Blink is an ideal theme for people who tell stories. Blink‘s most powerful asset is its simplicity, letting you focus on what really matters: your content.
With Blink, your blog will look stunning right out of the box, no complicated setup necessary. If you’d like to tweak its appearance, the theme’s settings are accessible via Appearance → Customize → Theme Options.
Adding a Custom Logo
Exploring the Theme Options
Menu Button Label
When your blog is viewed from a mobile device, the navigation is opened with a “Menu” button. This option lets you customize the default “Menu” label to something else.
Blink lets you change the layout of your homepage, category, and archives pages. Just select the desired layout structure and preview its effect in the Customizer.
Hide Author Info Box on Single Posts
At the end of each post, Blink adds an author bio box that contains information about the author of the post, as the screenshot below shows. You can choose to disable this feature by checking the box labeled “Hide Author info box on posts.”
The data for the author’s bio is derived from Users → My Profile → About You.
Hide Post Navigation on Single Posts
By default, Blink displays “Next / Previous Post” navigation at the bottom of each post, like in the screenshot below. If you wish to disable this functionality, just check this box.
Sticky Post Label
This option allows you to customize the label for the Sticky Post. On the demo we have used the word “Featured.”
You have the option to add some text to your footer, for example a copyright notice.
Using Featured Images
The most important image in your post is the Featured Image: the full-browser image that serves as your post’s cover. It’s the first thing your readers will see, so it should convey the message of your post.
Featured Images will also show on your homepage and blog category pages, so make sure you have selected one for all your posts. The Featured Image scales to fit the browser window, so there are no standard dimensions for it. We recommend images sized around 1600 x 1600 pixels.
Adding Widgets to the Footer
To add widgets to the footer, go to Appearance → Customize → Widgets and drag any of the available widgets to the Footer Widgets areas.
Blink comes with some CSS classes you can add to the Text/HTML Editor. These classes are optional, and add a nice touch to your content.
You can stylize an introductory text for your post or page by wrapping the desired text in a span tag with the class: “intro”.
<span class="intro">This is your introduction text.</span>
Give visual emphasis to the first character of your post by wrapping it in a span tag with the class: “dropcap”.
<span class="dropcap">D</span>rop caps are awesome.
You can split a piece of content in two columns by wrapping a
div element with the class of “twocolumn” around it:
This content will split in two columns
