Osloby Pixel Union

Oslo is a stunning blend of refinement and organization. It’s a mature two-column theme fit for portfolio and general blog use, built around a supremely customizable sidebar and beautiful typography.


Oslo is fully responsive and scales to fit a device and browser of any size. Its two-column layout will double your blog’s visual impact. On larger screens, your posts will be displayed side-by-side with metadata cleanly tucked away. Oslo’s sidebar is masterfully organized and hugely customizable. Add as much or as little info as you’d like, upload a Custom Header Image to serve as the background image for the sidebar, and adjust Oslo’s menu opacity to create the perfect panel. We’ve detailed your options below.


Branding your site and building an unmistakable online identity are important. One great benefit of Oslo is the ability to display a logo in place of a site title.

Sidebar Background

You have a lot of room to exercise your design muscles in Oslo’s sidebar. The theme uses the Custom Header Image feature to serve as a background image for your sidebar. Upload a new image, or select an existing one from your Media Library. The right choice will give your site character and set the perfect tone.

Sidebar Text

You can control the color of text in the sidebar. While the menu’s text will always be white (to optimize readability), you can adjust the color of your site’s title and description.

Sidebar Menu

You can change how much of your sidebar background image shows through by adjusting the transparency of the menu background in the Customizer. If you’ve set a sidebar image, the menu will appear as a dark overlay.

Social Media Links


We know it’s important to keep your audience informed and connected. Oslo also gives you the option of adding social media links to the bottom of the sidebar.

Currently, Oslo offers support for: Bandcamp, Behance, Delicious, deviantART, Digg, Dribbble, Etsy, Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, Google+, Instagram, Last.fm, E-Mail, Myspace, Pinboard, Pinterest, Rdio, Skype, Soundcloud, Spotify, StumbleUpon, Svpply, Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube. Link to your social accounts so readers can find and follow you across the web.
