Light. Clean. Bare. Minimalist. Simple. Minimalissimplistic.
A Simple Theme for WordPress …
Minimalissimplistic is a theme for WordPress that has the following features :
- Lightest layout : few SQL queries, no image, easy on resources and bandwidth
- Elastic design : mouse scroll + control = everything resizes in harmony
- Did I mention it's minimalist ?
- Yet nice. You'll love it. Ok, like it. Anyway I promise you won't hate it.
… but more than a simple Theme
Minimalissimplistic was made to serve as an example of what WordPress Theme Toolkit makes possible in just a few lines of code : through an admin menu, you can configure several things to suit your liking :
- Overall width of the layout
- Menu alignment (left hand or right hand)
- Text color
- Background color
- Optionnal "Aside" category
- … and more
The point here is not to show how cool these features are (this is pretty basic stuff :), but how simply I've implemented them into the theme thanks to WordPress Theme Toolkit.
Indeed, adding an admin menu to the theme and writing functions to handle options required … 10 lines to edit. Find out about WordPress Theme Toolkit and the potential of this tool for Theme authors.
You'll find everything that was needed to create the admin menu in Minimalissimplistic in the theme file functions.php. Look at this file … and be amazed by its simplicity.
