The Charlene Theme

Charlene is a WordPress theme built for the writer in you. Version 2 has been completely reworked from top to bottom, do not expect a direct upgrade from version 1 or older. That being said, the transition should be quite painless.


Charlene 2 is fully responsive utilizing a simple set of breakpoints and deliberate design decisions.


Charlene gives you a few simple customization options allowing you to add a personal touch by changing background, link and accent colors.

Post Formats

Charlene supports the aside, image, video, audio, quote, link, and gallery post formats. Post formats are intentionally un-styled leaving it open to your imagination.

Note: If you downloaded this theme prior to October 30th, 2014 be advised that shortcodes have been removed from the theme to comply with best practices. I plan to make a decision as to how or if the column shortcodes should be handled, a plugin is under consideration. In the mean time you can continue to use the grid classes found in the themes stylehseet.
