Theme Info & Details
The Muse is a clean and elegant responsive WordPress Blogging theme by ThemeFuse. The masonry layout, cute post format icons, and multiple post layouts make it great for all types of blogs.
The most obvious features of The Muse are the masonry layout (which is optional – you can select a list or column layout instead) and the post format icons (for image/gallery, quote, link, audio, and video). This is a great way to present blog posts to readers so they can scan for what they’re looking for while seeing lots of your other content in the process. Plus the post format icons add visual interest and a pop of color throughout the theme.
The theme also includes a few more professional features. There are some very nice pricing table and a good looking services page included in the theme. These are great if you want to include any products or services through your website. The theme has tons more features like custom widgets, lightboxes, and more that you can read about below.
What We Like About The Muse Theme
We like that this theme is a simple responsive masonry blog. It’s really nice to look at. We especially like the post format icons. They make it easy to identify what each blog post or portfolio item is about before navigating to the page.
What We Think Could Be Improved
Just a couple item could be improved upon. First, there aren’t separate icons for the image and gallery post formats. You can still clearly tell which are gallery posts, as the excerpt has a slider, but an additional icon would be nice. Second, the contact page has a full-width Google map. Nothing else is full-width on this theme so we’re not sure why the map is. Other than those two nit-picky items we love The Muse and hope you’ll take a few moments to check it out!
