Features & Functionalities

Franz Josef is built drawing from the vast development experience of previous themes. Part of that experience has lent us the ability to recognise the crucial features and functionalities that would be most useful to our theme’s users. Much of these features come as a result of feature requests and suggestions by the users themselves, so what you want is what we delivered.

This page briefly highlights just some of the many features and functionalities that come with the theme.


Adapts to any device

Combining responsive web design with the latest in web technologies – HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, to name a few – Franz Josef fully leverages the latest capabilities of modern browsers and mobile devices to bring your audience stunning presentation every time, no matter the device.


Solid framework, highly extensible

Franz Josef is built on Bootstrap, the solid mobile-first framework that took the world by storm and never left. It allows Franz Josef to easily and efficiently scale your websites and applications with a single code base, from phones to tablets to desktops with CSS media queries.

With Franz Josef, you have the freedom to quickly and efficiently deploy beautiful layout and designs without needing to know much about coding.


Razer-sharp clarity, clear readability

Franz Josef uses FontAwesome, a vector-based set of icons. This means that the edges and curves of all the icons that the theme uses will actually become sharper the higher your screen resolution goes. Not only that, you also get more than 500 ready-made icons that can be used in your content straight out of the box.

On top of that, clear and effective typography ensures that your content maintains its high readability, no matter on what device it is being displayed on, or the character sets that you use.


Translation & RTL-ready

No matter what language your audience speaks, Franz Josef ensures that you can translate every text in the theme into any number of languages.

The theme is also fully compatible with right-to-left languages, so that no language is left behind.
