Simple Nineteen is the theme used by Sandia Mesa Animation Studios to power many of its websites. Forked from the WordPress Twenty Seventeen theme, Simple Nineteen has a focus on business sites with its features including widgets and navigation menus, a logo, social media share buttons for various platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Mastodon, and Pleroma, and more. You can personalize its asymmetrical grid using a custom color scheme and showcase your multimedia content with post formats. Additionally, you can change the header's background color and remove the grey gradient included in the theme. Options for full width and full screen pages are also included without the need for an additional plugin. This theme works great in many languages, for any abilities, and on any device.
