Breakout is a beautiful, responsive WordPress theme that shows us a little shine and gloss are still very much in. It’s built with the renowned Theme Blvd framework, which includes Twitter Bootstrap, FontAwesome, basic retina support, and exclusive compatibility with our most popular end-user WordPress plugins.

100% Responsive

The entire theme, all the way down through the Theme Blvd Framework at the core, has been carefully built around the modern era of responsive web design. No longer should we be concerned with specifically just the iPad or the iPhone, but we need to focus on the entire mobile and tablet experience, as a whole. That is the approach we take at Theme Blvd.

Make sure to view the theme’s Live Preview on your various devices and browse through all of the demonstrated features.

HiDPI/Retina Support

Whether your website visitors are browsing from a Retina MacBook Pro, a Retina iPad, or any of the other high-resolution devices that inevitably will come onto the market, Breakout has you covered. The theme’s stylesheets automatically check each website visiter’s device pixel-density ratio, and then serve up all of the theme’s details crafted for their specific resolution. The result is a graphically beautiful experience, no matter the device.

Theme Options

Our goal is to provide you with the most flexibility as possible with the look of your site, while letting you avoid sifting through an endless abyss of options. You can get a good idea of the stylistic options that come with the theme by looking at the Live Preview. Also, you have full control of typography and link colors, including using any font from the Google Font Directory.

  • Options Tab 1: Styles
  • Options Tab 2: Layout
  • Options Tab 3: Content
  • Options Tab 4: Configuration
