Loop and sidebar

All loop cards have been redesigned to improve usability.

  • Featured image in horizontal cards (cropped lg) has more space, less crop on critical size between lg and xl breakpoints.
  • <h2> title has now class h5 like the Bootstrap horizontal card demo.
  • Badges have now class text-bg-light instead text-bg-secondary class for less dominance.
  • Tags badge function has been refactored to separate “Tagged” title and hide title in the cards.
  • Featured image, title, excerpt and read more link to the article. Meta and badges link to tags, category, comments etc.

To best see the effect, shrink your browser window close to ≤992px breakpoint and compare both cards.
