I get requests from people quite often asking where or if they can get the theme used on Premium WordPress. Because the theme was specifically made for this site, the answer to those questions has been you can’t and no respectively…until now. I am pleased to present Premium Minimalist a FREE skin (or child theme if like) for Thesis that will give you a design similar to this website. You must have the Thesis Theme to use this skin. You can get Thesis here.
Why a skin for Thesis and not a standalone theme?
Because Thesis is a true foundation for your Website—a core code framework that can accommodate any design or layout customization you might wish to make in the future. Thesis isn’t just a blog theme, it’s a WordPress master framework that allows you to select colours, font styles, even the number, location and width of the columns (You can make ANY 1, 2, or 3 column layout) – all without having to dig into the pages of code. The inbuilt options panel allows you to easily control and customise almost any aspect of the framework with ease. The Thesis theme also boats the strongest SEO of any theme on the market due to its expertly coded and optimized HTML + CSS + PHP framework.
To install this skin simply unzip the downloaded file, upload and replace the ‘custom’ folder within the Thesis Theme directory (/themes/thesis/custom/) overwriting the existing custom folder. If you are already using the Thesis theme make sure you back up your existing files in the custom directory first, and if you so desire, add into Premium Minimalist any other changes you have already made to files in your custom folder.
In Thesis version 1.6+ with its extensive in-built design controls it is very easy to create the look of the “premium minimalist” theme, thus making this skin redundant now. Download the Thesis theme here.
