OgreTemplate [Deprecated]

Created On January 14th, 2021 | Last Update February 27th, 2024


A bare bones WordPress Gutenberg theme to provide support for the majority of WordPress functionality and be the foundation for custom-developed child themes. This theme is still undergoing significant development in the coming months, so it is not yet ready for public use.

What to see how it all works? Check out our example website for a basic demonstration.

Requires OgreCore and Advanced Custom Fields Pro to be installed for full functionality. Please contact us if you have any further inquiries.


  1. Install the OgreCore supplementary plugin onto your WordPress site. Follow the instructions included for the best results.
  2. Upload the theme files to the /wp-content/themes/ogretemplate directory.
  3. Upload the desired child theme which supports OgreTemplate to the /wp-content/themes directory.
  4. Activate your child theme on the Appearance -> Themes admin page.


Why isn't everything working as expected?

Make sure that you have installed the OgreTemplate supplementary plugin as well. Also, it is important to know that this theme should only act as a parent to a child theme which achieves your specific WordPress desires.

What is this theme?

If you do know what theme you have downloaded, please contact CleverOgre for more information. This plugin is only developed for a small, private audience.
