If you are looking for a theme that is clean and especially typographically pleasing, look no further — an elegant, minimalist theme, Chateau sports a classic look. Plus, under the surface, it’s packed with cool features to further customize your blog.
Light or Dark Color Schemes
Make Chateau your own with your choice of light or dark color schemes with one click in Appearance → Theme Options.
Custom Accent Color
With the Chateau theme you can set your own accent color for links in Appearance → Theme Options.
Chateau offers three default layouts for your blog, again in Appearance → Theme Options. You can choose a layout with a right or left sidebar, or a full-width layout.
Multiple Archive Styles
You can choose to display your post archives in either “detail” or “concise” format. The “detail” format is the standard blog layout. The “concise” format displays only the title and the first 20 words from each post so that your readers may view your posts at a glance:
Chateau includes special styles for Aside, Image, Video, Quote, Link, and Gallery Post Formats. For the most recent post on the homepage and archive pages (with the “detail” archive style enabled), Asides get a simplified look that seamlessly fits between full-length posts, while Galleries give a peek at the photos that lie within.
Other formats have simplified post meta, and each formatted post includes a notation and a link to the archive for that particular Format above the title.
In addition to its optional sidebar, Chateau has five widget areas in the footer.
You can upload your favorite image as a Custom Header Image to put your stamp on your blog. You can even use a different featured header image for each individual post by setting a Featured Image for each post.
