Sideways – A WordPress Theme With A Fresh Perspective

For our latest theme, we took traditional a blog layout, and turned it on it’s side. The Sideways Theme introduces a new style to the Organic Themes collection. It features a unique, split layout. The featured image appears to the left of the window, while your content displays beautifully on the right.

The split layout of the Sideways Theme feels more like reading a book than viewing a website. So the theme has a strong focus on clean typography and legibility. In addition, Sideways is a smart theme. It analyzes the colors of images and backgrounds, and changes the text color on top accordingly to be legible.

Sideways is fully responsive and optimized for high resolution screens. On mobile devices, the layout snaps into a more traditional, single column layout. Also, the theme is compatible with major plugins. So you get all the bonus functionality provided by plugins like WooCommerce, Jetpack, Gravity Forms and more!

Setting up the theme takes a matter of seconds. In fact, it should be ready to go upon activation. However, if you need to make adjustments, the options can be changed in real-time within the WordPress customizer.

Turn your website on its head with the Sideways Theme! Check it out today!

    • Hi Vivagoal,

      We added the theme to the All Themes package on Feb 27th. Let us know if it’s still not in your account via the contact form, and we’ll manually add it to your account.


  4. Is there a way to pin an alert box or standing post to the top position?

  5. I just installed the Sideways Theme (no entry in the Technical Theme Support Forum?) and I have a problem with the Menu. If I click on the menu, the very left vertical bar, which includes the social media links, is covering the actual menu entrys. What can I do?

    • Hi Norman,

      Thanks for the comment. Send us an email via our contact form, along with a link to your site. If it’s a bug with the theme, we’ll get it fixed and push an update to the theme.


      • Already had contact with Rebecca about the problem. It’s a bug with the theme. Please fix it asap!

        • Hi Norman,

          I apologize for the bug. I looked into your ticket, and checked out your website. It appears you are still using version 1.0 of the theme. The bug you are referring to was fixed on March 18th with version 1.0.2 of the theme. Please update to the latest version 1.0.5 of the theme, and let us know if there are any other issues.


  6. Another problem with the menu: the social media menu is not available on the smartphone. How can I fix this? I only bought the 99$ package for this theme, which is unfortunately not really working for me ..

    • Hi Pedro,

      I believe we’ve addressed this question through email now, but if there’s anything else you can direct questions to our support forums where we’ll be happy to assist you with setting up the social menu. You can find the forums here:
