Choose your blog style and layout

Changing your blog style is not just for layout, but also for what style of featured image you want.

  1. Top Featured Image Right Sidebar – Top featured image with a right sidebar column
  2. Top Featured Image Left Sidebar – Top featured image with a left sidebar column
  3. Top Featured Image & No Sidebars – Top featured image without the left and right sidebar columns.
  4. Grid Style – This gives you a grid layout that is similar to the masonry. Using this option is best suited if your blog summaries are using similar sized featured images.
  5. Masonry Style – This is a Pinterest style of layout where each post summary is organized in small blocks
