New Features & Extras To Be Excited About
Porto II is our most customizable theme released in 2017. We have packed close to a 1000 different layout options that you can create by combining and tweaking the blocks and design elements included with this theme. You’ll be excited to find out that apart from the fully customizable layouts, page blocks, colors, fonts and icons – we’ve also added more flexibility to your headers and footers. That’s right, you can have more than one! Get creative with Call to Actions (CTAs) and quick links. Or use this feature to create a Landing / Splash page, which separates your portfolio into Wedding, Portrait, Editorial or Boudoir galleries (as in this example), to masterfully guide your site visitors through your work. Use just a slider with a menu, or create a full length page.
The extra freedom with footers and headers, offers you the possibility to include more links (newsletter, social icons, contact info, etc) on some pages, while keeping the rest minimal and clean. However, if you prefer the traditional, one header and footer design across all pages – that option remains at your disposal as well.
There are over 50 beautiful page blocks, to help you bring your most exciting and unusual ideas to life. Tweak the predefined layouts or craft your own page structure by dragging and dropping the blocks. Get that custom feel for your website, with this elegant, yet simple to use out of the box theme.
And lastly, have you see those design details? Typography elements? Classic elegance at its best? Imagine your work displayed on a website like that!
