Introducing Semicolon

Semicolon is a brand new magazine theme for WordPress. It’s simple, clean, and it’s got quite a unique grid layout with support for featured posts.

Semicolon WordPress Theme

Semicolon was initially created for WP Magazine, an online news site about WordPress in Russian. It’s got support for featured posts, a social profiles menu, related posts, author bios, and a few widget areas.

Head over to the demo to take a look around. The latest version is always available for download on (don’t forget to rate it!), and if you ever get stuck, please visit the the FAQ and the support forums.

Semicolon is based on the amazing _s starter theme, and is distributed for free under the GNU GPL. Enjoy!

  • Another beautiful theme, Konstantin. I can’t wait until a suitable project comes along so I can give it a whirl.

  • As a big fans of underscores, this theme is really cool, it responsiveness, clean typography and the white space just perfect. Gonna look inside the code to learn about better coding :)

    Thanks Konstantin.

  • Hi Konstantin,
    this is really my fav theme for my website update.

    I have one question:
    Is it possible to get submenus as dropdowns in the main menu ?

    Visit my Site to see my current menu…
    i have to stick with this type of menu and would love to use your theme :)

    thank you vermy much

    • Thanks for your comment Tobi! Dropdown menus was something I left out intentionally, but who knows, maybe I’ll include it in a future update, or wait for a pull request on GitHub ;)
