StupidGenius is a white background two-columns theme which comes in five different flavours: default, white, violet, green, red.

To switch between colours, just comment/uncomment the corresponding lines in style.css.

Here are some features:

  • 5 different flavours in one theme
  • Lightweight (all graphics are just 32 KB)
  • Simple layout, 2 columns
  • Widget ready
  • No javascript, no flash, no tables
  • XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 2 Valid
  • Tested with Explorer 6 & 7, Firefox 3+, Safari 3+

By default, in single posts and single pages there’s no sidebar. Most users like this clean and less distracting design, which improves readability and lets the visitor concentrate on content.

On the other side, some users prefer the sidebar to be always visible. If you want your sidebar back, just delete single.php (for single posts) and/or page.php (for pages) from the theme’s folder.

The name “StupidGenius” was created by Maura Gancitano.
