Create A Simplo Site

Opera Theme

We are also using this site to demonstrate a new contrib theme that is currently in development. The Opera theme is designed help users build sites composed of stacked panels on the front page with background colors that bleed off either side. This site was built without any custom css or sub-theming. You can choose your own custom color scheme in the Opera config settings. 

This site does use some flexible layout templates and contrib modules with custom settings.

Simplo is still very much in the development and testing phase, but it's not too soon for you to spin up a Simplo site and give us your feedback. Those that help now with testing will get free hosting and email support for their sites for at least the next year.
