Classy is a premium WordPress theme created to meet your client’s needs. It’s a very clean and elegant business style theme that is super easy to use and customize. With 7 custom post types (homepage highlights, slider, portfolio, testimonials, staff, services and pricing columns), meta options and some handy shortcodes, adding content is very easy.
The idea behind Classy was to make a theme that not only looked great but that only included what you need to create one or many great looking business sites, without all the extra “stuff” that you will never use and if you wanted to there is mostly likely a great plugin for it. That said, it does have many amazing features such as large page header images, 30+ custom backgrounds, 11 amazing color skins, beautiful pricing tables (via custom post types), support for unlimited paginated portfolios, a clean and minimal blog..etc. Basically, all the goddies you’ll want in your business style theme.
Homepage: The homepage is composed of a slider section, a highlights section (1, 2, 3 or 4 columns option) that can be used for adding any text, a services section (1,2,3 or 4 columns) that supports little 25×25 icons, a latest portfolio carousel and a latest from the blog section (1,2,3 or 4 columns). No need to use shortcodes to create a homepage like the demo, simply add your custom post types and it will be set-up for you. However, if you want you can create a homepage using a static page and shortcodes.
Header Image: You can easily assign a large header image to any page (not post) using the featured image function. This header image is 980px wide to fit perfectly on your site but can be any height. You can see a sample page with a header image here. Perfect if you wish to have a nice header image for each of your pages or for just a few. You can add them to page templates as well (full-width, portfolio, staff, testimonials, services..etc).
Navigation Icons: Another cool thing about the Classy theme is that you can add some nifty icons to your navigation bar by simply inserting a class to your menu item. Its a great way to make your navigation stand out and more unique. There are 20+ icons to choose from and can be added to both the main navigation and the sub-navigation links.
Custom Post Types – Staff/Services/Portfolio/Pricing Tables/Testiomonials…: As mentioned above the Classy theme uses various custom post types for adding content to your site. Some of the coolest are the portfolio which supports unlimited categories and paginated pages, services which support small icon displays and large featured images, testimonials which have their own page template with a unique design and the Pricing Tables which are managed via the custom post types and you can create an unlimited amout of them.
Youtube Playlist – Video Tutorials/Support: I’ve already added some great video tutorials and will be adding more to make it even easier to see how everything works in this theme, even before you buy it – Classy WordPress Theme Videos Playlist
Hey AJ, I purchased your theme and I must say, “finally, a theme that requires minimal effort on the part of the client/customer!” So, congrats. I’m very happy with this purchase.
I just have to say this. After seeing AJ around the forums and commenting on other themes I was eager to buy his and luckily I got a client I could use it for soon after Classy was released.
Of all the themes I’ve configured this one has to be the easiest to set up, I had my client’s site set up in one night. The extra work he put in for the features- HP Highlights, Service, Slides, Testimonials, Staff and I just love the ease of the Portfolio image slider, which shows a lot of careful thought and planning with the user in mind.
Just wanted to let everyone know that AJ is awesome to work with… so buy this template and support a great author!!!
You will not be disappointed and receive awesome customer service.
He is very punctual at getting back to you with timely answers to your questions and totally bends over backwards to help out his clients.
I would just like to say, that i have purchased over 100 items from the envato marketplaces. In that time, AJ has been the most responsive and polite author i have ever worked with. 5 stars for this theme and the responsive support that backs it up.
This is an absolutely fantastic theme – not only does it look fantastic, it functions flawlessly and the documentation is so comprehensive it’s unbelievable!
Can’t wait to try your other themes AJ
I did email AJ with a small change I wanted to make and he responded within 15 minutes – a wonderful reply complete with screen-grabs.
Thank you AJ for firstly creating such a great theme and secondly for the fantastic support.
