Atlas features an alternate topic list layout intended to highlight topic excerpts, and also includes space for an (optional) sidebar. Categories feature user-dismissable headers populated by the “About” topic.
Preview on theme creator (note that excerpts aren’t turned on, so the preview is a bit limited)
The sidebars are added using the Custom Sidebar component , which can be setup to feature a post as the sidebar content for specified categories. Configuration details are in the repo’s readme.
The theme works best with the box category style (admin > settings)
Excerpts can be enabled using a hidden site setting called
always_include_topic_excerpts. To enable this setting you need console access to your server.
To enable excerpts via the command line
./launcher enter app rails c
and then in the rails console
SiteSetting.always_include_topic_excerpts = true
There are some hard-coded colors in this theme, I need to update those to be editable by color schemes
