Mystique2 is the second version of the popular WordPress theme Mystique again open source under the GPL v3 licence just like it’s predecessor.

With Mystique2 I completely re-wrote the backend admin panel and added those options that were simply missing in the first version. I released this as a separate product as some of the features people used in v1 have been removed as they don’t fit in with the future plans for the theme (I have a pushed a new version 1.4.8 fixing most of the bugs).

The new Mystique is more powerful, simple and leaner than ever with the following features:

  • Customise the footer without touch the code
  • Fixed width or flexible pages
  • Adjustable the size of the main column on fixed width
  • 4 typography options
  • Custom background colour
  • Add a custom logo
  • Change the background image
