Coraline—our update to the older Cutline—is a squeaky-clean theme featuring a custom menu, header, background, and layout. Coraline supports 7 widget areas (up to 3 in the sidebar, four in the footer) and featured images (thumbnails for gallery posts and custom header images for posts and pages). It includes styles for print and the Visual Editor, special styles for posts in “Asides” and “Gallery” categories, support for multiple post formats, and has an optional full-width page template that removes the sidebar.

Multiple Layouts and Color Schemes

Coraline’s six multiple layouts and seven color schemes make personalizing your blog a snap. It’s easy to find a style that suits your site with Coraline.

In addition to white and black, you can enjoy Coraline in blue, brown, pink, purple, and red color schemes.

Custom Header and Background Control

Coraline provides you easy access to header and background customization controls. From Appearance → Customize → Background in your dashboard you can upload a custom background image or change your blog background color.

From Appearance → Customize → Header you can also upload your own header image, change header text color, or remove header text completely. You can also upload custom images for individual posts and pages using Featured Images (image must be at least 990 px wide), which will be displayed in the header area, overriding any global custom header.
