Casper – a spooky, Ghost-like WordPress theme. . .
One of the most appealing things about Ghost (an up-and-coming blogging platform we’ve had an eye on since early 2013) is its undeniable beauty. That’s not to say that WordPress isn’t beautiful, because it is* – however, Ghost brings a certain extra something to the blogging table: it’s slick, smooth and simple in ways that WordPress simply isn’t (yet). That’s not to say Ghost is better than WordPress – after all, they’re completely different systems… (more on this in a future post). However, one of the things I’ve personally thought just about every time I’ve seen a fresh install of Ghost is: ‘darn that’s a nice looking default theme!’ A thought that is almost invariably followed by another: ‘I wonder if there’s a theme like that available for WordPress…’ Well, as it happens, there is: introducing ‘Casper‘ by Lacy Morrow.
(A Ghost-Like WordPress Theme)
Summary: Based on underscores and inspired by the Ghost blogging platform, Casper is essentially a WordPress port of the default Ghost theme by the same name – created with the goal of combining the look and feel of the aforementioned theme with the power of WordPress.
– created by freelance web developer Lacy Morrow.
*although beauty is, of course, ‘in the eye of the beholder’!
Note (credit where it’s due): WPTavern wrote an excellent post on this very same topic about three weeks ago (link to said post) …I just happen to like the theme so much I thought I’d give it an extra shout out here as well!
