There are not many themes that have a better design and back-end than Focal. This is a fully responsive theme that best suits photographers. But it’s so nice that many more creatives are using it for different purposes.
One of the most important features of the theme is the fullscreen gallery. This is something that every well-known online portfolio has. This is one of those small details that can change your visitors’ opinion from “good” to “excellent”. Also, the theme is powered by the Heroic manager. This is a hefty tool that will allow you to manage your images and your galleries. Even though WordPress does have its own media manager, this is a tool that is oriented towards creatives. It gives you a more organized and structured way of managing your visual content.
Having a portfolio is all about uniqueness and expressing yourself. This is why Focal has an enhanced live customizer. Apart from the general options, you can also control fonts, colors, layouts, sidebar/header/footer widgets and many more. The live customizer is the place where you will want to start building your portfolio.
After you’re done with the live customizer, you should go on to the admin panel and change some settings there as well. Everything there is pretty self-explanatory, even if you don’t have much experience with WordPress. There are many tabs in the panel that allow you to edit different aspects of the theme.
Focal comes with custom post types to ensure that you spend only a small part of your time designing how your pages are going to look. They are great templates and do most of the work for you.
To conclude we want to say that the theme has very clean code which will not cause you any problems. Entirely based on HTML5 and CSS3, the theme is supported by every major browser out there. Focal is translation ready and comes with the .po/.mo files. Just plug them in the WPML plugin and you can start translating your website into any language (including RTL languages). Focal has a great documentation which has valuable information about the theme. If you ever have any problems, contact support and you will receive a prompt answer.
