If you’re a fan of ThemeForest.net, then chances are you’ve browsed through the marketplace’s “Popular” tab a few times to see which products have been getting the most purchase orders from customers.
The Avada WordPress theme, which was created just seven short months ago, is currently bringing in approximately 800 sales per week and has a solid hold on the top spot in the Weekly and 3 Month sales categories. On March 15th, Version 2.1.1 was released with a number of new features such as all shortcodes having a link target so links will open in a new window plus a new option for footer and header social media icons to open in a new window. New language translations for Czech, French, Portuguese and Polish have been added, as has an updated version of the Revolution and Flexslider plugins.
Avada, which was created by ThemeFusion, has obtained a 5 Star Rating from buyers (more than 1,000 votes) while accruing 14,457 purchases. The theme has received a ThemeForest Golden Paw all on its own with well over $500,000 in total sales (current price $45) while outperforming other massively popular downloads such as U-Design and Kallyas.
As one might expect, Avada comes with a fully responsive design that will automatically adjust your website’s content to fit the screens of smart phone and tablet computer users without having to go in an manipulate actual code. What’s more, the theme is Retina Ready with a number of premium sliders that can be implemented in various regions to add attractive display modules to enhance your content.
There are five header designs in all, and the intelligent Admin Panel is efficient and easy to use. You can use unlimited colors and fonts with the Avada theme, and it comes with more than 20 PSD files and support. It is compatible with the latest version of WordPress and will work properly on the Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera web browsers.
Perhaps the most eye-catching module contained within the Avada theme is its Flex Slider, which goes far beyond traditional scrolling animations by allowing webmasters to program the timing of different image elements to appear within an entry.
You might believe that the screenshot above contains only one image which was conveniently Photo Shopped together and then pasted into the photograph. However, the animated featured slider actually has the power to individually make the person appear first, followed by the title and description on the left, with the mobile device and WordPress logo graphics coming in at the very end. If you actually go to the Live Demo, you’ll see that these events are well-timed to bring a whole new level of depth to the featured slider.
From the Control Panel, you have complete authority over how to program all of the theme’s modules and make them function in a way that is both attractive and effective.
You can use Avada for just about any business purpose thanks to its flexibility. There are custom page templates for Image Galleries, Blog Feeds, Portfolios, About Us, Services, Prices, Features, Contact, FAQ, Full-Width and Sidebar Placement. By default, the homepage lays out its Blurbs section in four columns (single row) while adjusting the main news feed to three columns immediately below.
There is a Testimonials widget that can be inserted to give visitors a glance at what prior customers thought of your site’s product(s).
Since last August, this theme has received two dozen updates. If you would like to find out more about the Avada WordPress theme and its March 15th release of Version 2.1.1, go to the Avada Theme Page or see the Avada Live Demo.
