Rowling by Anders Norén

Rowling is a clean, simple and elegant magazine theme for WordPress. It has been submitted to the WordPress Theme Depository where it soon will be available as a free download.

Rowling is developed by Anders Norén. While you’re at it, feel free to check out some of my other themes.

Features in Rowling

Built for Magazines

Rowling is built from the ground up with magazines in mind – from the easily navigable archive pages to the beautiful single posts and pages. Your posts will feel right at home.

Responsive and Retina Ready

The layout in Rowling is also built to adapt for devices of all sizes. Your posts will look and read just as great on a 27” iMac as on a smartphone or tablet.

Great Typography

Rowling combines the serif font Merriweather and the sans-serif font Lato to great effect. The serif post titles gives the theme an editorial vibe, while Lato ensures that menus, widgets and post content all are easily readable in all sizes.

Related Posts

The single post template in Rowling features a tightly integrated related posts section, which displays up to three related posts with thumbnails, categories and the post titles. There’s always something more to read.

Extra Customizability

Custom accent color support, custom logo support , three menu areas (including a social menu), four widget areas and three custom widgets (Flickr and Recent Posts/Comments with thumbnails) makes it easy to give Rowling a personal touch.


Rowling also features support for the gallery post format, editor style support and translation-ready code. Included translations: Swedish/svenska.
