Kai Series

By on

「改」Series (a.k.a. Kai), is a series of the missing child themes for WordPress default theme Twenty Twelve, Twenty Eleven, and Twenty Ten. The prefix “Kai” of this series is inspired from Japanese anime ドラゴンボール改 (a.k.a. Dragon Ball Kai).


  • Written in Sass (Kai 12) and Less (others), no IE support
  • Full Theme Unit Test passes. Maybe one of the most Gutenberg blocks compatible themes in WordPress directory (Kai 12)
  • Full dynamic color scheme with WordPress Customizer support based on CSS variables (Kai 12)
  • Randomized powered highlight.js support (Kai 12)
  • Better font stack for Chinese, Japanese and other asian languages
  • Better code snippets style
  • Adds .well block inspired by Bootstrap
  • Fix media query issue
  • Theme updater support



Q: “Why not submit these themes to WordPress.org official repository?”

A: Their theme reviewer thinks my theme “just offer a few minor CSS tweaks and adds new footer credit links” #.

Update: After a 3-month long review, Kai 12 is now listed on official WordPress theme directory.
