This theme, Libre, is retired. You may be interested in upgrading to Libre 2. Below is the support documentation for Libre.


Libre brings a stylish, classic look to your personal blog or longform writing site. The main navigation bar stays fixed to the top of the screen while your visitors read, keeping your most important content at hand, while three footer widget areas give your secondary content a comfortable home. Customize Libre with a logo or a header image to make it your own.

Page Templates

Libre has two Page Templates for displaying your content in an alternate format. The wider Full Width, No Sidebar template gives your content plenty of space to spread out, whereas the Right Content, No Sidebar template mimics the look of the blog posts, with the page title on the left and the content on the right.

Formatting Text

Libre includes special text styles for introductory text and pull quotes. See examples and instructions for these on the demo site.

Responsive design

Libre also supports the following features:
