Choose your blog layout for Typit

With this theme, you get up to 2 blog styled layouts (4 on the Pro version). If you are not aware of this yet, Typit let’s you setup a blog where you don’t have to use featured images if you decide to keep your blog articles strictly text based.

As for featured images, the widest image when using the “Large” blog layout, should be 1010 pixels in width. If you decide to use the thumbnail cropping settings, this will be done for you as you upload images, but you will want to make sure the image you upload is equal to or larger than 1010 pixels in width.

Choose Excerpts for Your Blog Summaries

You get an option to choose excerpts for your blog post summaries. Excerpts will stay consistent to whatever number of words you set so that it keeps your blog home page looking nice and consistent. Please note that using excerpts, all formatting such as bold text, underline, images, etc., will all be stripped out from the blog home view, but they will show when you view the full post.

IMPORTANT: This option is only available for the default blog layout as the others only use “excerpts”.

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options >> Blog Settings
  2. Look for the “Blog Summary Type” setting and check the box of your choice, for example “Post Excerpt“. Please note this is only for the default blog layout option.
  3. Look for the “Excerpt Length” setting and enter in how many words you want your excerpts to show.
