Anima WordPress Theme

Anima WordPress Theme

Extra customizable

Anima is designed for your customizing pleasure. Sure, the theme looks great out of the box but its full potential is unleashed only once you install it on your site and open up the WordPress Customizer.

Hundreds of options are cramped in there, their sole purpose being to please you, their only goal - to be used. So don't feel guilty if you change every single last one of those options. It's their destiny!

A multipurpose theme

Anima is a multi-purpose WordPress theme created for personal and business sites alike. Seriously, try and find a domain or area of activity that you couldn’t use Anima for. We're waiting...

Anima has wide and boxed layouts, customizable colors and widths and it supports WooCommerce, WPML, qTranslate, Polylang, RTL, Google Fonts, social icons and much more.

First impressions

And for those very important first impressions, the theme boosts a highly customizable landing page, equipped with an ultralight and easy to use slider, featured icon blocks, featured image boxes and text areas complete with parallax effects.

The Plus version of the theme brings even more sections, more designs, a highly useful custom post type, portfolios and more control options over these sections.

Responsive header titles

Pages, posts, category and search pages all have the ability to show all the meta data inside the header image. The title, meta information and breadcrumbs are all shown over the featured image, saving precious space for your amazing content while also greatly improving the design of your site.

We’re calling them header titles, they’re nicely animated when you open a new page and you can easily enable or disable them from the customizer (individually for posts, pages or archive pages).
