Intergalactic Theme

Designed by Automattic’s very own Mel Choyce, Intergalactic is a stunning specimen for your personal blog. Bold featured images act as the backdrop to your text, giving you a high-contrast, readable theme that’s perfect for making your content pop. The one-column layout provides a distraction-free environment for reading, while the slide-out menu keeps your navigation and secondary content readily accessible.

In Mel’s own words…

Intergalactic was inspired by long-form storytelling sites like Exposure and Medium. I wanted to design a theme that focused heavily on showcasing your stories, images, and videos, and could flex its content to many different use-cases. I also wanted everything to be big — as big as the Beastie Boys (who inspired the name). It was great working with Caroline to bring Intergalactic to life.

    Just a heads up: Leave a reply (non-mobile) and taxonomy description are not being displayed correctly (black transparent stripe over).

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I’ve fixed the taxonomy descriptions, but I’m not seeing what you mean by the “Leave a Reply” part — can you post a screenshot to the support forum so we can try to reproduce the bug? Cheers!

        Sorry, taking a better look at it the problem is the footer: instead of appearing below the navigation at the end of the page, it’s appearing in the middle of the page. Screenshot

          Hi! We’re looking into the mobile issue. Let’s take this to the support forum so we can get more details without cluttering the comments.๐Ÿ™‚ Can you post a link to a live example of the bug with the browser(s) you’re using? I still haven’t been able to reproduce this, but want to figure it out.

    I love this theme and I’m already using it. I only have one question: A part of the footer is overlapping the last comment (I do not use custom CSS at the moment).

    People that don’t have featured images can’t use it. I won’t change all of my posts. It would be great to use the first image from the post instead only featured.

    Is there a way to space out sentences in this theme? So that there are page brakes?
