Earth 3.0 Drag & Drop Environmental WordPress Theme

Visual Composer: Drag & Drop Page Builder

Earth now includes the fabulous Visual Composer. This page builder plugin allows you to create custom page layouts using rows and page elements (like post grids, carousels, images, galleries, sliders, toggles, tabs, sidebars and more). If you want to learn more about what the page builder can do and how it works, we recently wrote a brief Guide to Visual Composer for WordPress.

Layer Slider

The theme now also has the lovely Layer Slider. You can create simple or complex animated and layered sliders with minimal effort.  The slider includes support for boxed or full width sliders, multiple slider styles, loads of slide transitions, tons of media options, custom CSS support and more. If you want to learn more about the plugin, visit the Layer Slider WordPress Plugin page.

Responsive & Retina Ready

That’s right – Earth 3.0 is completely responsive and now has retina support (via retina.js). This means the theme will look pixel perfect on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones – even ones with high quality retina displays. This way your readers can see every detail of the images you upload to your posts, galleries or events.

Easy Gallery Management

We’ve built-in a brand new function for easier gallery management. You can now now quickly and easily add, remove and re-order your galleries (and event gallery images) using the image gallery manager within each post.


Navigation Icon Support

With so many gradients, patterns, co.ors and other embelishments it only made sense to add navigation icon support to Earth. You can add any FontAwesome icon you want to any or all of your navigation menu items. This can make it easier for your users to quickly identify

PSD Files Included

You asked, and we made some layered psd files for Earth. These are useful for creating mockups for clients before you tweak the CSS of the theme to show them what their website is going to look like. To get a taste of what the psds include, you can get the Earth Homepage PSD for FREE only on PSDExplorer.

    Not able to preview it.
  2. I bought version 1.9 back in March of 2013. Is there a way to upgrade to 3.0 or do I need to purchase it again?

      Hi Shayne, Upgrades are FREE! You just have to log into your ThemeForest account and re-download the theme and it will be the latest version. Please have a look at the important messages on the changelog:
  3. What Event plugin is being used for this theme? It is quite good and looks great. We have been using this theme for about 6 months and have received many compliments from customers. Thanks!

      Hi Eric, the event system in this theme is built-in. I made this theme before there were any popular event plugins.

    Would you consider pulling it out and having it available as a separate plugin...or do you have a similar plugin? It is simple and works perfectly for WP sites that do not have many events.

    I have a copy of version 3 running but i can't get the background image option to stick. either under theme options or customize. Is there any know fault? I appears when i add it under customize in the preview pane but as soon as i close the window (tab), it vanishes and the preview thumbnail shows a broking IMG link.

    Hello, I just started managing this blog that has your theme. I am having trouble with the gallery but I cannot tell whether it is the built in gallery or it is using a `plugin that is not longer working. If you click on any photo it opens a page with the title of the photo and nothing else. Could you help me?

      Hi! We provide support for our premium themes via Themeforest or Creative Market (depending on which theme you've purchased). For Earth please log into Themeforest via the profile used to purchase the theme (this is the only way for us to verify that the theme was not illegally downloaded) and leave us a support comment on the theme page or contact us via our seller profile. We'd be happy to help :-)
