Matrix is a responsive, intuitive tile-based theme which is inspired by Metro design. The tiles can be made ‘live’ to display more information on the screen without occupying more space.
This WordPress theme comes with 10 pre-defined colours and an advanced but easy-to-use admin panel. It is highly customizable to suit the needs of every user. Unlike conventional designs, each tile can be customized to create any design you can imagine!
All the files are coded with valid HTML5 tags and CSS3, and are Search Engine Optimized (SEO) using valid HTML5 semantic tags for each section and are written in decreasing order of importance down the page. For instance, the title and content of an article comes before the comments and sidebar within a HTML file, and titles are enclosed in h1 tags to signify their importance.
Currently, I am accepting any requests for features and new icons for tiles, so do not hesitate to contact me if you require any help.

Theme OptionsWith each option well-organized into its respective tabs, you can easily find and edit certain elements of the website. Besides, modifying the look of your website is now made simpler thanks to the availability of colour picker, easy-image-uploading and slide order sorter.
Theme Options BackupNo matter how ‘effortlessly’ you can set up your theme, you wouldn’t want to repeat the whole process if there is any problem with your website. Hence, you can now backup all your theme settings and save it somewhere for future use, either to a sister-site, or to restore your settings in case of accidents.
Unlimited SliderYou can add any number of images to the slider and sort them in any order you like. This does not only apply to slider images, but also the testimonials and people shown at the ‘About’ page, as well as the bottom content at the main page.
Automatic Update NotificationMaintaining a website is already a tedious chore. Hence, you have one thing less to worry if you use this theme – the theme will automatically notify you when there is an update available. It’s not a revolutionary feature, but it’s definitely convenient!
Post EditorWith every settings visualized and placed into different meta boxes, you can easily customize everything for the post. Certain options will only be shown when required depending on post format and your settings, so you can never do wrong in setting up your posts!
ShortcodesThis is not a memory test, so you shouldn’t memorize anything. Hence, all the shortcodes have been converted into convenient buttons / dropdowns and you can apply them with a single click. Game-changer? No. Handy? Absolutely!
