Christopher is a clean and responsive theme for creative bloggers and authors — you can create an awesome magazine or personal blog in a few simple steps. Christopher comes with a custom front page, a featured posts carousel, and custom widgets that emphasise your writing and media with style. Christopher is well suited for a wide range of topics, including photography, fashion, food, travel, hobbies, crafts, tech, DIY, and more.
Build Your Own Front Page
Like a magazine or news site, Christopher offers a variety of layout options for composing post sections on a custom Front Page. You’ll find a widget area where you will be able to drag and drop Christopher’s custom Recent Posts by Category widget to build your own front page.
Choose the number of columns, the category, and the number of posts, and also opt to give a title and a description for each section.
Featured Content Slider
Christopher includes support for Featured Content, allowing you to showcase the most important work, photos, or blog posts on your site. To do this, set a tag under Appearance → Customizer → Featured Content, and all posts with this tag will be automatically included in the slider. Use this area to make sure your visitors notice your best articles!
Social Media Menu
Christopher allows you to display links to your social media profiles, like Twitter and Facebook, with icons using a Social Links menu. You can create a new Social menu under Appearance → Menus by adding links to each of your social services using the Links panel. After assigning the new Social menu as the “Social Links Menu,” the icons will show up automatically in the footer.
Three-column Footer Widget Area
Christopher also comes with an optional footer widget area that displays up to three columns, where you can add text or widgets, like tags, categories, or archives.
Typography Made for Reading
Christopher‘s default font is Noto Serif, a clean and elegant serif font. This helps to create a more natural reading rhythm; everything from titles to paragraph text has been optimized for a comfortable reading experience.
Ready for Mobile Devices
Christopher features a responsive design that adapts smoothly to different screen sizes. Your content will look beautiful on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and large desktop screens.
Brand identity is very important — that’s why Christopher supports a Site Logo. To add your logo, navigate to Customize → Site Identity to upload an image. Your logo will appear in the header of your homepage, above the title.
Customize with Ease
You’ll find all Christopher customization options in the Customizer. Christopher also supports Custom Backgrounds, and you can replace the site title with your own header image or other graphic by uploading an image through the Custom Header.
