Fullby: A Free Magazine Theme For WordPress Based on Bootstrap

Fullby is a beautiful new free WordPress theme released last week, created by designer Andrea Marchetti. The theme is fully responsive, based on Bootstrap and features a grid style. This super light theme includes only two images and is fully customizable via CSS.


If the design looks familiar, it’s because it was inspired by Twenty Fourteen. However, it’s not a child theme. Unlike Twenty Fourteen, Fullby is a fluid theme that expands to use all the available space on any screen, including desktop, mobile, tablet and larger screens.

Fullby Features:

  • Gallery and Video Support – easily copy and paste a Youtube ID to publish.
  • Fluid, modular and responsive grid style for posts
  • Built with Bootstrap and Font Awesome – 369 icons available
  • Featured Header Content – add “featured” content to header by using the “featured” tag in the post
  • 2 Menus and 2 Sidebars
  • Popular and Latest Post Widget

Every aspect of this theme shows attention to detail, including category pages, widgets and date-based archives. Single posts have a very striking appearance and are just as beautiful as the homepage design:


Check out a live demo to see the theme at its finest.

Fullby caught my eye the other day, so I decided to install it on a test site and check it out. I assumed that there would be quite a bit of configuring to get it to look anything like the demo but was pleasantly surprised. There are no design-related options to tinker with. Further customization, however, will require some CSS knowledge.

If you’re looking for a lean blogging or magazine style theme that is based on Bootstrap, then Fullby is a strong option. Download Fullby for free from Marchetti Design.

  1. Yes the demo site looks good.

    “Fullby is a fluid theme that expands to use all the available space on any screen, including desktop, mobile, tablet and larger screens.”

    Works well when you resize the browser.

  2. what is “Boostrap” in 3rd feature? or it is short form of Bootstrap? Theme looks good however. I may try it.

  3. How do I get the same look as the “Popular” and “Latest” sidebar? Is this a plug-in? I’m hoping to add it to the left sidebar of 3rdlevelcomics.com

  4. I like the theme but unfortunately it has a very bad score at google page speed insights, so the theme is not an option for me.

      • Hello Andrea, I love the Fullby theme! I installed next gen gallery with it and the gallery seems to acting awkward so i posted comments on next gen support on wp.org. Support says the problem might be with my theme using an old jquery. Any ideas how to fix this?

  5. This WordPress theme is great and specially because of it is free. I love the color. It is so elegant. Designed with Bootstrap , will give us the flexibility of using it in low resolution. Thanks for sharing with us this free magazine style theme
