Lonestar WordPress Theme (Style for simpleX)

My site, BitFreedom, uses the simpleX theme.  This theme is nice and simple, and best of all designed to be customizable.  It really saved me the trouble of creating the “Lonestar Theme” from scratch.  I also started using it for other sites, and it quickly became obvious that with a few simple modifications I could easily just drop a CSS file into the directory and have simpleX automatically pick it up.

Some time ago (July 2010) I emailed the author with my changes so he could put them into the next version of the theme.  However since the next version seems to be a long time coming, I’ve decided to post my changes here.

So here it is, my simpleX patch (along with the Lonestar style):

Example of the Lonestar Theme


  1. Copy the functions.php file over to the simplex theme directory (overwrite).functions.php.orig is a copy of the original (version 1.3.3)
    functions.php.patch is a diff between the two
  2. Copy the contents of the css/ directory over to the simplex/css/

This directory contains an example of a custom theme.
