Most WordPress themes come with plenty of customization options, but it takes things to a whole new level. Install Rife Free and go to Appearance > Customize to see how many options you have to create an outstanding site.
There are plenty of general settings for customizing the site layout, blog posts, archives, and page formats. Exhibiting photos in the desired manner is simple and enjoyable with it. Album Works and Settings are two sections that give you fine control over the ways you feature images.
Rife Free comes with seven demos, while Rife Pro comes with 40+ demos. All of them are based on a modern design approach. There’s also no need to mention that Rife is responsive—it ensures the same good user experience no matter the device used.
Here are a few features you might not notice but are capital to designing an outstanding layout.
A preloader is an animation aimed at showing that the page is loading. It captivates the users so that they won’t leave your site. Rife includes a highly configurable preloader. The animations are sure to impress the viewers. Setting up the preloader is simple, and you have many options, from classic circle to the cool tetromino effect.
This effect ensures the perfect balance between dynamism and lethargy. Each web page needs a dynamic element, but too much movement hurts the user experience. The writing effect brings that needed sparkle of dynamism to your site. Head to Appearance > Customize > Miscellaneous > Writing Effect to set up the text speed.
Modern sites include hidden sidebars, and when these are smartly implemented, the impact on the users is huge. Go to the WordPress dashboard and click on Appearance > Customize > General Settings > Hidden Sidebar to configure it.
Vertical headers are another outstanding web construction. Luckily, vertical headers are available in the pro version. This approach will impress viewers and gain their attention for portfolios or photography sites.
Whether you choose vertical or classic headers, you have 15+ header variations to choose from.
Rife isn’t just for showing off your cool photos. It works even for online stores. Rife is WooCommerce compatible, so it takes a few hours to launch an online store. The Woor and Decode demos reveal Rife’s potential for e-commerce.
It’s compatible with not only WooCommerce but also Elementor, WPML, WPBackery, WPForms, and WP Google Maps. You can significantly enhance your store by using these plugins. Install and activate them confidently because Rife is 100% compatible with all of them.
