The Tonal WordPress theme is a minimal theme by Automattic, that attempts to strip away everything but the content. Large header images, and bold typography combine to developer a content first approach, with the widgets and sidebar hidden in a navigation drawer. The coolest feature however is the adaptive background color that changes as you change the text color.
- Hiding the widget area with the navigation is a slick experience, and really cleans up the screen.
- Large header images and videos.
- Adaptive background colors to help keep your content readable at every color.
- Not as slick as some of the other minimal themes.
- Hidden widgets aren’t for everyone since they’re often used as call for actions.
