WordPress 3.6 is live with a spanking brand new default theme that is “bold, beautiful and sleek” – but we thought we’d change that be “Bold, Beautiful and Bootstraped” and of course it is still sleek 🙂

So let us introduce the TwentyThirteen’s child theme – StrapThirteen Is Here! Take a look at the attached image and then check out the demo site by clicking the link below.


We have uploaded the theme to WordPress.org to be considered for inclusion in the repository – hopefully this shouldn’t take too long. In the meantime is the link for the live demo.

      Hello sj,

      Yes that was a bug with the single.php not being pulled in by the child theme – this was fixed in version 1.0.4.

      Let me know if there are any other issues – preferably over on the forum so that everyone else can benefit from the fix 🙂


  2. Hi, I just installed the theme and like it, but the Customise section doesn’t work: the website loads in the same frame as the options on the left.

      • You’re welcome. It works now. Maybe you can also help me with this question: I chose to have a static page as the front page. But I don’t see in the menus where I can add a link to my blog posts page to the menu.

          Hello Tom,

          To get a link to your blog feed you’ll need to do 2 things first.

          1st: If not already done so, please create a page with the title blog or any name of your choice – do not add content to it and simply save it with the default settings.

          2nd: Navigate to Appearance > > Menus and look in the left pane of the menus labelled “Pages” to locate the page created above – check the box and click add to menu. You can then drag it in to position of where in the menu you’d like it to appear, click save to complete the process and the page will appear in the menu on the front end.

          Hope that helps but you are still having problems with it let me know and I’ll investigate further.


          • Did that. You forgot to mention that I need to go to Settings –> Reading –> Posts Page and select my blog page, but I figured that out myself. 🙂

    lol sorry about that but glad you got there 🙂

    Would appreciate a rating at the repository if you could please? 🙂

  4. Your theme looks terrific, as really nice way to enhance the Twenty Thirteen. I’ve been playing with it on an older website, with the intention of upgrading my current business site. I want to use a custom header image that I created, but I can’t get it to show up. The only time is shows is when I check “Display the header text” in the Customize menu — which I don’t want. The image will replace the need for any text. Will you please point me in the right direction to solve this? Thank you.

      Hello Bob,

      Thanks for the appreciation and I’m glad you like the theme.

      As for the header, unfortunately that’s how the parent theme has been coded – the header image is tied to the Site title. It is something I’ve tinkering with to see if I can unlock them to allow the use of one or the other but still have a little way to go yet.

      Once I’ve figured it out I’ll be sure to post feedback here and also update the theme to facilitate that feature.
