TheStyle is a bold and beautiful grid-based theme that displays your recent posts in animated, fluid-width layout. The design’s simple structure and photo-driven visualization of posts makes your website fun and easy to browse. TheStyle is a great theme for bloggers or news publications that want to showcase their most recent articles within a stylish design.
A Unique & Animated Design
TheStyle offers a unique and stunning design that is sure to wow your visitors. Subtle animations make browsing your website fun, and the simple grid-based layout makes browsing your website intuitive. Furthermore, your website will always look good because TheStyle’s grid adjusts to the size of your screen automatically.
Three Widget-Ready Areas
TheStyle includes three places where you can add widgets: the footer, the index sidebar and the post-page sidebar. This allows you to include widgets on posts, but leave your homepage widget-free to give room for a beautiful, full-width display of your latest posts.
TheStyle supports core color options within the Theme Customizer, allowing you to easily adjust elements such as your background color and header text color.
Creating “Large Thumbnail” Posts
The large thumbnail featured posts on the top of the homepage are “sticky posts.” When you make a post “sticky,” it gets displayed on the top of the homepage in an increased size. This is a great way to feature your favorite articles. To make a post a sticky post, click Posts > All Posts link within your WordPress Dashboard and locate the post that you would like to feature. Click the “Quick Edit” button for your desired post and check the “Make this post sticky” box and then click “Update.”
Customizing Theme Colors
The background and site title colors can be customized using the Theme Customizer. To access the customizer, click the Appearances > Customize link in your WordPress Dashboard. Click the “Colors” tab and then click the section you would like to edit to change its color.
Adding Widgets To Sidebars
TheStyle comes with three different widget-ready areas. To add widgets to these areas, click the Appearances > Widgets link in your WordPress Dashboard. You can then drag widgets into any of the three sections on the right side of the page.
Main Sidebar – The main sidebar is displayed on your homepage and category pages. This section is left empty in the demo to allow for a full width display of posts, but you can also fill it with widgets if you want to.
Single Post/Page Sidebar – This sidebar is used for all posts/pages, but is not displayed on the homepage or index pages.
Footer – The footer widgets are displayed on the bottom of every part of your website.
Adding Thumbnails Images To Posts
Images can be added to your posts using the “Featured Image” function. These images are used as the thumbnail image on your homepage and category pages. To add a featured image to your post, click the “Set featured image” link located within the “Featured Image” box when writing/editing your post. Upload a new image, or selected one from your media gallery and click the “Set Featured Image” button to set the image as your featured image.
Changing Your Website’s Title
The title shown at the top of all pages is the title of your WordPress website. This can be adjusted via the Settings > General tab in your WordPress Dashboard.
