We’re all about saving the earth, and it was bout time we saved ours! Our Earth Eco/Environmental WordPress Theme was long overdue for a complete overhaul. We’ve added loads of great new features to the theme that we’re sure you’re going to love!Get Earth 3.0 Preview Earth 3.0
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.
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.
