The Common Blog – A Minimal WordPress Theme

in Blog

Big isn’t always beautiful. The Common Blog is a free minimalistic design from Plebeian that is perfect for those are looking for something very basic.

At first glance the theme looks a bit dated however it was designed with WordPress 3.1 in mind so has support for post thumbnails, post formats, custom backgrounds, widgets and menus. They are also adding support for custom header images and and editor style feature that shows the content in the editor as it will be displayed on the live page.

    Wanted to say thanks for the kind words about my theme. Version 1.5.5 is not live that has the updates you mention in your post plus some more.

    Again thanks for the review.
