We threw out the rulebook when designing Shelf. Instead of a traditional vertical layout, Shelf scrolls horizontally, making it fun and easy for your audience to enjoy your website in a unique way. Shelf was designed specifically for touch devices. Swiping through the layout feels perfectly natural on a tablet or phone. The included keyboard navigation also makes traditional web browsing easy.
Add some style.
Make it your own.
Personalizing your blog should be fun. We’ve leveraged the built-in WordPress customizer, so adding your own background image or color is simple. We’ve also included options to hide what you don’t need, like blog title, tagline, and background title. Combine these options with a custom background to get your blog looking just right.
Watch. Listen. Read.
Share with your audience.
Shelf makes it simple to post any type of content: videos, quotes, links, images, and audio files. Each format has a unique style, tailored to the media you post. This makes for an extremely streamlined and enjoyable reading experience. Your fans will have a blast watching video, listening to music, and reading articles on your website.
