Hemingway Rewritten

A free WordPress theme by Jetpack

Hemingway Rewritten

Hemingway Rewritten is a classic blog theme with a parallax-scrolling header effect and a minimal, elegant design. The large featured header images make this theme great for photographers, or any users who want to share their visuals in a bold way.

Featured Header Images

If a featured image is assigned to a page or post, the image will appear in the header – otherwise, if you set a custom header it will be displayed. Note that a decorative background image works best in this area since it changes slightly based on the size of the screen, rather than an image designed to be displayed at a fixed size.

Post Formats & Sticky Posts

Featured images uploaded to Sticky Posts are displayed on the blog and archives, above the post content. Non-sticky posts’ featured images are not displayed on the blog or archives.

Sticky Posts

Hemingway Rewritten also supports the following Post Formats: Aside, Image, Video, Link, and Quote. Some examples:

You can configure up to four widget areas – one in the sidebar, three in the footer – by going to Appearance → Widgets.

Custom Menu

This theme includes one navigation menu in the header. By default it will display your Pages, but you can also assign a custom menu to the Primary Menu area under Appearance → Menus.

Custom Header and Background

Hemingway Rewritten allows you to set a large custom header under Appearance → Header. You can also customize the theme with a background color or image by going to Appearance → Background.
