Free WordPress Theme: ‘Content’

A clean WordPress Theme for you!

Since we’re right smack dab in the middle of walking through a series that highlights how to best create great blog content I thought it would be time to release the first TentBlogger WordPress Theme!

This one is simple called ‘Content’ because that’s what it’s all about: Showcasing your content prominently with little distraction. 

The goal of this WordPress Theme, along with the other two that I hope to release soon, is to help you re-think your content strategy and to help you really focus on developing great content first and then work on the rest later.

In fact, for many of you this might be a great WordPress Theme to use temporarily as you clean up your content, re-focus your efforts, and/or re-launch your blog, especially as you’re working through the series. Install it, use it, and then find a new one after you’re done!

But, you might find it simple enough to keep you focused for much longer than a temporary install – who knows?

For those designers in the house it can surely provide a strong base on which to start.

Features:

One of the neat things that I’ve done is apply a lot of the core principles of good WordPress Theme development (found in Standard Theme) and offer them in a form that is free for those bloggers who are just getting started.

You’ll find quality code, a simple visual structure, and even a few admin options to work with in the back:

Content WordPress Theme Admin Options

As listed above:

  • Navigation options for Default or WordPress 3.0 menus
  • Location of navigation above or below header
  • Image or text header with URL link to logo
  • Sidebar left or right
  • Google Analytics

Of course, you get the awesomeness of a clean UI and look as well!

Preview and Download:

I’ve created a new Demo Site for this WordPress Theme and the few others I hope to release soon:

  • Preview TentBlogger’s Content WordPress Theme - Sorry, no longer available! Just download to try it out.
  • Download it here!
  • Update! Download it here! If you had the previous version just update the functions.php file here.

Feel free to share your thoughts and let me know if you use it and customize it! Don’t forget to check out all the other WordPress related goodies that I’ve got over here!

Finally, it’s worth noting that this theme is based off a free theme from WordPress.com – the code is refactored, cleaned up, and streamlined with additional admin panel and SEO value! Enjoy!
