Features and Functionalities

The theme has had an extensive development and improvements in terms of features and functionalities. Much of these improvements come as a result of feature requests and suggestions by the theme’s users, which is what makes the theme so widely popular. What you want is what we delivered.

Plus, starting with version 1.3, you have the ability to export and import the theme’s options, making it easy to quickly deploy the theme across several sites, or publishing it online after development on your local environment.

This page briefly highlights some of the many features and functionalities that come with the theme. These highlights are by no means exhaustive – there’s just too many features to list them all!


Featured Slider

The Graphene theme has a built-in featured slider that is displayed in the front page.

With it, you can quickly and easily give prominence to the content or sections of your site that you wish to highlight.


Configurable columns

With Graphene, you can select up to three columns for your page layout. You can also resize the width of the individual columns to suit the needs of your site.

Didn’t we say that Graphene theme is one of the most customisable WordPress theme available?


Configurable Options

With Graphene, customisability comes as standard — Custom Header, Custom Background, Custom Menus, Custom Colours — plus a whole lot others.

AJAX-powered theme options page make configuring the theme’s settings quick and painless.


Custom Colours

Transform the theme’s colours to match your creative vibes — without messing with codes.

With colour pickers and instant previews, you’ll be done in a few minutes!


Print Stylesheet

Graphene theme includes a print stylesheet so that your visitors can print your site’s content — sans all the web features that aren’t useful on paper and ink.

A print icon is also readily available with the theme for your display on your posts and pages.


Extensible Widget Areas

On top of the default widget areas, the theme has built-in Action Hooks Widget Areas — a powerful feature that allows you to dynamically create new widget areas. This means you can easily place virtually any content anywhere in the theme using just the WordPress widgets system.


In Your Language

The Graphene theme has been translated into more than 35 languages — chances are good that your language is one of them.

Plus, it also has been certified to be compatible with WPML, so you can truly offer a multilingual site to your international visitors with Graphene.


Helpful 404 Error Page

When bytes went AWOL, Graphene doesn’t just display a cryptic 404 Not Found message.

It guesses what the visitor is looking for based on the URL and then performs an automated site search to help find the missing bytes.


Custom Shortcodes

Graphene has built-in shortcodes to further enhance the formatting of your content. They include the message blocks and the pullquote.
