    Hmh, can't find how to move "preview-image" under h1 title of a post on the homepage. The pic looks separated from the post right now... :(

    @Paweł Magiera Yes Sir, it certainly makes sense, but still it's a bit misleading on my blog. The difference I notice, I get oversized previews - . I wanted to use that blog as a gathering place for pictures, it looks okay only on smallest browser window width. Needless to say how wrong it currently looks at fullscreen :) Have I missed some configuration step?

    @Mikle Talalaevskiy This theme is designed to show big photos (1024px or larger) before each post and these photos should introduce reader to the post content. It's also prepared to display content of the post. This theme isn't designed to show only small images without any content.

    For embedded videos, can you just include the necessary HTML code in the post? I'm not referring to placing a video in the Featured Photo section, but rather, just in the body of the post.

    Also - have you considered adding captions to photos? Perhaps like the Orca or Astro themes for Ghost?

    Thank you.

    @Michael Wong Yes, you can add HTML code to post content. It won't be responsive, but it will work. Remember to set width to 700px and height to 394px on youtube or vimeo.

    Even though I turn Sidebar to True, I still don't see any sidebar. Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Also, I'd love to display a logo on the landing page - is there a way to do that?

    Thank you for the response. My primary Ghost blog is This is ultimately where I want to use this theme. I run a test blog where I get theme set up before I deploy to backward-om - For the logo issue, you will see on backward-om how the logo sits above the tag line. I'd like to be able to do that. You will see on vistest that there is no sidebar, even though I've turned sidebar=true on as suggested. As a side given my photo focus, I LOVE the implementation of the shadow box - it's one of the main reasons I purchased your template! If a direct response is easier, you can reply to

    How do I add the Comment box to the bottom of each post? It doesn't appear on my first few posts.... (also the "subscribe" button....)

    Hi, there.

    I love this theme, but I'm more of a writer than a photographer, so I'd prefer the images to be smaller. Would it be easy to customise the theme so the images are smaller?

    A few more questions:

    1. Is there a way to make the tags clickable, so that readers can view posts by tag?
    2. Would it be easy to turn off the lightbox functionality, if I wanted to?
    3. Do you plan to keep updating this theme in line with new Ghost updates?
    4. Will future updates be free?

    Look forward to your answers!

    @Chris Lovie-Tyler This theme is designed to have big photos before each post,but when you don't provide, they won't show and then you can put normal image in text. Tags are not clickable at the moment, but this will probably be added in next update. Lightbox can't be turned off. Future updates of course will be free.
