Authentic - Lifestyle Blog & Magazine WordPress Theme

Theme Features

Super clean design

Authentic is a minimal blog and magazine theme for WordPress focused on content.

This theme will give the great browsing experience for your followers.

Highly customizable

Don’t worry, highly customizable doesn’t mean you’ll have to spend long hours setting up your theme.

We stick to WordPress best practices: «Decision, not options» and that’s why Authentic has only the really necessary options.

Many ways to show your content

There’re four post header variants, multiple archive types and numerous gallery types.

Each post and each category can be styled individually.

Pinterest integration

Authentic includes our custom Pinterest «Pin It» buttons on all images. It can be either galleries of any type or simple post images.

Great social engagement

Make your content go viral: Authentic has built-in sticky share buttons, custom Twitter, Facebook and Instagram widgets.

Additional content formatting features

To make your content look beatiful we added additional formatting features: drop caps, lead-ins, parapgraph containers.

It’s super easy to use them: nothing to code, just select the items from the default WordPress visual editor.

Ultra responsive

Despite rich layout possibilities, Authentic is fully responsive and looks great on any device.

It’s not empty words. In fact we tested Authentic on seven various physical devices to make sure we deliver the best quality.

Blazing fast support

We not only sell themes, but provide the greates after-sales support ever.
