Welcome to Viceroy, a one-column WordPress theme with a dash of pink. Viceroy is built on top of Blueprint CSS, my favorite grid-based CSS framework.

  • One-column – a simple linear design with a dash of regal pink. Minimal and manly.
  • Blueprint CSS – the best CSS grid framework out there. Perfect for customizing posts and pages.
  • No Images – pure CSS, clean typography, and a dash of pink were combined to create a captivating style.
  • “Do Less” – intentionally less features and less options than other themes. No images. No Gravitars. No tag line. No comments on pages. No sidebars. No widgets. No IE 6.
  • Gallery template – easily customizable page template to display a gallery of posts. Supports 2, 3, or 4 columns. Optionally specify a tag (or list of tags) to restrict the set of posts.

index.php – the home page. In the header, we have title plus the main nav. In the footer, we have search plus the “sidebar” including recent posts, monthly archives, and the tag cloud.


single.php – a single post showing a comment and the comment form.
