Northwestern is a theme inspired by the gray and green atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest United States. It’s clean and minimalistic so your visitors can focus on your writing. However, Northwestern is also packed with a couple neat tricks:
- Custom header images
- Customizable colors
- Post format support
- Auto-updates through your WordPress dashboard
- WooCommerce support
To install Northwestern, simply download the ZIP file and upload it to your WordPress installation through the “Upload Theme” page. Once you’ve done this, simply activate the theme and head to the “Customization” section to fine-tune your colors and change your header image if desired.
This theme, though not installed through the WordPress.org repository, supports automatic updates through your WordPress dashboard. You will find the available updates in the “Updates” section of your dashboard when they are available. You can upgrade with a single click– just like any theme from the official WordPress.org repository.
Northwestern can be downloaded and used, for free, on personal or commercial websites. The theme may not be re-sold or re-distributed. Modifications can be made to the theme for personal use, though if you have a suggestion for a modification that might help others out, feel free to email me and I will consider including it in a future version of the theme.
