Theme: Charity v1.0

By Dan Wolfgang
Posted March 21, 2011, in Theme: Business site.


The Charity theme allows for rapid deployment of a charity-focused site, with some of the common features found on such a site — though to be honest, it includes features anybody may like! This theme is based on Classic Blog, Minimalist but includes a number of additional features:

  • Image galleries for both Pages and Entries
  • Include an accent image in the site header
  • Support for a navigation menu with links to Pages
  • Easily configurable Facebook Like button
  • Easily configurable Footer text

As well as the familiar features of Classic Blog Minimalist:

  • Many 2- and 3-column page layouts
  • 10 theme colors
  • Easily manageable sidebars through Widgets and Widget Sets

See the Charity theme in action at, the web site for the annual Dillon Wilson Comedy for the Cure event.



This plugin is installed just like any other Movable Type Plugin.

Next, use one of the included themes on a blog. There are three ways to do so:

  • Create a new blog, and choose one of the theme template sets.
  • Go to Design > Templates and choose to Refresh Blog Templates, and choose one of the theme template sets.
  • Go to Design > Theme Dashboard and select “Apply a new Theme,” where you can select one of the themes.


Movable Type versions: 4.3
