Spotlight is a clean, fast and well-thought WordPress theme for content-heavy blogs & magazines.
5 Eye-Catching Demos in One Theme
Thanks to our signature feature, the Demo Switcher, you may apply a new demo any time without effecting your content. If you feel bored with one of the demos, simply apply a new one and get a completely different appearance of your blog or magazine.
Display an eye-catching title and a short description of your website to start a conversation with your visitors. Add a call to action button, subscription or search form to your hero section for extended features.
Featured Posts Section
Display featured posts in a beautiful grid. You may filter your featured posts by category, tag or post IDs, order them by date or views number and even set limits for the time frame when posts were published.
Featured Posts on Category pages
You may include the featured posts section not only on your homepage, but on category pages too.
Enable sub-categories filter on category pages for content-heavy websites. It will help your visitors navigate between categories and sub-categories and find the post they’ve been looking for.
Multiple Page Header Types
There are three different page header types for your posts and pages. Display your featured posts’ header with an image overlay, wide edge-to-edge image or traditional layout.
When you select a dark background color for your header or footer, the text and links color will automatically change to white. You don’t need to setup a lot of color option, as most of them will work automatically based on your selection.
Customize with Instant Live Preview
All theme options can be configured with the native WordPress customize feature. Forget the outdated settings pages and manually refreshing your page to see the changes. Preview all the changes live while configuring your perfect blog or media.
Multiple Archive Layouts for Homepage and Archive Pages
Choose from different post archive layouts for your homepage and archive pages. Display your posts in list, full or alternative list layouts.
Multiple Page Layouts
Select the matching page layout for your homepage, archives, posts, and pages. Display a sidebar on either the left or right side or use the full-width page layout for your content.
Showcase your recent posts with a thumbnail right in the menu dropdown. Don’t worry, the menu will not slow down your website, as the content is requested dynamically, only when a user hovers over the parent menu item.
We have added styles for the AMP pages to match the main styles of your website. Simply activate the official WordPress AMP plugin to enable Google Accelerated Mobile Pages on your website.
Exclude Featured Posts from the Main Archive
Everybody knows, and Google in particular, that duplicate content is bad. Avoid having duplicate content on your homepage by excluding featured posts from the main archive with a single click.
Create different styles with 800+ Google Fonts supported. Simply select the desired font from the dropdown and preview it instantly on your website – no more confusing CSS rules or code snippets.
Ever wanted to place an ad spot underneath your header? Or a short description before the featured posts section on your homepage? A subscribe form below post content? With our signature template you may insert any content into different template parts without changing template files or overriding templates with a child theme.
Smart Sticky Navigation
Increase mobile users’ viewport by displaying the main navigation only when they scroll up. Or force the menu to stay sticky all the time. Or disable the feature completely, it’s up to you! Enable either of the three options in theme settings with a single click.
Make your widgets sticky when scrolling the page. Select from two options: either stick to the bottom edge of your sidebar or the top edge of the last widget. Increase your ad’s conversion by setting the ad as your last widget and selecting the latter option. Unlike other theme’s sticky sidebars, ours is enabled and doesn’t flicker on tablets or mobiles. By using the native browser’s sticky positioning, we created a sticky sidebar that animates gorgeously not only on desktops, but mobiles too.
Smart Multi-Level Menu
It’s you who decides how to structure your content. Our theme supports unlimited levels in your main menu. If there’s not enough space in the viewport to display a dropdown submenu, it will appear on the opposite side instead. And it supports mobile touch devices, too.
Mobile Slide-Out Menu with Widgets
Display the mobile menu upon clicking the hamburger icon on mobile devices. You may also place social links, subscription form, Facebook fan page or any other widget on your mobile menu, just as in a regular sidebar.
Smart Featured Post Sources
The featured post section can have different post sources. You may filter posts by tag or category and order posts by date, post views or even specify the timeframe when the posts were published.
Divide your posts into multiple pages and add properly styled pagination at the bottom of your posts.
Guest Authors and Multi-Author Posts with Co-Authors Plus Support
Involve guest authors without creating separate user accounts or add multiple authors per post with the integrated Co-Authors Plus plugin support. All post authors, including contributors and guest authors can have social accounts and a bio too.
Built-in support for RTL (right-to-left) languages like Arabic, Hebrew, Persian or any other RTL written language.
Numbered Pagination, Load More, and Infinite Load
The “Load More” button and the Infinite Load feature will encourage your users to stay on your website longer by browsing through your post archives without refreshing the browser page.
We use the new REST API for instantly fetching posts, which is the fastest way to dynamically load posts in WordPress.
Post Views Counter Support
Display number of post views among other post meta with the integrated Post Views Counter support.
Post Reading Time
Easily add post reading time to encourage your users. The reading time is calculated automatically based on the average reading speed of an adult.
Your website will look amazing on Retina screens thanks to vector scalable elements, clear Retina-ready images, and typography.
Adaptive Optimized Image Sizes
A small number of generated thumbnails will save your disk storage space on your hosting provider and make the thumbnail regeneration process quick.
We never downscale images and serve them in the original size or close to it, so that users will not download more than they need. Google likes optimized image sizes too.
We tested our theme on multiple physical devices and emulators to make sure we deliver the best quality.
Feature-Rich, yet Simple
Despite a lot of great built-in features, it’s extremely easy to use. All options support live-preview, and you may instantly see all the changes before saving them.
We made sure that all theme options and features are seamlessly blended into the WordPress user interface and feel very natural and intuitive.
Of course, no coding is required to setup up your website.
SEO by Yoast Support including Breadcrumbs Styles
Activate breadcrumbs, a powerful SEO addition to your website, with a single click in SEO using Yoast plugin and it will automatically appear in the right place with the right styles.
