Ithaka Responsive WordPress Blog Theme

Ithaka Responsive WordPress Blog Theme

Ithaka is a simple, bold blog theme with a modern design, thought and built to feature your stories and passions, inspired from great literature masterpieces like Moby Dick or The Odyssey. It supports all the post formats and many popular plugins to allow you to expand the possibilities of a simple blog: featured touch-ready sliders, contact forms, sutitiles, simple “like-this” function, live preview ready, infinite scroll, different home page layouts, native WordPress Customizer option panel (easy to export-import), ability to add your ad-banner. It comes with an automatic updater as well to allow the user to install the latest version directly from the backend, without downloading the theme from ThemeForest again and again. WPML and RTL compatible.


A big effort has been put into typography: Ithaka supports all the available Google fonts through its efficient UI, it also allows to use fonts from other other services, in particular it comes with a built-in function to display fonts from Google and Typekit both on the front end and on the backend, in the visual editor. Additional select boxes allow the user to add the main classes to paragraphs and headings.
