Simple Times is a free HTML5 WordPress theme inspired by the look of The New York Times website. It is clean, easy to read, places a strong emphasis on simplicity and still manages to be full-featured. Simple Times has numerous options including:
- Customizable Background Color and Image
- Customizable Header Image
- Google Analytics
- Facebook and Twitter Buttons
- Twitter Widget
- Custom Category Pages
- Author Index Pages
- Threaded Comments (aka Nested Replies)
The default look is very vanilla, but by using the “Theme Options” you can easily add your own header image and background as well as include your own CSS. In no time you can add some personality to your blog without knowing too much about web design. Check out our Example Gallery to get some inspiration.
This theme is provided free of charge under the terms of the GNU Public License (as is WordPress). The theme has been developed by the staff of the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University as our way of contributing back to the WordPress community.
The various posts and pages on this site are part of the WordPress Unit Tests so you can see how the theme works in a variety of situations.
