Switchblade features an unbranded options area. Through this area you can customise the appearance of your website, add your social media profile information, change your fonts and determine what is shown on your blog and portfolio pages.
Switchblade offers users a huge number of ways to customise the look of your website. The template system is a welcome addition and with the modules system you can easily change the way important sections of your website are displayed without looking at any code. It’s a great theme for those of you who are looking for more control over how your website is displayed but don’t want the extensive features and options that comes with a theme framework.
