It’s been a long time coming and things are quite a bit different here now, but I would like to introduce you to The Columnist 2.0 — slightly redesigned, completely rebuilt and lots of new features and functionality.
Starting with the design inspiration, The Columnist 2.0 maintains the original aesthetic with clean grid structures and neat typography. You will notice a few more bespoke text styles such as blockquotes, heading styles, sidenotes and more — giving you the power to layout your posts right from the post-editor. You can read more about text styles here.
Along with a wide range of new styles comes a completely refactored set of templates and stylesheets — allowing for more control over your theme. This version includes a refined set of modern, cross-browser techniques — including CSS columns, HTML5 markup as well as CSS flexbox for content layout.
