Basic is a feature rich free blogging design that was released by Themify at the start of the month. As the name implies, the theme has a basic layout however this allows you to customise the design to your own preference more easily. It has a clean design that was coded using HTML5 and CSS3.
5 theme skins are included with the design and there 4 widget areas in the footer. Social media icons can be integrated easily too and it has good support for child themes.
Where the theme comes into it’s own is the theme settings area. It uses the Themify framework and is gives you complete control over your design. You can integrate your Feedburner RSS feed details in the general settings area and add custom code to the header and footer (for ad tracking like Google Analytics).
The theme layout is easily changed through the settings area. You can set the sidebar on the left or right or remove it altogether. There is also 7 different post layout settings. Meta information like titles, dates and thumbnails can easily be switched on and off too.
Every aspect of the design can be modified in the settings area. You can style the background, headings, fonts, navigation, header, logo, sidebar and footer in this section. You can add custom CSS too.
There are 5 skins to choose from; three variations of black and two variations of white and blue. You can choose to have no skin if you want.
You don’t have to worry about losing your designs as you can export and import your creations. The design is responsive so looks great on desktop browsers and on mobile devices like phones or tablets.
Basic is a fantastic blogging design that gives you a huge amount of freedom on how the simplistic design is styled. One of the best free WordPress themes released this month. Recommended :)
