Most WordPress themes use white as the primary background color. That means most WordPress sites share the same design principles. So how do you break out of this overused trend? Simple, use a dark WordPress theme like Opulus Sombre Lite. It features several dark layouts to help you create portfolio, design, photography, creative media, architecture, interior decoration, or other artistic websites.
As the template is based on the Nimbus framework, you can expect the best performance for your website. The default homepage enjoys a universal design, making it suitable for different types of blog, news, or magazine sites. However, it is also possible to choose other front page layouts. The package includes several professionally designed templates for the other necessary pages of your site.
The comprehensive portfolio section is another notable feature of Opulus Sombre Lite. There are five portfolio layout options to help you showcase your previous experience in front of the visitors. The built-in custom shortcodes make it a lot easier to create different column-based layouts and integrate other required elements into your pages. Make your pages more inviting by adding the stylish parallax effects.
Looking for more ways to draw attention to various sections of your pages? How about using icons? Opulus Sombre comes with full support for all FontAwesome icons, which virtually covers all of your icon needs. The easily scalable icons could be used in any colors and sizes you want.
Thanks to the fully widgetized design, you can easily show the necessary information on the sidebar, footer, or other widget-supported locations of your website. The rich typography enables you to have complete control over the font family, color, and size of your fonts.
Want to get started as quickly as possible? You can use any of the professionally-chosen color schemes. Alternatively, you can choose specific colors and create a personalized color palette. There are separate options to select background colors for the body, drop-down menu, header, footer, and other sections.
On some occasions, you may need to add scripts to the top or bottom of the pages. Opulus Sombre takes care of that issue by offering dedicated fields for both actions. What’s more, you can apply custom CSS to get the exact design you want. Usual features, like uploading a logo, favicon, setting up a default Gravatar photo, are available as well.
When you are creating a professional site, or offering commercial services through your website, it is crucial to show your contact information in a prominent place. Opulus Sombre Lite has dedicated fields for providing the phone number, physical address, email address, fax, and more. You can show detailed contact information on the sidebar, footer, or other locations.
The mobile-optimized template is fully integrated with the popular social media platforms. The clean, optimized coding will ensure a decent page loading speed, while protecting your website from common security threats and offering superior search engine ranking.
I would definitely give it a 5-star rating! One other thing, I love the theme, this is the first Nimbus theme I have used and I am impressed with it... so many options!
