Time to give back a bit! Do you want to write about something you love and show it in a magazine-type of way? Here is a theme for you. Inspired by the beautiful Listverse.
The way sidebars are treated for phones and tablets is pretty unique. Resize your browser window’s width on the live demo to see how it works, or use CTRL+scrollwheel to zoom in and see high resolution in action!
If you want to design WordPress themes, but don’t have good enough php knowledge or foundation to build on, you are free to use this theme as base. It’s GPLv3-licensed. The theme documentation template and text is also completely free to re-use/edit for your themes if you wish (WTFPL).

You can support my work here – any amount is always appreciated.
Note: The version of Hueman available on wordpress.org is a “lite” version, and does not include sharing buttons, tracking code field, basic shortcodes and some other things as it is seen as “plugin territory”.
Now, let’s see some of the features included…
100% High resolution
Awesome sharpness on retina screens and other high resolution devices. No compromise anywhere.
Extensive styling options
Unlimited primary and secondary accent colors. Change topbar, header, footer and body background in seconds.
This theme will scale down beautifully from a full hd resolution down to a low resolution mobile phone.
Flexible layout options
Set 0-2 sidebars to the left, right or one on each side. Every page, post and also standard WP sections can be unique.
Toggle fixed-width sidebars
The primary sidebar is always kept at a neat 300px. The secondary is 220px. Both are always rendered after the content in the code, no matter layout.
0-4 Footer widget columns
Use anything from no footer widgets all the way up to 4 columns. A personal favourite is 3 columns for good space on all devices.
Almost zero images
With Font Awesome, CSS and a modern flat look this theme manages to load only 1-3 images total for the whole layout, depending on layout choice.
Integrated share counts
Sharrre is inlcuded which gives you high-res share buttons and counts for each article. Not a fan of social media? Just disable them.
Set the website max-width
You choose how wide you want your website to be via the admin panel. With a neat numeric slider, it’s one click away. 1024px > 1600px.
Related posts & post nav
Motivate your readers to explore more articles on your website with related posts and links to previous and next article.
Unlimited widget areas
There is no limit to how many widget sidebars you can create. Each widget area can be assigned to a unique page, post or standard WP sections.
Featured story or slider
Show your most recent post in large size on the frontpage, or select a featured category to pick stories from. 0-10 featured articles can be shown.
Easily show video, audio, image, gallery slider, status messages, links and more. All 10 formats supported.
Easily add your own social links to your header and footer. Use any of 370 icons. Set a unique color for each if you want.
Choose from a list of some good-looking fonts supplied via Google Fonts. Latin Extended and Cyrillic options included.
Want a boxed layout style instead of full-width? It’s one click away in the styling options.
