Videology is a WordPress theme that is rich in visual features, easy to customize with or without programming knowledge, and tested thoroughly to be fast and stable. Here’s a quick run-down of Videology’s features:
Home Page and Sliders
There are two types of content sliders you can use in the home page – main slider and news slider. The main slider appears at the top of the content area and intends to highlight your chosen set of contents. It also allows for video player for each item. The news slider is a much simpler, drag-and-drop slider, which is another option for highlighting your contents. You may use the two together. Aside from these, there are other visual elements you may add in the home page. For more information, please visit this link.
There are 9 custom widgets that come with this theme – the “About Us” box, advertisement, post listings with thumbnails, featured videos (list and player), latest tweets, and recent comments (with post thumbnails or avatars). They allow you to put dynamic content in the sidebars of different pages and the footer. Please browse different pages in the demo site to see the custom widgets in action.
