Liquorice

Add a dash of color to your site with Liquorice, a wonderful new theme now available on WordPress.com.

Gorgeous textures and smooth-as-silk typography make this a striking backdrop for your content. This theme’s design is light and airy without being too plain or minimalistic; it’s a great fit for any type of site.

Liquorice features custom subscribe icons for RSS, Twitter, and Facebook for your site header and built-in support for the bold and adventurous Lobster typeface.

Custom Font: Lobster

If you choose to enable Lobster you’ll add an extra touch of retro feel to your site. Lobster’s bold, calligraphic strokes make it perfect for calling out titles and headings.

To enable the tailored Lobster font, first head over to Appearance → Custom Design → Switch to advanced (located on the right) and sign up for a Typekit account. After signup browse the Typekit site to find Lobster and add it to you “kit.” Note the Kit ID and enter the value back in your WordPress.com dashboard. That’s it—no need to manage selectors in the kit, this theme is ready to go.

Customizable

Make this theme your own with the custom background feature, a custom header image, and a custom menu. Head over to Appearance → Theme Options to add your social URLs to enable the Twitter and Facebook icons and links in the header.
