Welcome to the FREE DnnMinimalist to the Dnn ecosystem

To add to the 2 other free themes for the Dnn CMS (DnnBootster and DnnMDesign), welcome to the FREE, Open Source DnnMinimalist Theme.

The DnnMinimalist theme is a bit different from the last 2 themes, there is no menu bar on the desktop version. Instead there is a menu button on the top right that is always visible on any device that you click and a vertical side menu appears on the right side.

The notifications, messages, login, languages and profile have also been re-styled to make the theme different from the rest.

The theme is called the ‘Minimalist’ for a reason, because it’s simple in style and easy for you visitors to navigate your Dnn site. The theme makes your content easily readable and clear.

DnnMinimalist is based on Bootstrap v.3.3.7 so that you can use all the goodness that comes with Bootstrap, the grid, components and javascript components that you know.

It also includes Font Awesome as do the other 2 themes and also Material Icons that the theme uses for the top bar icons.

The DnnMinimalist theme install is found here on the Dnn Store which you can download for free.

You can find the source of DnnMinimalist here on Github so if you feel like helping out with the theme you can do so easily.

Please feel free to try it out on your Dnn site, play about with it and let me know what you all think.

I love your designs. They allow design-challenged people like me to make a website that looks awesome. Thank you for sharing these with the community! If you are looking for another theme to design, you might want to make a dashboard theme like ANY of the ones at https://colorlib.com/wp/free-bootstrap-admin-dashboard-templates/. I have not found a single theme (free or paid) that has a collapsible side panel and a vertical menu that can get me that look. I am not even looking for all the bells and whistles of chart components, data entry forms, etc. because I have that with core and third-party modules. Just looking for a well-designed basic structure that just works. Maybe you could even add a dashboard layout to one of your existing themes. Thanks again for all your work!
