Acoustic Theme is a powerful and beautiful WordPress theme – it is designed in a clean and minimalistic style and packed with all the features you need to present yourself with style and professionalism. This theme is powered by the advanced Pexeto Panel, which provides tons of options to modify any aspect of the theme – it is well suited for both beginners with no coding experience and developers. This theme will work great for any kind of websites – photography, business, personal, portfolio and no matter what kind of content your website will contain, the theme will take care of representing every single part of it in an elegant and professional way.
Making changes of the color scheme of your site has never been easier with the advanced admin options the theme has available. We have included options to change the colors and stylings used in the theme for the main sections – for every color option, we have also included a color picker to make color choice even easier. Additionally, the theme comes with 23 different background patterns that you can choose from and if you would like to use your own custom background, the theme also provides an option to upload your own background image.
4 Unlimited Sliders
Acoustic Theme comes with four beautiful image sliders and each of them can be used on as many pages as you like, with different image sets:
- The new exclusive Zoom Slider with very beautiful zooming motions and amazing black/white thumbnail effect
- Nivo slider with 15 different transition effects and many options available
- Thumbnail slider which is great for presenting lots of images
- An elegant Accordion slider which is well suitable for presenting images with longer descroptions
Advanced Slider Management Section
Acoustic theme implements an advanced slider management section, so managing sliders and their images can’t be easier. You can very easily upload new images, delete and edit existing images and change their order by dragging and dropping them. Also, in this section you can create as many additional sliders as you need and subsequently set each of them to different pages.
Flexible and Unlimited Portfolio Pages
There are a porfolio gallery and showcase page templates included which are great for presenting your work and products. Each of them provides lots of customization options, for example, selecting number of columns, displaying category filter, including pagination, enabling black/white effect to images, and much more. We have also implemented lots of different options for the portfolio items, such as selecting an action after clicking on the image thumbnail or choosing how the thumbnail image will be cropped.
Advanced Styling Buttons
The theme includes an unique set of buttons that allow you to directly insert the styled content into your editor area. In this way, you can easily organize your content while creating it without having to save and preview your page with every change you do.
Apart the default fonts that you can set, the theme provides a friendly user interface to implement Cufon Font replacement and Google API Fonts. For the Cufon font replacement you can either use one of the fonts that the theme comes with or upload your own custom font. For the Google Fonts we have created a section where you can enable as many fonts as you like just by adding the URL the API provides. You can check out the font management section here
Automatic Black&White image effect
All the images from the sections that support the nice Black&White image effect are generated automatically by the theme – you don’t have to create separate images for this effect.
The theme comes with a detailed documentation, which includes examples, screenshots and all the main instructions you will need to customize your site. Additionally, we have included a “Beginners” section which includes some helpful links about working with WordPress and instructions about what steps to follow when setting the theme.
