Cover2 is free! You can buy me a coffee if you want. But it's also fine to just enter a "0" and download it at no cost!
Cover2 is a single-column, content-first theme built to tell your story. Widgets and menus are only a click away, but the idea is that they're not what users come for; it's content. So why distract with sidebars, menus, and widgets? Show your readers what they want!

Once upon a time, I built a theme for WordPress called Cover. Its fairly unimaginative name derived from the fact that posts (and pages) sported a featured image which, wait for it, covered the width and height of the screen. Its design was inspired by Medium, which was new at the time. The idea of a theme without a sidebar was new to me, so I set out to build my own.
Fast forward three (almost four) years later, and Cover2 has been rewritten from the ground up with many improvements: SVG icons instead of icon fonts for improved accessibility, cleaner, responsive typography, and better plugin support.
