"CustoMaterial" is licensed under the GNU General Public License, version 2


  • Full Bootstrap integration with all of Bootstraps Components modified to suit the Material Design principles.
  • Highly performant. "CustoMaterial" ranks with around 95% on GTMetrix out-of-the-box.
  • Nine fully configurable Widget-Areas:
    • Hero Slider
    • Static Hero
    • Above OffCanvas Navigation
    • Below OffCanvas Navigation
    • Sidebar
    • Four Footer Widget Areads
  • Fully customizable. From background image, topbar and countless others to every color setting with more than 120 Configuration options already included.
  • Custom Post-Type "Portfolio" with custom metaboxes and embedded OWL2-Slider
  • Semantically correct HTML5 and crossbrowser-compatibel CSS3.
  • SEO-optimized code.
  • Fully accessible. Passes almost every "A" rule of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines. (Yet to be optimized though..)
  • WooCommerce-ready.
  • Translation ready. German translation will follow soon.
  • RTL-ready.
  • Jetpack-ready.

ToDo - Soon come..

  • German translation to be added.
  • Final WCAG 2.0 optimization to fulfill AA-Level.
  • Yoast-Seo support. Also supports Yoast-breadcrumbs.
  • Custom Post Templates for Portfolio etc.
  • Custom Metaboxes for certain Post-Types.
  • Currently the GULP process is suboptimal. Needs urgent improvement!


Full Credit goes to Holger Könemann who built a solid foundation to "CustoMaterial" with his Wordpress Starter Theme "Understrap". Understrap integrates Automattics _s with Bootstrap, SCSS and has an optimized Workflow integrating Bower and GULP.

Credits go to the following projects and persons:


  • Download the "CustoMaterial" Package
  • Upload it into your WordPress installation subfolder here: /wp-content/themes/
  • Login to your WordPress backend
  • Go to Appearance -> Themes
  • Activate the "CustoMaterial" theme
  • Go to the Customizer to customize "CustoMaterial" to your liking

How to use the built-in Widget Slider and the Static Hero?

The Frontpage Slider is Widget driven. Simply add more than one Widget to widget position "Hero Slider".

  • Click on Appearance -> Widgets
  • Add two or more widgets of any kind to widget area "Hero Slider"
  • Thats all, folks..

If you just want a static Hero header or want a second below the Hero Slider, you should add a Widget to the "Static Hero" Widget.
