Recommend Themes

Hueman

This is default theme your site is already set to use. This theme has a flexible Theme Options panel that let's you customize many components of the site including:

  • page layout
  • styling: background colors, font, etc.
  • header logo


Additional themes

If you feel compelled to use a different theme than Heuman, the following themes will work well on mobile devices (they are responsive) and make good usage of navigation (Menus) and widgets so you can design a site where viewers can easily find and interact with your content.

  • Baskerville (custom header image)
  • Editor
  • Hemingway (custom header image)
  • Ignite
  • Padhang
  • Tracks (works best with featured images saved to posts)
  • Twenty Twelve, Twenty Thirteen, Twenty Fourteen, Twenty Fifteen, Twenty Sixteen


Additional themes may not have Theme Options but can be modified by Appearance > Customize

Sidebars (Widgets)

Sidebar content in WordPress is controlled via "Widgets". Often times if you don't anything to your side bar a default set of "widgets" will appear. You can change this by adding your own widgets.
