Gallery & Blog Views
Melbourne is probably one of the richest themes when it comes to customization options for galleries and blog posts.
Four layout options for Galleries:
Grid View Masonry – the classic grid masonry view.
Gallery Crop – this view will be in a letterbox view and will crop your image if not in the correct ratio.
Visible Nearby – have images displayed each side of the current slider image.
Gallery No Crop – this type of slider will not crop your images and have them fit the container.
Six view types for your Blog:
Card view alternating – this view will have your image and text alternating left or right.
Card View – with this view your images will be on the left and the text/excerpt on the right hand side. All are displayed in content width
50/50 – image left and text right with a 50/50 split.
List View – this is the classic title and featured image look. There is also an option to show the full content view, when this option is enabled it shows the full post.
Grid View – this is standard grid view with the title displayed on hover, there is also the option for a masonry grid view available if you wish to have different sized featured images.
Grid View Text Under – This is similar to the above, however the title is displayed below the image.
