Aesop Story Engine Compatible

Check out our Aesop Story post to see how it looks with Lore Styling.

Homepage Hero Video or Image

You can upload a background video (.webm and.mp4) or background image, logo/image, hero title and subtitle on the homepage of Lore to really make an impact.

The Grid

Separate Grid Control over your homepage, Categories archives and Author archives.

Control your featured images

Featured images are supposed to be about showcasing your blog post and pages. So we’ve packed Lore with a plethora of controls for your featured image.

Here are just a few examples..

Want a global style? No problem, you can set your defaults straight from the Theme Customizer and overwrite them per post and page.

Ambient Video on your posts

Want to utilise that featured image space for an ambient video – easy just choose the Video Post format and add your .webm and .mp4 ambient video files. Full height image options still work with ambient video so you can have a full size video too!

Some of the finer details

Standard Menu / Hidden Menu & Fixed Header

You can have a standard menu on the desktop size of Lore or you can use the hide/show toggle to give the blog more minimalism. Want a non-fixed header too, with a click on a checkbox, it’s done.

Typekit Support

Using the wonderful free Typekit plugin for WordPress you can add any Typekit fonts, just like we have on this demo. You do need a Typekit account to do this.

Google Fonts Support

Using the fantastic and free Google Fonts plugin for WordPress you can add any Google fonts. We’ve even integrated a bespoke options panel to get you up and running quickly.

Instagram Support

Using the insanely great WP Instagram plugin for WordPress you can add your instagram feed to the foot of your blog, just above the footer copyright bar. We even match the gutter you’ve chosen in your grid to make sure everything looks just right.

Dropcaps for your posts and pages

Everybody loves a dropcap, you can turn these on for pages and for posts from the Theme Customizer.
