Creating with Basic Maths

This is an example of a WordPress page in Basic Maths. You can create as many pages like this one or sub-pages as you like and manage all of your content inside of WordPress. Basic Maths comes with ready-made classes for you to display your content in different ways. You can add new columns, left or right, and return to a full width paragraph. You need some dedication to get it done properly, so we are documenting it right here to help you.

Columns

You can arrange your content into multiple columns (see our example about page for further instructions) by using div tags and adding some simple classes to them.

The classes you can use are leftcolumn rightcolumn topcolumn. Beware to do it properly, by opening and closing the tags correctly, so as to avoid any Layout Issues.

Using Images in Basic Maths

Basic Math’s minimalist design is intended to let your images sing, and the comprehensive layout grid that underlies its structure makes it easy to place those images seamlessly into each post. This article gives you an overview of what’s possible and what’s recommended, and it also details the CSS classes that can be applied to get your images placed just where you want them. Before diving in, remember this handy trick: just type control+shift+G on any page when using Basic Maths to reveal the grid layer for easy reference.

We Really Like This Cherry Tree

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Simple gallery test

There are ten images attached to this post.  Here’s a gallery:

It’s the simplest form of the gallery tag.  All images are from the public domain site burningwell.org.

The images have various combinations of titles, captions and descriptions.

This should then split into another page with images and other things…

Block quotes

Some block quote tests:

Here’s a one line quote.

This part isn’t quoted. Here’s a much longer quote:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. In dapibus. In pretium pede. Donec molestie facilisis ante. Ut a turpis ut ipsum pellentesque tincidunt. Morbi blandit sapien in mauris. Nulla lectus lorem, varius aliquet, auctor vitae, bibendum et, nisl. Fusce pulvinar, risus non euismod varius, ante tortor facilisis lorem, non condimentum diam nisl vel lectus. Nullam vulputate, urna rutrum vulputate molestie, sapien dolor adipiscing nisi, eu malesuada ipsum lectus quis est. Nulla facilisi. Mauris a diam in eros pretium elementum. Vivamus lacinia nisl non orci. Duis ut dolor. Sed sollicitudin cursus libero.

Proin et lorem. Quisque odio. Ut gravida, pede sed convallis facilisis, magna dolor egestas dolor, non pulvinar metus magna in velit. Morbi vitae sem sit amet arcu vehicula gravida.

And some trailing text.
