Flexible by Elegant Themes is an extremely versatile premium WordPress theme from top to bottom that has multimedia capabilities coupled with a minimalistic style to ensure your content is the main feature.
Install Flexible WordPress Theme
Installing the Flexible WordPress theme onto your website will require a yearly subscription to Elegant Themes. As a subscriber, you will have full access to all premium products along with timely support and updates. Once you have subscribed, scroll down the members page and find the Flexible icon. Click the Download link to the right and then the Theme Package option from the popup window, then save the corresponding .zip folder to your hard drive.
Next, go into the wp-admin page (Dashboard area) of your website and click on the Appearance > Themes tab located on the left-hand side. This will load a separate window, and you will need to click the Install Themes tab at the top followed by the Upload link below that in order to bring up an empty browse box. Place your Flexible .zip file inside the box and click Install Now and your theme will begin unpacking.
Once the theme has finished installing, click Activate if you are ready to make it the default theme for your website.
All that’s left to do now is to go into the ePanel, which you can do by clicking the Flexible Theme Options link as shown in the screenshot below.
Versatility With A Minimalistic Style
As far as graphics go, Flexible does its best to “stay out of the way” so your visitors are able to focus the vast amount of their attention on your content. When multiple categories are listed under the page-based CMS hierarchy, dropdown menus will appear.
Below the top navigation bar you will find the Featured Homepage Slider, which can be programmed to scroll through as many slides as needed with fully customizable animation speed. Clicking-through on the image will take the reader to the actual post.
Next, there is room for two lines of Quote Text (the second line smaller than the first) which will lead into “More Work” and “More Posts” links that can be configured from the General Settings > Homepage ePanel tab.
A second Homepage Content Area can be placed underneath the recent work thumbnails as shown below.
Flexible is Fully Responsive
Flexible is a 100% Responsive WordPress Theme; meaning your site’s content will automatically adjust to the screen size of each visitor. Regardless of whether the website is being viewed from a large, hi-res desktop monitor or a mobile device, your potential clients will not be forced to scroll from side-to-side in order to find what they’re looking for.
Unlimited Color Schemes, Widgetized Right Sidebar
There are an unlimited amount of color schemes that come with the Flexible premium WordPress theme download. When you activate Flexible on your website, you will have access to the Customization Toolbar which will give the webmaster one-click control over colors (earth tones only), textures and fonts.
The Right Sidebar is fully widgetized and can be used to place custom widgets along with 125×125 ad banners from the Widgets tab.
When a visitor clicks-through to view a full post, he/she will see either a large thumbnail image or an embedded video, as Flexible has multimedia capabilities
Versatility Above All Else
Flexible is arguably the most versatile Elegant Themes premium product available. With an ajax-powered multimedia gallery, unlimited color schemes, full shortcodes collection, featured content slider and fully responsive programming, Flexible is a solid download that could very well be worth the Elegant Themes yearly subscription price all on its own.
