This is a maintenance-free theme that’s easy to install and requires very little to set it up.
This theme is easy to install. All you need to do is upload and install its ZIP folder through the WordPress admin just as you would with any other theme. You can also upload the extracted version through a file manager if you prefer to install themes that way.
It’s just a matter of activating the theme after that. The only thing I would recommend doing after you activate the theme is going to the live customizer and uploading a header image by going to General Settings > Header Image.
You can also change the Breviter logo to your own by going to Header > Header Layout & Content as well as Footer > Footer Layout & Content.
You should also go to General Settings > Static Front Page and make sure the Front Page Displays setting is set to Your Latest Posts.
The free version doesn’t come with documentation, but the pro version comes with extensive documentation that you can view here.
There’s a lot you can change using the live customizer, but you’ll notice some features are unavailable to Breviter Free users. One of the first things you can change is the background image that comes with the theme. It’s a white background with light gray graphics, and you can choose to leave it, change it or remove it.
Next is the header image, which you can upload directly using the live customizer, as stated in the previous section.
Next is the Header section itself. You can only change the logo in the free version, but you can see in the image above that the pro version allows you to change your header style and add social media icons.
There’s a Content section where you can change a few settings of the pro version, settings that include the slider, the blog feed layout and the type of sidebar your site uses. The Footer section is where you can change the logo that’s in the footer. The pro version allows you to change your footer layout and insert your Instagram information.
How it Looks
This is a very simple theme, but simplicity is what gives it its clean and elegant look. Your readers will love viewing your content without any distractions, giving your blog a much more welcoming appeal while also allowing your personality to shine through.
For starters, your header can look different with the free version even without the different layouts. You can do this by giving it your logo, uploading a header image or removing the logo entirely.
The blog feed layout is a list layout by default when you use the free version. It displays your post’s featured image on the top, stylized category buttons underneath that followed by your post’s title, a large excerpt, the date it was published on and a link to the entire post after that.
Most tag clouds have poor designs, making them useless feature to many. However, blogs cover a lot of different content, more than a few different categories can cover. Thankfully, this theme features an elegant tag cloud design, allowing you to use this feature without taking away from the theme’s clean look and appeal.
The footer is where you can upload your own logo. You can also add your Instagram account information if you use the pro version.
Lastly, here’s what the 404 error page looks like.
This is a beautiful, clean and elegant theme first-time and professional bloggers alike will love. The free version comes with all of the basic functionality bloggers need, and it’s great that the pro version is there with additional features, more updates and premium support for bloggers who are ready for an upgrade.
