ElegantThemes has become one of the most popular WordPress theme marketplaces. The company currently sells over 80 unique and exclusive premium themes. The themes are also packed with additional features, including shortcodes, a variety of theme options and page templates. This functionality is why ElegantThemes is so well matched with NettSite.
There are many theme marketplaces for WordPress, so it can be difficult to know which to trust. Here are a few reasons why ElegantThemes products are rated so highly.
Powerful ePanels Theme Options
ElegantThemes products all come with a variety of settings that can be edited without touching a line of code. If you don’t understand PHP, HTML and CSS, or just want to edit settings quickly, the Elegant Themes control panel makes customizing your site much easier. Whether you want to change a color scheme, edit the navigation panel, alter the layout of your site or manage SEO options, many settings can be customized with the Elegant Themes ePanel. Even if you’re a professional web designer, being able to edit settings quickly is always welcome.
Predefined Page Templates
With most themes, if you want to add a gallery or sitemap page you need to install an additional plugin. Standard themes often don’t support multiple page templates. Elegant Themes products do support this feature, and you can switch between them simply by selecting from a list. Layouts for each page can also be set individually. Examples of page templates include image galleries, contact forms, member login pages and full width pages. Page templates provide a much greater control over how your content is displayed.
Large Shortcodes Collection
ElegantThemes products include shortcodes for buttons, boxes, toggled and tabbed content, slideshows and image sliders. You can also create columns with shortcodes and add author info to a post.
Variety of Layouts
ElegantThemes understand that WordPress is far more than just a blogging platform. Many of the company’s themes aren’t designed for basic blogs. Magazine themes, for example, are perfect for large content sites that display a variety of media. Portfolio themes are far less cluttered, and are designed to show off recent projects with a simple and crisp design. Whether you’re using WordPress for a blog, multimedia portal or personal site, there’s sure to be an ElegantThemes product that fits your requirements.
