Many ways to show your content
There’re four post header variants, multiple archive types and numerous gallery types.
Each post and each category can be styled individually.

Authentic includes our custom Pinterest «Pin It» buttons on all images. It can be either galleries of any type or simple post images.

Great social engagement
Make your content go viral: Authentic has built-in sticky share buttons, custom Twitter, Facebook and Instagram widgets.

Additional content formatting features
To make your content look beatiful we added additional formatting features: drop caps, lead-ins, parapgraph containers.
It’s super easy to use them: nothing to code, just select the items from the default WordPress visual editor.
