Emphasize comes with four(4) blog styles, each with a different layout containing either a left, right, or for those who don’t like left and right sidebars, you get that choice so that you can simply focus just on the post itself without distractions. Please note that whatever you select here will also affect other blog based pages like archives, categories, that will adopt your choice of style.
Style 1 – Standard Right Sidebar
This is the standard layout and style that is most common.
Style 2 – Standard Left Sidebar
Just like the first one, this uses the left sidebar layout.
Style 3 – Centered with no Left or Right Sidebar
For absolute focus on content only, this one offers a centered post summary with no left or right sidebars. You can have any size of featured image you want.
Style 4 – Left with no Left or Right Sidebars
Again, for focus on content only, this one puts the featured image to the left of the post summary with no left or right sidebars. I would recommend keeping your featured images consistent in size (more so for width) so that each post summary lines up vertically. The featured image size you see in the screenshot below is 400 pixels in width.
