The pain of theme selection is known only for a blogger who has experienced it. If you are one among those who have tried other 101 themes on your blog and still not happy with them, this theme named Swift would put a full stop for your search of new themes. Though this is a free wordpress theme, the features really match any premium theme costing hundreds of dollars.
Here is a preview of the most impressive Swift theme.
Though I write many things about wordpress and its plugins, I don’t deal much with themes, but there are strong reasons that I am loving this theme and would recommend the same to anyone.
1. No images: This is a wonderful feature I would suggest anyone. We have to be aware of the fact that not every other internet user is on a high speed broadband, if you measure internet speeds of visitors, you can observe many of them are still on slow internet. Your site should be accessible for everyone easily. One should also optimize web images while publishing posts.
2. Cross browser compatible: Website browser compatibility is a very important factor to be considered for a pleasing user experience on every browser software. This theme is made to work equally well even in IE6.
4. Complete customization: This is the most important factor which made me to pick it up for a review here. You can customize almost everything – virtually every user of swift can run his own appearance if you have great web color schemes. Here are the options available with the theme.
These are too much to explain in a single post, but you can actually experience even the internals of their theme options using the credentials given below. These options also help you maintain your ad campaigns with adsense and 125 banners. You may add 4 banners using their settings.
Color option is a special highlight where you can set which color to use in which part of the theme without any coding knowledge. I had never seen such feature in any free theme. Also you have 4 sidebars and 4 footer sections which can be customized in widgets panel.
Thanks to Satish Gandham from Genius Hackers for providing such a superb theme to the open source community.
