Astro - Showcase/Photography Wordpress Theme



  • This Wordpress Theme is great for all photographers and creatives. It comes with tons of customization options including the Visual Composer Plugin (worth 28 USD) to speed up the page creation process and it has a cool Ajax Page Loading feature (can be turned off). This option will allow a smoother the user experience and will speed up the page loading process;
  • It also features a cool Full Size Accordion (worth 11USD) that will create impact on your website visitors. The single post portfolio pages have the option to show also fullscreen images which is a great feature for those who want to show big imagery;
  • Shop integration? Sure! WooCommerce plugin has been styled and improved to fit on the theme like a glove;
  • The theme is translation ready (compatible and certified by WPML http://wpml.org/theme/astro/ ), but you can also translate using the control panel (best solution if only one language is needed);
  • Need more? Ok, the theme offers also a complete members section with single pages for each person. Different teams can be created so unlimited teams pages can be set;
  • The theme options cover a wide range of possibilities and the theme has been studied carefully to display perfectly on all types of devices. Special attention has been given to font rendering as well as the main layout elements;
  • Finally, the theme has been optimized to work with the following plugins: Revolution Slider, Contact Form 7 and MailChimp;

Custom Admin Control Panel

  • I have totally revamped and created a brand new and more powerful admin panel. Divided in 10 sections the Astro Options Panel will allow to fully edit the content and decide on how will some sections be displayed;
  • It’s also very easy to translate all of the text that used on your website (it can be done directly on the theme options, using .mo/.po files or using WPML plugin). This theme was certified by WPML team: http://wpml.org/theme/astro/
