Theme customization is about to take a GIANT leap forward.
This week’s sneak peek is for our soon-to-be launched Instamate WordPress theme. Instamate includes features never seen before in any of our themes including live theme customization previews, optional integration with Instagram and Twitter and has big, minimalist slideshows that we know you all love. Instamate allows for a portfolio or blog-style homepage, so take a pick!
Checkout this video sneak peek to see Instamate in action:
Live Theme Customizer
The live theme customizer is seriously addictive and we think you’re gonna absolutely love it. Change background colors, upload a custom header image, or choose between over 350 Google fonts and see the changes happen instantaneously, live on the page before clicking save. So sweet!
Horizontal, Vertical or Square Thumbnails
Quickly change between horizontal , vertical or square thumbnails on the Live Theme Customizer page or on the Theme Options page. If you are a portrait photographer, this theme is for you. If you are a landscape photographer, well, ditto. Prefer square thumbnails? We got you covered.
Optional Instagram Integration
I’m seriously addicted to Instagram. When I started building this theme, I knew that integration with Instagram was a must. Here’s how it works. When you use the theme in conjunction with the Instagrate plugin, you’ll be able to upload an image to Instagram from your phone, and the image will be cross-posted to your WordPress site by creating a new post with the Image Post format. The theme’s proportions fit Instagram photos perfectly. It’s magic.
Look for the ability to download the Instamate theme if you’re a paid Graph Paper Press member next week.
