simple-microblog

This is a minimalist microblogging WordPress theme. After learning about the micro.blog project, I decided that I wanted to host my own microblog and use the micro.blog service to cross-post to Twitter, Facebook, and micro.blog.

Particulars

  • Header image is the gravatar pulled in from the administrator's email address. To change the header image, change the administrator's email address and/or change your main image at Gravatar.
  • There is an option in the post editor to suppress the title for posts on the homepage and single pages
  • There is no main menu at the top. If you want a menu to get to sub pages, create a menu, then add a custom menu widget to the sidebar widget area.
  • The footer widget area is enabled. You can add any widget you like to the footer.
  • Comments are turned off globally
  • This theme makes it easy to verify your website with Micro.blog. In the WordPress admin, go to Settings > Micro.blog Verification and put in your Micro.blog username.
  • Fontawesome is included via maxcdn because I like using icons.

  • Tested up to: 4.7.4
  • Stable tag: 1.0.0
  • License: GNU General Public License v2
