An updated version v 1.1.1 of Writ has been submitted to WP repository. It contains several improvements. Adventurous users can download the file using this link .

Writ WordPressWrit is a new & my first publicly available WordPress theme framework that is specially made for story writers, legal blogs and content based bloggers. You can download the latest version of this theme directly from


 Writ (noun: a piece or body of writing) is based on _s theme framework by Automattic and is aimed to be completely content focused with four optional sidebars, three in footer and one on right of the content area. It features the new WordPress post formats, featured images and custom header. As web has turned to be extremely responsive, this theme is too. Now you don’t need a separate mobile theme to display most of your content to readers. The right-aligned and left aligned (alignleft, alignright) images move right & left from main content and give pull quote effect.

Notable Features

Wide content

Focused on two things only… writing and reading.

WordPress Customizer

Some extra options are available in WordPress theme customizer, which are:

  • Header background color
  • Header text color
  • Header image (optional) of 1200px x 150px can be displayed in combination with title and tagline or on its own.



There are total four widget areas available with this theme, one in right of the sidebar and the other three in footer area. Right sidebar can take a width of 360px on higher resolution devices to boost user interaction with your site, while it stays slim on standard ones.

Jetpack Support

Writ supports Jetpack features very well including new post formats, contact forms, jetpack comments and subscription forms.

Post Formats

Post formats like Standard, Aside, Link, Image, Video and Audio displays assigned blog articles in distinct beautiful ways. For example, Aside (which are usually short) and quote posts do not display title of the posts as titles are unnecessary with aside and quotes.


Asides are smart and brief.

aside format

Quote posts are boldly displayed with quote genericons.

Standard post formats show titles and content both in normal way.




Audio and  Video post formats have their own styling for displaying content, while in a link format the post title links direct to the first hyperlink you inserted in the article. Nice, isn’t it?

Editor Styles
