Split Me

Version 2.4.4

Available here: https://wordpress.org/themes/split-me

Split Me is a simple minimal WordPress theme wich contains no sidebar, no slider, just a simple menu and a large area for your thumbnails. It was inspired by medium.com

Split Me uses:




You can see a demo here: http://splitme.mwanoz.fr/


You can install the theme through the WordPress installer under "Themes" > "Install themes" by searching for it. Alternatively you can download the file, unzip it and move the unzipped contents to the "wp-content/themes" folder of your WordPress installation. You will then be able to activate the theme.


Be careful to save your /inc/custom.php file before updating the theme. I removed the Theme Option page. You can now choose your layout and your own colors in 'Appearance' > 'Customize' in your back office. If you go in the WordPress Customizer, you will maybe see some PHP Errors. It's a bug with WordPress 3.9 and default header images. There is no impact in your website. The error will disapear in the next WordPress Update: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/27850


Split Me has no sidebar and the thumbnails are not displayed in a tag. That's why "Theme Check" will not find the_post_thumbnail() because it's not needed. Read below for the thumbnails.

If you set a thumbnail on your post, it will be displayed in the large box on the left. You need to choose a thumbnail size, minimum 800x800 pixels. If you do not set a thumbnail, the image that you have set in "custom-header" will be displayed.
