After all the positive feedback we received following the release of our first theme “Launch”, we decided it was time to release our next free theme — Palmas
A great choice for people who love to write, Palmas is a blogging theme at heart. It’s simple, elegant, easy to navigate and makes great use of whitespace. And if you take a lot of photographs, you’ll love the use of a large featured image slider that occupies much of the homepage.
Starting from the top, Palmas relies on a full-width header that features a customizable background image and centered logo.
The home page features a carousel slider which places a large featured image front and center. Each image being linked to the post URL and supporting text is kept to a minimum — just a title and basic meta information. Below the slider you’ll find a list of popular posts that again rely on a simple featured image and post title — offering very little in the way of distractions.
A little further down the page, you’ll find an equally simple but attractive masonry blog layout and a footer that contains a background image, navigation and a call-to-action. It’s simplicity at its best.
Key Features of our Palmas Theme include:
- Effective use of white space and large featured images
- Page templates include a homepage and blog layout
- Customizable sidebar widgets
- Theme customizations using the built-in WordPress customizer
- Use of breadcrumbs
- Mobile responsive design looks great on any device
