Poly is a colorful theme featuring a dynamic grid layout, perfect for a virtual scrapbook.
Poly is responsive — from desktop to mobile, and everything in between. The design will adapt to any screen without sacrificing usability, your site’s design, and most importantly, your content.
Post Format Support
Poly supports multiple post formats, including aside, image, video, quote, link, gallery, and audio. Each post format has a special style to distinguish it from the rest.
Want to highlight your visual content? Consider adding a featured image to your posts (using the “standard” post format), and pages. Featured images appear above the content on the blog index and on single pages.
You can view full setup instructions for Poly on the theme documentation page.

Full-width Page Template
In addition to a default page template with sidebar for your widgets, Poly also comes with a full-width page template to put the focus on your content, with no sidebar to help remove distractions and give you extra space to present your ideas.
You can configure a Custom Menu that will display in the header of your site by going to My Site → Menus to create your custom menu, and assign it to the primary menu area.
