I’ve finally implemented the new theme – UNC Charlotte Theme – on all of our sites. This was a big project that I hope nobody noticed. The reason you should not have noticed any changes is because they were almost entirely backend code changes. The biggest difference visually is that we’ve moved the max width for sites from 960px to 1140px.
There are several new options you can enable on your site. The most visually different option is the new variation called UNCC Epsilon. This variation mimics the new Drupal theme that is being implemented across our college and department sites. Additionally there are new header options including the choice to use a slider as your header. In order to use a slider for your header, you’ll need to create a slider first. As mentioned in the previous post, I’ve created Page Hierarchy Menus for sites that previously relied on the default page hierarchy for their menu. Some sites might notice a slight change in the menu order because of this. You can modify the menu structure by logging in to your site and going to the Customizer in the WP admin bar.
If you previously used the Simple Custom CSS plugin or the PC Custom CSS plugin, all of your CSS has been moved into WordPress’ additional CSS option. You can see all of your code by logging in to your site and going to the Customizer in the WP admin bar.
On to the next project!
