Review the Demo

Chevez is a magazine-style theme with clean spacing, sharp contrast, and a shadowed look. Content is emphasized in over four different customizable layouts. Controlling which posts go where is as simple as choosing a category from a dropdown menu. This flexibility is combined with configurable menus, custom coloring, and theme behavior settings, giving you unparalleled freedom to use Chevez in the way you need.

Images are in central focus in the Chevez design. Each post is assigned an identity image that follows with it throughout the site, ideal for any content-driven blog. These images are managed through WordPressÕ built-in Media Library, and sized & cropped automatically, as needed by the theme. The result is functionality that works instantly, out of the box. No additional per-post configuration requiredÐof course, you can tweak anything you like for precise control.

Chevez comes with our standard pledge of a bug-free experience, cross-browser support on all modern browsers, and continual free updates in the future. Still intrigued? Check out the full list of offered features below, or take the demo for a spin.
