This is a gatsby theme using WordPress as source and allowing to build a standard blog. See the live demo


-This theme uses GraphQL API to source WordPress content. Therefore the source WordPress site must use the WPGraphQL plugin.


To use this theme in your Gatsby sites, follow these instructions:

  1. Install the theme

    npm install --save @alexadark/gatsby-theme-wordpress-blog


    yarn add @alexadark/gatsby-theme-wordpress-blog
