eCommerce – A Multipurpose Theme Trend in the Making?

Posted · Category: Information

Soon after the online shopping trend first took hold, the number of eCommerce-related websites began to steadily increase as more and more people became comfortable with the online shopping concept, and began shopping from their PCs in the comfort of their own homes. With the advent of handheld devices, savvy shoppers began to use their tablets and phones to shop whenever and from wherever they wished, even though the manner in which information was displayed on these devices often left much to be desired.

Thegrowing number of shoppers using mobile devicesbrought about the next trend; Responsive multipurpose themes. The advent of the responsive theme resolved many of the difficulties users encountered when attempting to surf the Internet using their phones or tablets. A new trend now appears to be taking shape. It is the use ofeCommerce-focused multipurpose themes that enable developers to create feature-packed, easy to navigate, and user-friendly websitesfor all online shoppers.

Features eCommerce Themes must have to be Competitive

The number of design options currently available to web developers is virtually limitless, yet any eCommerce site, in particular one builtupon a multipurpose WordPress theme, must display certain features or characteristics if it is going to attract a large customer base.

Themes that can enable a developer to easily create an acceptable end product must be flexible and versatile enough to produce fast loading, easily navigable, attention-grabbing pages. Design elements and options such as shopping carts, reviews, and testimonial pages, ordering and wish list pages, and other commerce-related features must be readily accessible, and easily incorporated into a website.

eCommerce oriented pre-made layouts, user friendly page building and admin features, and responsive and retina ready, cross-browser and multi-platform compatible features must be characteristics of any theme. The resulting website pages must be informative, and they must be attention grabbing.


With these features tools in hand, a website developer is in a position to make it all happen. All that remains is to select a theme that not only has these features, but a theme that has an abundance of elements and design options, giving the developer the flexibility needed to create jaw-dropping web pages.

Find Image Colors and Create Responsive CSS Gradient

Posted · Category: Color Schemes, MIT License

The delay between HTTP objects being requested/recieved leaves a timeframe where a webpage can look incomplete. Inspired by Soundclouds’s use of random gradients, Gradify can analyse an image for the 4 most common colors and create a gradient (or solid color) to act as a placeholder image. Gradify is a module which finds the most prominent colors in any image, and produces a scalable, responsive CSS gradient. This can provide a less jarring experience as image placeholders.

A Mini-Library of Page Scroll Effects

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

Codyhouse has put together a set of Page Scroll Effects, they are some fancy effects that take place while the user is surfing through the sections of a web page. Some of the effects are quite extreme, but they can prove very useful if your goal is to create an immersive user experience. All animations have been created using Velocity.js.

Please note that these effects are not visible on small devices, where the user can simply scroll through the list of sections. They have tested the effects on mobile and performance was poor, therefore they decided to limit them to bigger and more powerful devices.
