Introducing Gazette, a minimalist magazine-style theme available for free.
New Theme: Gazette
It’s Theme Thursday, and we’re happy to launch a brand new free theme.
Gazette, designed by yours truly, is a clean and flexible theme perfectly suited for minimalist magazine-style sites, personal blogs, or any content-rich site. It allows you to highlight specific articles on the homepage, and to balance readability with a powerful use of photography — all in a layout that works on any device.
Read more about Gazette on the Theme Showcase, or activate it on your site from Appearance → Themes.

Wow – great shots! Love the specs, love the layout, and love the name! *slow clap*
This is an excellent structure for blogs that feature a lot of photos or graphics. I haven’t gotten that far with my blog to use it yet, and how does one take photos of the learning and/or writing process when one is no longer teaching? But, since I just got a new DSLR with four new lenses, maybe I’ll figure something out and switch to your theme. It is really beautiful, and from what I saw of the settings screen Gazzette is easy to use. Best wishes for much success with it!
It’s stunning & will definitely be my next theme.
lovely. I like the colour.
Aww…O! that it had a nice sidebar permanently.
Unfortunately, it’s a no. Though it looks good!
Using it right now in my Spanish entertainment news blog, it seems like it fits its purpose so far.
It’s a lovely theme, but the “stutter” in the way the theme renders gives me pause.
On the front page, the theme loads and renders the non-featured articles first, then “pops” in the featured articles and shifts the page down. On single pages, the article renders a banner in the content area, then a full-width banner appears, shifting the content, and the first banner vanishes.
I suppose the theme is coded to handle these things (the featured posts area, the single post thumbnail) through JS that’s loaded at the end, which results in the browser doing one thing, changing its mind, and “stuttering.” And I suspect there’s probably nothing that can be done about that.
Really Nice! Kind of new to changing themes, which means I have never done it before. What happens when I switch from Chateau to Gazette? Any special considerations I need to keep in mind? Thanks!
