Why You Should Select Slash
If you visit the the more info page, you will see that the developers have stated exactly 6 reasons why you should select this theme. They are: fullscreen slideshow, masonry layout, sortable portfolio, 3 blog post formats and 8 custom widgets, customization, great documentation. If you think about it, those are really good reasons to choose Slash. But let’s dig a bit deeper and see what the theme can really do.
When we first saw the demo, we thought that it looked a bit metallic. Perhaps there is a reference between the name of the theme and the rock guitar player. Whether this is true or not, the theme looks very good. As you can see, it’s a perfect combination of a layout for photos and a blog. You can even use the theme for a magazine.
Customizing the homepage is very easy. Why are we mentioning this? Homepages are the first thing that people see about your website. If you do not have a good one, then the chances are that you are going to lose some of your visitors. This is why it’s important to have a homepage which is both nicely designed and branded. Just visit the admin panel and the live customizer and you will be able to create the homepage that your portfolio deserves.
The theme is fully responsive and it’s compatible with all of the major browsers and many of their older versions. That’s always great news for developers and website owners. People are using many different internet browsers and the more of them you support – the lesser the number of people that will have problems with viewing your website.
Overall, we thought that the demo was really nice to browse through. It gives you a really good perspective on the photographs and the layout is really good. The sortable portfolio feature is really nice and the fact that it’s powered by AJAX means that you won’t have to reload the page to see the results.
Slash is SEO ready. There are tools, within the theme, that will allow you to edit the SEO properties, like titles and meta tags, in order for you to rank higher up in the search engines. The clean code with which the theme was built also contributes to the SEO optimization a lot.
The documentation of the theme is extensive. It has every possible aspect of the theme covered. That’s good news for people who don’t have much experience with WordPress. The information in the documentation is going to help you both get a better understanding of the theme, as well as learn WordPress at the same time.
Customer support is also at a very high level. You can write an email and expect an answer within 24 hours. The responses are always up to the point and you can say that the person that you are talking to wants to help you. Overall, we have very good impressions from both the theme and the people behind it. This is why we recommend that you took a look – you’ll love it.
