Side – Full Width Creative WordPress Theme (Portfolio)
Hey great thanks Tom.
This has been one, if not the most, pleasant theme purchases I have ever had!
derekmlacey – Ebor WP Theme
Welcome to Side!
Side is a perfect theme for agencies, individuals, freelancers or bloggers looking for something more simple and straight forward, but packing a lot of hidden power. Side comes packed with Revolution slider for free ($15 value) as well as loads of other goodies.
The homepage of side is totally customisable, each post or portfolio shown there is tagged as a featured post and then is shown on the homepage accordingly. Making it really easy to swap and change your homepage posts, weekly, monthly, whenever you want!
Beautiful, Simple and Minimal
Side has loads of great features that make it a must have, but its crowning glory is ease of use. Side is a look back to simpler WordPress themes, easy to use, beautifully simply to maintain but still fully featured with all the right stuff that you need, and none of what you don’t.
Side uses a new custom field in the WordPress Customiser, a google font selector. Instead of offering 500+ fonts that you will never look at, we give you 10 perfectly crafted, hand picked fonts that are just right for Side. More will be added over the themes lifetime, but only if they look perfect in the theme. Adding your own fonts is super easy if this isn’t enough though. Just see the google fonts link at the bottom of this description.
The Stuff You Need, Without the Bloat
Side comes with a built in Coming Soon Page, a built in Maintenance Page, Beautiful fonts to choose from and full support for Contact Form 7. Then you can extend the theme with the included plugins, Ebor-Portfolio to give you a portfolio post type and all the benefits of that. Revolution Slider if you want to spice up your site a little. We even include a short code plugin, but you don’t have to use it, if you’ve already got your own favourite short code plugin, then just use that instead. Side is designed to keep things simple for you. Side also comes with it’s own built in ‘likes’ system and social sharing buttons. Neat!
