Storefront is primarily a WooCommerce theme but that’s not to say that it cannot be used for standard blog/magazine web sites. The importance of an active blog with a large readership is an invaluable asset to any eCommerce website as well.
The Storefront Blog Customizer extension gives you the ability to give your blog a unique design that suits your content and to display blog content on your homepage.
Once installed you’ll find a new top level ‘Blog’ section within the WordPress Customizer, clicking that will reveal a panel, with sections for each part of the blog that can be customized:
As the name suggests, this setting gives control over the your posts layout. You can specify whether you want the post meta (categories, tags, etc.) to be aligned to the left or right of your content, or beneath, or above it. There are merits to each design and the type of blog you run will dictate which is most appropriate.
