I’ve purchased this theme and I should say is one of the best themes I’ve seen. Well coded, documented and designed. Great work, Ruben!
Great Work Ruben. You’re best work so far. GLWS. Thank you so much for the inspiration.
This theme features a trending bold & flat design, with a lot of unique touches. It is based on a 1140px responsive grid, and it features a lot of cool styles and customization options.
It is totally responsive, meaning that it will look good on all kinds of mobile devices. The sliders have touch events enabled & the entire content is scaling properly down to the smallest size.
All the images in this theme will look sharp on devices with a high DPI. If you provide large sizes, when a user opens the site in a retina device a cookie will be stored on his device and after the first refresh all images will look really good!
The entire look of the theme can be easily changed through a lot of cool options provided with the Theme Customizer which allows you to edit the theme and preview your changes in real time. You can change colors, fonts & a lot of options in the layout.
Awesome Page Builder
Shadow includes a slightly modified version of the awesome Visual Composer for WordPress plugin, which allows you to build up your own pages with an incredible ease! There are lots of shortcodes available, and all of these provide many options for custom layouts of functionality. By combining everything available the possibilities are endless! You can build anything with this theme, whether you’re a seasoned web developer, a talented designer or even if you’re just starting out with WordPress.
The sliders of this theme are based on the great Revolution Slider plugin, which is an outstanding slider creator by it’s own. But if that’s too much for you, you can always use simpler sliders, such as the flexslider plugin.
With Shadow you can create unlimited portfolios with completely different settings. You can have three or four columns, there are two thumbnail styles, you can use images, slideshows & all kinds of videos easily, and each project can be created with custom shortcodes via the page builder. All thumbnails are automatically generated and cropped so you really don’t have to worry about anything! The galleries are created with drag & drop features, so it’s easier than ever to create a good looking portfolio in a matter of minutes.
The blog is also unique in this theme, giving you the option to have a classical blog or a masonry style grid. The shortcodes give you the option to have unlimited blogs, each one loading it’s own categories or posts. Post formats such images, galleries, videos, quotes, links or audio are also supported.
The theme offers custom styles for the popular WooCommerce plugin. You have a cool design for the main shop grid, for the product page, a cool AJAXified cart icon and much more.
You can create as many sidebars as you wish, to use in each one of your pages. The sidebars can be either left sided or right sided and inside them you can use all the default WordPress widgets, or most of the awesome shortcodes available in the page builder.
Three level menus
The menus can go up to three level of links, being optimized for touch devices and providing a responsive menu for small devices and screens.
As it can be seen, the theme gives you the option to have different parallax backgrounds on any page! Any full-width row can have it’s own background color, image or pattern, so with just a bit of imagination, you can create a really unique experience for your users.
The theme offers over 500 custom fonts via Google Fonts. There are types for headings, for italics and for the main body font.
The theme is built with SEO in mind, having a good structure, heading elements for titles, alt tags for images and a really great page speed!
Translation Ready (Multilingual)
.po and .mo files are available, making the theme easy to translate into your own language. This theme is also compatible with multilanguage plugins such as WPML (there is an xml configuration file for this plugin in the theme) or qTranslate
HTML5 & CSS3
The theme is built using the latest web development technologies, including HTML5 media content, CSS3 transitions, canvas elements and semantic & well organized code.
11 Layered PSD Files
A lot of PSD files are available in the download. With them, you can easily change layouts and stuff for presenting the perfect website for your clients!
Great Documentations & Support
There is a comprehensive manual available and some quality screencasts which can help you get started with the theme and there is always the support forum backed by professionals caring for your business!
