A flat-file CMS is a new kind of content management system that stores content in files and folders rather than in a database like a traditional CMS such as WordPress. Not using a database offers many advantages in the areas of speed, simplicity, security and version control. Many designers are starting to switch to flat-file CMSes…
I think we’ll see continued growth in flat file static website builders… there’s a growing realisation that sometimes a full CMS is simply overkill. Collis Ta’eed, Envato Founder, 2014 Predictions for Web Design
Statamic is a flat-file CMS that is quickly gaining in popularity among designers. Type & Grids is not affiliated with Statamic in any way — I just believe they make the absolute best flat-file CMS available. Statamic runs on any web server that runs PHP (most web servers).
Hi! I’m Jeremiah and I’m the guy behind Type & Grids. I’ve been selling website templates since 2008 — my first template site, Warm Forest, is still online. I still actively respond to every single support request, usually within one day, if not sooner. You can rest assured that I’m not some big theme shop that might shut down overnight.
I use Hawthorne for my portfolio site and Willamette for this site (including the blog). I’m constantly updating my sites and adding new features and those updates are added to the templates I sell. When you buy a template you are essentially getting a zipped up copy of my site, minus the content.
Basic HTML knowledge is helpful but not required. You shouldn’t need to write any code yourself — just edit and copy & paste the code that is already set up.
The footer link is required in the free versions. If you would like to remove the footer link, you can purchase one of the Pro Packages.
The only software you will need is a basic text editor and an image editing program (like Photoshop) to create any images you want to use.
Type & Grids uses Gumroad to handle the entire checkout process. Payment is made securely with a credit card and the files are delivered instantly after payment. I never have access to any of your credit card info and I offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on every purchase. If you’d prefer to pay with PayPal, email email@example.com.
No. The Pro versions include the plain HTML version as well as the Statamic theme version — you can use whichever version you prefer.
No. Type & Grids comes in two versions. The first is just plain HTML. The second is a Statamic theme. Statamic is a CMS with a control panel (like WordPress) but it runs without using a database, instead using just files and folders.
I recommend checking out DigitalOcean (referral link). They offer extremely low-cost solid-state drive hosting which perfectly complements flat-file sites.
That version is still available and still actively supported on classic.typeandgrids.com.
