The Minimum Theme

It is minimalistic. For when all you wish to do is write.

Forget about sections, categories, or even tags. Even if those are still present in the Textpattern admin area, those are not used by the Minimum theme.

Did I mention it is responsive? Don’t know what that means? Try resizing your browser window and watch what those letters and images do automatically. Just like the want to be seen ;-)

  2. Install the cxc_templates plugin and activate it. Don’t forget to make sure the tpl directory exists and works.
  3. Grab a copy of Minimum Theme, extract it and place the directory inside the tpl directory used by cxc_templates.
  4. Navigate to your Textpattern admin URL, go to Extensions, and use the cxc_templates tab to import the theme

  • Modify or even delete this article? The article list is the place to start.
  • Change this site’s name, or modify the style of the URLs? It’s all up to your preferences.
  • Get yourself acquainted with Textile, the humane web text generator which comes with Textpattern? The basics are simple. If you want to learn more about Textile, you can dig into an extensive manual later.
  • Be guided through your Textpattern first steps by completing some basic tasks?
  • Study the Textpattern Semantic Model?
  • Add another user, or extend the capabilities with third party plugins you discovered from the central plugin directory at Textpattern Resources?
  • Dive in and learn by trial and error? Then please note:
    • When you write an article you assign it to a section of your site.
    • Sections use a page template and a style as an output scaffold.
    • Page templates use HTML and Textpattern tags (like this: <txp:article />) to build the markup.
    • Some Textpattern tags use forms, which are building blocks for reusable snippets of code and markup you may build and use at your discretion.

There are a host of Frequently Asked Questions to help you get started.

Textpattern tags, their attributes and values are as well explained as sampled at the User Documentation, where you will also find valuable tips and tutorials.

If all else fails, there’s a whole crowd of friendly, helpful people over at the Textpattern support forum. Come and pay a visit!
