When it comes to WordPress themes, less is definitely more, so with Accent you get just the right amount of options and a clean design, letting your awesome content do the talking. That means no image sliders or crazy amounts of settings and options. Just simple design done right.
In WordPress 3.4 the Theme Customizer API was introduced, making settings pages basically obsolete. Apart from taking advantage of a core WordPress functionality, the customizer screen allows admins to live preview their changes. Here's what Accent has to offer:
Designed with the reader in mind, Accent features great typography and includes some of the best open-source web fonts.
You can change the colors of the links and menu background to match your brand or personal preference. You can also change the background color and site title color.
Accent was built using the mobile-first approach. It starts with a basic layout for mobile devices and gradually builds up to accommodate more capable devices.
The footer has three handy widgetized areas that can be used for anything.
Accent is a standard compliant theme that adheres to WordPress’ philosophy: simplicity over bloatware, clean, lean & mean and works out of the box.
