<h1 id="al-theia">Alétheia</h1>
<p><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aletheia">Alétheia</a>, greek for <em>truth</em>, is a fully responsive, customizable, translation-ready and extendable child theme for WordPress.

It also features primary and secondary optional colors, intelligent widget areas, which won&#39;t show when no widgets are attached to them, and a lot of easy-to-use options under the hood to activate and extend.
