Blue Template - README


Blue is a fast and responsive theme for the Bludit CMS. The template is made out of plain PHP/HTML/CSS/JS. No jQuery, no Bootstrap, no other external framework, no heavy Google fonts or other bloat was used. Therefore the template is small and really fast to load. Well, it also depends on the number and size of the images used. There are three columns, the left one shows the last posts, the one in the middle the main content (page- or post content) and the right one shows an image gallery. There is a very small configuration file to specify some settings and a file with descriptions of the gallery images. The code is well documented with comments. To get a smaller HTML output, remove the comments on the live site. The template is responsive and should be look great on any device.
