Custom Post Types
In addition to the Blog post type, the theme provides two further post types: News and Portfolio.
Tags and categories are post type dependent and you can assign a different permalink structure to every post type, so you have the ability to completely separate post, tag and category pages of different post types.
The search page and several widgets support post type selection, e.g. the Recent Post widgets allows you to display only news, but you can also set it to post type independent mode.
Extended and Additional Widgets
The theme helps you to create your own website not only with the additional widgets, but it also improved the standard WordPress widgets with extended options and features.
Several widgets are skinnable, allow you to select an image to use as a list-item marker and support post types.
Additional widgets are:
Recent Posts (an improved one and a brand new one)
Custom Widget Areas
The theme provides several predefined widget areas, but you have the ability to create as many custom widget areas as you want.
You can edit the layout of widgets in each widget area with an easy to use wizard and you can attach widget areas to the sidebars and footers on every page of your site.
Additionally, shortcodes allow you to insert custom widget areas into the contents and subheaders of pages as well.
Custom subheaders make your website more attractive to visitors.
You can have different content in the subheaders on every page of your site.
The theme provides a couple of useful ready-made templates but you can always create your own custom subheaders.
The contents of the subheaders can be edited the same way as the contents of pages and posts.
Widespread support for creating and displaying slideshows.
You can create and edit your slideshows in a wizard similar to the WordPress menu editor.
The contents of slides can be edited the same way as the contents of posts and pages, and you can also use shortcodes in them.
You can set background and pagination images and add any number of layers to every slide.
A layer is timed content that can appear and disappear with an animation.
Sliders support several transition effects.
Thanks to the slideshow widget and shortcode, sliders may appear not only on the homepage, but anywhere on any page.
In addition to the default WordPress gallery, you can create different galleries for every post and page.
Dottoro Gallery is more widely customizable than the default WordPress gallery.
It lets you create image and video galleries, including Flash, Youtube and Vimeo videos.
The galleries are presented with the use of an image viewer application that displays the images in an attractive manner to your visitors.
Several options are supported for each page regardless of its template. These options are: sidebar position, additional sidebar and footer widget areas, body css class, subheader specific options and some other ones.
With the sidebar position option you can set the position of the sidebar (or remove the sidebar) on any page separately, so there is no need Sidebar Left, Sidebar Right and Full Width templates.
Moreover, every page template supports page specific options. For example, for Blog, News and Portfolio pages, you can specify the number of visible posts per page, the number of posts in a row, the categories should be displayed on the page, the size and aligment of thumbnails and much more.
