This is a review of VideoPro theme 1.0 by Theme Junkie – Hey up folks it’s been a long old while since we did a theme review here on the blog, we will be adding a few more of them over the next few months I’m happy to say, it’s important for us to share news and reviews of great WordPress themes, as well as tips on how to blog.
OK, I’m sure you’re all familiar with Theme Junkie and their collection of amazing themes; well they’ve just announced the release of a brand new theme called VideoPro 1.0
Drum roll please…
VideoPro theme is jam packed with feature-rich stuff people, ideal for all those of you looking to start that video blogging blog you’ve been dreaming about, ok maybe not dreaming about but you know what I mean… Let’s take a closer look.
VideoPro – Design & Layout
VideoPro theme boasts a clean and clutter free design, both on the outside and inside (high efficiency & clean PHP/HTML5/CSS, SEO semantic code). It almost has an old YouTube resemblance to it, so I can’t help to think perhaps the theme was somewhat inspired by it. Not the most eye-catching theme but nonetheless it’s pleasant on the eyes.
Anyhow at the top of the home page you have options for a super cool video content galley slider, which look pretty cool. So that means you can feature certain videos on your home page… The latest video posts follows below the slider on the home page with links to older posts, which make navigating around pretty effortless, just like on the home page of most conventional blogs.
There is a column on the left for your categorical menu with slide out sub categories, and a main menu at the top with drop-down menu.
At the very top of page you can add RSS, Google+, Twitter and Facebook ID’s for your subscribers.
The VideoPro theme also boasts a widgetized footer with 4 columns for you to play with.
Available page templates include –
- Contact Form
