Elmastudio – Zuki Premium WordPress Theme
Just like in a big online Magazine or Newspaper website, Zuki offers a wide variety and flexibility to feature posts on the custom Zuki Frontpage. You can show featured posts in a slider at the top of your front page, only use the two-column layout, create big one-column featured posts, and teaser smaller posts in the different widget areas.
To offer a lot of different layout options the Zuki comes with three big, one-column widget areas (top, middle, and bottom), as well as two content & sidebar widget areas in between (Post Content 1 / Sidebar 1 and Post Content 2 / Sidebar 2).
Of course, you don’t need to use all widget areas and post widgets. You can just use the widget areas that let you create the layout you can have in mind for your Frontpage. This way almost all Zuki themes will look a little different and you can create a very individual website without a lot of work. Here is an overview of the Zuki Front page widget areas.
Zukis Custom Post Widgets
You can use the different Zuki Post widgets in all Frontpage and sidebar widget areas and set the number of posts to show in the widget. You can use the big post widgets to feature a small number of posts and the medium and small post widgets to teaser a number of your posts on the Frontpage. The widgets will look best if you include Featured images for all your posts. Because you can filter the posts by categories, it’s easy to feature different topics on your website on the front page.
Further Theme Features
We also created a default blog layout with a right-aligned sidebar for Zuki. So you can also just use Zuki as a classic, minimal blog theme.
Zuki also comes with a beautiful Quote widget that can be used in all widget areas and with a Social Links menu. You can create a new Social menu under Appearance / Menus by including custom links with URLs to your social profiles. The icons will show up automatically after setting the new Social menu as the “Social Links Footer menu” or by using the “Custom Menu” widget to include the social links one of the sidebars (the name of the menu for your custom menu has to be “Social”).
A further theme highlight is the Header content filter option that you can activate under Appearance / Customize / Theme. Now your readers can easily filter your posts by years, authors, month, categories, and tags.
