Reminiscent of primordial grid designs used in different print mediums, Basic Maths is one of the most elegant, and smartly-designed themes we’ve ever seen. We are thrilled to have it now available for WordPress.com sites as a Premium Theme.
Apart from a thoughtful design, Basic Maths also offers some cool features, including the possibility to choose custom colors for links and other visual elements, helping you make this theme feel more personal to your site. If you want to make a statement about how important your content is, Basic Maths could be the answer.

I’d love to see how the custom header fits on this.
Mar 30th at 6:54 pm
Don’t like it.
Mar 30th at 6:56 pm
Wow, I look forward to seeing this theme around the web! Very sharp! (I’d consider it for one of my blogs if not for the $$).
Mar 30th at 6:57 pm
Very clean. Makes for easy focus on content.
Mar 30th at 7:00 pm
Wow, this theme looks very professional. Reminds me of a clean, modern newspaper layout. With the support, clearly worth the $75. I’m not sure I have a blog that’s worthy of this theme right now, but I hope to be able to use it in the future.
Mar 30th at 7:16 pm
Don’t like basic themes, hate paying money for making custom CSS
Mar 30th at 7:25 pm
Need more colors
Mar 30th at 7:35 pm
Too clean but very ordered.
Mar 30th at 7:42 pm
Looks clean! If I had a blog about Math or Computer Science maybe I’d use it… that being said I blog about Economics, so given the nature of the field maybe its not such a stretch… smooth looks and the color customization is a must!
Mar 30th at 8:00 pm
This one is too busy for my liking, and I don’t really get a math vibe from it.
Mar 30th at 8:07 pm
I don’t like it either. (It’s very boring.)
Mar 30th at 8:23 pm
Simply amazing. I love it!
Mar 30th at 8:33 pm
This has to be my favorite theme so far, but I don’t get enough traffic to justify the purchase. Will there ever be a free ‘stripped down’ version of this? At least, until I can convince my wife of the “investment opportunities” of going premium?
Mar 30th at 8:36 pm
Excellent theme. Would have used it were it not for the 75$ fee.
Mar 30th at 9:30 pm
What a very simple and awesome theme. Thank you WP! Keep the themes coming. We like that.
Mar 30th at 9:40 pm
Way too basic, or better said, simple.
Mar 30th at 9:48 pm
I love how the selected text appears in blue. Blue is so calming.
Mar 30th at 9:53 pm
I’m really digging the grid — makes the info very clear and accessible.
Mar 30th at 10:18 pm
“Basic” Math sounds great. If it said University Math I would be hesitant.
Mar 30th at 10:31 pm
It’s awesome what we can do with this theme… the customization is really nice, and with cool typography the result could be just great!
Mar 30th at 10:42 pm
Nice theme—please make more free themes, too. Like Vigilance.
Mar 30th at 10:49 pm
I don’t like it very much, but it’s clean and simple.
Mar 30th at 10:52 pm
Very neat! But almost too neat… Great job though!
Mar 30th at 10:58 pm
Beautifully clean. You should get Allan’s Autofocus theme on here, that’s stunning too.
Mar 30th at 11:26 pm
Yes, I agree with ‘john hayden’: it’s obviously a modern newspaper layout, and looks cool and ideal. I hope to use it in the future.
Mar 30th at 11:27 pm
Not sure I ‘get’ this one. It’ll be interesting to see how it’s used.
Mar 30th at 11:34 pm
Ooh, love the custom colors for links!
Mar 31st at 12:00 am
A little pricey.
Mar 31st at 12:04 am
Too much use of grid lines, makes it look dated or awkward. Yes, I know some people LOVE Excel and this would be totally for them. But that’s not a design feature, that’s doing mathematical calculations and being able to read all the dense, fine numbers.
Mar 31st at 12:31 am
Well, I still like Grid Focus, though.
Mar 31st at 1:46 am
Nice theme. However, I’ve just moved to Choco… and my visitors just love it. Thanks a ton.
Mar 31st at 2:07 am
Clean as a whistle. Nice!
Mar 31st at 4:00 am
I don’t really care for it. I like more fun, feminine but customizable designs. What is up with all these paid designs lately? I guess it would be okay if they were flashy, but there is nothing exciting about them.
Mar 31st at 4:44 am
It has a lot going for navigation. Great for displaying your stats and archives, but I don’t think it would meet my needs.
Mar 31st at 5:40 am
Clean and smart, just how I like em. Nicely done WP.
Mar 31st at 6:50 am
Very nice. Another one to try.
Mar 31st at 7:29 am
I am not too sure I like all the Premium Themes coming out lately.
The biggest thing that attracted me to WP.com was that the themes at least were free. While I understand that WP.com has to make money, I personally contribute by paying for a hosting upgrade.
I would also like to know whether the Theme Team is planning to come up with special mobile friendly themes (flexible width!!!) in the future, considering that in the future, the Internet will be mostly accessed by mobile devices ?
Mar 31st at 7:41 am
I didn’t like it.
Mar 31st at 8:40 am
Wow…. good idea, it just like the name of it, kind of sistematical desgin.. more text than image. good work!
Mar 31st at 9:30 am
I can’t stand too much blank spaces. Not good for your eyes.
Mar 31st at 10:03 am
Nice, different.. I like it!
Mar 31st at 10:21 am
Simple and elegant, yet a bit serious.
Mar 31st at 10:49 am
I simply love this design simplicity. Beautiful!
