Focal Point is a one or two-column photo portfolio theme for WordPress built atop our Base theme framework. The design and functionality was conceived from feedback from our users. When you speak, we listen. Then we build!
Focal Point includes four optional styles to choose from (Centered, Centered Dark, Compact, Compact Dark) so you can easily change between light and dark, centered or top right menu navigation. The homepage includes a special app, called Category Post Slider, which is perfect for displaying posts from your photoblog, blog or iPhone gallery beneath the main homepage area. The screenshot and the demo site both use our free GPP Welcome Message and GPP Slideshow plugins in the Home widgetized area.
- Automatic theme updates – When a new version is released, you can update automatically from your WordPress Dashboard with one click. You must have a valid license key (available on your Member Dashboard for paid subscribers) and use Base 1.1 or higher. Booya!
- Category Post Slider App – Display posts in a horizontally scrolling list. Perfect for displaying a photoblog or iPhone gallery.
- Four Alternative Stylesheets – Choose from Centered, Centered Dark, Compact, Compact Dark styles so you can easily change between light and dark colors, centered or top right menu navigation.
- Widgetized Areas – Up to 18 widgetized areas when paired with our GPP Base Hook Widgets plugin. By default, Focal Point has six optional widgetized areas (Home, Sidebar and four Footer Widget areas)
- Custom Fonts – Want to change your font, no problem!
- Custom CSS – Easily add custom CSS to your theme options panel. This future-proofs your customizations.
- Shortcodes – These allow you to easily add column layouts, boxes and buttons to your posts and pages without modifying CSS, HTML or PHP.
- Drop Down Menu – Nestle links inside parent or child menu links for a clean, intuitive design.
- Blog Page Template – Display all blog posts on a separate page. This helps maintain clear separation between your portfolio and blog posts.
