Hey, Ben here!
Thanks for checking out the demo site for Challenger.
Challenger is a modern blogging theme that puts the visitor’s attention on your content so you can scale your audience and build a profitable blog.
You’ll find that Challenger is fast, clean, and mobile-friendly. Afterall, the most important aspect of the blog is that visitors can easily load the site and read it, regardless of what device they’re using. A lot of attention went into readability in particular.
Challenger keeps the “characters per line” below 75 which is optimum for reading. The typography is carefully set using a modular scale for precise font sizing. For instance, the text you’re reading here is 3/4 the size of the heading above which is 3/4 the size of the “About Challenger” title. Challenger uses margins and text line-height to create a consistent vertical rhythm that lends to the beauty of the site.
There are a handful of ways to monetize a blog, but the most popular ways are by building an email list and including ads. This is why Challenger comes with four widgets areas:
- Before Page Content
- Before Post Content
- After Page Content
- After Post Content
This gives you plenty of flexibility to include advertisements and email optin forms.
Challenger also includes a beautiful header where you can include a value proposition and call-to-action for any offer you want. The header is incredibly customizable. You can change all of the text, colors, where it displays, and the background image.
Lastly, Challenger includes quite a few features for customizing your site. Features include:
- Customizable header
- 4 widget areas
- Over 50+ social media icons
- Featured Image size control
- Custom excerpt word count
- Show excerpts or full posts on the homepage
- Change the “read more” button text
- Show/hide controls for 8 site elements
I hope you enjoy browsing the demo and give it a shot on your site. It’s free to install and use forever, so try it out!
