Twenty Nineteen Child Theme

This theme was created by Joseph Dickson to add additional features for use on my personal websites. Feel free to learn from this code, reuse it. Even make fun of how poorly written it may be.


Version 1.0.1

  • Added Open Graph support.
    • Theme will use the custom logo set in the customizer.
    • Theme will use the featured image on posts and pages if available.
  • Updated functions.php so block.css can be cached by last modified time.

Version 1.0.0

  • Pins a post slugged ‘who-am-i’ to the homepage if it exists and doesn’t display a featured even if one is assigned.
  • Increases the Code block width to 100% of it’s container and bumps up the font size.
