    • Kyla Avatar Kyla says:

      Aaaaaaand WPExplorer 😛 Right?

      • theexecutivetoday says:

        i need a theme like wpexplorer with boxed posts with a grey background just like wpexplorer and wpbeginner

        • Kyla Avatar Kyla says:

          Hmmm I don’t know of an exact match off the top of my head, but if you scour WordPress.org I’m sure you can find a theme with boxed blog posts and a general layout similar to what you’re looking for. Then you can just use the theme Customizer to add a gray background, or try a premium plugin like Yellow Pencil or CSSHero to make styling edits to pretty much any part of your theme.

          Another option is to get a premium builder theme like the Total WordPress Theme that includes a drag & drop page builder. Total includes options to create custom page layouts and to customize your blog post layouts so I have no doubt that you can create the exact design you want 🙂
