If you are a regular reader of Deluxe Blog Tips, you might know that I and my team (FitWP) have been working on developing premium WordPress themes. After the first product, now FitWP team has just released 2nd one – NOISE – a music WordPress theme for bands, DJs or for just a simple music website.
NOISE is a WordPress theme that FitWP invested so much effort and time developing, we focused not only on design quality but also functionality and coding. When this theme was just an idea, we put so many criteria on design in order to create an eye-catching and creative product for users. You can see the result at this demo website.
NOISE is designed as an Onepage website, a design trending in 2013-2014 (which is predicted that will be continued as a major trend in next year). Also in NOISE, you’ll find some idea from iOS 7 (Slide To Unlock), scroll effect, parallax, … which are all favourite design trends at this moment.
The special part in NOISE that have to be told about is management functionality of tracks (songs), artists, albums or events. There are clear options for that which make you feel easy to understand and use. More than that, there’re relations between these content (like between artists – songs, songs – albums, …) which will make your website a completed unify and logical. All this logic is displayed clearly, clean in the frontend.
Besides, you’ll see NOISE has an unique media player, which is developed from MediaElementJS – a HTML5 music player included in WordPress, but is built with a lot of appearance improvements and added many interesting functionality like: playlist, visualization, show song title (with scroll animation if it’s too long), …
Another strong point that can not be ignored is user interaction when using the website. All user actions like vote, play tracks, see track info, show gallery of images, videos, … are carefully made in order to give users best experience.
With the desire of making a high quality product, FitWP team hope NOISE will satisfy user’s requirements and bring them a good time and feeling when using their websites.
Use NOISE now and let us know how you feel about that!
This is my small talk at the last Hanoi WordPress Meetup before the Lunar New Year! In this slide, I show some things that we can learn from 2014 theme from point of a developer. I don’t talk about design or responsive thing as people talked about that too much. I focus only on code, where every theme developer should care about.
I’ve been working as a freelancer for a long time. This is excellent progress to accumulate experience and it helps me a lot in being familiar with code of premium and free themes, frameworks and plugins. I’ve been learning and customizing them. Thanks for that knowledge, my team FitWP has built a theme framework and started making themes based on it. Our goal is creating powerful themes (if you are a developer who uses Genesis or Hybrid, my favorites frameworks, you’ll know what I mean) but still friendly, easy to use and customize. Whisper – a corporation WordPress theme – is our first theme in that direction.
Whisper is a corporation, business WordPress theme, which focus on ability to customize and user friendliness. In today background, where most themes have similar appearance and features, we focus on easy-to-use at most. All theme options are built minimally, but still keep it as flexible as needed. Theme uses a new theme options framework, not popular theme frameworks like Options Framework, NHP, SMOF or Options Tree because they’re quite complicated and don’t satisfy our needs of customizing and appearance.
Besides that, Whisper is carefully built with highest SEO efficiency. We know that SEO plugins like WordPress SEO By Yoast, AIO SEO Pack bring a great SEO ability to any WordPress theme. But there’re something that these plugins can’t touch, like HTML markup – how to use HTML5 tags semantically, how to exactly declare microdata or micro formats (used for rich snippets). This is what Whisper supports and is its difference.
Whisper has some advantages which a good theme should have like: clean structure (including code), modular CSS with LESS, using theme wrapper to optimize templates, … You can see full feature list of Whisper here.
Please let us know what you think about Whisper in the comment below. We’re open and will improve the theme constantly!
And don’t forget to support Whisper by purchasing it at ThemeForest. Thank you very much.
