About Hiroshige

Hiroshige is a fixed-width (960-pixel) theme with a flexible layout whose CSS grid layout classes are applied programatically based on region content. The theme includes a default favicon, default logo, default user picture, and a custom maintenance page. The layout supports primary links but not secondary links.

Content Sections

The theme's structure is based on the concept of horizontal bands of content. Of the five bands, only the title header does not have a block region.

+------------------------+
| Title Header & Search  |
+------------------------+
| Sub-Header (4 regions) |
+------------------------+
| Content (3 regions)    |
|                        |
|                        |
|                        |
+------------------------+
| Bottom (4 regions)     |
+------------------------+
| Footer (1 region)      |
+------------------------+

Block regions in the theme's primary content bands are dynamically sized based on whether or not their adjacent regions are empty. The direction in which empty space is filled (left-to-right or right-to-left) in each section can be specified in the theme's settings.

The theme will place its default banner image in Sub-Header band if all the regions in that band are empty.

Dynamically Expanding Regions

The dynamically sized regions are assigned CSS grid sizes programatially. This allows for less complex CSS and allows the direction of empty space consumption to be specified.

Sub-Header and Bottom Bands

The Sub-Header and Bottom bands each contain four (4) regions: Left, Left Center, Right Center, and Right.

+----+----+----+----+
| L  | LC | RC |  R |
+----+----+----+----+

If the Left Center (LC) region is empty and the section's expansion direction is specified as left-to-right, the Left (L) region will fill the empty space left by the empty Left Center (LC) region resulting in the following:

+----+----+----+----+
| L       | RC |  R |
+----+----+----+----+

In this example, if the section's expansion direction were right-to-left instead, the empty space would be consumed by the Right Center (RC) region instead:

+----+----+----+----+
| L  |      RC |  R |
+----+----+----+----+

Content Band

The content band has three regions: Content, Left Sidebar, and Right Sidebar. The region 'Content' always occupies a minimum width of 50% of the band.

+----+----+----+----+
| C       | LS | RS |
+----+----+----+----+

Aside from this difference, the behavior of regions in this band is identical to the behavior of the Sub-Header and Bottom bands.

Utagawa Hiroshige

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 – 1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, and one of the last great artists in that tradition. In addition to being the inspiration for this theme, his works also influenced the works of Monet and Van Gogh. More information about Hiroshige and images of his paintings can be found in the Wikipedia entry about him: Utagawa Hiroshige.
