Hey I was wondering if any of you awesome designers could give me an idea or three on how to maybe change up the first part of the single post layout I’m working on for my custom WordPress theme? Right now it looks pretty good, but I’m afraid it still looks pretty similar to Kailoon’s “My WordPress” theme that I’m currently using on my site.

All I’m trying to come up with is a different layout/arrangement for the first part of the single posts that will display the post image, post meta, and post title…

Here’s what I’ve got so far, input is welcome: Screenshot

Hey Josh,

Looks pretty good. There’s nothing too out of the ordinary in the actual layout, but I would say don’t overdo the ‘wrap-around’ effect :P

Thanks Keith, I’ll keep that in mind…

Surely someone else has some ideas as to different ways to layout the post meta information at the top of each post… no?

What about making the ‘13’ wrap around go the whole width of the image, and you could put the meta information in there?

Hmm… that could work, I just don’t want to wind up blocking out too much of the image so as to make it lose any relevance it may have had to the post.

Maybe do the same kinda effect with the ‘Post author’ wrap-over but add the date in there too, since the meta already states the post author?
