Website is the main platform to showcase your work and products and if you fail to present your work in better way then all your efforts goes useless when it comes to get new customers.
Zigzagpress Gallery WordPress Theme brings all benefits of Genesis framework as it is a child theme develop to work on this well known WP framework. The framework is powered by the team of StudioPress who is famous for it’s great collection of child themes and customer support. The homepage of this theme covers only full-screen slideshow nothing else, there is no sidebar, footer or other content modules available on the homepage. The design of menu-bar is totally different, right below logo image there is a button to access categories from menu section. The button seems like an app button of mobile that we see on smart phones.
The Gallery child theme for Genesis framework can present posts or pages with three layouts and you can choose layout from post editor while creating posts. There is no limit to create pages on your website like portfolio page, about page, service page, blog section and more. The gallery section can be developed with 2 columns, 3 columns, 4 columns and full width layout too. As you increase columns on page layout the thumbnails size will be reduced. Clicking on portfolio image will will launch slideshow with navigation buttons and to escape from slideshow you can use close button or escape key from your keyboard. Dark color scheme on the default design is main attraction of this portfolio theme.
Header bar of Gallery WordPress theme is set on the left side in static mode, that means static sidebar will be always visible while scrolling on the page. This way user will have access to sidebar menu and widgets even while scrolling on long pages or posts. Full-screen slideshow is always running on the background, hence while you are on blog page or any other section you will get to see slideshow because of transparent color skin used between slideshow and current background. Flickr gallery widget is important element of this premium genesis theme and this plugin will share Flickr photos on your sidebar to get attention from the website visitors.
