I'd like to buy the Fresh News theme, but have some questions first:
1. I've seen demos of this theme showing a photo and story across one wide column, with two smaller photos and stories side-by-side directly beneath it, each of those being half the width of the one above. That's exactly what I want. But, when I previewed the theme, I saw every story reproduced in the single wide-column format. Are there more column options with this theme, or is the single wide column all that's available on wordpress.com?
2. If there are no column options available with this on wordpress.com, could you suggest another theme that would be suitable for a newspaper-style blog? I'd like to have the main news story as the wide column at the top, with stories for each of the other categories - sports, entertainment, etc. - appearing in the smaller format I described above.
This is in reference to thepointfitchburgstate.wordpress.com.
The blog I need help with is thepointfitchburgstate.wordpress.com.
