Features of Themify Ultra

Let’s take a look at some of its features below.
Instant Demo Content Importer
Most themes require you to do lots of customization on them if you want to create a design that looks exactly like the demo site. However, Themify Ultra lets you create the demo site setup with just a single click.
Once you activated the theme, you’ll be asked to choose a demo design as an optional choice. You can import the demo content with just a single click. After importing, you can edit the content to make the site look unique.
Themify Ultra gives you 7 different demo skins to choose from. They are…
Parallax Scrolling & Responsive
Themify Ultra supports many animation effects such as parallax scrolling. Parallax scrolling helps you to move the background content at a different speed than that of foreground content when your visitors scroll down a page.
By default, parallax scrolling is disabled on mobile and tablet in order to keep your site loading fast. You can change the settings by going to Themify Ultra » Themify Settings. Then, click on Themify Builder and change the animation effects per your needs.
You can also customize the responsive breakpoints on that same page.
Tons of Layout Options
Themify Ultra gives you a wide range of layout options to choose from. You can either choose the same look and feel for your entire site or make a unique look for certain pages. You’ll get…
- 15 header/page styles

- 6 archive layouts
- 6 header background options
You can set the default layouts by navigating to Themify Ultra » Themify Settings » Default Layouts
Flexible Portfolio Options
Upon the theme installation, you’ll be asked to install Themify Portfolio Post plugin.
This plugin gives you the ability to add portfolios to your site as a new post type, meaning you can publish portfolio content on your site the same way you publish posts and pages. You can find the Portfolios tab in the sidebar menu on your WordPress dashboard.
On the portfolio post editor, you can find the Portfolio Categories options, just like a typical post category option.
To customize the portfolio page layouts, you can go to Themify Ultra » Themify Settings » Portfolio Layouts.
Similar to post and page editors, Portfolios editor page also comes bundled with the drag and drop builder.

Tweak Templates With Hook Content

Despite the small learning curve, using the hook content option is very convenient way to tweak your theme’s template.
