What WE Liked In Milan Pro WordPress Theme
Unique Homepage : The flexible and widget optimized frontpage gives you more freedom than ever before. You can choose best stories to be featured on homepage and also highlight latest posts automatically. This 3rd party genesis theme was crafted with professional bloggers in mind. Therefore it offers a wide-homepage layout so that authors can highlight blog posts along with widgets (right side).
If you look near top of the Milan Pro homepage demo, then you will see a wide section which highlights featured story with image on left and text on right. The very next block highlights 4 articles on single row using “Genesis Featured Posts” widgets. The rest of the area highlights “latest posts” with simple excerpt style.
This way, home visitors can browse lots of stories right from homepage. If you want to create a successful magazine or blog platform then it must hae dynamic homepage and that’s what you are getting in this theme.
Main Features : Genesis Milan Pro – StudioPress
Header And Menu : This type of spacious header is only given with very few previous magazine themes. You must know that when you have custom header with colourful background and big logo image then readers are automatically attracted to your brand logo. The logo uploader will put your brand symbol in middle or you can also use text when don’t already have logo image.
Along with that you are also provided text box to enter tag-line message along with logo. Hence, you can enter some interesting brand quote or impressive words to bring smile on readers face.
If we draw our attention on top right corner then we can see a toggle button which is provided for menu-bar. This is called slide-in menu section which appears on screen only when user clicks this hamburger button. The menu-bar is not visible in default mode and therefore, visitors can see a clear and bold header section. This menu-button is also compatible on mobiles and other devices, so it’s great for people who uses hand held instruments.
Custom Fonts and Colors : The Milan Pro WordPress theme provides highly bold typography for heading area in default mode. Apart from that, it also comes with best fonts selected for body (paragraph), navigation and other areas. Most of the content background area is elegant so that visitors can see images and texts easily.
The customizer provides you with infinite color skins and lots of typography styling features. Hence, you can make your site look gorgeous just within no time.
Post Features : Just open any article from demo to see all special features provided with single post. The article contents are displayed on the middle of the page with sidebar on right side. The left portion highlights author image, date, tags and categories, which is normally displayed on bottom area by most of the magazine templates.
If you go down on single post, then bottom area has two more features which comes into highlight when user finish reading article. The first is “Next/Previous” post section which is also called “In Post Navigation” feature. This way, readers can jump on other posts without going back or forth.
Last is “Threaded Comments” box where readers can share their comments using their own views. The comments feature can trigger excitement among visitors to share their thoughts or questions between other readers or with author.
In-short, Milan Pro has been packed with best magazine and blogging features which requires no extra plugins. It has minimal yet stylish feature to impress your visitors with stunning font style. The theme let’s you share banners, social links, categories and other stuff using widgets.
