This beautiful post has no featured image. It is only there to show how it fits into the cards, which are all the same height if posts displayed in an equal-height grid. The Read more link is always on the bottom of the cards. So you should fill the content with text to avoid whitespace.
Bootstrap source code is included in the theme and can be edited on the fly without using gulp, node, commands or other technical stuff. Just add your styles, save and the built-in compiler will do the trick. You will find files in folder /css/scss/.
This plugin is only required if you want to use * -masonry.php files. It replaces the card-columns in Bootstrap 4 which are no longer included in Bootstrap 5. Combine the powers of the Bootstrap grid and the Masonry layout.
