Jason Schuller of Press75, a WordPress theme shop, has set out to simplify the process of creating a website rather than dealing with a complex CMS like WordPress. Similar to what to ‘Visual Idiot’ is doing with Anchor CMS.
It’s called Leeflets. You can follow it’s development process here.
The functionality of the theme (leeflet) defines the admin, which is opposite from WordPress.
- Intended for ultra simplistic websites
- Simple in the install, usage, and template creation processes
- Literally just drag and drop with no need for databases
- Themes are called Leeflets
- Built on Twitter Bootstrap, responsive on any device
- All content fields and lists come directly from the leeflet
8bit, the guys behind the Standard Theme, have launched version 3.0 of the theme while also updating the landing page.
Immediately, the new page requires less scrolling so the structure of the layout has been improved. The “8bit about” header is gone and the information has been moved to the footer. There is also a bigger support button showing their importance on their community efforts.
This move puts even more importance on the Standard Theme brand. Speaking of the brand, the icon for the Standard Theme also has been upgraded.
Overall, the page makes the Standard Theme feel like a well-respected product.
Do CMS tools stone creativity in terms of web design?
