Minim is a very clean and professional portfolio and small business theme. The focus is on the portfolio content which allows you to easily showcase your work online in an elegant fashion. You can upload portfolio items via custom post types, create unlimited portfolio categories and of course choose between the 6 different portfolio item styles (default, slider, video, gallery, full images and plain). The portfolio template comes with a drop-down where users can choose what category to browse and pagination support. Since the portfolio template isn’t paginated you can get full SEO benefits from showcasing the static category pages.
For those who have a small web agency and wish to showcase their team members, Minim comes with a Fresh staff template and individual staff pages. You can add your members via the custom post types and each can have their own page with a longer description and their social icons.
Included are 2 gallery page templates (page with image slider and page with grid gallery) so you can have pages that showcase multiple images and are separate from the portfolio. And you can obviously make unlimited amounts of these..and the images show up automatically pulling from the media up-loader so you don’t have to deal with shortcodes to do them.
Blog Style Homepage Option Available!: Easily switch to a blog style homepage if you rather setup a simple blog and not deal with the slider or the homepage tabs
Static Sidebar Menu (Optional): A static menu and awesome navigation icons make this theme a cool change from your average sites. As the user scrolls down the menu scrolls down as well so it’s always visible, making browsing your site a great/easy experience. The navigation icon styles just add to the awesomeness by providing visual visual queues of the link in question. The icons are added via special classes in the WP menu creator so it’s really easy.
Awesome “Hello Bar” (With Cookies Enabled): A top notification bar is perfect for showing off your latest news and/or special announcements. You’ve seen them on all the top sites and always wanted one…now you too can bask in such glory.Simply set your desired notification in the theme panel and you’re set. Users can open/close the notification bar and a special cookie will remember your users action so they aren’t annoyed by it popping up or down with every page load.
Light or dark: versions of the theme are available and it only take a couple clicks in the theme panel to switch back and forth from them. Besides that, you can easily upload your own logo as well as choose a logo background color and background hover color (good for transparent logos or the default text logo).Here
Animated Sidebar or Regular Widgetized Sidebar: You can choose to use the default animated menu that moves while the user scrolls down the page or select the static sidebar option in the theme panel to allow for a “normal” widgetized sidebar.
