UU2014 is a Responsive and Accessibility-Ready WordPress Theme designed to meet the needs of Unitarian Universalist Congregations and other UU organizations

Mobile Device Support

The theme is fully responsive to smaller screens such as mobile phones and uses the Underscores framework to provide the latest WordPress features and browser compatibility.


The theme is easy to customize with support for widget areas in two sidebars, the header, and the footer. It also allows you to easily disable features including the UU title image, UU footer image, comments, favicon, sidebars, and widget areas. Through the use of transparency, colors throughout the theme will shift to complement whatever image or color you choose for the page background.


You can find the support forum for questions and requests on GitHub


The theme recently became the 10th theme to earn the accessibility-ready tag from which requires a theme to undergo an independent review against the accessibility guidelines. These guidelines ensure that WordPress themes allow users to navigate by keyboard, use screen readers, and easily read text with sufficient contrast. This will be a continued focus for future maintenance of the theme.

UU Congregations and Organizations can create free UU WordPress sites here on in minutes

If you register on this site, you can create your own UU website.  This site utilizes WordPress Multi-Site to allow registered users to have their own site with the name "".  Please enter a real UU congregation/organization name when you register or your site might be mistaken for SPAM.  If you wish to use your own domain name ("" instead of ""), contact the theme's author who can provide instructions for updating your DNS server.  You can also ask any questions you have about where this server is hosted and how it is backed up.  You will also need to contact the author if you would like to request any additional WordPress plugins to be added to the server.  Non-UU individuals and organizations are still very welcome to use the UU2014 WordPress theme on their own sites.

Here are some of the other more interesting things you’ll find in this theme

  • You can choose between traditional UU Chalice symbols and the new UUA logo for your header and footer.  This and many other custom theme settings are available in the `Appearance -> Customize` menu of WordPress.
  • The theme will intelligently prompt you to install the Featured Articles Lite plugin that adds functionality to the theme.  You can skip the installation but you can use this plugin to create a very nice new post slider on your homepage.  This is especially nice if you use a page as your homepage instead of a blog.
  • Floating Widget Area: The theme can display a floating widget area to the right of pages and individual posts. It will hide the widget area if the page is too narrow.
  • The 'style.css' file is organized so that you can see which styles came from _s and which have been updated by UU2014.
  • Please provide feedback to the authors if you have improvements that could benefit other congregations using the theme.
  • Licensed under GPLv2 or later. :) Use it to make something cool.
