SPLOT Writer

This theme allows people to publish their writing, including media content, without needing to login or understand the backend of WordPress.

Once installed the theme allows individuals to generate content online using an editor interface inside their browser. Writers can also add content by cutting and then pasting into the editor from word-processing software such as MS Word or Google Docs, carrying forward most structural formatting.

Because it requires no login or CMS knowledge, this theme is great for projects where multiple people are contributing or for classroom applications where many individuals need to publish content on the same site. It focuses on the writing rather than broader, back-end features of WordPress.

The site invisibly logs in visitors to a special account to make available advanced publication and editing tools, but those individuals will not need to navigate the WordPress dashboard or login structure. The theme allows individuals to publish anonymously, or under an assumed name, or their own name, or whatever.

Calling Card Template

Calling Card theme screenshot.

A configurable WordPress Theme version of HTML5up Highlights Theme made for the internet by @cogdog.

For simple content, this can be a one page site, but use of the WordPress more tag allows for longer content on a single page template, while what is above the tag appears on the home page of the site.

The top/splash screen is configured in the WordPress Customizer. The backdrop image is managed by the Header Background controls in the Customizer, which means you have an option of loading several images that can be set to appear at random on page load.

Subsequent sections as you scroll down (or use the automatic generated menu) are managed as separate posts. If the post has a featured image, on a wide screen the background image will change to it. As the page is scrolled farther, these images continue to change.

Posts without featured images use the default theme header image in the background.

Each front section provides bottom arrow navigation to the next section as well as an edit this link for logged in users so they can directly edit the content.

The bottom footer can be customized with a social media icon menu and a custom footer menu text.

Highlights works best for smaller amounts of content in each section, it’s meant for high level summaries, and you can use hypertext links to expand to other sites. But still, some people want a lot of content in this site, so a features was added to mark the opening bits of a post to appear on the front, with a link to see expanded content in a single page
