Integer WordPress Theme Review

Integer was designed by Dmitry Mayorov who runs ThemePatio, and is billed as a “blogging theme that features a single-column layout, clean typography, and overall minimalistic style.”

Integer is heavily inspired by Medium’s paired down aesthetic and for the most part it achieves the Medium look and feel. In fact, in my previous post, I made a tutorial showing how to replicate the look and feel of using a combination of the Integer theme and the Gutenberg plugin.

Integer is quick to install and fast to use thanks to its light weight code base. It’s a bare bones theme and therefore a good option for anyone looking to get a blog up and running in literally minutes. It’s also great if you’re not a fan of the endless customization options that ship with most new themes today.

On the other hand, the lack of even the most rudimentary customization options, such as the ability to change font sizes and link colors, can be too restrictive for some. It would have been nice to have an option to change the front page post views to show excerpts only instead of the default full-post setting.

There is a premium version of the theme available for around $39, which gives you some control over font colors and sizes, and offers a two-column home page layout. However, you only find out about the premium version once you’ve installed the theme and looked at the “extra features” tab on the customization screen. It would be really helpful if the developer could make that “lite” vs “premium” distinction clear on the Integer WordPress repository page.
