We built Kolby to stand out from the competition. The Kolby WordPress theme provides a simple, clean, and fully responsive template for blogging about your favorite topics - travel, fashion, food, nightlife, or anything else! Kolby allows you to easily customize the site to fit your unique needs, using a curated selection of Google fonts and an array of color options. It also includes a one-click demo import to help you get your site up and running fast.
Gradients have grown increasingly popular in the internet over the past few years, and Kolby makes it easy for you to create your own unique gradients. The colors you choose in our custom color selection tool will automatically be converted to eye-catching gradients. We even utilized the latest in CSS3 to let you set the text of your site title as a gradient, as shown in the demos and screenshots. If you don’t want a gradient for your site title, you can upload a custom logo instead.
Packaged Product Link Plugin
The Kolby Helper Plugin comes pre-packaged with the theme. If you decide to use it, this plugin allows you to create "Product Links” that will make it easier for you to put products on posts that discuss them. You can also paste your affiliate links to the products you create to help your blog generate revenue. Note: the plugin is designed to be used with affiliate links and does not include any ecommerce functionality.
The number of popular screen sizes increases daily, so we built our theme using Bootstrap. This means that it’s fully responsive and should work across a wide range of popular devices.
The demo content for the theme comes with a set of images from unsplash.com. Unsplash gives you a non-exclusive license to use the images on your website. Make sure to read their license to ensure compliance with your intended use. These included images are a great way to help you get your site up and running quickly. Once your site is up, you can stick with the included images or replace them with your own custom images.
Font Awesome Icons For Social Media and More
We integrated Font Awesome icons with our theme. Kolby’s social menu makes it easy for you to link to your social media and generate the appropriate icons. To add social media icons to the menu, just paste in the link to your social media page. Then Kolby automatically pulls in the appropriate icon from Font Awesome (here’s the complete list of available icons: http://fontawesome.io/cheatsheet/).
We also included the option to add eye-catching icons to your site with the click of a button. These can help your users understand your content more easily. Our travel blog demo shows how you can use those: https://themes.corporatezen.com/kolbydemo2/
To make navigation easy for your visitors, Kolby includes a sticky header. The sticky header means your users will never have to waste time scrolling through long pages when they want to navigate your site.
Custom Styling for Popular Plugins
We’ve added custom styles for several popular plugins to make those plugins more closely match the style of Kolby. Our styles will automatically be applied when you activate the plugins. Currently, we’ve added custom styles for WooCommerce, Contact Form 7, MailChimp for WordPress, MetaSlider, NextGEN Gallery, and The Events Calendar.
Multiple Widget Areas
Kolby includes optional sidebar and above-the-footer widget areas. To make managing these areas easy, we gave Kolby a global option to display the sidebar widget on pages and posts, on neither, or on pages or posts. For further customization, we added the ability to override the global settings on a page-by-page or post basis.
NOTE: This theme was packaged and built for installations of WordPress.org only. We do not support this theme or code on WordPress.com sites.
