Authentic is a light & minimal WordPress theme that will perfectly suit lifestyle bloggers & magazines. It has so many amazing features that will make your blog or magazine stand out among others. Let your visitors enjoy the clean contemporary design of your new website powered by Authentic.
Super Clean Design
Authentic is a minimal blog and magazine theme for WordPress focused on content and readability.
This theme will give the great browsing experience for your followers.
Don’t worry, highly customizable doesn’t mean you’ll have to spend long hours setting up your theme.
We stick to WordPress best practices: «Decision, not options» and that’s why Authentic has only the really necessary options.
Many Ways to Show your Content
There’re four post header variants, multiple archive types and numerous gallery types.
Each post and each category can be styled individually.
Authentic includes our custom Pinterest «Pin It» buttons on all images. It can be either galleries of any type or simple post images.
Great Social Engagement
Make your content go viral: Authentic has built-in sticky share buttons, custom Twitter, Facebook and Instagram widgets.
Additional Content Formatting Features
To make your content look beautiful we added additional formatting features: drop caps, lead-ins, paragraph containers.
It’s super easy to use them: nothing to code, just select the items from the default Wordpress visual editor.
Despite rich layout possibilities, Authentic is fully responsive and looks great on any device.
It’s not empty words. In fact we tested Authentic on seven various physical devices to make sure we deliver the best quality.
We not only sell themes, but provide the greatest after-sales support ever.
We try to respond as quickly as possible and provide the most efficient responses.
