Illuminate - Minimalist & Creative WordPress Theme

Illuminate - Minimalist & Creative WordPress Theme

WP 3.8 Ready!

Illuminate offers a sleek, sophisticated, clean WordPress theme packed with options and features that make it slick and easy to get your site started off with class. Want to know what it has? Of course you do…

It has an exclusive, custom jQuery slider that you cannot find anywhere else...I know this because it was created specially for Illuminate. So that’s cool. If you want to change the slider to something a little different, Illuminate includes Slicebox slider, which is a newer slider from codrops – and also super cool.


I bought this theme for a new blog that’s been up for a few weeks now, and I’ve gotten several compliments on the design already! As with all new themes, took a bit to learn the ins and outs and how to do everything, but I’m very, very happy with this purchase and would recommend this theme to anyone considering it. —dreamingiris

Aside from the slider options, you’ve got two menu options. A premium PBK Mega Menu for WordPress plugin from CGpbk, a plugin that was deservedly featured at Code Canyon. If you don’t need a Mega Menu you can switch over to another jQuery menu that has dropdown functionality as well…and also looks classy.

Aside from these options, you have plenty more. Here’s a relatively full list:
