Nexus WordPress Theme
I’m a big fan of Elegant Themes theme pack for WordPress – usually, the themes that they offer are very well-made, super-simple to configure and customize , and above all, the themes look absolutely fantastic! And lets not forget that the theme pack is incredibly cheap and excellent value for money!
Elegant Themes just added a brand-new theme to their arsenal, called the Nexus WordPress theme. It’s a magazine-style WordPress theme that looks brilliant, and is highly-customizable. It is also quite feature-rich and comes with stuff such as custom-widgets and content-modules, giving you complete control over your page and your website.
The layout of the Nexus theme is perhaps its strongest selling-point. The theme has a strict grid, typographical hierarchy and a clean layout that allows you to put up a lot of of content and present it to the reader in a clear and structured manner.
The theme comes with a beautiful navigation bar, and the navbar is also the place where you can add social buttons linking back to your Facebook or Twitter profiles.
Each content element on the Nexus theme looks stunning, and hovering the mouse over brings up the post title as well as a few lines of text right on top of the post thumbnail. This combination is not only quite intuitive, but is very visually-pleasing as well.
The theme comes with many custom/purpose-built widgets as well. I particularly liked the Recent/Popular/Random posts widget, that displays all your recent and popular posts right on your home page or landing page, increasing visitor engagement and reducing the bounce-rate on your website.
But perhaps the best part about the Nexus WordPress theme is it's amazing customizability – the theme can be configured and customized very easily through the Elegant Themes's brilliantly-designed Dashboard. You can easily change background image, color schemes, layout settings, navigation settings, and font – among other things – from the Dashboard with just a few mouse-clicks and without the need to know any complicated languages or code (such as CSS or HTML).
This means that just about anyone who uses WordPress can easily configure and tweak things around with the Nexus theme for WordPress.
Other notable features includes a responsive design: a very important and an often-overlooked feature when it comes to WordPress themes. The Nexus theme, like many other themes in the Elegant Themes pack, has a completely responsive design, which means that your theme will will display beautifully and intuitively on all devices – including laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablet PCs. This is important because it makes for a much more user-friendly browsing experience for visitors coming on your website from smartphones and devices such as the iPad.
Like many other Elegant Themes, Nexus theme also comes with the ability to use page templates on different pages on your website.
At the end of the day, the Nexus WordPress theme is easily one of Elegant Themes's crown jewels, and perhaps one of their best themes to date!
