Cubic: Homepage

Meet Cubic, a single-column, grid-based theme with large featured images, perfect for photoblogging.


Cubic allows you to have two Custom Menus: one in the theme’s slide-out sidebar (Primary Menu) and one in the footer (Social Menu). To set up your menus, go to your Customizer → Menus.

Primary Menu


If you’d like to add descriptions underneath your menu items, visit the Menus option in your Customizer and click the gear icon.


Under “Show advanced menu properties,” select “Description” to start editing menu descriptions. Now, when editing or adding any menu item, you’ll see a field allowing you to add a description.
