Recommended Plugins (Optional)

The plugins I used in the live demo site for this theme are listed below. These are optional only and not required to make the theme function, although they will provide enhancements. The one big one is the Jetpack plugin because it contains several modules that works for the theme on the following elements. I should also mention that if you do not want to use Jetpack, there are alternative plugins to achieve similar results.

The demo site currently has these modules activated in Jetpack :

  • Widget Visibility – Allows you to publish widgets to select pages
  • Sharing – Adds social networking icons at the bottom of posts or pages for others to share with their friends
  • Contact Form – Used on the contact page
  • Custom CSS – Gives you the ability to make custom CSS changes to the theme
  • Related Posts – Adds “Related Posts” at the bottom of posts with thumbnails
  • Custom Content Type – Gives the abiltiy to create a portfolio
