If you’ve ever organized a WordCamp then you know that building your WordCamp site is done via custom CSS on a WordCamp fork of Twenty Ten. That in itself is fine, but at the WordPress Summit a lot of folks, including yours truly, pointed out that the tool provided is not fit for purpose. In other words, we want more flexibility. Otto and Konstantin were more than happy to accomodate us, but we first needed to hash out what it was that we wanted. Some of the things that were decided were the following:
- The latest versions of the current base theme as well as the functionality plugin should be shared with the entire group
- Twenty Twelve, Twenty Eleven, and Twenty Ten themes are now being offered as alternative base templates
The idea is that everyone who feels they can help out is supposed to step forward. So, if you have any input on how to improve the WordCamp theme and its functionality go make yourself heard.
