Ellisium is a blogging Tumblr theme with a corporate bent. With its clean and open layout, Ellisium is the perfect companion for your business’ main website.
Ellisium includes a very customizable homepage slider that gracefully adapts to smaller screens—perfect to showcase your products and services.
The homepage allows you to display up to four Services blocks, and you can choose between bitmap or webfont icons.
Ellisium also includes “Call to Action” and “Page Hero” sections to grab your visitors attention, a smart sticky sidebar, and a lot more.
Ellisium comes with a versatile homepage slider that lets you feature images, alongside a short title and description, plus a “click me” button, for each one of the slides. It adapts well to mobile so your content is never hard to read, and you can position your images to the right or left, or have them cover the whole slide. It’s powered by the awesome FlexSlider and it’s touch friendly.
Ellisium uses webfont icons for most of its interface, and high resolution image sprites for a few elements, so your website will look awesome and crisp on any device.
Smart Sticky Sidebar
The sticky sidebar on the left side keeps you company as you scroll down the page and it degrades gracefully on small screens, turning itself into a masonry arrange of widgets below your important content and, of course, it can be disabled at any time.
You can optionally “pin” the footer, so it hides behind the main content and it’s revealed as you reach the bottom of the page. This behaviour is enable by default but you can choose to deactivate if you prefer a more traditional footer.
Responsive, Flexible Navigation
The navigation bar gracefully turns into a stylish multi level dropdown menu below a certain screen width, which you can even define yourself.
You can display up to four services blocks, each with their own bitmap or webfont icon, title, description and clickable button. You can upload your own bitmap icons, or choose from 48 glyphs from the Linecon icon set, which is included out of the box.
Page Hero and Call-to-Action
These blocks of content are useful to greet and engage your visitors. You can display the “call-to-action” block with a clickable button, below the homepage slider. The page hero can be shown on permalinks pages or, if you choose not to use the slider, on the index page as well.
Touch Device Friendly Image Lightbox
You can optionally open your images—on photo and photoset posts—using the included touchTouch plugin, one of the best lightbox solutions for both desktop and mobile devices
Ellisium includes the following widgets: search, about, browse (tags), twitter, flickr, dribbble and instagram feeds, social, ask, and up to three text widgets you can use to display contact information or to enter custom code or buttons. Widgets are displayed by default on the right sidebar, but you can move them to the footer individually and even set the order in which they appear.
Sharing Made Easy
Each post can have its own interactive buttons, which include: “like”, “reblog”, and a “share” button that allows you to send the post to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and for relevant post types, Pinterest.
Photosets As Sliders
You photosets will display as image sliders, and images can be viewed in their entire glory using the lightbox. You can choose to have the regular “rectangular dots” controls or the “image thumbnails” navigation for the post sliders.
Ellisium also includes:
- Google Web Fonts for headings other prominent blocks of text.
- User created pages.
- Disqus commenting system on permalink pages.
- Custom user defined items on the navigation menu.
- Normal and high definition image logo with type fallback if you fail to upload an image for the logo.
- Compatibility with most modern browsers, including Internet Explorer 8.
