Carbon is a WordPress theme from Bedrock Themes, developed with love by a small team of developers in Europe. Our goal with Carbon was to create a modern, lightweight theme that had a lot of scope for customization but would also comply with web and WordPress best practices. We also wanted to build something that would look good without using images, but would work well with them too. Carbon is not a child theme, so you can make your own child themes using it.

Technical Specs

The HTML framework used is “Skeleton” by Dave Gamache. jQuery is not used in the theme for optimal performance on slow networks (NB: Plugins you add may cause jQuery to be included).

Semantic HTML 5 and CSS3 are used. Care has been taken to make the theme as accessible as possible.

Minimum Requirements

  • PHP 5.3 and above
  • WordPress 4.1 and above

Browser Support

The theme is designed with all modern browsers in mind (inc IE9+).


All web fonts are from Google Fonts.
