Carbon – Our latest theme A Blogging theme with versatile layout

February 12, 2016

After a period of silent working, we are proud to announce you our latest WordPress theme, Carbon. It is a lightweight Blogging theme which offers just the right amount of customization options and it is highly flexible at the same time. You can find more details about it and check out the demo here.

We have built 2 demos, each one with different configuration. Feel free to explore them both.

Carbon Demo 1 →

  • Menu: Stripped
  • Sidebar: hidden on posts and pages
  • Posts Layout: 2-1-2-1
  • Posts Grid Titles Visibility: visible on hover
  • It has a header image enabled at the homepage.

Carbon Demo 2 →

  • Menu: as a custom menu sidebar widget
  • Sidebar: visible everywhere
  • Posts Layout: 2-2-2-2
  • Posts Grid Titles Visibility: hidden on hover
  • It does not have a header image enabled at the homepage.


Just the right amount of options:

  • Choose between 4 layouts for your homepage, category pages etc.
  • Enable or disable sidebar
  • Easy font switching through Google fonts
  • 3 ways to show your menu: Over a stripped white background at the top, as an overlay on the image, or as a custom menu widget at your sidebar.
  • Handy color selectors for normal / hover elements
  • The built in WordPress Header image feature is being utilized and allows to output an intro section at your homepage.
  • Custom 404 page
  • Show or hide Post titles from the covers by default (in post grids).

Excited to see that Carbon was mentioned at the Best WordPress themes for 2016 post, at And we are also glad to see that this mention comes from a website that values simplicity and ease of use.

  1. Hey John,

    I really liked how you offered your clients to choose between 4 layouts for their homepage.

    Keep up with great work!

  2. Thanks! It looks like it is a “safe” customization option, providing pre-defined layouts instead of messing with over-coding your theme. Thanks for the comment!

  3. Hi there,

    This functionality is 100% WordPress based, and works the same with any theme. What you need to do is to add a category link to your menu, and then all the posts in this category will appear in the page. More info on how to setup the menu is included at the documentation:

    Let me know if this worked!
