VERSION 1.3.2 RELEASED – with tons of new features!

SIMPLISSIMO. Less clutter, more focus on content. Well, this is something we strongly believe in, and therefore the design of this theme follows that as a guideline. Simplissimo features a clean and minimalistic design so that it really is candy to the eye. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

NOTE 1: For those upgrading from version 1.0 to version 1.2 please note that previously created content needs to be redone.

NOTE 2: For those upgrading from version 1.2 to version 1.3 please note that you need to redo the theme options settings as most of them are now moved into skins.

NOTE 3: For those upgrading to version 1.3.2 and later please note that you need to redo the theme options settings. There now is an option called Theme Settings on the left menu where you can change all theme options.

Main Features

  • Skins – You can now create skins for your website. With a skin you can basically control appearance and functionality of every little part of the theme. By default the theme comes bundled with 2 skins: Light Skin and Dark Skin. We have also implemented a developer mode, where site owners will be able to work on a new skin, while all their users will still see the old skin. And coming soon, we will offer the ability to show a different skin based on user language.
