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).
