Sunspot

A sharp theme with subtle grid lines and sun-splashed accents, Sunspot is a great all-purpose blogging canvas, especially for those who prefer a dark color scheme. It also features a layout that adapts gracefully to fit smaller screens, ensuring that your readers can enjoy your content on a variety of devices.

The Sunspot Theme

Front Page Layout Options

How would you like to display the posts on your front page? You can stick with the traditional one column layout, which displays your posts one after the other, with full post content. Or you can choose a two-column display, which arranges your posts into a grid-like structure with post excerpts and Featured Image thumbnails.

Head over to Appearance β†’ Theme Options to make a selection for your front page layout.

Widget Areas

The Sunspot theme offers two optional widget areas, one in the left column and one in the right column. To activate either area, just drag widgets to them in Appearance β†’ Theme Options.

Custom Header and Background

Upload a small custom header image β€” 257 pixels wide by 157 pixels tall β€”to serve as a personal logo in the top left corner, and complete the look with a custom background color or image.
