Sorbet Theme

Sorbet is a colorful, mouth-watering treat for your personal blog or website. The mobile-friendly design looks great on any device, while post formats highlight your best content. If you’re seeking a fun new look for your site, we think you’ll enjoy a taste of Sorbet.

Post Formats & Sticky Posts

Post Formats and Sticky Posts are denoted with different colors and icons above the post content. Combine formatted content with standard posts to give your blog a fresh, varied look.


Featured Images

Featured Images are displayed above the post content on the blog index and archive pages at 700 pixels wide.

Image-formatted posts display the featured image on single post view as well.



Sorbet includes four optional widget areas: a Sidebar alongside your content, and three Header Columns located behind a gear icon in the header.

Sorbet without active Primary Sidebar

If you haven’t added widgets to the Sidebar, Sorbet becomes a sleek one-column theme, making its tumblelog-style design perfect for cataloguing your web finds.

Configure these areas by going to Customize → Widgets.

  1. Create a new Custom Menu, and assign it to the Social Links Menu location
  2. Add links to each of your social services using the Links panel
  3. Icons for your social links will automatically appear under the heart icon in the header
