Builder Child Theme Expansion-Blue Review

Builder Child Theme Expansion-BlueBuilder Child Theme Expansion-Blue was designed and developed by Justin Kopepasah. He was the lead developer. Justin claims to be a Cascade crusader and WordPress junkie growing with @iThemes team – and a life-time learner.

We expected only simple color exchanges from the original Expansion Child Theme to the Builder Child Theme Expansion-Blue. We were pleasantly surprised that although the colors are obviously exchanged and there are some similarities, it’s the differences are noticeable.

The Builder Child Theme Expansion-Blue, like Expansion, has 3 alternate widget styles. The first is a dark gray background with white text. Secondly, there is a white background with dark text. The patterned paper-weave background, with dark text within white back-grounded widget areas, is the third option. Another feature Expansion-Blue shares with the original theme release is the date stamp that adjusts location to accommodate your page layout choice.

The color pallet of the Builder Child Theme Expansion-Blue, is blue. It has has a white-patterned, paper-looking weave for a nice textured background. The navigation bar is a blue gradient and a solid dark teal hover color. Main titles are the dark gray and widget area titles are displayed in a medium teal.
