Minimum Theme

Minimum theme for Textpattern CMS. See a working demo here or fork it on github.

A huge thank you goes to Amit Varia, who inspired this theme as well as Phil Wareham, who added a great deal of magic touch.

Minimum enables you to publish your writings, but it does not allow you to:

  • use comments
  • use categories, sections, or even tags
  • use article images (technically you can use images inside articles, just no article image)
  • include a contact form
  • hook up to social networks or have sharing buttons
  • show off a massive link collection

Minimum is a theme that lets you write. It embraces the golden ratio. What else would you need?


Getting up and running is a breeze. Minimum is guaranteed to work on Textpattern 4.5.4. All you need is grab a copy of cxc_templates, install it and copy the minimum theme folder content to your tpl directory.

Refer to the Readme for more detailed installation instructions.

More Information

Have a look at for some more information about the theme.

PS: Since Minimum is so limited in what it does, changing most preference settings does not have much of an effect. It is, however, suggested that you have nice URLs (/article should be just fine) and disable the comments.

Looks very attractive theme. I might try this one when opening a new TXP site.

Thanks, Petri!

I suggest you hold off just a little longer, version 1.3 is just around the corner – the slider/more info button is going to be more responsive then.
