Higo - A Responsive WordPress Blog Theme

Higo - A Responsive WordPress Blog Theme

Higo WordPress Blog Theme

Higo WordPress Blog Theme features fine design and well-thought-out out layout. It’s an excellent fit for any kind of blog.

Centered logo in the header with navigation and search buttons on the sides. Main navigation lies underneath and gracefully sticks to the top while you scroll making links instantly available.

Elegant off-canvas menu with navigation and social links together with a custom text makes perfect sense both on small and large screens. Search is always one click away, which is an essential rule for almost any type of site.

Header carousel/slider section with flexible of options in the Theme Customizer.

Default posts pagination can be replaced with a neat AJAX “Load More” button, that, let’s be honest, hardly can be ignored.

Popular posts section in the footer, that shows most commented posts. On a single post page, it shows related posts instead.


  • This theme is only compatible with WordPress.org and will not work with WordPress.com
  • All images, included in the demo of the theme are copyrighted by their authors. None of them will be included with the purchase.
  • The logo in the demo is a custom image, created specifically for the demo, and is also not included with the theme.
