Semper Fi is free to use open source WordPress theme that I develop in my spare time. I’ve created the theme from scratch, developed all of the features, and maintain it free of charge. However, I offer a premium plugin specifically designed to expanded upon the basic features of Semper Fi. This theme takes on average about 5-6 hours a week just to maintain. With the help of your support, I can continue to grow and expand the capabilities of this WordPress theme, Semper Fi.

Version 29 of Semper Fi went live on September 7th, 2017. That version introduced a complete overhaul to the theme. Bare with me while I add in all the finishing touches to this page. Last updated 9/11/2017
- Customizer – Semper Fi takes advantage of the WordPress Customizer giving the User the ability to quickly and easily modify the theme to their needs.
- Responsive Design – The code was written from the ground up to be completely responsive in design, starting with the font size to optimize the the letters per line, to the fine touches of CSS3 Grid to ensure the best User experience.
- Microdata Schema – SEO optimization is everything to a website, but one thing a SEO WordPress plugin do is add in Microdata. I’ve followed the Google Structured data requirements to enhance the SEO of each and every page with the information that search engines need to understand the post or page.
