The Opal template features a homepage that displays recent episodes in a Post view, with a visible sidebar. The header has a do not show the header. You can customize this part of the page all you want.
Opal uses Montaga for all page headers and Open Sans for the body text, but supports any font from the Google Font library, or any custom font you'd like to upload.
Websites using the Opal template stay up to date automatically. New episode pages are created every time a new episode is released, and Podpage checks for new reviews on Apple Podcasts and Podchaser.
