    Some of the listed themes are not free. I.e, ones on Devpress :(

  4. I was thinking about 15 sites with a minimalist web design, but I get 15 collections instead!

    Oh well, that’s more bang for the bucks ;-)

Perishable Press is operated by Jeff Starr, a professional web developer and book author with two decades of experience. Here you will find posts about web development, WordPress, security, and more »
The Tao of WordPress: Master the art of WordPress.
Thoughts
Dashlane recently redesigned, stating proudly that they "removed all filigree". They should have kept it, as the app now looks generic and boring.
Working on integration for setaPDF + EDD on the new books subdomain. Good times.
Toggle visibility of hidden files on Mac: Cmd + Shift + .
Great tool for checking browser caching for web pages and all included files.
The new minimalist design styled by 14KB of CSS (uncompressed and un-minified). That covers 850+ posts and pages spanning 15 years of diverse content.
Amazing (and sad) to think that, in the year 2020, Internet Explorer still doesn't support the placeholder attribute, which is supported by all other major browsers.
Finishing up with the latest redesign for Perishable Press! Should be live this week or early next.
