Olympus is a powerful, flexible and easy to use theme created for magazines, blogs and informative sites with heavy media content.
The theme has been created to "just work" and get out of the way to let you focus on more important stuff like creating content, acquiring more visitors or relax on the beach. The experience of using Olympus is incredibly easy because a theme should adapt tou your need and not the other way around while still providing you with strong tools and lots of customization options.
Responsive smartphone version.
The theme will automatically switch to an appropriate version on mobile devices so your readers can enjoy a better experience that is more apt to their phones. It's like getting two themes for the price of one. Also, if you prefer, you can always switch it off.
Retina devices will automatically display @2x images if they are available.
Beautiful image slider
Unlimited color customization
Every element in the theme can be customized and switched to any color. Pick the colors that better fit your brand with the powerful WordPress customizer.
Personalize the look and feel of your site by picking the fonts that suit it from the customizing tool with just a couple clicks. Several standard web fonts and web fonts are supported, with more coming soon.
Front-page lightbox for video and images
If you take a look at the demo, you will see some posts with the legend "watch video" or "watch image" when you pass the mouse over the thumbnail. This tool allows you to feature content directly into your front page for a more impactful look.
We took the sidebar out of the way so the user can focus on the content and you have more space to work with, however, a sidebar is a necessary tool so we added a more modern togglable sidebar that can be controled by the user. You can add content like in any other sidebar.
Mix post styles
Not all content is created equal. Olympus lets you choose different looks for your video and image posts so they can be differentiated in the front page and archive.
A very easy to use rating system for reviews is included.
SEO Rich Snippets
When using the built-in review system, the theme will automatically create the necessary microformat data for the post to be displayed as a rich snippet in organic search results. This is a great feature for SEO and helps your site to stand out in the search results page.
Shortcodes that you will actually use
What's the point of having 100 shortcodes in a theme that no one is going to use?. Olympus includes just a few, but they are focused on real world content situations that you will want to use, like side quotes, post images and tables.
A lightbox script automatically turns your galleries into a beautiful slideshow. No extra work required, it makes use of the wordpress gallery tool and expands upon it to get a gorgeous look. Take a look at some of the posts in the demo where they are included.
Automatic image resizing
Don't worry about making several versions of your images for the thumbanils like with other themes. Olympus takes care of automatically resizing, cropping and caching the images so your site can run fast.
Replace the default wordpress commenting system with facebook's so you can connect with your users and expand your brand in the social networks. You can also use the default if you prefer or even both.
Connect a twitter account to the theme and enjoy lots of built-in features like automatic tweets every time you publish new content or a widget that grabs your latest posts. No third-party plugins required everything works right out of the box.
Other social media integration
The social tools for the theme don't end there, there are more options included like sharing tools, profile linking and widgets included.
Don't worry about making changes to support ads. The theme already includes 4 ad spaces in the common places. Simply paste the code of your ad network and teh theme takes care of the rest.
Five widgets are included so you don't need to install additional plugins. These include an improved version of the recent posts widget, a reviews list, facebook like box, latest tweets and video widgets.
The theme supports standard language localisation. English and Spanish language packs are included at the moment and more will be added in the future.
It is a common problem when upgrading other themes to lose changes you have made when the files are replaced. Not with Olympus, you can add your CSS using the powerful editor and it will override the default theme's styles while allowing you to upgrade safely to newer versions of the theme because the changes aren't being hard-coded directly into the files.
Some testing tools used while developing the theme have been included for advanced users that want to make changes. These are turned off by default, you have to enable them in the options panel.
Lots of new features are added consantly as well as support for newer versions of wordpress.
