Format is a minimal WordPress theme with a bit of a twist. Format concentrates on your latest post, letting your other posts take less emphasis in our unique blog stream format. Don’t worry though, you can still show your posts the traditional way, if you want to.
We’ve kept things simple, but Format is still powerful. You can disable the sidebar completely or keep it in toggle mode, you can also choose to overlap the header on your lead image, where we dynamically change the colour of your navigation and logo dependent on your image. Have a look in the Theme Customizer in the Demo to see all of this in action (Just choose Layout Settings).
You can control colours for the entire theme using the beautifully simple WordPress Theme Customizer.
Advanced Font Options
You can add any font from Google Web Fonts, Typekit or Adobe Web fonts using our custom controls in the WordPress Theme Customizer. You’ll need a Typekit account and also a subscription dependent on font usage.
You can even control all of the font sizes through the Theme Customizer.
