WP Simply Read

Simply Read is a minimalist blog theme with a huge home page slider and a masonry style layout for latest posts. It also has a full width static page template, separate widget areas for pages and posts, social media links, optional author bios and simple color scheme options to make customizing the theme very easy.

This theme is compatible with WordPress Version 3.4 and above and it supports the new theme customization API.

All the image graphics and icons bundled with this theme are created by the author and licensed under the GPL, as is the whole theme itself.

Supported browsers: Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari and IE9+ (Some css3 styles like shadows and rounder corners are not supported by IE8 and below).

    Please I am having problems with your team…
    Anytime I publish a post, I discover that some text missing or times words cluster.
    For Instance,
    ‘and lots more’ will appear ‘as and more’ OR
    ‘and lots more’ will appear as ‘andlots more’
    Please help me look into this because I cant afford to change theme

    1. I really don’t know what is happening here. Can you please provide a specific example? Maybe take some screenshots of the content before posting and then once published? Also what plugins are you using? I don’t think this will have anything to do with the theme itself. It is more likely some kind of plugin issue, but impossible to say without knowing more.

    Hi Charles, can you please tell me if there’s a way to edit the footer in WP Simply Read theme. I see “Powered by WordPress and WP Simply Read” in the footer and I’m not able to remove it.


    1. There is no settings for the footer, but you are welcome to edit the template and change it as you like. I would recommend setting up a child theme first so that any future theme updates do not overwrite your customizations.
