Selecting the perfect theme

Finding that perfect theme is hard.

With these example posts and pages, we try to showcase how different blocks can work together with the theme that you are previewing.

When searching for a theme, you can use keywords and select different options in the feature filter:

Most themes has color options built in, so if you find a theme that you like, that is not in the color that you prefer, why not give it a test run before you decide?

Travel Diary -Berlin

Great Adventures in Berlin

This year, our family vacation went to Berlin, a city with an interesting and complex history.

We had picnics in the grass during the hot days, and we watched the thunder strike right before us when the summer rain came pouring down.
Someone even brought a midsummer pole – to keep traditions alive even when we were away from home.

We walked up and down Kurfürstendamm until our feet hurt, looking at all the different shops. We sampled some of the more unusual local cuisine and many of the local pilsners.
We even had time to see the pandas at the Zoo, and the incredible view from the TV Tower.

For three days, we shared thoughts, ideas and laughs.

And then we danced, all night long.

The Road Not Taken

Robert Frost


  Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
  And sorry I could not travel both          (_/)
  And be one traveler, long I stood         (='.'=)
  And looked down one as far as I could     (")_(")
  To where it bent in the undergrowth;

  Then took the other, as just as fair,
  And having perhaps the better claim,          |_/|
  Because it was grassy and wanted wear;       / @ @ 
  Though as for that the passing there        ( > º < )
  Had worn them really about the same,         `>>x<<´
                                               /  O  
  And both that morning equally lay
  In leaves no step had trodden black.
  Oh, I kept the first for another day!
  Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
  I doubted if I should ever come back.

  I shall be telling this with a sigh
  Somewhere ages and ages hence:
  Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
  I took the one less traveled by,
  And that has made all the difference.


  and here's a line of some really, really, really, really long text, just to see how it is handled and to find out how it overflows;
