As the name implies, the Outreach WordPress theme from StudioPress.com, a concern of Copyblogger Media network is marketed as a theme suitable for charitable or religious causes. For instance, the theme can be used to represent a church within a specific geographical area. In other words, the theme is for non-commercial uses.
However, after going through the features and its interface, I can conclude that the theme will be great even for commercial purposes. We all know the power of Genesis network and this theme, yet again, proves that a well-built and easy-to-use interface is enough to even make a newbie itch to build a business website.
What Does Outreach WordPress Theme Include?
The theme includes:
- Complete Genesis Framework
- Detailed tutorials
- Mobile responsive theme
- Unlimited site support
The Outreach theme boasts of the following features:
Huge Image Slides
We respond more to images than any other thing, including the written content. If you see the site demo, you will know what I mean. Replace those images with the optimized ones representing your business and I am sure, you will have better click-through rate in any case.
The home page and others are not cluttered. A cluttered web design is a huge turn off for website visitors, especially when you cannot distinguish one thing from the other. The outreach theme has minimal but effective design. Moreover, its background color – black – makes the interface more poignant.
There are six ways in which the website layout can be changed and let me tell you, every layout is beautifully crafted. The six layouts are
- content / sidebar;
- sidebar / content;
- content / sidebar / sidebar;
- sidebar / sidebar / content;
- sidebar / content / sidebar;
- full width
Color and Comments
The theme can be customized into four colors – blue, green, orange and red. Further, if you plan the blog or business website to be very interactive, the theme gives you threaded commenting feature as well.
The entire interface is aptly widgetized. All you have to do is place the HTML Text widget into the correct places, fill it up and interlink it with inner pages. After you purchase the theme for $79.95, the full access to documentation and tutorials will make website building very smooth.
The Outreach WordPress theme, even though minimalist, has a very strong presence. The well detailed layout makes it more approachable. It can be used for both commercial and non-commercial purposes.
