Brixton has been one of the best selling WordPress Blog Themes on Themeforest for over a year now. That’s why we decided it’s time to take it to another level and bring some great new features.

Don’t worry, all new features can be turned on and off. Everyone who likes Brixton just the way it is, your design will be intact. We believe that the original design must stay the same so that people who love the vanilla design won’t be disappointed with version 4. 🙂


Let’s see what some of the most exciting new features are:

  • Revolution Slider (extra $19 value)
  • Several new Sidebar options
  • Brand new Widgets
  • Improved speed
  • Minor CSS fixes
  • Background image for the header
  • Video Widget
  • Magazine Style


Amazing Revolution Slider

With the inclusion of Revolution Slider, we wanted to bring a new level of interactivness to the Theme if you need it. In the world of WordPress who doesn’t know the most renowned and modern Slider?
Slider Revolution is an innovative, responsive WordPress Slider Plugin that displays your content the beautiful way. Whether it’s a Slider, Carousel, Hero Scene or even a whole Front Page, the visual, drag & drop editor will let you tell your own stories in no time!

But like with all other features if you don’t need it, you can simply choose not to display it and your theme will stay exactly the same. Our demos show some different usage examples but options are almost endless. Check their home page to see a lot more variations of the usage of revolution slider.


New Sidebar Options

For users that would like to include more content on the home page we added several (6) new Sidebar Options:

  • Left Sidebar under Header
  • Right Sidebar under Header
  • Fullwidth Sidebar under Header
  • Left Sidebar above footer
  • Left Sidebar above footer
  • Fullwidth Sidebar above footer


Each sidebar can contain one or more widgets. The best examples where we show what can be added to Brixton are:


In Magazine style demo, you can check how widgets are positioned before and after the main blog part. Extra content can be anything from a simple post slideshow to video widgets for your interactive content. And you can further divide content with Revolution Slider widget for an even more “magazine like” feel. The other preview shows how the Theme looks without the main blog part, with widgets only.

Brand New Widgets

We prepared several new widgets for this release for a more interactive look and feel of the theme. Posts are now presented with a slideshow and you can add single posts to your sidebar. Video widget will help you with your interactive presentation. You can add Youtube, Vimeo and even self hosted HTML videos.


It’s needless to say that this is by far the biggest update of Brixton so far. We listened carefully to your suggestions and feature requests and together we built Brixton V4.0, an innovative mix of blog and magazine Theme. And for the first week after release we even lowered the price to only $34. A perfect opportunity to update your website with a modern and elegant new design.

It was time for a next major update to make the theme ready for 2016. Don’t worry, nothing major in terms of design and all new features can be turned on/off. So everyone that likes it just the way it is, your design will be intact.
