Mockup - A Responsive WordPress Blog Theme

Thanks for checking out Mockup, a multi-layout WordPress theme

The goal with Mockup was to build a clean, fast, and super easy-to-use theme with great touches throughout; be it the multiple layouts (with per-post overrides), the quick and elegant animations, the reader-friendly comments area, the un-missable (yet optional) featured story area, custom profile page backgrounds and descriptions, the customizable elements etc., Mockup is well thought-out, crafted with care, and suitable for many purposes.

Layout variety
Mockup includes 3 blog index and 5 single post layouts (plus 4 page templates), all of which fall in line with the theme’s overall look and feel in order to offer a consistent experience. Overriding layouts per-post is also possible. Read more about the layouts here.

Unique comments area
Instead of simply tucking a standard comment form at the end of a post, Mockup gives comments their own area altogether. By separating the commenting area from the post itself, real importance is placed on reader feedback.

Fine-tuning
Mockup comes with a number of settings that let you fine-tune different elements of the theme. Whether it’s selecting layouts or changing the post font size, line height and content animation speed/distance to your liking, little changes can be made quickly and with ease. And we’re always listening for customer feedback..

Logo placement
The logo has two possible placements: the more standard header placement next to the menu button, or alternatively – for a cleaner look – inside the slide-out menu. This change can be made on the settings page with a single click. An easy to use logo uploader is included as well.

Featured story
Adding an optional featured story to the blog index header makes highlighting your greatest content a breeze. If you’d like to hide the area though, either temporarily or permanently, you can do so with a single click on the theme’s settings page.

Profile page
More than just a place for your latest posts, the Mockup author profile page can be personalized with per-author header background images and descriptions, as well as links to social presences.

Shortcodes
Mockup comes with a selection of shortcodes, all of which are highly customizable. You can have a detailed look at what they offer here.

Full-screen, touch-enabled gallery
Mockup supports the PhotoSwipe gallery plugin. PhotoSwipe uses WordPress’ own ‘Add media’ interface to insert galleries, which means you don’t have to learn a whole new UI just to add a quick gallery to a post. It also works great on all browsers and touch devices. You can have a look at an example gallery here.
