Howdy! This theme, Forever, is now retired.

We invite you to have a look at Toujours, our modern update of Forever. Explore the Toujours demo site and showcase page, or check out the launch announcement.

Forever Setup Guide

If prefer to keep Forever active on an older site and are looking for the setup guide, instructions are below.

Post Slider

Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images. Every sticky post you have (up to 10) that has a Featured Image that’s at least 888 pixels wide will be displayed in the slider.

Featured Images

On the home page, posts with Featured Images assigned will display with the excerpt, whereas posts without Featured Images will display the full content. You can always shorten full-content posts using the More Tag.

Latest Posts Grid

To display your four latest posts in a neat grid on the blog page – with a Featured Image above each one, if you’ve included it when creating the post – visit your WP Admin dashboard at Appearance → Theme Options and click the checkbox there.

Forever will also display your latest Quote or Status post in the footer of your blog. You can read more about how to do that on our Post Formats page.

Your latest quote post in Forever

Save the date!

Forever also sports a custom design for the Milestone widget. Just pick a title for your event, a date and time, and a special message for the big day, and you’re ready to go. Now you have a special save the date widget for your Wedding on every page of your blog.


We also built in a special Guestbook Template that lets your guests take over a page of your choice with their best wishes for you … and maybe a few embarrassing stories 🙂 … as comments. Assign the Guestbook template to a static page to see it in action.

Quick Specs (all measurements in pixels):

  1. The main column width is 560 except in a full-width layout where it’s 890.
  2. The header image is 885 by 252.
  3. The sidebar width is 263.
