This WordPress Theme powers TRU Writer; a site that allows people to publish their writing, including rich media content, without needing to login or understand the backend of WordPress.


“Once installed the TRU Writer theme allows individuals to generate content online using an rich text editor interface. Writers can also add content by cutting and then pasting into the editor from word-processing software such as MS Word or Google Docs, carrying forward most structural formatting (here’s an example of a post created by using the copy/paste function (cmd/ctrl + V) from a Word document.

Because it requires no login or CMS knowledge, TRU writer is great for projects where multiple people are contributing or for classroom applications where many individuals need to publish content on the same site. It focuses on the writing rather than WordPress (not that we do not love you, WordPress!)

The site invisibly logs in visitors to a special account to make available advanced publication and editing tools, but those individuals will not need to navigate the WordPress dashboard or login structure (we love dashboards, but hey, not everyone needs to see that mess, right?). The TRU Writer allows individuals to publish anonymously, or under an assumed name, or their own name, or whatever.

The TRU Writer Theme was developed along with the TRU Collector, the TRU Sounder, The Comparator, and the Daily Blank while on a fellowship at Thompson Rivers University–that’s why the “TRU” in the theme name.”
