Little Story

Live Preview

Little Story is a colorful, textured theme with support for featured images, several post formats, social networking options, widget areas, a responsive design – all this and more in a charming, illustrated style with lots of sweet details and accents.

Featured Images

Want to make your content stand out? Adding a Featured Image to your Sticky posts will make them shine, as the image is displayed at the full width of the content column. Sticky posts are also noted with a special symbol and a unique background color to set them apart.

Post Formats

Little Story supports Aside, Image, Video, Quote, Link, Gallery, and Status post formats, all with their own unique look.

Aside, Quote, Link, and Status formats use transparent backgrounds, borders, or larger type to set them apart from other posts, presenting your content in a variety of complementary styles. Video posts look similar to the standard post, with one added feature: your users can filter all video posts using the Video post format archive link in the post meta.


If the Image post format is selected, the theme will display a single image with the post title beneath it. You can specify the Featured Image to be shown, but if none is set, the theme will attempt to grab the first attachment to the post or the first image from the post content.

Image formatted posts are displayed with a different background color and minimal post meta.


Like images, Gallery formatted posts are also displayed with a different background color.

Theme Options

You can use the handy theme options to personalize Little Story by adding links to your favorite social networks, or to display a brief bio after each post. You’ll find Little Story’s options in the Customizer, under Appearance - Themes - Customize - Theme Options.

Mobile Footer

In addition to a responsive layout, Little Story’s footer widget areas, if assigned, can be toggled on or off when viewed on a mobile device. This keeps the user’s browsing experience clean and clutter free. Click on the circle with the plus sign to expand the menu when viewing on a mobile device.

Custom Menus

You can configure a custom menu that will display in the header of your site by going to Appearance - Menus and assigning your menu to the Primary Menu area.


Little Story supports up to four widget areas – one Sidebar and three optional Footer Sidebars – that can be configured under Appearance - Widgets. If no widgets are assigned to the Sidebar, it will display search, archives, and meta widgets by default.

Full-width Page Template

Need a little extra breathing room for your content? You can remove the sidebar on individual pages by setting the template to Full Width, No Sidebar under Page Attributes.
