Content, meet versatility: Our most content-rich theme, Rania offers flexibility to display your latest content alongside popular, evergreen posts, in a variety of feed formats and features. Showcase posts in an editorial style grid layout, or customize it to feel like a traditional blog with a sidebar.
New! Color Integration: New for our themes, Rania includes color controls directly within the theme Customizer, so you can apply color with just a few clicks (no need to purchase our Color Pack plugins with this theme!).
Showcase what matters: Feature a striking landscape-style post at the top of your Home Page, or as an interstitial. Or, showcase side-by-side posts at the top. Mix and match with Rania’s seven custom widgets across two sidebars and three interstitials to display what matters to you most!
Shop the Post integration: Add on our Shop the Post plugin for $29, and readers can shop each post’s rewardStyle or Shopstyle widget directly from the Home Page and Archival Pages. Purchase the plugin here.
Layouts galore: Choose a full-width template or sidebar template on any post or page, giving you control over how to showcase different content verticals. Info pages may also feature a two-column design. Amp up your archival options by adding on our Grid plugin for $39.
Beautiful Fonts: Rania comes pre-loaded with a gorgeous font family that’s sophisticated, modern, and easy to read. Power up your font options by adding on our Font Customizer plugin.
