Many WordPress themes built today includes a flashy design and a multitude of useful and sometimes advanced settings. Still, for some people, simplicity and minimal functionality of a website without all the complexity is more than enough.

For most content oriented blogs, a minimalistic approach with a modern, clean design and a large amount of white space is usually preferred. Pureview from MyThemeShop is a good fit for this category. It is a lightweight and flexible type of WordPress theme, which is perfect for your next blogging project. It might be misleading to think that this theme lacks the features you need long term, but Purview is packed with a variety of features behind its simple surface. It includes a well-built homepage, a custom options panel to edit your website, shortcode support and html5/CSS3 ready. It also supports mobile web browsing by incorporating a responsive design option and allows multi lingual versions of the website.

Let us take a step further by exploring the homepage, see the live demo of the theme here. Pureview uses a right sidebar layout by default to show its content. You have the option to show the latest posts of your blog:


The sidebar supports custom widgets for your recent posts, website search and social media integration. You can also have an ad widget for monetizing your site.

Inner pages carry over the simplicity imposed by this theme.


The options panel has a custom dashboard for managing your website’s content, ads, navigation and styling.


Here we take a peek at the styling options. It looks similar to the default theme customizer of WordPress:


You can control how the theme handles your content in the single post settings.


This theme is highly recommended for bloggers/designers looking to have a simple and minimal layout for their website. You can have the features you wanted without too much clutter in the theme’s look. You can learn more about this theme here.
