Proximo Clean Theme

Hi all!

Thought I would post this here, it’s a clean html5/css3 flex based responsive theme for Textpattern. Handy for blogging as the articles are output on the home page with read more links to click through. It’s a good starting point that you can easily customise. I have kept the css file out of the database, so you need to edit proximo.css in styles and then reference that file or minify to proximo.min.css.

Link on github for download use away and I hope you find it useful!

Re: Proximo Clean Theme

Thanks Hilary, very nice theme! My only grip is that article lists with excerpt/image-less articles look a bit ‘empty’, but then what can you do?

That’s true, I did make sure if there wasn’t an image it at least wouldn’t break the look or anything, but ideally each article does need an image to look right, especially with the alternating left/right display.

And thanks glad you like it overall!

Re: Proximo Clean Theme

Thanks Hilary. I have just download the zip file and will test it out after I return from from camping … right now busy preparing for getaway.

2 questions:

1) Is this a theme that gets installed into the Themes Folder or is it a stand alone Template to replace the default install? I will say that i am not a fan of using the Theme folder options. I have found that problematic. I prefer to use a template and replace the default install. just my own quirky way.

2) I see many instances of the use of “Hero” image. Why is it a Hero image?

Again thanks and looking forward to giving it a go.

One comment. Should Wave and Proximo be better showcased in our Showcase Website ??

Take your pick. If you download the zip file you can unpack it in your /themes directory wholesale, then import it into your Txp installation as a parallel theme from the Presentation>Themes panel. That way you can play with it in safety as a development theme using your existing content.

Otherwise you can manually copy and paste the individual assets from the /pages, /forms/ and /styles directories in ProximoClean and replace the content of your existing site pages. That’s destructive, of course, whereas using parallel themes and the dev/live workflow isn’t.

EDIT: There’s a third way if you’re starting a new site:

  1. Extract the contents of the ProximoClean zip into the /themes dir of your yet-to-be-installed Txp.
  2. Run setup as normal.
  3. In the final step, you’ll see a dropdown of all available themes. The default theme will be preselected (‘Four Point Eight’ at the time of writing) but you can change that and pick ProximoClean instead.
  4. Finish installation and that theme will be installed as your default theme for the site.

Re: Proximo Clean Theme

I actually installed it earlier on a site I haven’t touched in a few years and want to get going again: singleboxing.com

Everything installed fine – except that that there is no archive page included. At first, I just set the articles section to default but then I had a moment of inspiration and duplicated the default page and renamed it to archive.

I want to dig into the code more but it will be a few hours.

That’s great to see Michael, glad it all installed well. True I don’t use archive pages so I must consider putting that into a future release for people that do alright! Glad you got a workaround for now. :)
