Layout Options

Gridiculous Pro gives you the option to select either one or two sidebars, and place them on the left, right or separated. Every post and page even comes with a full width option to remove the sidebars completely. Check out the Customizer to play with the layout options.

Improved Typography with Google Fonts

For a long time, websites had to use boring old web safe fonts for all their text. Thanks to modern browsers and resources like Google Fonts, you can now rely on beautiful fonts to improve your websites typography to make it easier on the eyes. Gridiculous Pro uses Open Sans for all text, Lato for all headers and Quattrocento for the site name.

Post Formats & Sticky Posts

Not all content is the same, that’s why Post Formats and Sticky Posts each have a unique look and feel. Check out the gallery below for some examples.

Social Menu

You can display your posts on the home/archive pages either with their full content or just a teaser excerpt by selecting one of the two options. If you select the teaser excerpt, then the featured image will be used as a thumbnail next to each post.
