstrap.css
$ lessc bootstrap/less/responsive.less styles/bootstrap-responsive.css
