Lector is a Ghost theme seriously optimized for reading.
Go from one screen size to the other – and Lector will go with you. Your mobile readers will have a great reading experience on their commute or while waiting for the bus.
Asynchronous page loading
Pages are asynchronously loaded, so there is no page reloading. The URL is updated through HTML5 history. This all makes for a faster and smoother experience.
The first image added to the top of a post becomes the featured image, it’s that simple.
Search is powered by Tapirus. After a simple setup, Lector is ready to be searched. Readers can search for any specific post they would like to revisit.
For comments, you can choose between Disqus, Livefyre and Google+. They’re all three integrated and all you have to do is fill in two settings to enable commenting.
Social sharing buttons at the end of the post encourage the reader to share their find and bring you more social traffic. Sharing is enabled through AddThis, so after you’ve setup your account, you get access extended social sharing statistics.
If you’re a developer or enjoy sharing the casual piece of code, Prism brings some much needed color.
At the end of the current post, you can go to the next post. This encourages the reader to read more of your work. Currently, this feature is limited to the 15 most recent posts.
All YouTube, Vimeo, Kickstarter, Viddler or Blip.tv videos you embed, either through Embedly or by pasting the embed code directly inside the post are responsive.
If you have a free or premium Embedly account, you can embed video and other media by simply pasting the URL inside the post editor. Easy peasy lemon squeezy …
Custom error page
Lector includes a friendly custom error page that overrides the default Ghost error page and fits the design of the theme.
Each posts includes a reading time estimation so that your readers know if they have enough time to start reading and finish the post.
Ghost 0.4 ready
Lector supports Ghost 0.4 and includes a template for static pages. The sidebar contains the navigation menu where you can add links to pages (by editing default.hbs).
