Get to Know Our Latest Theme

One of Ponsonby’s greatest theme highlight is the flexible, individual Front Page, that offers you the possibility to create your own custom Front Page using the Front Page template and custom Front Page widget areas. After you set up your new static Front Page in WordPress, you can add widgets under Appearance / Widgets or via the theme customizer to the flexible Ponsonby Front Page widget areas.

You can add numbers of recent posts using the Ponsonby – Recent Post widget. Here you have the option to choose the number of posts you want to add and filter your posts by category slugs or/and tags. You can also choose to display your posts with Featured Images or without and use the big Featured Image option for the bigger two-column widget areas.

The Classic Blog Layout

Of course you can also use the beautiful, minimal standard blog layout in Ponsonby. This way you can also use Ponsonby as a blog-only theme with the right-aligned blog sidebar.

Your Featured Images can be a real highlight as well, with a maximum image width of 1530 pixels on bigger desktop screens (and 1020px on standard screens). You can also choose to not display Featured Images again on single posts by setting the Theme option under Appearance / Customize / Theme.

Further Theme Highlights

Ponsonby’s elegant, open Front Page with lots of white space and flexible content areas is especially beautiful. You can also add additional widgets to the three-column Footer widget area and add your own Header slogan text in the Theme options. Next to the Header slogan you can also add an additional top menu navigation (see Header Top menu under Appearance / Menus).

Of course you can also further customize Ponsonby under Appearance / Customize and change your theme colors, upload your own logo image (with a max. width of 280 pixels), fix-position your main menu or hide the search form in the main menu.

    I love this theme and want to purchase it right now. I have one question with regards to adds… I know they suck, but I magazine needs them. Could I use some of the widget areas for that? also, I am assuming this is retina ready and mobile friendly? I hate using jetpackโ€™s feature….

    • Hi Clarice,
      please excuse my super late reply to your question. I’m so happy that you like our new Ponsonby theme. Yes, you could use any of the widget areas on the Front Page as well as the blog sidebar or/and the footer widget areas to include ads. You can use one of the available ad plugins like Adrotate (any that offers a ad widget is great).
      Yes, Ponsonby is retina- and mobile-optimized :)
      Best, Ellen

  2. That url is my test site – http://www.ledesma.co/2014/12/10/cuba-diary-2/ and I noticed that on the blog post page there are no links to the before and after post.

    Are you planning on updating this?

    Thanks,
    JL

    • Hi JL,
      on single posts the links to the next/previous post appear at the left side of the screen and are fixed-positioned. This will appear only on bigger desktops, otherwise the links are at the bottom of each post.
      Best, Ellen

  3. I lovelovelove ponsonby and I want to buy it, but there is one thing that concerns me: namely, the lack of “read more” button/sign under posts on the main side and everywhere (eg., when I click any category, there is a list of posts, but it ends with unclickable “…” instead of “read more”). I think this may be distracting and confusing to the reader, because one reads the beginning of the text and wants to read more because it is interesting, but he or she can’t click the beginning (only the title and the picture works as a link) and the “read more” button is not there, either. Is there any possibility to add the “read more” thing in this theme?

    I also would like to ask if it is possible in customize-options to remove the “by someone” (like, “by Ellen”) widget with description of the author from under every post (I am very bad at writing “about me” stuff and this would be a huge (oh really huge) disaster if everyone would have to read this under every post)

  4. Hi Ellen,

    Very nice job! Iยดm seriously considering to purchase it.

    I would like to ask you a couple of questions about the Header area.

    1. Is it possible to have the Header floating? (I mean, that if I scroll down it will be always visible)
    2. Is it possible to edit the Header height? In case I would like to increase or reduce the white area.

    Thanks in advance!
    Francesco
