Forte is a simple and modern blog / magazine theme by Themebeans that is great for a wide range of projects. This theme focuses on large images and text and simple, easy to read articles which are perfectly suited for posts with lots of images or videos. I think this type of WordPress theme would be perfect for blogs about travel or anything where impressive photography needs to be shown off.
This type of layout has become very popular in 2016 and there are many themes with similar layouts but I love how simple Themebeans keep things and if you like this kind of layout, Forte would be a great choice.
One thing I was disappointed by was that there is no demo import at the time of writing this. The demo data is provided as an xml file which is fine but the ability to import this file and also set up theme options to match the demo site would be nice. Themebeans do offer a service to install the theme and make it look like the demo and they currently charge $49 for that. You can find out more by reading their online documentation.
Themebeans keep simplicity at the heart of the framework they use to build their themes and you can really see this in the admin area. The WordPress customizer is used for all the options (which is what WordPress recommends). All you need to do it visit the Customise page in the admin area and start playing around with the options. There are no fancy controls or custom styles so everything looks familiar if you have used WordPress before.
One of the best things about Forte is the range of plugins that work with it. Themebeans have a bunch of their own plugins that work with the theme and many well known plugins such as mailbag will also work.
