A Responsive theme for Desktop, Tablet and Phone with built in Customizer

Product Description

Barebones, introduced as our bundled core theme with Simple:Press version 5.6.3, has a modern, crisp and more minimal styling. It utilizes glyphs to reduce http requests and boost performance. While it fully supports our 'overlay' styling technology, Barebones comes complete with a simple color customizer making it easy and quick to style your forum to match the colors of your website.

Note that any Simple:Press theme sits on top of your WordPress theme and to fully achieve Barebones responsiveness on different platforms then a WordPress responsive theme is also required.

All theme screenshots are taken from our support forum and may contain elements, such as custom icons, that are not pre-supplied but can be added by the end-user or, in some cases, from additional plugins.

Child Theme Framework

If you need to customize your Barebones theme then the Barebones Child Framework is what you need.
