Photolux is an elegant Portfolio & Photography theme which suits photographers the best. Powered by Pexeto Panel, which adds hundreds of different options for modifying any aspect of the theme – it suits both novice and advanced WordPress site builders.
With Dark, Light and Transparent skins and extensive back-end options, this portfolio theme is one of the best out there. There are many customization options and many different post/page/gallery types and layouts from which you can choose.
Photolux is Always Improving
Picking a theme is much more than just getting something that looks good. There are other things that you should worry about. For instance, a theme that looks amazing, but gets no updates is practically useless. In no more than 6 months, your theme is going to be irrelevant and most likely won’t be supported by WordPress.
But Photolux isn’t a theme like that. The theme has been released way back in 2011, but ever since then the developers have been rolling out many updates. The theme is currently compatible with the latest version of WordPress and most of the plugins that are available today.
Photolux is Trying to Be the Best
Photolux’s developers aren’t satisfying themselves with what they have. Those constant updates are also being released so that the theme stays competitive on the market. This is one of the reasons why they are using powerful tools, like the Pexeto panel. This is one of the most popular frameworks for admin panels. It has many options that give you enormous control over how the theme is going to look and perform.
To keep up with the latest technologies, Photolux are also using AJAX for loading of the galleries. In other words, this is a feature which is going to speed up the loading of your pages, reduce the amount of bandwidth used, while still bringing a great browsing experience to your visitors. Also, apart from the loading, AJAX gives your visitors the opportunity of opening images in lightboxes, play videos in lightboxes, and opening content in new pages.
While in 2011 responsiveness was not something that was considered important, nowadays that’s crucial. Four years later, smartphones and tablets have greatly developed, and there are also new display technologies (4K is the latest big thing). The different standards are becoming too many and responsiveness is, perhaps, the only possible way of creating one website which is going to meet the requirements of different screens. This is why Photolux has been made responsive, even though not originally so.
Photolux is not just any theme. It’s a theme which gets perpetual updates and it always on par with the latest web trends. There are many predefined portfolio and gallery styles which are going to help you build your gallery in the matter of a few minutes.
Font management, fullscreen image display, styling buttons, and other features which allow you to personalize your website are executed perfectly. They are very easy to use but if you have any problems, you can always read the documentation. There you are going to find a lot of useful information, as well as tips and tricks. If you still have problems, you can always call support. They answer promptly on email.
