Split Me

Version 2.5

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 extra options because it does not seem necessary. The only options are those available in the WordPress Customizer:

  • Custom layout (left or top header)
  • Custom header (the badass left picture)
  • Custom background (colors and images)
  • Custom colors (post titles, icons, menu, site title, etc...)

Also, the theme 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.

To add a social media navigation in the footer, use the classic WordPress menus in Appearance > Menus. Simple add custom links with your social media profiles url. The theme css will detect the social media url and will add the icon and the hover color. Actually, only these social media links are supported:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Google Plus
  • LinkedIn
  • Dribbble
  • Pinterest
  • Instagram
  • Github
