The Chess is a responsive block theme fully compatible with the WordPress site editor. It will be an appropriate theme for the development of websites for chess clubs, both amateur and professional. Thanks to the modern WordPress features, you will get a nice design that's not overloaded with too much code. You can edit the theme easily, one block at a time until you create your own chess website.

Chess is a two-player strategy board game that originated in India around the 6th century AD. The game is played on an 8x8 checkered board with 16 pieces for each player, including a king, queen, rooks, knights, bishops, and pawns. The objective of the game is to checkmate the opponent's king by placing it under attack in a way that it cannot escape capture. Chess is known for its complexity and depth, as well as its benefits for cognitive development such as improving problem-solving, critical thinking, and memory skills. It is also a popular competitive sport, with international tournaments and a world championship held annually.

Amateur and professional chess clubs can install this theme for their club websites. All you need is WordPress and one optional plugin (Hot Blocks) that's provided and used for the carousel, contact form, and FAQ page.

The inner pages that you can see on our demo can be easily added to your website using either the WordPress patterns that are bundled with the theme or quick-start installation.

100% Compatible with Gutenberg and Site Editor

The Chess theme is developed to work with the WordPress block editor (Gutenberg) and site editor. The newest WordPress features that the Chess theme fully supports allows you to visually define your front page, page templates, archives, posts, etc.

4 Color Styles

Four different color styles are included in this theme. It’s quite simple to change the theme style. From the site editor, go to the Styles tab and select a color style. The changes will be applied automatically throughout the site.

The Hot Blocks Plugin

Besides the plenty of content blocks that are available in WordPress, it's also possible to add customized blocks for specific use cases.

Therefore, we bundled this theme with our Hot Blocks plugin that adds several new blocks. In this theme, we are using the Contact block (for the contact form), the Accordion block (for the FAQ page), and the Carousel block (for the images slideshow).
