Soft. Grey. Elegant. Simple. Light. Cute ? Cute. This is miniBlog.
Originally, miniBlog is a template by Six Shooter Media. I found it so nice that I thought it deserved to be a real theme rather than a one page template :)
- light and lightweight with less than 5 kb of images and background.
- centered and fixed width
- ideal for personal blog light on content and graphics
Under the hoods, I added a few features that WordPress and my Theme Toolkit allow : an admin menu, integrated into your admin area, that allows configuration of a few things :
- Optional Asides support : define which category you want to appear as "Asides", and you're done
- Third party feed support : use Feedburner or the like ? Your feed URL in your theme will be the correct one
- Special Announcement : got a special sticky notice to display for some time ? Nothing to hack, just enter it in the admin panel
- Toggable sidebar elements : want or don't want to display the calendar ? your archives ? your links ? Everything is just a click away

I'm just a humble packager for WordPress. All credits go to James Koster from Six Shooter Media. You will find there other quality templates, and everything is open-source and free. Ain't this a wonderful world ? Thanks you James :)
Pattern used in this theme was made from material available at Squidfingers Patterns. Don't go there, there are so many patterns that you will lose your mind trying to chose one.
The admin menu is powered by the WordPress Theme Toolkit, an uberleet piece of code made by someone very very nice and smart, that makes adding an admin menu into a theme as easily as editing 3 lines. Damn, doesn't this sound amazing ?
