With so many WordPress themes to choose from, it can be hard to find the one that is right for you. It needs to match your brand aesthetic, but it should also be easy to navigate and implement on your website.
Avada Theme offers all of that —customization, simple navigation, pre-built websites with one-click uploading and more.
What is Avada Theme?
Avada Theme is the number one selling WordPress theme, complete with an intuitive website builder, dozens of ready-to-use design elements, and a number of pre-built website templates to work with.
One reason why Avada Theme is so appealing is because it's easy enough for beginners to use (with no coding knowledge required) but flexible enough for professionals to customize.
You'll be able to customize your layout and colors, choose from a library of Font Awesome fonts, and upload images to sliders and other graphical elements. To save time, you can also build your WordPress website by starting with one of the templates that they provide and making adjustments from there.
Avada Theme Features
Avada has several features that will allow you to build a website to match your brand. WooCommerce integration means you can offer an online shop, while image sliders create an attractive way to display content. You can start a blog, share event information, or even add Google Maps to help users find your brick-and-mortar location.
Here's a deep dive into some of Avada's most popular features.
Avada provides ultimate design flexibility with its Design Content System. The theme's fusion builder allows you to see your changes instantly with the front-end editor. You'll also have full control of your site from the live editor that allows you to interact with every design element and layout across your site. You can customize each individual page and post using the editor. This allows you to transform your site by taking any ordinary post and recreating a new layout.
There are over 60 design elements with endless combination options to create dynamic, feature-rich content. Avada has you everything you need in the Fusion Library — all you have to do is choose what feature you'd like on your site, click and drag it into place, and customize it to your liking.
You'll have many options among the various demos, pages, posts, portfolios, images, sliders, widgets, and more. You can quickly upload a pre-built website design with one click using the demo importer. Plus, you can uninstall specific elements from your site. Avada is also responsive to any device, so all of your design elements will look great on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops.
Avada is fully equipped to help you build an online store or catalog. The theme is integrated with WooCommerce, so you can sell products and services directly from your site.
