Purify Theme has just received it’s biggest update yet. Here’s what’s in store:
Custom fonts including Typekit
Purify theme now lets you choose your own custom fonts for titles, post text and secondary text (the text used for the sidebar / meta data etc). If you want to get really fancy you can even include integration with Typekit.
If you find using custom fonts may prove difficult with the font size being quite small, there’s no need to fear, as you can also choose to use a large font size for titles, posts and secondary text as well. If you’re really crazy you can even choose to have an ‘extra large’ font size for titles.
Homepage posts can now be 400px wide
Purify’s default post size on index pages is 250px. However with this update you can now choose to have your posts display at 400px wide.
Option to have a wider sidebar at 300px wide
Got more tags than Macy’s? Then maybe you’ll be glad to hear you can choose to have your sidebar display at 300px wide. This gives more room for tags and also displays navigation links horizontally instead of vertically. As well as that, your own sidebar logo will display bigger too.
Option for larger social icons
Purify theme’s default icons were designed so that multiple would fit in the small sidebar. However if you’re only using a few social icons, or want to use the larger sidebar option, then it’s obvious that you’ll also want to have larger social icons!
Copyright in sidebar
Sidebar now displays a copyright with a label you can customize yourself.
Whilst the main theme of this update has been “big”. A lot of smaller enhancements have been made such as CSS3 transitions for all transparent link hovers, support for Clicky stats and more customization options.
Special thanks to @marxamus and @adnrw for helping out with testing and update ideas.
