Make a Magical Frontpage
The core magic layout provides a dynamic view of your post previews; users can instantly filter your items according to tag, with smooth animations between the transitions. If simplicity is your preference, then the Static layout keeps the looks, but pulls back on the animations for a more straightforward, accessible site experience that will still turn heads.
Let Users Control the Layout
With the included Layout Switcher, users can instantly switch between a Grid or Row layout at the click on a button; get the style of the grid, or keep things simple with a clearly-defined list of items for easy reading; all enabled with blinding speed thanks to Publii’s efficiency-focused design philosophy.
Customize Your Grid
The grid display includes column options to help you find the view that suits you. Set the number of columns separately for each type of listing page; have four columns on the homepage, two on the author page, and three on the tag page! Give each page its own particular look that makes it easy to distinguish between page types.
Pick Standard, or Masonry Mode
If you like to keep things clean, the standard grid view standardizes post preview cards to keep a uniform image height as defined by you; traditional and quick to read. For a more modern take, set it to ‘auto’ and have the preview images display at their full height, bringing a more contemporary masonry design to your site.
Multiple Color Options, or Go Dark
Subtle color combinations add style to your site without going overboard; choose from violet, beige or gray, or take advantage of the included dark mode to add a touch of night to proceedings. Want to give your users the best experience? Enable auto-switching to automatically enable dark-mode according to the users’ settings.
Stay in Touch with a Newsletter
Want to be able to get in touch with your regular visitors? The Persona theme includes a dedicated section for your newsletter sign-up form with Mailchimp integration or your own custom code, allowing you to build a relationship with your users and let them know of any exciting news.
Got a lot of posts? You could let users click through each page one-by-one, or you could enable infinite scrolling and let your site dynamically load new posts as the user scrolls down. And if you’re worried about loading too much at once, you can include a toggle to allow users to choose when to start loading more posts or use standard, numbered pagination.
Free and Premium Versions to Meet Your Site Needs
For the first time, this premium Publii theme also includes a free option for users that like the look, but don’t feel like splashing out on the extra features. The free version of this theme lacks some of the more dynamic features of the premium versions, such as the magic layout, filters and infinite scroll, but loses none of the delightful design elements.
