I recently switched to the Oxygen theme and I really like its aesthetics, but it just doesn't seem to do what I want. Here's a list of some of the limitations I've found. If you know anything more about these or have similar frustrations, please comment.
--Using "Showcase" via making posts "sticky" is clumsy. If I make more than 6 posts sticky then not only do they not appear in the Showcase, but they also disappear from "recent articles." This means when I make new posts sticky, I have to go into old posts and make them "unsticky" if I want them to show up on the showcase page at all.
--No infinite scroll when using showcase. I really like the infinite scroll layout when the front page is set to display latest posts. When I set it to a static showcase page, there is no more infinite scroll :(
--No Full Width Page posts. Under layout, I've made posts display as a static page that I've made with the template of full width page. However, it doesn't matter what I set this template to, the posts all display the same (which is a 3-column format). My blog is all about photos so I'd really like to have either full width or at least reclaim on of the columns.
There are a few less important ones, but these are the main issues for me. If I am mistaken on any of them and they are possible, please let me know. Note I do not have the CSS upgrade and don't plan to buy it. If you know of a similar-looking theme that allows these features, I'd love to know about it. Thanks!
