My blog uses DePo Masthead and I really like the clean, news-like multiple-post column approach, which is perfect for a blog that focuses on politics and public policy. However, I'm starting to run into problems when I publish more frequently than say, three times in a recent period - the older piece slides off to the right out of sight, and there's nothing I can do about it.
What would be great is a four (or more!) column theme for wordpress.com where you could display multiple posts side-by-side, especially for blogs like mine that focus on current events, politics, and the like. It would also be great to be able to configure the layout a bit more, so that I could keep posts that are drawing eyes up front, while letting less-successful efforts fall off the "front page" so to speak. What I'm looking for, in short, is more newspaper-like formats.
There are a bunch of really great, crisp, and uncomplicated four+ column themes that could fill this role:
1. News Print - http://www.theenglishguy.co.uk/news-print-v20-theme/
Very simple look, allows 3 or 4 columns, and allows you to configure the layout.
2. Blog Times - http://wp2.milo317.com/
Based on the New York Times' classic look, allowing you to place multiple posts the way you want them.
3. New Yorker - http://www.wplocker.com/premium-themes/stylewp/the-new-yorker-premium-wordpress-theme/
Likewise based on the magazine, allows for a lot of customization, and display of many different posts at
once without overwhelming the eye.
4. NYC Reds - http://3oneseven.com/02/nyc-reds-wp-theme/
Similar kind of thing, but a bit less obviously newspapery and a bit more color.
A straight copy of one of these themes isn't strictly necessary, but it would be nice to have something along these lines if it's possible.
The blog I need help with is realignmentproject.wordpress.com.
