Purista is a minimalist theme that keeps things as simple as possible. It focuses on simplicity, ease of use, and speed so that your content can take center stage, instead of some flashy and unnecessary design.
Below are a few built-in options and features that make Purista so clean and friendly:
Multiple Built-In Color Schemes
The Purista theme has ten gorgeous color schemes built right in, so you can pick your favorite or switch between them with one click of a button.

Optimized for Mobile
Purista is responsive to any screen size, so your content looks fantastic on any device. Try it out now by resizing your browser window or visiting puristatheme.com on your mobile device.
Every page or post has the option of a featured image (example). Capture your readers’ attention, or add some flair to any page with a beautiful featured image that is automatically scaled to fit the screen at any size.
A Consistent Call-to-Action On Every Page
Use the “Bottom CTA” widget to add a consistent call-to-action on every page (such as an email signup form). You can hide the call to action on any page.
Hide the Sidebar
If you want a page or post to appear full-width, just disable the sidebar on that page. It’s as simple as clicking a checkbox!
Keep the conversation civil with this optional disclaimer. You can customize it with whatever you text you’d like, all from the theme settings page.
Multi Column Text
Make your content stand out with built-in multi column support. Just go to any post or page, and select “Dual Column Text” in the “Post/Page Options” box.
To see an example of how it looks, check out this multi-column page example.
When you use multi-column layout, make sure you break up your content every few paragraphs with an <hr> or <h2>/<h3> tag so that it is readable. Aim for about what would fit on one screen at a time.
Automatic Drop Caps
Make your content look elegant and professional with a drop cap at the beginning of your post. Turn it off easily in the “Post/Page Options” panel that is always available.
For an example of how it looks, check out this drop cap example.
Clean and Polished
You’ll notice little things sprinkled here and there that make Purista a pleasure to use. From the styling of the horizontal rule to the ability to turn on and off the Admin Bar, its the little (and simple) things that make it simple and intuitive to use.
