In Ink ThemeTrust : Best Points
I was speechless when I viewed live front-page demo on my screen. It just took me little time to figure-out best points for this portfolio template. The notable part of this theme is default layout which shows projects on homepage. This theme presents portfolio template as homepage so all portfolio items will be highlighted directly on homepage.
Grid style layout is used to fine-tune portfolio board with thumbnails. So user will be able to view all projects in beautiful thumbnails grid. It still provides post title and little details when you hover mouse on any featured image. The default portfolio board just shows thumbnail and nothing else, so user is easily attracted to check-out your work samples.
Hovering mouse shows more details and clicking it takes you on portfolio post (full-page). Ink WordPress theme has responsive layout which keeps it working smoothly anywhere on different screen resolutions. Hence, your client’s can check-out your previous projects from tablet and all mobile devices. The fluid responsive design shows less columns on small devices, which depends on screen size.
Whether you need freelancer work showcase site, or professional agency site, Ink theme can fit to all needs where portfolio is main need.
Ink WordPress Theme : Top Features
Fixed Header : ThemeTrust has used vertical header layout which shows on the left side of the screen. So there is no need to scroll back to top area when you want to access menu links. The floating design keeps header visible on the left of the screen, no matter where you are. Hence, you will see menu links, logo and widgets all the time on left side while scrolling through the page
One more thing that you should note is that ThemeTrust Ink theme is flexible for all devices. So it shifts header section on the top of the page when you browse it from smart phone or any small screen size. The header becomes normal (no floating support) when you browse it from handy internet devices. It turns menu bar into a hamburger type button for mobiles, so user can still browse menu links easily.
Filter Support for Portfolio : Many advanced portfolio themes provide this feature for easy content browsing. That’s why Theme Trust also decided to create such a portfolio system that provides filter options. The back-end portfolio section helps you to define “Skill” for portfolio management. These skills are used as category to manage listings.
Whatever category you add in skills list is used to classify all work. Portfolio page shows that skills list on the top left (below title) as filter navigation bar. So visitors can either view all work or hit any skill button to filter the items. The smooth filter style makes it look amazing while helping visitors to view only specific portfolio projects.
If these many advanced features are provided in single theme, then you should not use other WordPress theme which needs additional plugin for portfolio management.
Other Options : Ink Portfolio Theme
Mostly, this type of WordPress themes are used by designers, artists and photographers. So we can’t expect them to involve in coding work or spend extra bucks to hire programmer. As a solution, ThemeTrust decided to create a global options panel which helps them perform all changes without coding skill. The customizer panel provides options to control blog, homepage, sidebar (widgets), colors, fonts and everything.
The demo shows Portfolio page as homepage but you can change it by setting up custom page (business), blog or any other page as homepage. Last but not least, Ink theme helps you to Set full screen background image for any page or posts. This is best solution for every one who needs a clean and elegant portfolio portal to promote work samples and business services.
