    Is there any documentation/tutorial on making a custom theme?

    I’m with ktrusak I would love to be able to move the elements around (i.e. excerpt on top). I’ve found a way to modify the plugin file to do so but it get overwritten every update. Custom Themes for the base and featured content plugins would rock!
