Short Product Description

Andromeda is a clean theme with functional CMS and unique features. A massive pack of backend CMS options was created for this product to give you full control while creating and editing the site and its features. The main idea behind this theme was to create a something clean and simple, useful, nice looking and easy to modify.

Andromeda comes with three sliders equipped with full CMS options that allow you to easy create slides, add image descriptions and create links. Two sliders are designed for the main page – you can choose here: Unique Fader/Mover with special floating descriptions or Accordion Slider (available from version 1.4). To see how Accordion Slider is working go to Andromeda main Live Preview. Homepage Fader/Mover slider is presented on “Light Version” demo (check other preview links above). Third slider called as Featured Slider is optional. It is a smaller version of Fader/Mover Slider created for use on all other pages.

Thanks to CMS options, like for example auto resizing tool for small thumbs, creating slides and posts is simple and very fast process. In CMS you will find also special options for Main Menu, Services, Homepage, and a big set of General options. With this theme it is possible to create portfolio, galleries, contact page, full width page. It is also possible to create multiple sidebars, multiple blogs or even multiple services pages. Services page can be used for products or services demonstration, or for any other application that you will find useful. And there are more options and features, like for example easy background changer, very useful styles buttons in HTML editor, custom Andromeda widgets and tag map.
