Lighter – A Lightweight Child Theme

Last Updated on by

I came across Martín Fernández‘s website a while back, and noticed it was using a modified version of the Lightweight theme. Check out what he did with it below.

As you can see, it’s still a light theme with a slightly different color scheme. It really works great to showcase his graphics work.

I got in touch with Martín and he agreed to let me release his modified WordPress theme here on Theme Lab. I converted it to a child theme, so the only things in the file are a stylesheet and a screeenshot. Download it here. Check out the demo here.

Make sure you know how to install a child theme, so you’ll need the Lightweight theme uploaded as well as the Ligher child theme. Activate “Lighter” in your WordPress admin.

    If you just tried to download it, and found a broken link, try again now. I forgot to upload the file.

    @Ahmed: Indeed it is! I think the simple design really helps the content stand out though.
