Standard is a theme for almost any need. Use it as a minimalistic portfolio, trendy business theme, or a personal blog. More of a lightweight framework, than a dedicated theme, Standard allows that user to create a theme they want, without knowing a ton of code. The back-end administrator panel is where all of the action is packaged. But even right out the box, Standard offers a great, turn-key design that will fit many needs.
As the power of Standard is actually in its coded framework talking about those features would probably be better than talking about what features the main pages has, or how the page just looks great. The reason? With the coded framework and the multitude of options, it is hard to say exactly what the Standard theme looks like. It will reflect the personalities and the desires of the person that is creating the site at the time.
The header is a great basic header. Not too much going on, A navigation bar, Logo, and ad space; but with just the change of an option in the backend it is super easy to change the navigation bar for above the header, to below the header. Also, with this theme’s built in social media integration, it is easy to add icons to your navigation bar. Just add your username to the fields in the backend, and the corresponding icon will appear in the navigation bar. This is more than Twitter and Facebook integration. There are more than 10 coded integration buttons, to include Linkedin and Feedburner, that are easily placed with large icons where you want them most.
Another great option, especially if you are a freelancer, or you are looking at becoming a freelancer, is the author box. It’s already coded and with the use of a widget it makes it easy to highlight and frame your about you. As money makes this world go round, Standard comes equipped with great ad support, in the form of widgets. In the admin panel, just add the links to the ads you want from your favorite ad service, go to the widget section, add the widget to the sidebar, and you are up and running.
