Linen is a clean and flexible magazine style theme with some exciting personalization and customization options. Features include: custom typography (fonts), custom background image or colors, featured post slider, and built in featured images.
Linen gives you complete control over your typography. Choose from seven accent fonts and eight different body fonts from the convenience of your Theme Options panel. Mix and match until you find the perfect style for your blog.
Combine a custom background with your custom fonts and and match your blog to your brand or personality. You have the option to choose a background color or set a custom background image.
Featured Post Slider
Showcase top posts on your front page by enabling the featured post slider under Appearance → Theme Options. From there you can turn on autostart, change the start delay, and adjust the slide animation speed.
To add a post to the slider, simply mark it as Sticky in the post’s visibility settings.
Linen makes it easy to add photos to your posts. When you add a featured image three different thumbnails will automatically be displayed across your theme: a medium-sized version (300 pixels by 225 pixels) is displayed at the top of your posts, a small version (95 pixels by 95 pixels) is used on your “index” pages, and a large version is shown in the featured post slider (652 pixels by 300 pixels) if that post is marked as Sticky.
Theme Options: Logo, Layout, and Subscribe Links
Linen’s Theme Options menu give you the flexibility to make all kind of design changes to your theme. With the click of a button you can easily: remove the footer or sidebar across your entire site, add a custom logo image, or add handcrafted icons to your sidebar (RSS, Flickr, Twitter, and Facebook).
Custom Page Templates
Linen includes two different page templates to further customize your site. The full-width page template allows you more space by hiding the sidebar, and the left-sidebar layout lets you quickly switch up the styling of a specific page.
