Ink is a WordPress theme by the great team at Codestag. Like all their themes, Ink is well thought out and well made. You wont find tons of theme options here, just the stuff you need to make a blog or magazine that shows off your content perfectly.
Gone is the added complexity of a ‘new Options Panel’ that provide endless customization options. With Ink, we have taken the design decisions needed for a stunning website right out of the box.Codestag
I love this simple approach as it makes it so much easier to set up a website, especially if you’re already familiar with WordPress. If your a writer, do you really want to spend hours trying to make your website look as good as the demo site? I wouldn’t! I’d rather just install the theme and start writing after setting up a few options like uploading my logo and tweaking some colours.
Ink is a very versatile theme. It would work well with pretty much and type of website as long as you have some nice images and video to show off as this type of media is really what gives the theme it’s bold look.
Widget Based Layout
Unlike many themes that opt for complicated drag and drop layout builders, Ink keeps things simple by using default WordPress functionality to create layouts. You can build layouts in Ink using custom widgets to create the layouts for the theme. I really like this approach as it keeps the theme clean, lightweight and fast.
The Admin Area
The team at Codestag put a lot of effort into keeping the admin pages clean and simple. You still get enough options to make the theme your own and you can even choose between six different blog layouts but there are no additional features you need to learn.
Ink is also compatible with a host of plugins developed by Codestag. They’ve got useful plugins for things like custom sidebars and shortcodes, all for free.
