Monet is a delicate, responsive theme ideal for showcasing photography, design, and other visual-rich work. Its crisp typography ensures that your text looks just as appealing as your images.
Monet is perfect for travel and food blogs, or any other image-heavy site.
A Versatile Theme
While Monet was designed for artists and photographers to showcase their work, it’s equally suitable for bloggers, scrapbookers, and writers who want to add a bit of visual flair to their site.
Your Design, Everywhere
Monet will look great on all devices — from desktop computers and laptops to smartphones and tablets.
Custom Post Formats
When you assign a Custom Post Format to a post, the theme will overlay a related icon on the post’s archive listing. This lets your readers know what type of content to expect from each item.
Monet includes support for featured content — allowing you to showcase the most important work, photos, or blog posts on your site. The five most recent posts tagged as featured content will be displayed in a slider on the homepage.
Custom Header and Background
Monet lets you upload your own header image via Appearance → Customize → Header. You can also customize your blog with a background color or image by going to Appearance → Customize → Colors & Backgrounds.
Custom Color Palettes
Monet comes with a set of free color palettes. With a WordPress.com Premium or Business upgrade, you can change the colors on your Monet-powered site and further customize your palettes. Below are a few examples demonstrating the flexibility of this theme.
Monet uses a series of custom sidebars to allow you to keep things flexible. All widget areas will stay hidden unless you add widgets to them.
- Footer widget area — displays at the bottom of every page on the site.
- Right sidebar widget area — displays on single posts and pages, but not the homepage or archive pages.
Contributors Page Template
Monet includes the one custom page template. The Contributors Template creates a list of all of the contributors to your website sorted according to the number of posts each person has published. This features is great for magazines and other multi-author blogs.
