Cody’s passion lies in helping people to do what they do best – by helping to support their endeavors and this theme is sure to help some business’ websites look really awesome online.

Expansion-Red child theme is much more than simple color exchanges from the original Expansion Child Theme. Although the original green colors are obviously exchanged with a deep burgundy -red, it is the little differences when comparing the theme’s similarities that allow Expansion-Red make an impact.

Expansion-Red child theme, like Expansion, has 3 alternate widget styles. There is a dark gray widget area background with white text. There is a white widget area background with dark text that also has the burgundy color used in the titles. The biggest change, though, is that the Expansion-Red child theme uses a different widget area background that looks like the old recycled paper. In the widget areas, it appears full width behind white widget backgrounds. Widgets in the theme have dark text and burgundy colored titles. Another feature Expansion-Red shares with the original theme release is the date stamp that adjusts it’s location according to your page layout choice.

Expansion-Red child theme also uses the recycled-paper looking background behind it’s content areas which is a nice touch and non-distracting in design. The textured background extends full width beyond the theme container. The navigation bar has a crimson and dark burgundy gradient. The hover color of the navigation is a sold deep crimson. Main titles are the dark gray and with content areas having a white background. The widget titles are displayed in a burgundy and in the sidebars have a transparent background.
