The Pro feature adds the following styling options:

Reveal effect

Customizer has a Reveal Effect option for posts appearing on the website. Available for pro users, this effect enables users to embed a reveal effect for their posts whenever a page is loaded or refreshed. 

Blog Layout

There are three types of blog layouts available in total, from which you can choose your Blog / Archive layout. Each layout comes with a specific set of options – these will appear when you select the Layout type.

Keep in mind that the final look of your Blog / Archive page will also depend on the number of posts displayed per page. You can set this at Dashboard > Settings > Reading.

Different Layout options

This particular layout, when selected, activates the Grid Layout option.

You can select the number of columns (up to 4) to display your blog posts. You can also adjust the number of posts to show per page for each layout.

Note: You will only be able to select the Grid Layout when the first Layout is selected. Not when the Image is on the left or right.