Really like the theme I am using now and looked very long to find and settle for it, but this one is very tempting…
Mar 31st at 11:39 am
I love it… Good job… Thanks
Mar 31st at 1:02 pm
Seems to look nice. Now if you could turn off the iPad theme on the showcase I might even be able to have a closer look at it….
Mar 31st at 1:25 pm
Love the ‘Asmodeus’ category…
Mar 31st at 3:14 pm
Loved this theme.
Mar 31st at 7:31 pm
Mar 31st at 7:48 pm
Fantastic! It’s elegant and neat. A great theme! Well done!
Mar 31st at 8:49 pm
Yes, it’s a lovely new theme.
Mar 31st at 9:28 pm
This is fresh! Thanks.
Mar 31st at 10:29 pm
Why is it every blogger loves every new theme as if its the best thing in the world. For once I would like to see someone say they dont like it or the designer did a bad job. I’m not saying this one is done badly but its not very appealing to the eye. I think why Rusty Grunge for example, was so good was the colors. If your gonna show something off show it with color. I know you can customize and add color but you should show it with color. And the name ‘Basic Maths’ it reminds me too much off school, better yet math which is my least favorite subject. Seriously dude where do you get these name? Shouldn’t they be more like the actual theme?
Apr 1st at 1:05 am
Interesting theme… It’s really unique and simple but growing up, I despise math with a passion so this is out of my style, haha.
Apr 1st at 3:31 am
I like it; it’s got a newspaper feel to it… too bad it would not look that good on my site.
Apr 1st at 4:43 am
Cool, but I’ll stick to my current theme
Apr 1st at 9:00 am
Simple and cool.
Apr 1st at 9:46 am
Absolutely math Nice, good job
Apr 1st at 10:12 am
Apr 1st at 10:12 am
As a maths junky, I’m loving it!!
Apr 1st at 2:03 pm
I hate maths but I liked Basic Maths
Apr 1st at 4:52 pm
Now “Basic” doesn’t mean basic… it’s more than enhanced.
Apr 1st at 7:18 pm
Good name “Basic Math”. It reminds me of my Calculus Professor Mr. Harper. Very clean, organized and professional
Apr 1st at 10:37 pm
Apr 2nd at 1:42 am
I think the theme is great, and it will be, if it’s fully flexible and customisable.
Apr 2nd at 2:43 am
Cool theme! I will try it, thanks!
Apr 2nd at 5:59 am
Oh gosh, I don’t like this one at all, sorry WP Team! I hate math too, maybe that’s why? Just too many lines, and too much going on all over the place here. That’s ok though, can’t win ‘em all. A for Effort?
Apr 2nd at 8:25 am
Really cool… I always love light themes.
Apr 2nd at 12:35 pm
Nice and clean. And, while not for me personally, it is another great addition. Thanks.
Apr 2nd at 2:21 pm
Hmm. The first new theme I am not liking. But doesn’t matter! I already love my recent theme
Apr 2nd at 6:00 pm
It is cool, but it is also overpriced.
Apr 2nd at 6:19 pm
Too simple and plain.
Apr 2nd at 7:28 pm
Very nice this theme, thanks for sharing!
Apr 2nd at 9:35 pm
One of the more intriguing designs in a while! It doesn’t fit my site’s scheme, but it’s pretty cool! Thank you!
Apr 2nd at 9:56 pm
This is the best theme I have seen yet. It is simply stunning. I will start a new blog just to use it!
Apr 2nd at 11:58 pm
Whoa, Math. It makes me chill. (Way back in my former course in college.) This theme is good!
Apr 3rd at 1:34 pm
Too busy for me. I’d be afraid it would turn viewers away because of cognitive overload.
Apr 3rd at 9:13 pm
I’m not too keen on this theme but with so many wonderful WordPress bloggers I know someone will like this! Keep ‘em coming.
Apr 3rd at 9:39 pm
Well, Its fine but its seems confusing to get around and stuff.
Apr 3rd at 11:02 pm
Nice clean design and one I would love to have on my blog, but $75 for something only a few people read. Not for me yet!
Apr 4th at 12:03 am
Need more colors and WordPress magic.
Apr 4th at 12:12 am
I LOVE this!
Apr 4th at 12:55 am
Nice. If only it were for free…
Apr 4th at 9:39 am
Nice. Been waiting for this theme to be available… Subtraction.
Apr 4th at 5:43 pm
Apr 4th at 6:55 pm
Apr 4th at 7:28 pm
We need more themes with dark content area and light text as these are easier on the eyes than white space. Why are only a few WP themes like this? I changed my blog theme recently and I only found one that I liked: Modularity Llte, with black content area. There should be some other options for the color of the content area. For example, I would like to change a WP website theme to a blue content area.
Apr 4th at 8:10 pm
I wish I could afford this unfortunately I can’t. It’d be nice to see some free themes I know they are a lot… but still
Apr 4th at 11:00 pm
Looks kind’a dumb to me.
Apr 5th at 3:50 am
Love this! But are there options for the home page of the blog? I have featured images for many posts, and like there to only be a preview on the front page vs having the entire post show up. I adore how each post looks, but would need to know just how may options there are for customizing the front page before even considering laying out the purchase price on this one.
Apr 5th at 5:12 am
Cool theme, but costly.
Apr 5th at 10:07 am
Wow, looks really great.
Apr 5th at 11:37 am
Exelllent job, bro. I love it.
Apr 5th at 11:50 am
Oh, I like it! Very clean and easy to read. Definitely considering switching.
Apr 5th at 2:57 pm
I really like it. It reminds me of a newspaper layout. Good job WP.
Apr 6th at 1:13 am
Don’t like it. Way too basic for me.
