I have been receiving requests for a more simple, “minimal” theme for some time now. My goal here was to give users the same functionality found in most of my other page based themes in a more modest shell. Minimal is a great theme for those who want to give their blog a truly simple and elegant feel without sacrificing any of the advanced features you have come to expect from ElegantThemes. The colors are easy on the eye, and the overall minimalist approach to the design makes for a relaxing and userfriendly experience for your visitors. For more info check out the Live Demo, or view the Features Page for more details.
1. Easy to Manage – The integration of ePanel makes managing Minimal a breeze.
2. Blog Section and BlogStyle Post Format – Even though the demo is page-based, you will see there is a blog section as well. Furthermore, you can always switch to BlogStyle mode which will replace your homepage with a more traditional blog layout. You can also choose to populate the featured slider with your favorite posts instead of pages. This makes the theme very versatile, hopefully satisfying the needs of both the traditional blogger as well as those who plan to use the theme to create a more page-based website.
3. Two Unique Color Schemes – The only colors that seemed to make sense for this design were a dark a light neutral gray. If the lighter version isn’t your style, then be sure to give the dark variation a try.
Let me know what you think of the design. As always, your input is appreciated. Please leave a comment with your thoughts!
