Compact – Free WordPress Theme

Last Updated on by

Here we have a very nice looking one column WordPress theme, originally designed by It is quite a compact download, taking up no more than 16 KiB. There isn’t any sidebar or footer space, so therefore no widgets. Hopefully it will be useful to those looking for a theme without many bells and whistles. You may need to exclude some pages from the top list in case it overflows.

    Awesome, thanks for the port leland/ =)

    Is it possible to increase the font size? Nice, simple theme, btw.

  • Leland

    No problem Sean, my pleasure.

    @CBM, sure it’s possible through a little CSS edit. Are you talking about the main content body?

  • CBM

    Hi Leland, yes, the main content body.

  • Leland

    body {
    background: #621935 url(images/bg.jpg) fixed repeat-x;
    font: 11px/1.6 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

    That’s near the top of the style.css file. Try increasing the numbers next to font: slightly and see if that helps.

    That’s it, it works, thank you Leland!

    Lots of great themes here! This one is almost too simple for me though.

    Very minimal and yet eye catching theme. Great work.

  • Leland

    @CBM: Glad it worked!

    Thanks for commenting.

    I have looked on the we and found only how to add additional sidebars but not how to add a sidebar to a theme that has none.

    any help would be appreciated..
