At the moment, my favorite theme is the Source theme, it’s very simple, beautiful and light, it was a great hit by Ghost, but the theme I liked the most was Smart, which was maintained by yourself Ryan. It covered all my needs.
I use the Source theme on my website, www.publiso.com.br.
I like the way it’s photo-forward without sacrificing text, and it feels… manageable. A lot of themes, including Source, do that Substack thing where articles kind of look like they’re randomly strewn around the page. Ruby is… ordered.
I’m using Tripoli from Aspire Themes (hi, Ahmad!), which is perfect for our news and commentary site. Has two big featured stories in the center column, three smaller featured stories in the left column, and other Latest stories in the right column. Under that you can set up various categories in the settings, and it will pull stories matching those tags. Lots of other features.
Here’s a screenshot of the home page, without the ads (that are there for non-members only):
