There are 3 widget areas that help users to customize their websites. You can use the Twenty Fourteen theme to create a magazine. The theme helps webmasters to publish engaging content in new ways.

The dashboard is orange, but you can choose from other color combinations such as ocean, midnight, ectoplasm, blue, and coffee. You can change the color combo from your profile settings. There is also an option to create your own color combinations and schemes. You can do this through a new plug-in – HS Custom Admin Theme. This is a user-friendly color picker. Just choose a menu front color, sub-menu background color, background color on hover, menu background color, and theme name. The color schemes created by users are recorded by the plug-in. This means that you can create a virtual library of color combinations and patterns for future use. The layout is uncluttered, simple, elegant, and spaced out. It is easy to work with and is designed to be used on smartphones and tablets. Users benefit from a better looking and sleeker interface. There are benefits for developers as well, among which better RTL support and updated external libraries. The help tap text has been improved as well.
