Espresso is a responsive, content-centric theme that lets you choose between two charming layouts. Go with a traditional post stream for your writing-based blog, or go grid-style for your photography blog. A fixed sidebar on the right keeps widgets, menus, and social links at the ready for visitors.
Grid View/Post Navigation
Readers can opt to browse your posts in a sophisticated grid rather than a list – a great option for portfolio sites with lots of Featured Images – by clicking on the grid icon in the site navigation.
You can also use the navigation arrows on either side of the grid icon to scroll to the next or previous post.
Espresso takes advantage of the Portfolio feature on WordPress.com, offering unique layouts and organization for your portfolio projects. Learn how to enable and set up this exciting Portfolio feature.
Brand your site and make it yours by including your business’ logo. Navigate to Customize → Site Identity and upload a logo image in the space provided.
Espresso looks its best when you assign a Featured Image to your posts. Featured Images appear above the post title, or as a background to the post information in grid view. We recommend adding images that are a minimum of 1440 px wide by 550 px tall to get a clear, crisp picture.
