Navigation Settings

Navigation Settings

The navigation comes with two different layouts. It can be centered with the logo stacked above the navbar. Alternatively the logo and navigation can be displayed in a single row. Additionally, you can apply a sticky navigation, so it remains at the top of the viewport when scrolling.
Article Style

Article Style

Chester theme comes with an optional alternative blog layout. It displays the featured image and the article content side by side with a special styling for the create date. The default blog layout is also still available.

Sidepanel Position

Sidepanel Position

Sometimes you want to have content handy at all times. That's why we've added the Sidepanel position to this theme.

A button that remains fixed on the left side of the browser window toggles any content that is published inside this position, so it will slide into view.

Widgetkit

Chester Theme features Widgetkit 2, our content creator toolkit. In addition to the default widgets we also created four custom plugins which perfectly fit the theme's overall styling: a special Slider, Popover and two Switcher widgets.

Slider Chester

Slider Chester

This custom Slider provides a special layout. The active item will always be centered and has plenty of space to its adjacent items, so that they appear cut off by the browser window. This results in an elegant and trendy tripartite setup.
Popover Chester

Popover Chester

The Popover Chester widget comes with a custom toggle icon and alignment options.

Available Alignments
Left Top, Right Top, Left, Right, Left Bottom, Right Bottom
Switcher Chester

Switcher Chester

The Switcher Chester makes particular use of the thumbnav. You can display the item's title under its thumbnail. We recommend placing the content and thumbnav side by side and use a second image for the thumbnail as seen on the frontpage.

100%, 90%, 85%, 80%, 75%, 66%
