I have been playing around with the layout of the site as I have not found a theme that I am in love with as of yet. Some are close but not quite and though I am tempted to pay the $30 U.S. a year to have full customization but may not be there quite yet.
A few features I would like:
– I don’t want the entire post up in a big long scroll fest as I do write some long posts. I prefer the first few lines or ideally an abstract that the reader clicks on. This is for two reasons first I like the look and feel and second then my page stats show me what people are viewing specifically.
– Scrolling down is not required I like the multiple tiles but many of these themes show the picture and though I do use some pictures most of the time I use none so this makes the theme seem bland
– A nice clean reasonably large but not huge font.
I am a firm believer that the theme should showcase the content of the blog and not be focus of the blog and this is where I am having some issues. A theme that shows as many possible options of what to read as possible then when the reader clicks on the post it is displayed in a clear easy to read format.
Anyone out there have any suggestions?
How easy/hard is the full customization feature?
I thank you in advance for any advice you may offer.
