Taproot is a free, multipurpose theme for WordPress, suitable for many types of sites.
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.
Here are some of the features that make Taproot so awesome.
Taproot has full support for the “Gutenberg” block editor, allowing you to create advanced page layouts right out of the box.
If you prefer a page builder like Elementor or Beaver Builder, Taproot includes templates for using page builders for just the content, or create a completely custom page with a unique header and footer.
Taproot has both “full” and “boxed” layout styles available. Pages and posts can use a left or right sidebar layout, or a full layout with no sidebars.
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.
Post & Page Settings
Taproot includes a theme settings sidebar on single pages and posts that allow you to control the sidebar layout, title visibility and placement, and custom header image.
Taproot is made with developers in mind. Whether you need to extend the theme from a plugin using hooks and filters, or create custom templates in a child theme, Taproot has you covered.
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.
