GoPress – Free WordPress Theme

Price: Free (Licensed under GPL)
Github Repo: Github Repo
Changelog: Theme Changelog

GoPress is a super minimal and lightweight free WordPress Theme created by us, WPExplorer. This theme is a perfect for for any online magazine, news site, or blog.

The theme has been created with a focus around the basic post format to keep things super simple and make it easier for you to transition from another theme to this one or vise-versa. And as always the theme is released under the GPL license – so you can use it however and as many time as you wish.

The theme includes a standard post format with a featured image, and a video post format with a featured video instead of a featured image. Of course you can always opt to have no featured media and just add text to your posts.

Whatever you choose, GoPress has all the great feature you know and love that come with any WordPress theme. And easy to use menu system, drag and drop widget areas, and the awesome WordPress Theme Customizer (where you change the background color, add a background image, change the copyright text and more).

Default Image Sizes

The GoPress theme uses the native WordPress add_image_size function for your featured images. So make sure when you activate the theme that you run a Regeneration plugin so crop images to the correct sizes for the theme (we recommend the Force Regenerate Thumbnails Plugin) You can see all registered image sizes in the code at inc/image-sizes.php which can be used if you want to modify the sizes via a child theme. Here are the default sizes:

  • Page: 9999×9999
  • Page Full: 9999×9999
  • Post: 800×9999
  • Home Slider: 800×360
  • Entry: 400×300
  • Search Entry: 400×300
  • Post Related: 400×300

Theme Customizer Settings (custom logo, slider setup, etc)

The theme includes a few options such as setting the main site logo, selecting your homepage slider featured category, editing the footer copyright info…etc. Simply go to Appearance > Customize > Theme Settings to make your edits.
