Ultra is a WordPress theme that definitely sticks out from the rest! Showcased as one of the most powerful and flexible, this theme comes packed with amazing layout options that’ll allow users to easily build sites quickly and beautifully.

Ever heard of the phrase “time is money”? Themify seems to know this all too well. Founded six years ago, this WordPress company has focused on building beautiful responsive sites faster and easier. With their signature Builder, they’ve created a powerful tool that allows users to simply drag and drop modules on both the front and backend making it easy to use when designing pages/posts.

With regular update enhancements, the Builder has become a must-have tool for both coders and non-coders as it combines flexibility and simplicity needed to design any type of site. The cool thing about Themify is that they’ve packed the Builder into all of their 53+ themes, allowing users to use the demo layouts, and the Builder, to manage the content. Whether it’s building a site for a business, creating a portfolio, or a landing page, Themify’s wide selection of themes and Builder got you covered.

A WordPress theme that definitely sticks out from the rest is its flagship theme – Ultra! Showcased as the most powerful and flexible WordPress theme, this theme comes packed with amazing layout options that’ll allow you to easily build sites quickly and beautifully. Paired together with the Builder, it gives users full control of the entire theme design, from the header all the way to the footer. Especially with their recent update, they’ve now added pre-made sites where a user can simply choose a skin, click import demo, and within minutes get a beautiful, responsive website.

Ultra Theme Main Features

Single Click Import Website Demos:

A newly added, but quickly became one of its most popular feature, is its skins and pre-made demo sites! The skin not only transforms the site’s design appearance, but can also help users setup a real sample site within minutes. With just a single click, users can import the demo set up that includes the theme settings, content, menus, widgets, etc., exactly like the theme demos. This is a time saver for creating client sites.

9 Bonus Builder addons:

To get the exact same layouts as the pre-made sites, Themify has added 9 free Builder addons (valued at $90) when the Ultra theme is purchased. This is great as users can still use the addon when building page layouts; this isn’t restricted to be used with the pre-made sites.

60+ Pre-designed Layouts:

This is by far, one of my favorite features if you’re looking for a specific page design, such as a landing page. The Ultra theme also allows users to import up to 60+ pre-designed layouts. These layouts are beautiful, responsive, and utilize various features such as slider backgrounds, video backgrounds, parallax scrolling, custom styling, animations, and more. The best part is that it’s built using the drag and drop Builder, meaning that you can easily customize the layout anyway you’d like.

Smart Layout Options:

A key feature that makes Ultra stand out of the rest is it gives you full control from header to footer, either site-wide or on a per-page basis. This means that users can make an entire site share the same look and feel or create a unique look for every page.

14 Header/Page Designs

The smart layout options comes with the ability for users to select a header/page design from 14 styles (the no header option is perfect for making landing pages where you don’t want to have header navigation). This list is continuously growing as they continue to release updates for it.

6 Header Backgrounds

Ultra brings a wide variety of header background options. It allows users to: upload a background image, pick a solid color, insert a slider, upload a video, set animating colors, or simply have it transparent.

6 Footer Layouts

It comes with 6 footer layouts that allows users to place the header, widgets, and footer content in different areas on the footer.

Mega Menu

The Mega menu is a cool feature that allows users to display recent posts, multi-column menus, and even the ability to add widgets into the menu.

3 Image Filters

This theme also eliminates the need for you to use Photoshop by adding image filters. It allows you to auto-apply Grayscale, Blur, and Sepia filters to images without editing the original image source. Image filter and hover filter can apply globally or individually.

Portfolio Post Type

Ultra includes an optional portfolio post type that works seamlessly with all of the post layouts available for the blog posts.
