Reverie WordPress Theme Review

Reverie is a versatile HTML5 theme framework for WordPress from theme developers from ThemeFortress that is based on the ZURB Foundation.

Reverie Theme Overview

Reverie is not like some other frameworks that are packed full of user-friendly features. That is to say, there is no options page for non-technical WordPress users to change things around easily. Consider Reverie as a blank canvas for creating your own unique theme. It’s very well coded and is optimised for search engines too.

Reverie Theme Menu

The default design is minimal yet has everything you need with a menu area at the top and bottom of the page and widget areas in the sidebar and footer. It includes an archives template, full width template and a custom page template that you can use as a base for creating your own page templates.

Compatible bbPress 2.0

The framework was designed to work with the new bbPress 2.0 WordPress plugin. bbPress integration is still actually pretty rare. I had predicted months ago that most designers would be making their themes bbPress friendly but it doesn’t seemed to have happened yet; therefore I’m sure this framework will prove popular with those who are looking for a good theme that works with bbPress out of the box.

Unfortunately, there is no support for post formats however the framework is optimised for use on mobile devices.

Should use Reverie Theme?

Reverie used to be a good framework for those who are looking for a blank canvas to create a unique design for their website. Nowadays you can just switch to Astra or Kandene and automatically get tons of free website templates. Even beginners should be able to change colors, fonts and layouts as the code is well documented. Those of you who are looking for a user-friendly drag-and-drop framework though should look elsewhere.
