Best affords a wealth of flexibility and power to WordPress powered sites. Built from the ground up with valid HTML5 and utilizing the latest CSS3 techniques, Best is a forward-thinking template that is designed to last. It’s also the same Theme we are using on this very site!
Fixed-width websites are so 2011. If you’re ready to bring your site into 2012 with style, try out a design that is built from the ground up to look great on all devices. Best is built on a thoroughly tested responsive grid and HTML5 to ensure that your content is easily accessible no matter what kind of gadget happens to be displaying it.
Go beyond the blog with Best’s included page layouts. If your business or personal site does a lot of work with static pages, you’ll be pleased to know that Best comes with three different templates, allowing you to achieve whatever kind of design you’re after. Included layouts are content left, content right, and full-width.
Best has two menu sections available, which can be managed via the drag and drop interface available since WordPress 3.0. The topbar navigation scrolls with users in “desktop” view, then folds to create a clean mobile nav for smaller screens. The footer navigation is great for any additional links that you might have for your site.
Utilize your site as a simple blog or full-fledged content management system with Best’s easy-to-use layout options. This portion of the options panel allows you to activate or deactivate certain areas of your theme depending on how you plan on using the theme, including:
- Header banner area
- Homepage intro text
- Homepage widget row below slider
- Featured content bar on inner pages
- Twitter integration above footer
- Top footer area
