The theme comes with a flexible layout system which allows combining various modes such as grids and sidebars, with menu configurations and Content Builder templates. Check out below for some examples, more in the menu above.


The last WP theme you’ll ever need.

We had a vision of creating a truly multi-purpose theme that would be free for everyone to download and customize. And thus we've built Bento, which combines in it most of the capabilities and features of expensive premium themes - yet comes with an "use-as-you-wish" licence. Explore some of Bento's exciting features on this demo website - or install the theme itself on your own website from the official repository and see for yourself.
Visual content builder
Using the bundled content composer, you can create unlimited page layouts from a variety of pre-made blocks, such as text, images, videos, galleries, sliders, widgets and many other parts.
Unlimited color combinations
You can customize every single element of the website by setting any color from the theme's Options panel. No more color schemes - create unique color combinations that fit your needs.
e-Commerce features
Install the free WooCommerce plugin and start selling on your website right away - the Bento theme is fully compatible with this widely used WordPress ecommerce system out-of-the-box.
Flexible page templates
Apart from the classic pages, you can create cool grid layouts with Bento, including masonry, row-aligned and column-aligned grids. Check out the "Templates" menu section above for more details.
One-page functionality included
If you want to present all information on a single page, you can configure the menu items to scroll to a specific location within the same page rather than loading new pages when visitors navigate.
Load posts on same page
Any page, including the native WP blog, can be configured to display additional posts/products without reloading, which can help improve user experience by reducing wait times and reloads.
Wide and boxed layout
The theme provides an option to switch from the default wide layout to a boxed one, whereby the content area has a fixed (and adjustable) width, with colored background showing on both sides.
Bento can be easily used with any localization or multilingual plugin out of the box since all fixed text strings inside the theme have been properly wrapped into WordPress translation functions.
Regular updates and fixes
We are constantly working to make Bento even better - more diverse, feature-rich, and easy to use. Your feedback matters, and we appreciate every single bug report and/or feature request.
