UI Schemes - Better than Themes

Choose between two major UI schemes: Alpha Gorilla and Classic Silvrback. These aren't called themes because they are more than themes. A UI scheme changes both your front-end blog and the back-end editing platform (and some other pages like your bio admin).

I believe the writing process and UX should be as tightly coupled to the final product as possible, so Silvrback will never use the typical blog approach of merely slapping skins onto the front-end.

Full Page Cover Images

Build your audience and your brand. Your homepage header area allows for a big profile image, as well as a bio sentence with your Twitter handle automatically appended. Every individual post page can also have its own full page cover image.

Darken your images for enhanced text readability, assign author credits and more...

You can also choose from top palettes on colourlovers.com for your post backgrounds. Having the option to choose a nice color gets rid of the annoyance of searching for a cover image that looks good.

Silvrback is built on the backbone of AWS (Heroku), and it is setup to autoscale when a traffic surge is detected. The front-end uses memcached extensively, so your pages will load fast for your readers.
