Kahuna WordPress Theme

Kahuna WordPress Theme

The Big Kahuna

Kahuna is the big kahuna among WordPress themes. It shows off with its exotic design, effective and easy to use customizer settings and responsive, fully editable layout.

Many personal and business sites have embraced it for a wide spectrum of uses, ranging from portfolio and photography sites to blogs and online shops.

Creatively Customizable

Kahuna is a Cryout Creations theme and that means that you can show, hide or customize almost every element on your Kahuna powered WordPress site.

With 100+ customizer settings, the creative power is placed in your hands. Take Kahuna to new heights and create your own theme by customizing layouts, landing page elements, typography, text and background colors, social icons, featured images, header and footer elements and a whole lot more.

Effective & Elegant

In terms of design we went for a clean, fresh look, with straight lines and corners, bold titles contrasting a lighter body font. Subtle, carefully crafted animations tie everything together in a neat package.

We chose lime green as the accent color for this theme to emphasize its freshness and coolness but you can of course change it from the customizer (along with all other colors).

Responsive Images

Although it works just as well without them, Kahuna is built around images: featured images, header images, content and widget images, sliders and landing page images.

So use them! Your WordPress site will come to life and your content will shine and become infinitely more appealing. Kahuna's own header titles and on-image meta information will take great advantage of them.
