Lightweight & Fast
Taproot is fully responsive and is built with a “mobile first” approach. Settings in the customizer for sizes and spacing have separate options for mobile, tablet and desktop screens.
Taproot can be easily customized at every step. Control site layout, colors, fonts and more in the WordPress Customizer. Custom theme templates can be added in your child theme.
Taproot has full support for the “Gutenberg” block editor, allowing you to create advanced page layouts right out of the box.
Taproot also works with third party page builder plugins like Elementor or Beaver Builder.
Taproot has layout options for single posts, pages, custom post types, and archive pages. Add a left or right sidebar, or use a single column layout.
Taproot uses system fonts by default, but also has full support for Google Fonts. Font sizes across the theme can be configured individually for each screen size.
Taproot’s color palette lets you define the colors used across your site. Customizer color pickers include an alpha channel for using colors with transparency.
Custom header images can be added to any posts or pages. The post title can also be set to show in the the header hero area instead of in the content area.
Theme templates can be easily overridden by copying into the child theme in a specific folder.
Hooks & Filters
Taproot includes hooks and filters that can be used to extend or customize the theme content and functionality at every step.
The default customizer settings can be easily modified to match child theme styles.
