Do you appreciate simplicity, elegance and white space? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out Emporia, our latest child theme for Base.
Emporia is a hybrid portfolio/blog theme and allows you to create three column page layouts so that your site can read like a magazine, and not a blog (see an example). It also comes packaged with five alternative styles including Light, Dark, Clean, Grunge, and Earth.
iPhone, iPad and Kindle are no match for Emporia. It will adapt to different screen sizes so that your website will work and be optimized for any of these mobile devices. Even the slideshow is responsive. Woot!
If you are using a modern web browser, you’ll see some special CSS treats such as text shadow, box shadows, columns and border radius. If you are not using a modern web browser, shame on you! 🙂
The theme options page allows you to configure things such as fonts, styles, upload a logo, upload a favicon, add Google Analytics tracking, and fine-tune your layout.
Automatic Theme Updates
When new versions of Emporia are released, you can update automatically from your WordPress admin panel by installing the GPP Theme Updates plugin. Easy as pie.
In order to download Emporia, you’ll need to be a paid member of Graph Paper Press (view plans). If you are already a paid member, then hop on over to your member dashboard and start downloading. Remember, Emporia is a child theme for Base, so make sure you download and install both Base and Emporia. Then simply activate Emporia to get running.
