How the lead story works

This is the lead story. It´s the first thing that catches your visitors eyes. Always the most recent post from the “News” category (or whatever category you define) will be displayed.

You can add an image like this one by just using the standard WP uploader in the write post panel. Once you have attached the image to the post it will be automaticallly placed and croped to the pre-defined dimensions. There is nothing else you need to do. Only the excerpt of the article will be printed here for space reasons. You can also use an optional excerpt like I did here to have more control of the layout if you like to.

About this theme

The first version of this theme back in January 2008 was inspired by the great magazine style themes of Brian Gardner and Darren Hoyt. I took those elements that I liked the most in every theme and combined them together in one single theme. The different page templates are inspired by Brian Gardners "Revolution" theme, other elements are taken from "Mimbo" by Darren Hoyt. The Tabbed section is created by using jQuery ui.tabs. Meanwihle the theme walked through a lot of development and got its own individual face and functions. As of version 9.0 the theme became mobile responsive and works great on any device from desktop, to tablet and smartphone. The Name of the theme was inspired by the famous American jazz sax-player, Branford Marsalis.
