Cast is an intuitive, flexible and powerful WordPress theme, designed to suit the needs of building and construction websites of all sizes. Cast is built with utility in mind, making your content pop with its ready made layouts.
The theme includes the most popular premium plugins on the market: Visual Composer, Revolution Slider and Essential Grid. Using this set of plugins, you can create almost any type of layout, using a drag & drop interface and tons of pre-built elements.
Cast is translation ready and compatible with the WPML plugin.
Fully Responsive Layout
Cast is based on Bootstrap Framework, meaning it was built mobile first. From image sliders to portfolio grids and contact forms, Cast theme is guaranteed to display properly on all major devices.
HiDPI screens are a common feature among mobile devices nowadays, so having a retina ready website is a must. Cast uses vector graphics and @2x files to insure full retina / HiDPI compatibility.
Font Awesome Integration
Besides other included icons, Cast features the popular Font Awesome icon pack. Always updated to the latest version, Font Awesome can always come in hand with its minimalist icons.
Google Fonts is one of the most complete source of free web fonts. With more than 600 high quality fonts, you can customize your website to any style of feel.
Drop Down Menus
When using complex page hierarchies or content rich websites, drop down menus could definitely come in hand. Cast features a two-level drop down menu, that is also visible on mobile devices.
One / Multi Page Structure
You can either set your website as a one page layout, a multi page layout, or a combination between the two of them.
Cast is fully WPML compatible and also includes .mo and .po files that can be translated using an appropriate software like PO Edit.
The parallax scrolling effect is a nice effect to have on your website. With Cast, you can set parallax backgrounds to pages, single or multi page sections and you can also control the speed and container span.
Personalizing the colours to your favourite ones should be a must have option for any theme. Cast allows you to edit almost any colour in the theme, using either theme options or page elements.
Using a video as background instead of an image could definitely make your website more appealing. With Cast, you can set video backgrounds using Youtube or Vimeo as source.
Contact Form 7 Compatible
Being one of the most reliable contact forms available for WordPress, Contact Form 7 is responsive, easy to use and effective.
Getting your website to rank first in Google requires you to provide good and relevant content, but it?s our duty to insure proper code formatting that helps at better scoring from Google.
Optimised for Speed
Even though Cast is packed with a lot of impressive features, the code is always optimised for best performance on all environments.

- at least 128MB memory limit - read / write permissions to wp-content/uploads folder - mod_rewrite enabled - ZipArchive Extension enabled - PHP version 5.6 or greater - MySQL version 5.6 or greaterSome recommended values:
- upload_max_filesize: at least 32MB - max_execution_time: 180 - post_max_size: at least 32MB - memory_limit: at least 128MB - max_input_vars: at least 1000, but as pages are more complex (with page builder) the higher number will be best.
