I usually change my main website theme every year or two, so after two years with Storytime, I was getting that itch again. But it’s such a pretty theme with so much cool stuff in it–and it’s compatible with ClassicPress, unlike a lot of themes that are getting into blocks now. Also, Storytime is specifically for authors.
So I checked out what it’s up to now, and discovered that the premium version has been upgraded with a new Story Post and some other features I’d like. (The free version hasn’t changed much.) The Story Post turns your short story posts into books, with (on a desktop) artwork and the title on the left and your text on the right. So I didn’t need to change themes at all, just upgrade.
So I did that. At first it had issues with ClassicPress, but the fix for that was in the support forums, so I got that out of the way. And now my short stories and travelogues (which you can find on my Writing page) are turned into “books,” while I’ve upgraded the rest of the site colors/background/etc. I also hacked into it some to personalize features with my own photos. It looks really pretty. Come check it out!
