Magazines have a certain appeal to them, and we all love reading them. And one main factor behind this is that, the layouts of magazines are very catchy. So, when Metro Theme was introduced for the WordPress platform, it obviously had hundreds of takers, because Metro Theme is a theme which is loaded with a magazine like layout, and is built on a mobile responsive platform.
The Metro Theme is built for attracting an audience, and if you use this theme, you will see that achieving this end is very easy and effortless indeed. The frame of the theme is a more than spacious 1152 pixels width frame, and is built to fit the standards of a very wide screen. And this is a pretty nifty characteristic, considering that most screens today are wide screens, and everyone prefers a spotless, clear cut display on a big screen.
And for building up a fast audience, the social features included are really sleek, and the customization options are really good too. You get five color styles, there are six layout options, the background can be customized, it comes with a landing page template, the width is fixed, and of course, the theme is mobile responsive.
The Metro Theme also comes with a slider, which really helps when resizing images, and of course, it even supports videos. As far as layouts go, you can make use of both magazine, or homepage layout designs, whichever suits your needs best. There are six widgets, which are customized, for Facebook Like Box, Twitter, Flickr, Blog, Portfolio, and video.
The styling menu helps you to tune the background, using the panel’s opacity options, and the colors that you can choose from, which come with the theme. You can use from over twenty handmade WordPress skins too, or design your own personal color scheme.
