An Introduction to Emphasize

Welcome to my introduction to Emphasize, a theme that is built to be scalable from the start! This theme is based on an “easy-to-use” concept that allows more focus on your site’s content without having a steep learning curve that many themes often have. Yes, they look amazing with 100’s of shortcodes, sliders, or even 20 different portfolio layouts, but they are very difficult to learn. With Emphasize, and future themes that I release, simplicity while maintaining core WordPress standards is the key.

Choose your blog style and layout

Emphasize  comes with four(4) blog styles, each with a different layout containing either a left, right, or for those who don’t like left and right sidebars, you get that choice so that you can simply focus just on the post itself without distractions. Please note that whatever you select here will also affect other blog based pages like archives, categories, that will adopt your choice of style.

Setup your logo

When you first install the theme, by default, you will see a text based title and tagline already in place. For some people, this might work for them, but if you decide to use a logo, This theme gives you the ability to upload your own.
