Oncanvas is a light and minimal distraction-free portfolio theme. It displays posts in a 3-column grid layout, without a sidebar on the homepage and archive pages.

Theme Installation

1. In your admin panel, go to Appearance > Themes and click the Add New button.
2. Click Upload and Choose File, then select the theme’s .zip file. Click Install Now.
3. Click Activate to use your new theme right away.

How to setup the front page like the demo site

When you first activate Oncanvas, your homepage will display posts in a traditional blog format.

In Settings > Reading you must set WordPress to display “Your Latest Posts”, not a static page.

These are the widgets used in the live demo, if you’re looking to replicate the same structure:
