Blaskan

Blaskan is a minimal theme focused on blogging, designed to present your text, photos, and videos in a clean, contemporary interface. Your readers will love that its responsive layout means your content looks attractive—and readable—on devices of all sizes. Sporting crisp typography, three layout options, and post thumbnails—Blaskan is a perfect fit for a journal or photoblog.

Sidebars and Widgets

Blaskan has the option to create various layouts simply by assigning widgets to existing sidebar locations. A one-column layout means there are no widgets are assigned at all; a two-column layout is enabled if you add widgets to the main sidebar; and a three-column layout when you assign widgets to both the primary and secondary sidebars.

A footer widget area is also available—especially useful in the one-column layout.

Custom Menus in Header and Footer

Blaskan comes with two Custom Menu locations: the main navigation area in the header, and a secondary menu in the footer. (Note: the footer menu only supports one level of menu depth.)
