Free WordPress Theme – AzSimple

Updated on: Apr 05 2019 by Anli

Free WordPress Theme - AzSimple

Finally it’s ready! Today I’m happy to announce my third free WordPress theme. It’s called AzSimple and it’s a plain and simple theme without many graphic effects, shadows or gradients, but yet beautiful. The theme comes with light colors, white, gray, blue and a clean dark footer. It also has an Options Page where you can set your logo, favicon, social network links, advertising, etc. So, let’s take a closer look to AzSimple’s features.



– WordPress 3.0 custom menu.

– Logo, advertising space (468 x 60) and social network links (Facebook, Twitter) that you can modify from the Options Page.

– Custom Favicon. You can insert the favicon url in the Options Page.


– Featured posts section with bxSlider (a jQuery content slider). You can choose the featured posts category and the number of posts you want to show in the Options Page.

– Posts shown in Excerpt View.

– Automatic generation of thumbnails (with TimThumb).


– Threaded comments and Gravatar support.


– Right widgetized sidebar.

– Advertising space that you can modify from the Options Page.


– About Us space. You can set it in the Options Page.

– Latest Tweets. You can set your Twitter ID and the number of tweets you want to show from the Options Page.

– Newsletter subscription form. You can set your Feedburner ID from the Options Page.


AzSimple is released under the GNU General Public License version 3.0. You can use this theme in personal and commercial projects. But please refer to this page if you want to publish it somewhere else. I will also appreciate it very much if you don’t remove my link in the footer.

For bxSlider and jQuery use their licenses. The images used for the AzSimple preview come from

    • Anli says:

      You mean the menu in the header? In this case you have to create a custom menu from the WordPress Admin Panel >> Appearance >> Menus.

  14. Tara says:

    Love the theme!

    I was wondering if there was a way to customise the footer content? For example, I would like to do away with latest tweets and subscription.

  27. tiff says:

    Hello, I would really love to use this theme but after testing it out, I have no idea how to insert images so that they will show up as a featured thumbnail on the entries, and on featured posts.

    I’m aware that for most blogs with featured images, there should be a link that says “set featured image” when you post a new entry but this particular theme does not have it.

    I would really appreciate it if you can help me with this 🙂

    Thank you!

  28. tiff says:

    Hi, sorry to bug again (haha),

    Just wanted to let you know that I figured out the featured image posts on the header. But still trying to figure out how to insert the image thumbnail that should come up on each entry preview.

    Thank you.

    • Anli says:

      Hi tiff,
      The current version of the theme sets the image thumbnails automatically.
      In the next few days I’m going to update the theme and create another version in which you’ll be able to set manually the post image that you want to show as thumbnail. I’ll send you an email as soon as the new version is ready.

  29. MrCyber says:

    Hey Anli!
    I really love this template and appreciate your work! And featured posts script is also really fantastic.
    But how can I display posts in this form not only from the one category that I specified in the settings, but, say, from the random category?
    Something with arrays or this is much simpler?

  42. Anli says:

    The “Cannot modify header information” problem is now fixed. Check out the updated version of the theme and let me know if there are other problems.

  43. Orly says:

    Hi Anli,

    First of all very beautiful theme!
    I have installed your theme on a 3.4.2 wordpress version and from some reason every time I try to update post or page, I get a blank white page after pressing the update button…

    It happens only with your theme, I have tried to reinstall it, and nothing helps.

    Any ideas?


    • Anli says:

      Have you tried installing the last version of the theme? I updated it yesterday. You can download it from the link above.

      • Orly says:


        Yes I just did, I am talking about the updated version. I was hoping that your fix will fix this issue as well 🙂

      • Anli says:

        Ok Orly, thanks for the feedback. I’ll try to find out what’s the problem and update the theme in the next few days.

  44. Roberto says:

    Hey Ani,

    First of all thanks, your theme is impressive and we are very happy to use it. We just have one problem, and its with the featured image in the “Featured Posts Category” that does not appears, can’t figure why. Its wierd, everything works fine, and the image shows perfectly next to each post, but it does not show properly in the slider. I would be very thanked if you can help me!

    • Anli says:

      This is a problem that another user was having too (with the YAMINTH theme). When you try to open the slider images in another tab of the browser, it gives some error messages.
      From a google search I made, it seems that this might be a hosting problem. So, contact your hosting provider first and show them the error messages. Let me know how it goes and if this is really a hosting problem.

  45. layla says:


    i have installed your theme on mij blog and i love it but the thumbnails does not work on the frontpage… hat is the problem?

    this is my blog….

  46. pankaj says:

    It’s amazing and beautiful themes…

  47. Nelson says:

    Hi. Many thanks for the theme. could I request that the featured posts scroll automatically rather than clicking on the number link to see the next post?

  48. Just found this theme while searching. I like it’s simplicity a lot but saw there may be bugs in a post above. Have these issues been resolved? If so I would like this theme on a site being planned right now.

  49. jud@audio says:

    I like this theme simple and clean. And i try this theme for my site.
