WirePress is premium WordPress theme perfect for online magazines, blogs and editorial sites.

WordPress themes don’t need to be complicated. WirePress includes everything you need to create your own eye catching magazine but without the unnecessary feature bloat. The end result is a great looking theme that is easy to setup and use.

WirePress is built on the same great foundation as previous themes Franklyn and Sideways 2 which have both consistently received 5 star ratings and great feedback from users.

Getting Support

If you encounter a bug in the theme or have any pre purchase questions you can get support by posting your issue or question on the item’s comments page. When posting responses to your post please use the “reply” button on your original post so your conversation is threaded. This makes it easier to follow.




Bring special attention to articles and reviews with the Feature Post option. Feature posts are given a unique eye catching post layout and are featured prominently on the home page.



The Taqyeem Review plugin is the best premium review plugin out there. It allows you to instantly turn any post or page into a review via simple options on the post / page edit screen. – Find out more




Your site will scale nicely to fit all devices from smart phones up to HD TVs. WirePress has an image-less design so your site will look razor sharp on retina devices.

Responsive layout


Customizing WirePress couldn’t be simpler. Select from light and dark base colour schemes for individual page elements (header, drop downs, content and footer) and use colour pickers to set accent colours. All this is done through the theme options page or via the WordPress Customiser.

WordPress customizer support


Spice up your pages and posts with easy to use shortcodes including: buttons, accordions, toggles, dividers, columns and floated quotes. All the included shortcodes can be configured and inserted into your page content via TinyMCE buttons on the content editor.


WirePress includes complete .po/.mo files and is 100% translation ready.


Framework Features


WirePress includes a 2,000+ word documentation file providing step by step instructions for all the common tasks you will need to perform from installing and updating the theme to creating post and pages. Support (handled via the item comments page) is some of the best and fastest you will find on ThemeForest.
