Blog Simpleby Automattic

As the name says, Blog Simple theme is a simple blog-centric theme. Its unique and bold two-tone design sets your blog apart from the crowd. Not only can you choose a theme color from four suggested colors, but you can also pick any color from a color-picker.

Theme Options

In addition to the aforementioned theme color, you can optionally add links to your profiles in Facebook, Twitter, and also your email address with nifty icons in the footer.

Featured Post

Blog Simple displays the latest sticky post as a featured post on the front page of your blog page. If you don’t have any sticky posts, it simply displays the latest post in your blog.

Widget Areas

Blog Simple offers four widget areas:

The Primary Sidebar displays search, archives, and meta widgets by default.

Do you feel the need to have lots of widgets? No problem! Blog Simple has three optional widget areas in the footer.

Responsive Design

Blog Simple is designed with responsive design in mind. It provides a tailored layout depending on the device you are using. This makes your blog look good not only on desktop browsers, but also on devices with smaller screens, such as the iPad and iPhone.

Feeling creative?

As you can see in the main menu, Blog Simple goes well with icons! It’s a neat idea to add icons to your custom menu in the sidebar. If you are familiar with CSS, Custom Menus, Custom Menu Widgets, and the Custom Design Upgrade that comes with the Premium Plan and Business Plan, you can associate icons with your menu items. Pretty neat, huh?
