Featured Image

In addition to syntax highlighting - this is something I feel is sorely missing from the default Casper. The images are set to fit the content 100% so this should not be an issue.

Why do this?

Simple, Ghost is absolutely phenomenal, although, there are a few issues I've got - the complete lack of a native comment system is one, the other syntax highlighting and thirdly no featured image on home page support. So you end up with this modified version of the Casper theme which is going to be a work-in-progress for quite some time.

Releasing this for public consumption makes me extremely happy! As I stated previously, I believe knowledge is power and every man, woman and child should have unfiltered access to that power. This modified theme has no copyrights, no modifications displaying links to the project page or to my personal website and I think that is exactly how it should be!
