And you have a place to add more sidebars below the Revolution slider and above the footer.

The typography of the Theme

Typography plays an important role in web design, especially in minimal blog Themes. I wanted a font that has great readability and also some playfulness in it so the blog doesn’t have a dull feel to it. Fonts are:

  • Lora Google Font for headings.
  • Karla Google Font for body and menu text.
  • Jasmine Premium Font for the Logo.

Responsive & Retina Ready

Everly is fully responsive and retina ready. It will look amazing on any mobile device.

Responsive Design of Everly WordPress Blog Theme

In case you would like to do a little more research about free Themes and which one to choose, we prepared a great collection of Top Blog Themes for the year 2020. So you can choose the perfect new WordPress Theme for the start of your blogging journey.


Below are some of the most common questions related to our Themes.

The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet – this is probably the single most asked question related to WordPress. It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the theme, you just need to uninstall the first package. Inside you will find the Theme, documentation, necessary plugins, child theme, and demo content. So make sure that the file you are uploading is named simply everly-lite.zip which is the main theme.
