Nerea is really responsive, from the smartphone to the desktop. All your content, including images, videos and text, will adapt to any device and look great. Check out the live preview!

Fixed or scrolling navigation

By default, Nerea sidebar is fixed on your screen, so you can keep the menu handy. Nerea shows as many widgets as will fit on the screen, and hides all others. But what if you want to show your 25 favorite widgets? On the theme customizer panel you can find a checkbox to make the sidebar scrolls with the screen, like a classic website. Room for everyone!

Highly customizable

With Nerea you can configure everything you need to make it your own theme without typing a single code line. Customize Nerea in real time with Word Press Theme Customizer. Change your sidebar and accent colors, your site title, upload a logo… and take a look on the results with live preview. Choose a responsive or a regular layout, a fixed or a scrolling navigation, select where to use social buttons... Forget about confusing options panels!

Some more info ›

Retina Display quality

Clear and sharp experience on any device. Any. You can even upload your logo in high resolution.

Featured multimedia

Enrich visually any page of your site with a full-width featured image, a slideshow, a Google map or video from Vimeo, YouTube or any other services. You can even feature a song or playlist from SoundCloud or similar services, and make it the center of your article!

Lightbox images and galleries

Pick as many images as you want from the WordPress Media Manager, order them by drag & drop and… Ta-da!

Folding comments

By default the comment block bellow any post or page will be always visible. But maybe you want comments and comment form to be hidden until the user click on “Comments”. Done.


Nerea is localized, and includes ’.mo’ and ’.po’ files, so you can translate it easily to any language. English, German and Spanish are included. Besides, WPML plugin is welcome!

Ad server ready

Nerea comes with a custom widget specially developed to be used with your Ad Server. Just paste your embed code and your ads will be displayed on any screen, any device.

Really visual content editor

Tired of typing meaningless shortcodes and having to preview the page every few minutes?
With Nerea we tried to observe the highest WordPress and W3C guidelines when creating content, using standard styles and HTML tags and minimizing the use of shortcodes. This does not mean that you do not own an extensive catalog of awesome elements ready to use in your content; only that we have made them very easy to use. Forget complicated codes with dozens of parameters. Simply press the corresponding button or select a style from a menu and there you have it. In the edit box you will see your content just as get displayed on the page once you post it. Presto!

Font Awesome included

Nerea includes the Font Awesome® Icon Set, the iconic font designed for Bootstrap®. Over 370 vectorial icons, that come in several sizes. Font Awesome icons are vectors, which mean they’re gorgeous on high-resolution displays, perfect on Retina Displays®. Besides, Font Awesome won’t trip up screen readers, unlike other icon fonts. Use them wherever you want, even in buttons!

Testimonial from our users

«Thank you so much. If I had this level of service with every vendor, I would be incredibly happy. Thanks for going over the top and answering questions that have nothing to do with your theme».
Doug Burrier
«We wanted a theme that not only takes advantage of a wide variety of screen sizes, but has great visual impact all while still putting an emphasis on content. Nerea does just that and does it with a stylish and eye-catching design. It gives our writers the ability to express themselves creatively in a way that other themes simply cannot match».
Amy Frame – Open Thread Media
«Thanks for going above and beyond. I’ll reply on the public thread so people understand how helpful you are in your support of Nerea – fantastic».
Keving Jeong
«You are a real master. At some point I felt guilty to ask for your assistance, but you showed enduring patience and kept striving for perfection. My respect for your solution and help ».
Helène Mulder
«I am in love with this Theme. I encourage anyone sitting on the fence, thinking about buying it, to jump in. This Theme should be selling more licenses than it is!»
Dean Ramsden
«Keeval, this started out being a fabulous theme, and has gotten better with all the continued improvements. Keep up the good work.»
«OMG you are a GEM! Thank you so much. It is such a beautiful theme and i’m excited to really dive in and explore it’s full capabilities. Kudos for it’s amazing responsiveness in varying sizes.»
«For people who have doubt on purchasing this theme:
- The design and typography is SUPERB! They make our post easier to read, and our media (photos, pictures, videos) easier to consume for our visitors.
- The visual content editor is GREAT. It makes our job easier. No need to imagine how our post/page will looks like. No need to go back and forth between preview-edit.
- The integrated Social Sharing button is good. We don’t need special plugin just to handle Social Sharing anymore. One less plugin to deal with.
- The price is a real bargain. I have spent 2 weeks browsing the entire, searching for a theme that suit my blog. Most of the good themes will cost us 50+ USD. This one comes with ONLY 35 USD. Best value for money!
- This theme is super-easy. You don’t even need to read the documentation. But just in case you ever need it, it is well written too.
- The author is responsive. He replied to me on Sunday!»
«Nerea is a very elegant and easy theme. One of the best we’ve found in Themeforest. It works perfectly and is particularly suitable for specialized magazines.»
