StrapPress: Premium Responsive Bootstrap WordPress Theme
In this review I’m going to take a look at what feature it offers and show you how to set it up.
Install The Theme
Upload the theme you receive after purchase and then visit “Appearance” > “Themes” to activate it :
Once the theme is activated, you will see a new menu item under “Appearance” called “Theme Options” where you can setup your theme :
Under the theme options, the first tab is for disabling certain theme elements such as breadcrumbs, featured homepage and the call to action button. By default the homepage is setup like a business site / landing page, if you disable it, it will appear like a regular blog theme.
You then have a standard logo upload box and the next tab is “Homepage” where y0u can configure the frontpage – you can enter a headline and strapline, text content and choose various button colors and sizes which are provided by the Twitter Bootstrap CSS.
Next up you have a tab to configure gallery settings, again you can choose button color and sizes, how many columns to use and title sizes etc :
The theme produces some nice looking galleries like this :
Next up you have the footer and webmaster tools sections – here you can enter custom footer text and paste your tracking codes for things like Google Analytics :
Finally, there is a social media icons section which you can enable or disable these in the header and footer, there is space for the following sites :
- Google +
Which look like this when added :
This is a nice clean theme and would make a great starting point for building a business website, the fact it is responsive and conforms to a number of display sizes is great.
The theme options panel is fairly comprehensive – A general user could customize the theme quite easily but for more indepth stuff you would need to know some CSS and HTML. The gallery section is really nice and so are individual pages, my only complaint is the blog page listing the entries – this looks a little untidy to me but could be easily fixed via CSS such as reducing the blog post title sizes and adding some padding between entries.
Overall if you are looking for a responsive theme to start your build with, I think this is a solid choice so check it out.
