It shouldn’t be so hard to find a grid style theme that I like. Grid theming should be easy. Take my posts. grid them out across the homepage. If they’re an image post, display the damned image. Dont make me use a featured image. Oh, and optimize the damned code so the whole thing loads expediently? This isn’t rocket science. Apparently it is, however. So many themes make doing exactly this, a hurdle. You have to create a dozen or so files, route them all together, and maybe, if you’re lucky, the whole thing…wont display correctly. Its a damned joke.
I’m still not 100% happy with what I’ve got. But its working so far.
