An amazingly clean and simple blog theme.

This theme is great for anyone who simply wants to write about stuff and not worry about anything else. Minimal setup, clean layout - it just works.


  • Uses the official RainLab.Blog plugin.
  • Very customizable. Text, avatar, font size, color scheme (blue, red, green, orange, pink, purple and gray) and even the social buttons in the menu section can easily be changed.
  • Pagination.
  • Mobile friendly.
  • Super cool buttons for sharing blog posts across popular social networks.
  • Blog post details and author name is automatically reflected in the page title and description. schema.org is used to structure blog posts for SEO.


After installing Simply Blog, you need to configure some settings, like your name, a short description etc. To do this, hit the Customize button right next to the Activate button on the Front-end theme page.

Here you can change things like Blog Name (required), Avatar Picture (required), Blog Description (required), Color Scheme, Social Links and more!
