Designed by Automattic’s Caroline Moore, Libre brings a stylish, classic look to your personal blog or longform writing site and is now available for download at WordPress.org. Libre’s main menu stays fixed to the top while visitors read your posts, and three footer widget areas let you tuck extra content away at the bottom of the page. Two custom page templates, including a full-width layout, add visual variety. Make Libre your own by adding a header image or — with Jetpack — a site logo. Libre sports a clean, responsive design that lets your site shine on screens of any size.
When Automattic’s Thomas Guillot was designing Publication, he aimed to incorporate two sidebars in an original way, while putting emphasis on large, full-screen featured images. Now available in the WordPress.org theme directory, Publication is well suited to magazines or blogs about fashion, food, travel, or design — or any topic where visuals are an important focus.
