Fifth Avenue is as posh and polished as its Manhattan namesake. Our first full-frill grid theme, Fifth Ave. collects your content into an infinitely-scrolling empire of high-res tiles. Featuring post-highlighting, a custom audio player, and profile-panel image feeds, Fifth Ave. is a dazzling way to display everything in one beautiful place.
Feature Post Highlighting
What good is a grid theme if the tiles are a boring sheet of sameness? Using tags, you can feature your posts in one of two standout sizes, foregrounding content as you see fit:
Small (default): 216×180 px. All posts unless tagged otherwise will be this size.
Medium: 452×380 px. Tag with “medium.”
Large: 688×580 px. Tag with “large.”
The “uber-tidy” option. Assigning a fixed height to each post will eliminate nearly all empty spaces between post tiles, tightening the grid and allowing more posts to be visible.
Additionally, Fifth Avenue will still preserve image ratios when fixed heights are enabled. For instance, when tagging a portrait-oriented photo or photoset “medium” or “large,” the height will auto-adjust to preserve the image’s dimensions (expanding into an additional row, height-wise).
Custom Flash Music Player
Fifth Avenue also features our brand-new fixed music player, which allows audio posts to keep playing even after a reader has closed the overlay page. When the “Open Audio Player” button is clicked from an audio post’s overlay page, a small flash player pops up in the lower righthand side of the screen, allowing your readers to continue browsing through your blog while they listen.
Profile Panel and Feeds
Fifth Avenue’s profile information is displayed in an easily-accessible dropdown panel beneath the title. The Instagram and Flickr feeds both setup painlessly in the customization screen, using your Flickr ID and your Instagram Access Token.
Fifth Avenue feature a togglable Author info box (displayed on posts’ overlay and permalink pages) for group blogs.
Fifth Avenue’s profile picture or avatar is, of course, customizable. The optimal image size is 166×166 px.
Fifth Avenue’s social media links are displayed on the right side of the profile panel when expanded, and includes: Behance, Delicious, DeviantArt, Digg, Dribbble, Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, GitHub, Google+, Instagreat, LastFM, LinkedIN, Myspace, Pinboard, Pinterest, Rdio, Skype, Spotify, Squarespace, Stumbleupon, Svpply, Twitter, Typekit, Vimeo, and YouTube. Additionally, the header over the social media links section is customizable.
