HTML5 Minimalist WordPress Theme

Posted by on Mar 21, 2011 in Code, Web Design | 3 Comments

I really like this blog’s (my old) theme. It was developed by Jeff Star about five years ago. So when I read this article on Smashing Magazine about how to upgrade a WordPress theme to HTML5 I thought I’d update Minimalist. I changed the form styling, and some of the typography, but it’s mostly unchanged and it should validate as HTML5. I just think there’s something ironic about a minimalist bleeding-edge theme.

Jeff released Minimalist for free under the open source GPL so I figured I would release my updated version too. Jeff’s installation instructions are still included along with a complete set of files and images.
