I am using the TechNews template and it is excellent!
I did notice, however, that link options within the editor allows for a few options which are not as pretty as what the theme allows for.
I have begun hand editing links exactly like what is seen under “featured” links.
It is possible to make this a feature within the editor?
You may consider “large”, “medium”, and “small” links to match how a template generates links. Of course not all templates are equal, however, if you look at the TechNews template, you will easily see that large, medium, and small is well represented.
The options could be “templated large”, and so on…
