Can this style of blog be emulated using Layers?

Asked on November 30, 2015 in Customization.

My favorite clean blog layout is Jason Snell’s It seems very simple and clean which I love. I was wondering if there would be a way to replicate this style using Layers. I have not been able to using Layers Pro. I was just wondering if anyone would know how to get this. I love the way he has a different color based on weather it’s a native post or a link.

    Hi there,
    This is possible with Custom CSS. Of course, you need to know how to locate selectors and restyle them – we cannot give you specific styling code here.
    Below are some guides for restyling Layers:

    Layers Pro WILL make this easier, as it allows you to control the colors and which blog meta is visible, etc. The general layout of the posts (with the meta to the left) would still require CSS customization. I recommend checking out the Marketplace page in your admin to see if an existing Layers Child Theme or Style Kit already provides a similar look and feel.
