New WordPress Theme: NineteenNinetySix


WordPress recently announced the TwentyTwelve theme. This theme follows the TwentyTen and TwentyEleven themes.

Just for a bit of fun, using the TwentyTen theme, I’ve made the NineteenNinetySix theme to turn your site into a hideous mid 90s web monstrosity.


  • Comic Sans title font
  • Marquee Tag
  • Link buttons with big wide bevels
  • Meaningless animated gifs
  • Big serif fonts and default colours
  • Home-made textured background

I was hoping to make it fully HTML 3 and table based but I had to make it pseudo 1996 because of the difficulty of hacking WordPress to use 90s era markup.

To dos:

  • Table based layout
  • Autoplay midi tune
