Earlier this week, WordPress theme company ThemeFuse launched its newest premium download and made it available to the public. MetroVibes is custom designed by the ThemeFuse team to serve as a portfolio and/or creative agency website platform and has many goodies packaged within that can make a beginning webmaster’s job much easier thanks to its fluid back end controls. As ThemeFuse states in many of its marketing campaigns, the firm makes themes for people, not programmers.
The MetroVibes theme places a heavy emphasis on company portfolios from the very first moment a new visitor arrives. One look at the homepage within the Live Demo and you’ll see that the traditional logo and top navigation bar are immediately followed by a Portfolio Feed rather than a featured content slider. This section comes with LightBox effects to give the front-end user a more interactive feel while allowing him/her to view additional information whenever a particular item is being moused over. Below the main area is a region where you can place your firm’s introductory text in order to give potential clients a general summary of the services on offer.
There is a three column section dedicated to homepage blurbs that can used to provide a sort of features list for clients to view while browsing a website that uses the MetroVibes theme. The point of these is to give small snippets of information to customers on either the products that are being marketed or how your company can assist those who are visiting. Each blurb comes with its own icons, description text, plus a call to action button at the bottom when can be clicked on to go through to the page in question.
There is even a separate “Clients” testimonials module just below the blurbs that goes even further when it comes to attracting customers and sharing past experiences with those who may be in need of receiving first hand recommendations before moving forward to a formal email or phone call. Within the testimonials module, you can highlight the most important quotes provided by past clients and showcase them on the homepage for all to see.
There are the expected custom page templates included in the MetroVibes theme package that will enable even the most inexperience WordPress website owner to navigate the back end controls and create separate pages without a hitch. The page templates can be selected from the right-hand menu whenever creating and editing a page, and are highly useful if you’d like to publish an independent blog feed, gallery page, or post your contact info. The blog feed itself is laid out in a single column and can be configured to display the title, text excerpt, thumbnail image, publication date, category, and author name.
The MetroVibes WordPress theme has been designed with a responsive layout that is incorporated to automatically adjust to each front-end screen size regardless of whether your site is being viewed from a small mobile device such as an iPod Touch or a large desktop monitor.
Smart phones are frequently in use in today’s world, and having a way to cater to visitors who are on the go can enhance a firm’s chance for overall success. Those who are viewing your website from an iPhone, iPad, Android, Samsung Galaxy or similar mobile phone or tablet computer will receive a customized view that doesn’t require unnecessary thumb scrolling and tapping to navigate.
In summary, MetroVibes is a clean portfolio theme that can be used for a number of business purposes. To find out more about how the latest release from ThemeFuse will look while in action, visit the MetroVibes Live Demo Page.
