Some Top Features : Performag WordPress Theme
Floating Menu / Header : The header looks awesome with solid and bold color style which shows your brand logo on the top left corner. Just below the header, yo will see your primary navigation menu having all links added form menu customization page. The good part about menu is it comes with floating mode so it stays visible always when user scrolls on the site.
Another good part is MegaMenu type menu design which shows multiple columns and category sections under drop-down. Hence, user can hover on the category links to see featured posts and custom links from desired sections. This type of menu design can not only impress visitors but also help them browse many top level pages and categories easily.
The navigation bar can show-off extra elements like social share buttons, search box etc. So visitors can search articles or access your social presence from one place.
Slideshow Post Type : This is another big feature of Performag theme which creates nice slideshow for all images. It’s really hard to display many images using traditional blog post formats. So designers, travel photographers and creative bloggers can choose slideshow post type to create single gallery slider for all selected images.
The gallery slider shows a view port to display images with banner (top), share buttons (bottom left), and links to check next and previous slides. So can make sure that user can see banner (top left, right), social share icons and slide navigation buttons.

Ad Management Options : The back-end shows “Thrive Ad Group” panel which has options to choose different Ad locations. The theme permits you to display Ads inside posts, sidebar, frontpage (between articles). It is more than showing ads as you can choose clear and detailed Ad targeting options. The Ad location list helps you to display Ads at Beginning, After “X” (Certain) paragraphs, After “X” (certain) images or at the end of the post.
Moreover, you can select Ad visibility for posts or pages. When you choose Post for Ad integration then you can select one or multiple groups of categories or tags. None of the marketing WordPress themes in the market provides these much flexibility for Ad integration. Once you add multiple Ads for any Ad group then it will automatically rotate ads on the website.
Mobile Ad support is also provided so your magazine platform will show responsive ads for smart phones and all small size devices. It will make sure that you are earning revenue from all types of visitors. Non even a premium Ad management plugins offer these many features.
Social Share Options : This feature is integrated on all sections including homepage, blog page and single articles. The Performag WordPress theme shows share buttons with total count counts on homepage with hover effect. If you check blog listing page then it combines share buttons with all featured post entries. And single articles also shows social share icons below post title on right side.
The good thing about floating navigation bar is that it shows “Social share” links instead of menu links when you scroll on articles. So user will always be in connection with share buttons while reading articles. The floating menu again shows menu links instead of share buttons when user scroll to the bottom of article.
