Best Minimalist Theme
By ,

I've searched far and wide for a theme that I could use to learn WordPress and this was it. The code is very clean and the author did a really nice job in explaining within the code what does what. So if you're someone who wants to explore a theme with clean coding, this is it! Best best best!

Superb minimalist theme, excellent mobile display
By , for WP 4.0

I experiment with many themes but none of them can beat isola for a text heavy site. I found only a single theme with nicer font but with none of the capability that isola has.

- Minimalist, I want users to focus on my content instead of getting distracted
- Excellent mobile display, mobile usage is growing, mobile support is mandatory
- Impressive demo website (http://isolademo.wordpress.com/) gave me several new ideas to try out
- Powerful side menu, didn't know so much can be done with it until I visit the demo site. Hide all the complexity of the site away until the user need them.
- Header that show at the top constantly, very useful

Minor problems that I encountered trying to get the site just right.
- Header is useful, but the space in it seems to be very restricted with the search alone taking up 1/2 the space even though it is not that large. End up moving the search into the sidebar so that my site's title can show in a single line. The limited space hurt mobile display too.
- Tagline not showing despite the fact that it is in the code. I want my tag line to show in a small font below the title but the css is... odd. The tag line is hidden in I way I couldn't understand and modifying .site-description doesn't work. Switching to another class make the header too large. Must be missing something.

Simple and good

Thank you for this great theme! It stays in the background and gives content all the space, but when you need function, it is there.

Clear and beautiful
