Out of all the Blogger templates that I’ve seen so far that has a masonry design layout, SoraTemplates‘ TheStyle has got to be the one with the most unique take on it, because unlike the others, theirs involves having one of the columns occupy twice the space. Actually, it’s a 4-column layout with 2 sidebars, and the first row in the middle usually fills up 2 column space. The succeeding rows are then evenly divided to 4 until the next page.
he jQuery mouseover effect is pretty nice; whenever your mouse cursor hovers over one article it expands its container while it dims out the others. The date stamp looks great too; aside from being very visible, it blends perfectly with the post’s thumbnail, as if it’s part of the image.
Things I wish it has is a more stylish CSS3 effect for the navigation menu, a more refined Search box (‘coz that brown outline that appears every time you click on it just takes away the professional look of the template), and some social sharing widget preferably at the top (but the footer would do just fine).
As for the template’s features, it include: page navigation, SEO friendly, 1-to-4-column footer, and a jump (a.k.a. Read more) button.
NOTE: One thing you’d need to remember in case you might want to try it out however is that you should at least have 10 published posts in order for the template to work properly.
