Ningxia theme

First published 7th August 2016 (Last Modified 12th January 2023)


I had used the ming theme for quite a while, originally on its own and then with a child theme to fix some minor issues I had with the theme. However I wanted to get the copyright notice correct in the sense that it should show the year of publication of the earliest page or post being displayed and the latest modification date of the page or posts being displayed. I therefore created a new theme based on the ming theme, which I've tentatively called Ningxia. I haven't registered it with wordpress's theme library, so there is a risk of a name clash in the future.

Many thanks to Axiu, the author of the ming theme.
