Introducing Design Assets

To make your blogging or business life easier we recently added design assets to our site. We have only premade logotypes in this category for now but soon we will be adding free photos, social media packs and so on. These design assets will be free if you have purchased any of our themes, and if you are not our customer, you can get them for an affordable price.

How to get a free premade logo?

As explained above, if you have purchased one of our WordPress or Ghost themes you can get it for free. All you need to do is drop us an email with the logo version you want, your blog or business name, tagline if you have one and desired color. We will modify it and send back to you as a transparent PNG file which you can add to your site. Also, if you need a print version we can send a vector file as well.

We hope this service will be useful for you.

Stork 1.6.0 — WordPress Theme is Gutenberg Ready

As the release of the new WordPress editor, Gutenberg, is approaching (November 19, 2018) we decided that it’s time to start updating our themes to support Gutenberg features. This week Stork, our most popular free WordPress theme (8000+ active installs), was updated and this is a quick run-down of what’s new in the 1.6.0 version.

New theme features in Stork

Now you can:

  • Insert wide and full-width images
  • Add galleries
  • Create multiple-column layout
  • Split text into multiple columns
  • Change colors of buttons and background blocks

Important to note! To have access to these features you have to install and activate the Gutenberg plugin from WordPress.org.

Demo post with Gutenberg blocks

We’ve created the demo post with the most commonly used Gutenberg blocks. You can see it here -> Stork Gutenberg Demo

Just Good Themes & Ghost – Past, Present And The Future

If you have been following our work for some time you probably noticed that WordPress is not the only platform we work with. We also build themes for Ghost. We have been working with Ghost platform from its first release. The first time we heard about it was from John O’Nolan’s blog post. At that time it was just an idea presented with a clear vision and beautiful design mockup and we really liked it. To support his idea John started hugely successful Kickstarter Campaign and raised $300 000. We also pledged few bucks to support it 🙂 . After that Ghost (thank you Hana and the team for awesome work) was released and from this day we are keeping an eye on Ghost development and building themes for it as well.

How To Change User Profile Image (Avatar) In WordPress

WordPress has an interesting way of handling user profile images – avatars. Let’s see in more details how it works and how to improve it.

In WordPress, profile images are powered by Gravatar, a free service run and supported by Automattic. If you don’t know what Gravatar is, in short, it’s a service that allows you to create a profile and associate avatar images to their email addresses. Once you create a profile on the Gravatar website, your Gravatar image will automatically follow you whenever you participate in any WordPress site. For example, if you leave a comment with an email on a WordPress site, it pulls your avatar image from Gravatar servers and displays it next to your comment. It’s a good service and it helps you be more organized and consistent with your avatars and have unified online identity.
