Theme Features

Myth is just packed full of wonderful features.

Let’s start with the big ones…

The Grid

Separate Grid Control over your homepage, Categories archives and Author archives.

Featured images are supposed to be about showcasing your blog post and pages. So we’ve packed Myth with a plethora of controls for your featured image.

Here are just a few examples…

Want a global style? No problem, you can set your defaults straight from the Theme Customizer and overwrite them per post and page.

Ambient Video on your posts

Want to utilise that featured image space for an ambient video? easy just choose the Video Post format and add your .webm and .mp4 ambient video files. Full height image options still work with ambient video so you can have a full size video too! and for browsers that don’t support ambient HTML5 background video (like mobile and tablet) you can show a static visual in its place.

Easily create awesome galleries

All the latest WordPress gallery features are enabled in this theme.

And if that is not enough for you, you can install AESOP or our brand new MeanBlocks plugin (included for free in this theme) to add advanced controls and lightboxes!

Here are a few gallery examples (without MeanBlocks improved features).

Ambient Video on your posts

Want to utilise that featured image space for an ambient video – easy just choose the Video Post format and add your .webm and .mp4 ambient video files. Full height image options still work with ambient video so you can have a full size video too! Here is an example.

Some of the finer details

With a click of the little eye icon you can see the featured image in all of its glory.

Standard Menu / Hidden Menu & Fixed Header

You can have a standard menu on the desktop size of Myth or you can use the hide/show toggle to give the blog more minimalism. Want a fixed header too, with a click on a checkbox, it’s done.

Typekit Support

Using the wonderful free Typekit plugin for WordPress you can add any Typekit fonts, just like we have on this demo. You do need a Typekit account to do this.

Google Fonts Support

Using the fantastic and free Google Fonts plugin for WordPress you can add any Google fonts. We’ve even integrated a bespoke options panel to get you up and running quickly.

Instagram Support

Using the insanely great WP Instagram plugin for WordPress you can add your instagram feed to the foot of your blog, just above the footer copyright bar. We even match the gutter you’ve chosen in your grid to make sure everything looks just right.

Dropcaps for your posts and pages

Everybody loves a dropcap, you can turn these on for pages and for posts from the Theme Customizer.

Did we mention, we love support?

We want to make sure you are happy with your purchase, if you have a question about how to do something or think you have found a bug, head over to our support system and we’ll get back in touch.
