Theme Features

Lytton Lite brings impact and character to your Ghost blog. Just like our Lytton Tumblr theme, a single-channel display and bold landing page deliver visual spirit. Navigation options and a fully responsive layout allow for a smooth user experience.

Blog Header

Looking for a unique and stunning header? Upload a blog cover image or get creative with a .GIF header. Want to keep your look minimal? We’ve selected a rich navy background colour waiting to make your content shine. Lytton Lite also allows you to exchange your text-based blog title for a logo image.

Responsive Layout

A fully responsive layout means Lytton Lite scales to fit any size device and browser.

Header Navigation

Lytton Lite supports header navigation. To enable, simply open your custom-links.hbs file, located within the partials folder, and follow the directions provided in the file comments.

If you would like to add navigation items to your header simply add the class "has-navigation" to the 'header' element in the default.hbs file, and copy and paste the example link below the 'END DISABLED CODE' line (of your navigation.hbs file) and include your desired URL and LABEL.

Disqus Commenting

Lytton Lite supports Disqus commenting. To enable Disqus, locate the disabled code at the bottom of post.hbs” and remove the html comments (<!- - and - ->). Replace "DISQUS SHORTNAME" with your personal Disqus shortname.

Google Analytics

Lytton Lite includes built-in support for Google Analytics tracking.To enable this feature, open your default.hbs file, remove the comments surrounding the Google Analytics script, and replace "TRACKING ID" with your personal Google Analytics tracking code.

Social Media Icons

Lytton Lite supports a slew of social media icons. To enable an icon, open your social-links.hbs file located with the partials folder and follow the directions provided in the file comments.

All social icons are disabled by default. To enable them, simply add the class "has-social-links" to in your default.hbs file, and move your chosen social links below the 'END DISABLED CODE' line (of your social-link.hbs file). Finally, include your desired URL in place of the 4 consecutive hashtags.

We've been making themes since 2009. Truth to be told, we wouldn't still be afloat had we not acknowledged, early on, that each individual customer is important. Exceptional, human customer support matters to us a great deal.

Each one of our themes comes fully backed by our dedicated support team (all of us). We're good people, with real faces, and we like what we do. We've also created a help centre so you can get help at any hour. Send us an email or tweet at us during office hours (we're in PST!).

We're always happy to answer questions. Not sure what theme is best? Looking for a particular feature? Get in touch.
