This section allows you to highlight upto five of your standout blog posts. This feature is designed to adapt dynamically, ensuring an optimal layout based on the number of posts you choose to feature.

Whether you have one compelling story or two, or three, or five, this section will adjust accordingly to display your content in the most engaging way. If you're featuring a single post, it will take center stage.

Topic list, sections and cards

This feature in Flair helps you to organize and display your content in a clear and user-friendly manner, it's based on tags and two custom design settings from the theme, creating a smooth navigation experience for your readers.

First, you can handpick certain topics (tags) to highlight, then a second setting, lets you choose the layout for these featured tags. You can display them as a simple list of links for a minimalist and clean look and easy navigation, or as individual topic sections with 3 posts per topic and a link to the tag page, finally you the third option is to display them in a scrollable section as cards.

Post feed layout

You control how your blog posts are displayed. You can choose between a list layout or a grid layout, each offering its unique advantages.

The grid layout offers a more modern, visual approach. It presents your posts in a grid-like format, which works great for visually-focused content. This layout can make your blog look more dynamic and engaging, as it also includes the feature image.

The list layout is a traditional, linear arrangement of your posts. This is ideal if you want to provide a quick overview of posts at a glance or if you prefer a straightforward, minimal look.

Archive page

The Archive page is designed to make your past articles easily accessible to your audience, basically serving as a library of your content. This page uses the list layout to show your posts making it easy to navigate through the articles and boosting the discoverability of your older posts.

Typography

Typography plays a crucial role in defining your blog's aesthetic and readability, and Flair offers custom settings for both headings and body fonts, allowing you to tailor the look and feel of your text content to align with your brand's style.

The theme offers several options for both, giving you complete control over your blog's typography.

Light and dark theme

You can set the default color scheme to either a light theme, which offers a clean and minimalist look, or a dark theme, which provides a modern and sophisticated aesthetic. If you want to leave it up to the user's system settings, you can choose the 'system' option.

In addition to setting the default color scheme, Flair also provides a user-friendly toggle for your viewers. This allows them to switch between the light and dark themes based on their personal preference or viewing comfort.
