Theme Info & Details
The Hayden WordPress theme created by ThemeTrust is a premium theme for business, portfolio or agency websites, but features a clean design with several options making it great for almost any type of site you need.
The Hayden design is fully responsive so it will adjust to your screensize allowing visitors from mobile devices to easily access your site. Often responsive themes aren’t too great, but having a look at the Hayden theme it appears to have been well thought out and the responsiveness is great!
What We Like About The Hayden Theme
I do really like the large homepage slider, this is very trendy these days and in their demo it looks fantastic with the menu overlaid on the top right. I also really like the responsiveness of the theme, it seems like they took some time to make sure it looked good. Full-width portfolio posts are also nice and allow for great customization since they are so simple.
What Could Be Improved in the Hayden Theme
The portfolio page appears to be using a custom page template. I’m a fan of using archive templates instead because it makes use of core functions and if your are using breadcrumbs on your site such as the one in WordPress SEO by yoast, then your single portfolio items will link back to your main archive.
This is just a small pet peeve of mine, but I see some custom CSS being outputted in the source code by the theme in the demo but it’s got tons of blank space. It would be easily to remove all the white space so any custom CSS added to the source code is fully compressed.
