Welcome back to our Best WordPress Themes series where we present top professional WordPress templates. This time we are gonna check out the highly responsive, modern looking Kallyas theme.
Kallyas is full width, multi-purpose WordPress theme with very clean, easy to read layout. It fully utilizes WEB2.0 using HTML5 and CSS3 to provide user best experience. I really love all these little touches like animated icons, back to the top button sliding in at the bottom of the page, on hover animations, image carousels or animated header. Seems like lots of love were put into this WordPress template.
The Main Page of the theme provides user with really pleasant first impression – central place is taken by proper sized slider, underneath it (but still over the fold) there is space for wide featured posts with images, testimonials or other things. Amount of different sliders featured by the Kallyas theme is impressive – there is iOS Slider, Creative Slider (based on Revolution Slider), three Fixed Sliders (Flex Slider, Nivo Slider, Wow Slider), 3D Cute Slider, Fancy Slider, Circular Content, Portfolio Slider Devices (based on Revolution Slider), Portfolio Slider Frames, Laptop Slider, iCarousel and CSS Panels. If you prefer something simpler, you can use great variety of Static Content.
One of the biggest features of KallyasWordPress theme is easy to use, drag and drop Page Builder which allows you to fully customize your pages in visual, intuitive way – no coding required. Template offers 69 elements that you can use in your designs (including 45 elements for content), most of them can have different styles. You can reorder elements by drag and drop and set their individual widths. You can also create unlimited number of sliders and use them on your pages.
If you don’t have time to manually setup your pages, out of the box KallyasWordPress theme offers several page layouts: along standard full width, left sidebar, right sidebar, 404 Error, Contact Us (with BEAUTIFULLY implemented Google Map) and FAQ there are more interesting ones: Coming Soon page which is a nice countdown showing time to an event, Historic Page that is timeline with events marked on it, Testimonials with different block quotes styles, smart Team Page and Services Page. All of these pages are highly interactive and pleasant to browse – I had an urge to hover my mouse over all elements on each page just to check what’s gonna happen. I was actually entertained by the theme.
Theme comes with three different Portfolio styles – Category ( 1 to 4 columns), Sortable (by tags, dates and names – asc or desc) and Carousel (where each project images can be displayed as carousel). All three do the job as expected. There are also templates for Sitemap, Gallery (unlimited number of galleries with drag and drop reordering) and Blog.
Kallyas comes with dummy data, so you can be up and running quickly. Theme supports Google Analytics, is SEO optimized and ready for translations (including WPML). Template is fully responsive, which means you can view it on devices with different screen sizes and it scales nicely out of the box.There is Newsletter implemented which allows easy integration of MailChimp.

Template comes with free pricing tables – something that usually you have to buy separately. Kallyas uses Google Web Fonts, giving you access to over 500 fonts. There is set of 140 icon glyphs and three different styles for images. Creating nice looking tables is very easy as well with theme styles. If you are into social media, there are three sets of social icons (black and white, colored, colored on hover) – 41 icons in each set. Kallyas supports different styles of buttons, 3 styles for accordions and 4 styles of tabs. There is even QR code generator. How cool is that?
Theme options are really easy to use – they are located on separate menu item in WordPress menu and everything is well described using tool tips. The documentation is also very good. If you want to change the visuals, template comes with lots of PSD files.
