Colorful New Theme

Introducing Twenty Thirteen

The new default theme puts focus on your content with a colorful, single-column design made for media-rich blogging. Inspired by modern art, Twenty Thirteen features quirky details, beautiful typography, and bold, high-contrast colors — all with a flexible layout that looks great on any device, big or small.

Write with Confidence

Explore Revisions

From the first word you write, WordPress saves every change. Each revision is always at your fingertips. Text is highlighted as you scroll through revisions at lightning speed, so you can see what changes have been made along the way. It’s easy to compare two revisions from any point in time, and to restore a revision and go back to writing. Now you can be confident that no mistake is permanent.

Improved Autosaves

Never lose a word you’ve written. Autosaving is now even better; whether your power goes out, your browser crashes, or you lose your internet connection, your content is safe.

Better Post Locking

Always know who’s editing with live updates that appear in the list of posts. And if someone leaves for lunch with a post open, you can take over where they left off.

Support for Audio and Video

New Media Player

Share your audio and video with the new built-in HTML5 media player. Upload files using the media manager and embed them in your posts.  

Embed Music from Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud

Embed songs and albums from your favorite artists, or playlists you’ve mixed yourself. It’s as simple as pasting a URL into a post on its own line. (Love another service? Check out all of the embeds that WordPress supports.)

Under the Hood

Audio/Video API

The new audio/video APIs give developers access to powerful media metadata, like ID3 tags.

Semantic Markup

Themes can now choose improved HTML5 markup for comment forms, search forms, and comment lists.

JavaScript Utilities

Handy JavaScript utilities ease common tasks like Ajax requests, templating, and Backbone view management.

Shortcode Improvements

Search content for shortcodes withhas_shortcode() and adjust shortcode attributes with a new filter.

Revision Control

Fine-grained revision controls allow you to keep a different number of revisions for each post type.

External Libraries

New and updated libraries: MediaElement.js, jQuery 1.10.2, jQuery UI 1.10.3, jQuery Migrate, Backbone 1.0.
