Welcome to Clarity

Clarity is a simple, minimalist WordPress theme designed specifically for writers. To make writing the core focus of the theme we’ve stripped out a number of otherwise distracting WordPress features and used clean and clear styling to display beautiful, easy to read text.

What’s been stripped out?

  • Images have been limited to one featured image per post.
  • Widgets are gone, there’s no need for them in this theme.
  • “Pages” have been removed; Posts are the only weapon you need.
  • Menus have been vaporised, all posts are simple available to readers through the home page.
  • Shortcodes are not required and have therefore been dropped.
  • Unnecessary WordPress admin areas have been removed to keep writing posts nice and simple.

If you are looking for a fully featured theme for a business site that has all of the above included do check out some the other amplifiii themes on creative market as these may be more your cup of tea. If however you want a clean and clear site that displays your posts simply and clearly and is a joy to read please read on…..

Things Clarity does have:

Getting Started

Getting Clarity up and running is super easy, to install the theme just follow the 3 steps below:

  1. First log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  2. Go to Appearance -> Themes -> Install Themes -> Upload –> Selected the downloaded file (contained within the download.)
  3. Once the theme has been installed click “activate.”

It’s as simple as that, now you jest need to get writing!

How Clarity Works

The Clarity home page is made up of a simple list of post excerpts. Readers can access the posts through either clicking the post title or the “Read More” link at the bottom of the page.

Posts are displayed in chronological order with the most recent appearing at the top of the page.

To start filling your site with content simply start writing Posts in the usual fashion:

  1. Log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  2. Go to Posts -> Add New

WordPress will automatically create a Post Excerpt based on the content of your post however, should you wish to write your own a brief summary can be included in the “Excerpt” box when creating/editing a Post.

Demo Content

To help familiarise yourself with Clarity we have included a handy XML file that contains all the content from this demo site. The XML file can be found in your theme download in the folder entitled “XML_Demo_Content.”

To upload the content:

  1. Log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  2. Go to Tools -> Import -> WordPress
  3. Select “Install Now” form the plugin popup window that follows.
  4. Once the plugin is installed choose “Activate And Run The Importer.”
  5. Once the WordPress importer appears select the XML file from your Theme download folder
  6. Click “Upload file and import.”
  7. Select or create a new author (admin will do for now.)
  8. Check “Download and Import attached documents” and click install.
  9. The demo site content will now be loaded.

Example Post Content

Clarity has been designed to make your content shine, including headers, number lists and code excerpts, below is an example of some of Clarity’s display styles:

Probatus accusata ne vim, sit ridens urbanitas efficiendi te, cu soleat partiendo eam. Ei vim habeo dicta ridens, intellegam interesset ei per, in alia natum exerci vel. Mel id soluta forensibus concludaturque. Qui eu vero integre elaboraret, no mutat inermis has. In atqui omnium eum, te vis esse wisi possim, ad everti persecuti ius.

Verear fabulas eos id. Vis an velit dicunt fastidii, autem recteque ad his, an delicata adolescens temporibus nec. Nec ut nisl corrumpit ullamcorper, an nam doctus atomorum signiferumque.

  • Sit invidunt postulant complectitur ea, cu probo congue interpretaris eam.
  • Tantas labitur comprehensam in duo. Paulo veritus corpora ad cum, illud oportere ei mel. Eu falli molestie nec, movet facete an eam.
  • Ea nec affert delectus deseruisse, sea no propriae tacimates.
  • An choro conclusionemque nec, nemore similique eu has.

Et pro eius mazim suscipiantur, cum te veniam civibus recteque, vis alii vidit mnesarchum ea. Cum et alterum nusquam torquatos, atqui fabulas pertinax ut vim, epicurei invenire in sit. Eu vis causae sententiae.

Ea debet altera prompta his. Usu quot consequat an, falli quidam appareat vix ex.

Utinam omittam incorrupte cu est, ad nec agam facilis oporteat, lorem homero ei sit. Eu pri mucius invenire delicata, eam ad noster sapientem, in minimum quaestio eum. Te duo persius vivendum partiendo, unum vero oporteat no duo, omittam tractatos quo no. Ut dicat doctus euripidis his, cum te sonet primis. His minim adipiscing ut, an his equidem officiis.

Affert aliquip quaestio per ea, ea enim omnis detracto qui, ex mea nostro adipisci. Ei quando pertinacia moderatius mei. Ad sonet urbanitas prodesset vis. Ut sit vide eligendi, ne mea unum conceptam contentiones, vis ea euismod postulant. Alia ludus mel an, posse vivendum ei sea. Mei stet dictas eu. At timeam ceteros ius, nec dicta eripuit nominavi ne.

Appetere postulant ea eos, ex omnes ridens usu, sed at exerci meliore vituperatoribus. Tamquam offendit id sed, quo commune recteque ut. Doctus offendit molestiae ne eam, ex dolore definitiones ius, vim probatus convenire an. Semper splendide vel no, ad duo detraxit periculis, ne percipit pertinax sed. Qui nonumy audire eu.
