Maisha is a versatile, easy-to-use theme inspired by the beautiful “Virunga” documentary. It offers a variety of customization options, including six blog layouts, two header layouts, and five page templates. This opens up many possibilities to build sites that range from nonprofit and charity sites, to premium blogs, and more.
Maisha is responsive and will present your site in the best possible way on smartphones, tablets, and laptops, as well as on large desktop screens.
Stunning Front Page: Build Your Own
We styled the front page template in Maisha with great attention to detail. From the layout options, to styling and typography, everything is made to present your site at its best. The front page consists of four different content blocks that can be combined to create unique looks.
Maisha makes use of Featured Content to add your most important posts to the bottom of the front page, above the footer.
Choose the Best Blog Layout
Maisha allows you to change your blog layout in seconds. In the Customizer, choose between six different blog layouts. You can change the position of the sidebar, select a grid layout, or a full-width layout, without sidebar. Your custom layout also applies to archive pages.
To make it easier to add variety to your site, Maisha offers several page templates:
Two Custom Menus
Two custom menus are supported: a Primary Menu in the site header, and Social Links Menu as a fixed bar on the right, which allows you to link to your social media profiles, like Twitter and Facebook.
Maisha supports social media icons for CodePen, Digg, Dribbble, Facebook, Flickr, GitHub, Google+, Instagram, Linkedin, Pinterest, RSS Feed (urls with
/feed/), Tumblr, Twitter, Vimeo, WordPress, and YouTube. Linking to any of these sites will automatically display its icon in your social bar.
Maisha allows you to customize your site title, site logo, custom header, background. Inside the Customizer, choose the header layout for your site. The standard layout features a logo, site title and tagline on the left side and menu on the right. The alternative layout centers the logo, site title, tagline, and menu.
