New Theme: Truly Minimal

    It has almost everything what I would look for, except too much white space wasted on the top right hand corner. The WP version doesn’t resemble the original at the designer’s demo site. If the header image is not preferred than you could have moved the menus next to the blog title or to the right, like the original.

    Clean and minimalistic theme, looks great!

    Amazing how trends go from this sort of thing to flashy as can be and back again.


    Wow… this is pretty cool. With all the clutter in my life… this is like a breath of fresh air.

    I’ll have to keep this in mind when it’s time to re-design HipsterApproved. Thanks!

    Does this theme work with WordAds?

    I think this is a lovely theme – nice size fonts, well displayed blockquotes, nice H2, H3, etc. rendering, good framing around images – It’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into this.

    Too clean for me; I need a bit of clutter to match my personality :)

    Thanks! :)

    Hi Caroline,
    I like Truly Minimal and the features it has and will give it a try on my personal blog. Is it too much to ask that future themes could include the ability to change font color of Site Titles and links without having to purchase a $30.00 annually renewable custom design upgrade? I sure hope so because being able to do this on other free hosted blogs like those at Blogger is common and flatly refuse to pay annually just to change them.

      Hi timethief! Thanks, really glad you like Truly Minimal.

      You can change the color of your site title under Appearance -> Header (or in the Customizer), this is the case with most themes. As of right now, there are no plans to include additional custom colors options in future themes, but we appreciate your feedback!

    Hi, great theme, I’ve just switched to it on my blog. The only issue is that my front page has now changed from showing excerpts to full posts, is there a way of changing back? I’ve written out custom excerpts for all my posts. Cheers!

    I just activated this new theme and I like it except for some reason when I go to change the title to my title and save it in the
    customize theme window, it doesn’t change the title from ‘Truly Minimal’ to mine. Am I not doing something right?
    Also, I don’t see where I can upload my own Header image. Is this not possible?

    I like that theme so much! :-)
