Literatum Theme Review

I’m using the Literatum theme by Rafael Martin over on The Social Historian website, a long-form story website about social history.


It is compatible with the Aesop Story Engine which is a great plugin, and I like it’s modern look. I also like that the posts I write will be organised on custom category pages that have featured images. Another nice feature is that I’m able to set the read time (or word count) to show up on all the posts. It is also possible to upload a video to use in place of the featured image although I haven’t tried this yet. The only problem with this theme is that the author is no longer actively supporting it, which is a shame although I’ve had no real problems with it so far. Despite the lack of support, it has an excellent rating on ThemeForest.

Great theme but no support

Excellent design for writers or anyone who writes long-form content. The theme is responsive and compatible with the Aesop Story Engine plugin but the author is no longer actively supporting it although he does occasionally answer user questions left in the comment section over at ThemeForest.
