Manifest

When we think about the very basic fundamentals of blogging and expressing ideas we find the clear practice of writing. Today we are launching a new theme which tries to reflect precisely on that. Manifest is a wonderful theme for writers.

This is a theme that presents your creations in an elegant and powerfully clean way, offering your readers an intimate and direct experience with your thoughts.

Post Formats

With content being the clear focus in Manifest, you can create different types of posts by choosing appropriate Post Formats. You can create image posts, link posts, galleries, asides, videos, and quotes, and Manifest will present them in the same neat, clutter free way it shows your regular text posts.

A Link Post would grab the first link it finds in your content and use it as the anchor for your post title. It also adds an arrow at the end.

Image Post grabs the first attachment in a post and displays it at the top. It will also display any text you add to the content as a note below the image.

The Gallery post will only show just galleries on your index page — but show your full Gallery post content at the permalink page for the post.

The Video, Quote, and Aside post formats display minimal post meta. All formatted posts in Manifest include a notation and a link to the archive for that particular format alongside the post meta.

Header Image

Manifest has header image support. You can upload an image which will work as a subtle header picture to bring a personal touch to the design, if you want.

Widgets

Even though Manifest doesn’t display widgets by default, it has support for two widget areas in the footer. To activate those, you just need to drag your widgets there.

Quick Specs (all measurements in pixels):

  1. The main column width is 500.
  2. The header image is 500 by 160.
