Smash: A personal, super-customizable, multi-layout WordPress theme
Thank you so much for having a look at Smash!
The goal with Smash was to build a truly unique and expressive WordPress blogging theme. Starting with the unique menu, unmissable position of the author image in the header, big headlines, full-screen images, and ending with multiple layouts and placing an insane amount of customization options at your fingertips, Smash is Bonfire’s most personal, varied and option-filled theme yet.
We wanted to offer a well-defined, instantly memorable design and — through a selection of layouts that are different but still unmistakeably Smash — last you a long time.
Please do have a look at Smash’s demos site here as well as the rest of the content on this page to find out more information about some of the more stand-out elements of the theme, as well as what you can expect when you purchase a Bonfire product.
