The Morphology Lite theme is designed for bloggers wanting a clean minimalist style concept while focusing a little more towards image based posts. I would also recommend not to use this theme for menus with excessively long menus (many link) due to the fact the menu is a vertical menu within a column, therefore, short viewing windows may cut off the bottom part of your menu.
Setting up the site title with tagline is generally easy as these two items are already done by default when you perform a clean installation of this theme. However, when it comes to adding a logo, you will need to venture into the Customizer to perform this task. Currently, you have the following options available:
This is avery short tutorial, but if you plan to use a plugin that loads the Bootstrap CSS styles, you may want to disable the theme’s own Bootstrap CSS so that you don’t have duplicate stylesheets loading.

This theme gives you an Image Post format to create beautiful layouts and styles that focus on images. To give you an example, here is a screenshot where the front page is using the Image Post template that displays your image posts in a grid style:
Compared to most themes that offer the “Image Post” format, this theme uses it in a slight different way that separates it from the basic blog display of posts. If you were to setup a basic blog and assign a post to the Image Post format, it won’t show up in the standard “Home” page, but rather it will show up if you went to a category that is setup to host your image posts.
This tutorial will take you through the steps of creating an amazing splash page like the demo website shows:
With Morphology Lite, you get four (4) blog styles that you can choose from, whereas the pro version of Morphology offers 6 (with the addition of a grid and masonry layout). The screenshots below will give you an idea of how they look. Some may be similar, but they still offer some difference between the 4 options.
