Writr

Home Page

Writr is a minimalist, content-oriented tumblelog theme perfect for your personal blog.


Optimal layout on different media devices

Writr is responsive — from desktop to mobile, and everything in between. The design will adapt to any screen without sacrificing usability or design integrity.

Responsive Design


Post Formats

Writr supports all post formats. Each post format has a unique icon.


Custom Header and Gravatar

By default, Writr will display the site owner’s Gravatar in the header.

If you want to display something other than your Gravatar, you can upload a Custom Header Image in Customize → Header Image, or you can remove it completely by selecting Hide Image.


Custom Background

With Writr, you can easily apply a background color or image by going to Customize → Colors & Backgrounds. If you want your background image to cover the whole page and stay fixed, go to Customize → Theme Options and check the “Full Page Background Image” box.

Connect

Writr allows you to add links to your Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Tumblr accounts in the theme’s footer. First, connect these services to Publicize, by going to My Sites → Sharing. Once connected, navigate to the Customizer, where you’ll find a new Connect panel. Select the account(s) you want to link to, and their respective icons will be displayed:

Custom Menu

Writr has a primary custom menu area that can be set up by going to Customize → Menus. It will display three levels of menu items.


Multiple color schemes

Writr comes packed with 6 different color schemes: Turquoise (default), Blue, Green, Grey, Purple, and Red. Navigate to the Customize → Colors & Backgrounds and click on one of the 6 featured color palettes:

If you want to choose your own colors, Writr will work seamlessly with Custom Colors, which is part of the Custom Design upgrade.


Wider content area

Are you finding Writr‘s content area too narrow? Go to the Customizer and tick the “Wider Content Area” checkbox.
