It’s Theme Thursday time, which means we have some more awesome themes to share.
Originally designed by Anders Norén, Rowling is a clean, simple, and elegant magazine theme that’s versatile enough for you to use on just about any kind of site or blog.
The theme offers responsive design and great typography, as well as many opportunities for customization. Some of the highlights include two Custom Menu locations, a Social Menu for sharing buttons, custom accent colors, a custom site logo, and a special Gallery Post Format.

I spent weeks trying to update my site earlier this year and ended up with simple and clean Revelar theme. Now I saw Rowling and it just “clicked” for me in an instant! Darker default base font, more menu customization options (e.g. Social Media menu), marked sticky posts, site description in the header… It’s just plain perfect! I always wanted my widgets in the sidebar rather than at the bottom (better visibility by far) but all the themes I tried (and I tested plenty) looked messy with widgets in the sidebar, so I used the clean Revelar and learned to live with widgets at the bottom. Somehow, Rowling makes sidebar widgets work great with the main column and it all looks absolutely neat on all screens, with posts and featured images beautifully exposed. And it keeps my images (featured and those in posts) at the resolution of my choosing without scaling them to whatever resolution the theme prefers. Thanks a lot! I finally feel my site layout is “complete”, with nothing bothering me.
