To your visitors don’t have to wait when they want to browse heavy gallery pages. Whether it is homepage, blog page or gallery page, you can visit all sections with great speed.
The Memories theme can work for all multiple use, that means bloggers can also use it to post photos with articles. Or you can start a photography website with blog section. We liked responsive design as it proved best when tested on tablet, smart phone and iPad devices. Not all templates are powered by truly responsive layout, but CSSIgniter always creates best templates.
The theme has CSSIgniter options panel, from where you can manage gallery, color style, layouts and everything. You can select among various color skins and gallery layout styles. The customizer options makes it very easier to edit website layout, navigation, header and everything.

Homepage Setup :
This is important task as homepage can be big impact on visitors and search engines too. The theme let’s you choose between 2 types of front-page : 1) Blog style or 2) Slider oriented page. If you just want to display latest blog posts on homepage then you don’t need to do anything. You will see featured posts entries on homepage as you start releasing articles.
But If you want to create slider oriented page as shown in demo, then you need to follow certain method (explained in documentation guide). Memories offers custom page attributes called “Front-Page”. Once you choose this, you will get a slider based homepage for your photo gallery website. The back-end options help you to add contents into slider and manage entire slider functionality.
