Almost every major premium WordPress theme company has either released a new template in 2013 or is working toward that goal as we approach the final week of January. ThemeFuse.com has decided to open its yearly catalog with a new travel agency theme called Voyage, which offers a large view port Featured Content Slider, plenty of widgetized regions, and loads of filterable modules within its homepage.
Last week, ThemeFuse published a blog post outlining what customers can expect from the new commercial offering. “This month’s new theme is a powerful WordPress template in the form of a Travel Agency website. Lots of work went into building it from the ground up with industry specific functionalities like filters, powerful searches and tags for easy finding. It caters to everyone who needs a travel agency website that has every bell & whistle you could think of and need. Searching for the right vacation is a breeze with our cool and powerful filters and functionalities.
The theme has lots of pages for showcasing the holidays, city-breaks and other types of offers that you would like to post on the website. We also bundle it with a Blog and Contact page, as well as the whole pack of Shortcodes we have already acustmed you with.”
Voyage Content Slider
As soon as you get your first glimpse of the Voyage demo (see bottom of this article for link), you’ll notice its Featured Content Slider and how it uses hi-resolution photographic material and displays it in an extra large view port. The entries can be programmed from the back-end to automatically rotate, with the current entry being shown in a different text color scheme at the bottom of the slider. Default configuration allows for a brief title and description while drawing visitors’ focus toward the image itself.
Individuals who visit travel sites often rely on filtering modules to find what they’re looking for as quickly as possible. Demands on travel websites are similar to the expectations front-end users have for online real estate agencies. Potential customers want to focus their search as much as possible while still having a reasonable amount of content to choose from. With Voyage by ThemeFuse, the webmaster can place filters directly on the homepage and allow readers to use them for any number of purposes in order to perform specific searches.
The ability to input locations, dates, price ranges, and more can act as the engine behind your travel agency website. Provided you have enough categorical content to fit your customers’ needs, Voyage can prove to be a huge upgrade over most platforms that are currently in use.
Separate Blog Feed With Optional Sidebar
Thanks to various custom page templates, Voyage can be used to publish a separate blog feed that will stand out from the homepage content. In this format, entries are located on the left-hand side (complete with image, title, excerpt and read more link) while the main filters are placed within the right-hand sidebar.
Clicking anywhere on the image or title will take the reader directly to the full post. Note that the sidebar widgets can be replaced by social media feeds, recent posts, etc.
Responsive Design With Shortcodes
It is worth noting that Voyage comes with a fully responsive design that will automatically adjust your site’s content to the fit smaller screen sizes tablet computers and mobile devices.
A complete collection of shortcodes is included with the download; offering a wide variety of enhancements ranging from buttons to LightBox effects.
