Review – Black Olive from Angie Makes is a latest multi purpose blog WordPress theme made for fashion related blogs. The Black Olive WordPress theme looks modern and clean to attract all types of readers. If we talk little about customization then it has simple and easy to handle customization section which can be operated by novice and advanced users. The installation process hardly takes few minutes and in just no time you can have your blog or content featuring website in to time. The options page let’s you custom fonts to improve the readability of the blog posts, may be you can try to add fancy title fonts and simple font for regular body area.
Custom Logo Mode : When you will open “Header” options tag from back-end options you will get two ways to display Logo at the top of the website. First you can upload logo image from PC and if you don’t upload logo then Black Olive theme will automatically display website title as header. With this section you are given special typography customization box to select font to make your Logo text look unique and attractive.
Canvas Gallery Options : This is a special gallery management option provided by Black Olive WordPress theme to help you choose suitable gallery layouts like 3 columns, 8 columns or gallery carousel. When you have best collection of photo gallery you will find this feature extremely useful. The only work that is needed from your side is uploading of photos to media library and insert those photos to your gallery post. Thumbnail resizing and presentation is taken care by theme options itself.
Menus : The Black Olive WordPress theme presents menu in creative style where it is normally visible under header logo but when you starts scrolling through page you will still find menu-bar sticked on header and rest of the part will go invisible. This feature is provided to offer flexibility to access best categories or links anytime that is displayed on the menu bar. On the other hand it is powered by WP 3.0 menu system so that you can add your own menu-bar with drag and drop. Drop-down list of categories falls smoothly which shows the smoothness of this theme.
Multimedia Support : Black Olive WordPress theme has three distinct gallery presentation style which are slider gallery style, masonry gallery style and carousel gallery style which is my favorite. The videos can be featured by embedding codes for YouTube, Metacafe and other videos hosting service, that means mobile and tablet users can enjoy videos in responsive style. Under every post you will find custom sharing buttons for social media websites like Pinterest, Google Plus, Facebook and many more. Hence this is the proof that this modern blogging theme will not fail even if you are a multimedia blogger.
