Opti is a blog theme for WordPress, that has magazine elements. We wanted to make something that was somewhere between a blog and a magazine allowing bloggers to create intricate attractive sites that show off their content. Opti makes your content shine.

At the top of the homepage is a featured content space. This highlights your most recent post bringing attention to your latest content.

Homepage Categories

To the left of the homepage there are some optional homepage categories. These let you give your visitors a taster of the content on your website, and allow you to direct the content as you want. In the theme control panel you can edit some settings related to the homepage categories. Specifically you can disable them if you don’t want them to display. You can select which categories display in this space, and you can choose how many posts are displayed with each category. All of these things give you the ability to make your homepage look the way you want!

On the blog posts we have added a custom related posts space. This selects related posts based upon the current blog posts category and is designed to encourage your visitors to travel around your blog finding new content. Of course, if you don’t like it then there’s an option to disable this in the theme settings.

Opti includes support for Featured Content – allowing you to control what content appears in the top box on the homepage of the site. The 4 most recent posts tagged as featured content will be displayed in a slider on the homepage. To enable the slider simply select the post tag you want to use and enter it on the “Appearance → Customize → Featured Content” page in the Featured Content area. Then, just tag up the posts you want to be flagged as special and Opti will add them in automatically.

Custom Sidebars

Opti uses a series of custom sidebars to allow you to keep things nice and flexible.

Custom Templates

Opti includes some custom page templates. These give you some additional functionality that you wouldn’t get with a normal theme.
