Meet Quadro, a sleek blog theme for Tumblr with an emphasis on sharing. Quadro has a flexible masonry layout with blocks of different sizes. Simply use tags to “embiggen” posts to draw attention to them. The sharing widget makes your posts even more discoverable thanks to its beautiful design, and the full-featured sidebar can be hidden off-canvas, or “pinned” on desktop screens. Take a look at the demos—blogging has just become a tad more stylish!
Quadro uses CSS3 properties—gradients, drop shadows, transparency—and SVG (scalable vector graphics) for all of the icons and user interface. This ensures that your website will look great on any device, no matter its screen resolution or pixel density. You can use a text logo or an image one, with an option to upload a retina logo image as well.
Ajax post loading and endless scrolling
Choose between regular static pagination links, Ajax post loading with the click of a button, or true endless scrolling without the need for user interaction.
Off-canvas sidebar with plenty of widgets
The off-canvas sidebar can be optionally “pinned” on large screens, which means it will be always visible on the left above a certain screen width. The included widgets are: Navigation and search, Twitter, Dribbble, Flickr, Instagram and the Social widget.
Flexible Masonry layout
The homepage grid is made-up of columns that are about 300 pixels wide. Each block can span a single column, or you can use the special tags medium and large so they span two or three columns instead. You can also limit the grid width to four, three or two columns.
Focus on sharing
Both on the homepage and individual pages, each post features a widget with “reblog”, “like” and “share” actions prominently, with an stylish and exclusive design.
Responsive photoset grids lets you arrange your images in any way you want.
”Fake” titles for image, audio and video posts
You can display a title for this post types on the homepage by simply highlighting the first caption paragraph and making it bold.
Social Icon Links
Links to your favorite social networks are displayed at the bottom of the sidebar. These are the included social links: Bandcamp, Behance, Blogger, Delicious, Deviantart, Digg, Dribbble, Email, Etsy, Facebook, Flickr, Forrst, Foursquare, Github, Google Plus, Instagram, Lastfm, Linkedin, Myspace, Picasa, Pinboard, Pinterest, Quora, Rdio, Reddit, Rss, Skype, Soundcloud, Spotify, Squarespace, Stumbleupon, Tumblr, Twitter, Vimeo, Wordpress, and Youtube.
