Today we’ve got a treat for you — a new theme called Selecta. This might be the theme you’ve been waiting for if videos or images will be the primary focus of your blog. The design, originally created by Obox Design, fuses the modern with the retro — a bold, striking color palette (in six color schemes), rounded edges, and wider-than-usual frames around content.
Selecta is loaded with elements that highlight your images and videos. First, there’s the featured slider that showcases your sticky posts at the top of the front page. Next, there’s the “Latest Posts” row that places your four most recent posts in fun, rounded boxes, also on the front page. That’s not all — if you create a post with the video or image Post Format, Selecta will display your content in a wide, one-column template on the single post view. This ensures that your images and videos receive your readers’ undivided attention. Talk about showing off!
I certainly haven’t revealed everything this theme has to offer. Click on over to the Theme Showcase to read more about Selecta and all of its great features.

Highly colourful and engaging in a way that makes people pay closer attention to a brighter message. I do hope the spirituality set will be quick to use it.

This would totally work for the new blog/site I’m planning to put up, dedicated to island civics of SXM. Especially for incorporating Youtube videos about government history.
I absolutely adore the look!
