Send Message
Thanks for creating this theme. It's a "must have" for each C5 developer.


Do you have a requirement for specialised functionality built on Concrete CMS?
I work at an hourly rate or can offer a fixed price against a well defined requirement.

A Theme with no CSS or styles

Themeless is a blank page theme with absolutely no css or styling. It is useful for embedding pages in iframes and also convenient for testing blocks in an unpolluted environment. See Some uses of Themeless.

Basic Use

Do Not apply Themeless site-wide. Themeless is intended for selective application to specific pages.

Do Not apply Themeless to a page that already has layouts. Before concrete5 v8, a core issue will cause a php error if a page with layouts is changed to a theme that does not support layouts, From core v8+ you do not need to worry.

Themeless provides a single default page template and an equivalent view.php for use with single pages. These contain auto-collapsing area names compatible with Elemental.

  • Page Header
  • Main
  • Sidebar
  • Page Footer

Themeless does not provide any global areas because it is not intended for global use!


A dashboard page at Pages&Themes > Themes > Themeless provides an option to disable the core menu bar, dashboard panel and other core attachments to the page. See Disabling the concrete5 edit bar and panels.
