Managing Widget Areas

This theme comes with three Widget Areas: Primary, Masthead, and Single Post Sidebar.

Primary Sidebar

The primary sidebar appears on the right side of the content. By default, this sidebar is hidden and is only visible when you add Widgets. Once you add Widgets, this sidebar is visible on every archive template and index page, such as category, tag and author archives. It does not appear alongside single Posts or Pages.

Masthead Sidebar

The masthead sidebar is hidden from the reader’s view until they click the “Open Menu” button in the masthead. The default state of the masthead sidebar includes a navigation menu and search box. This Widget area can be customized to include any Widget, but we strongly recommend you add a Custom Menu, Page Menu, or Category Widget here to ensure readers can navigate your site effectively.

Single Post Sidebar

The single post sidebar appears on every post, however, by default there are no Widgets. Above this sidebar, there are post meta Widgets (Categories, Tags, Multiple Author Information) that are always visible, no matter what changes are made to the single post sidebar. Once you add Widgets to this sidebar, they will appear directly below the tags.

Adding Drop-Caps to a Post

This theme comes packaged with a .dropcap class that can be applied to a paragraph element within the content of your posts. To add it, open any post for editing. Switch to the Text Editor mode, then wrap an existing paragraph of text with a paragraph element like so:

<p class="dropcap">This is a paragraph of text that I want to have a drop-cap for.</p>

Adding a Lead-In Paragraph to a Post

This style makes the entire paragraph slightly larger, and adds an italic style. To add it, switch to the Text Editor mode, then wrap an existing paragraph of text with a paragraph element like so:
