Anchor – an all purpose theme

Posted on

One of the things our Club members tell us fairly often is the limited selection of simple blog/magazine themes in our portfolio. Up until now, TechNews was basically the only magazine theme available. We set to change that with Anchor. Anchor is an all purpose theme that can be used for business, magazine or literally any purpose.

Mobile Friendly Design

Just as all our recent themes, Anchor is completely responsive and will look good on virtually every device. The best way to see responsive Anchor in action is to visit the demo site with your smartphone or to resize your browser window while on the demo site.

Hassle-free Updates

With Anchor you won’t have to worry about updating the theme, notifications about new updates will come directly to your WordPress dashboard. What’s more, you’ll be able to perform the update right there inside the dashboard. Be careful though…updating will undo all your customization so be sure to back everything up first.

More than just a Blog theme

On top of being an awesome magazine theme, Anchor can also be used to start a fancy online webstore. To enable that Anchor is compatible with the free WooCommerce plugin. Digital, physical, variable products…with WooCommerce you can sell pretty much anything.

Unlimited Colors

Instead of providing a couple of preset skins, Anchor will allow you to define colors for things like buttons, titles, header, footer and so on. All of this is accomplished using the WordPress Customizer meaning you get to see your site change in real-time.

New Shortcodes

Anchor comes with an extensive selection of shortcodes created using Twitter Bootstrap. Along with standard shortcodes such as alert boxes or icon lists you can also add tabs, galleries, tooltips, popovers and more. A full list of shortcodes is available on the Anchor demo site

Other Anchor features

  • 1-click install for getting started with the theme in literally seconds
  • Fully widgetized homepage lets you control and edit almost every homepage element, even the slider!
  • Full WordPress SEO by Yoast and bbPress plugin compatibility
  • Create massive header menus using the included Mega Menu widget

    In short: Excellent. Almost perfect.

    I hope we have more multi-purpose themes.

    Also, I expect minimalist themes (both in appearance and the ease of handling the back-end).
    Not because of me. But for other users. Knowledge we have is different, needs also.

    Way to go, go ahead.

    Question:

    Would you say that even for the main purpose of listing events, Anchor is superior to Event2? It looks like Anchor can do everything Event2 can do, and then a little more. Is that correct?

      Hey Serge
      No, that’s not correct. Anchor theme doesn’t handle events at all: it doesn’t have proper listing filter for events, an events calendar, events search, not even an events taxonomy. For managing events you’re ought to look at either Events v2 or Nightlife.

      You could in theory create events as regular WordPress posts but then you’d be lacking many functionality available in the above mentioned themes.
