“Evolution” – the Ultimate Responsive Theme

evolution theme by elegant themes There was a time when all you had to think about, when deciding on the layout of your website, was the most popular screen resolutions.

But now, you have to consider mobile devices… phones, tablets, netbooks and anything else that lets you browse when you’re on the move.

Fortunately Elegant Themes has brought out Evolution a responsive WordPress theme that adapts to your user’s screen size automatically and instantly.

Now your website will display beautifully on whatever device is being used to browse.

Evolution uses CSS3 media queries to trigger different layout sets at various screen sizes.

This provides a seamless way for the layout to degrade at smaller sizes, as the design can change on the fly without any page loading and without any tricky javascript.

If you want to know what mobile devices are accessing your site, take a peek at your Google Analytics and check out Overview > Mobile > Operating system.

This is a list of mobile devices taken from my Google Analytics for this site…
Apple iPhone, Apple iPad, Apple iPod Touch, HTC Desire, HTC Desire Z, Samsung GT-I9000, Galaxy S, Samsung GT-I9100, Galaxy S II, SonyEricsson LT15i, Xperia Arc, Verizon Droid.

Looks as though more and more of us are browsing with our moble devices… and the numbers are about to really take off.


“Evolution” comes with lots of Features

Don’t think that the Evolution theme is just a theme for mobile devices, it has all the features you’d expect from one of Nick Roach’s Elegant Themes:

  1. Four colour schemes – Evolution comes with a choice of four colour schemes: White, Blue, Green and Red.
  2. Page based or Blog-style structure – you can set up your site as a CMS with a Page-Based structure or as a traditional blog.
  3. Fully responsive design – Evolution’s design is fully responsive, so it will automatically adapt to the smaller screen when viewed on mobile phones and tablets.
  4. Automated thumbnail resizing – Evolution utilizes timthumb to automatically resize your thumbnail images. This means that only one thumbnail image is required per post, even though various thumbnail sizes are used in the theme.
  5. Advertising management – With Evolution you can place 125×125 banner images in your sidebar and 468×60 ads to your post pages. Advertisements are handled from within wp-admin, and can be turned on and off as you wish.

All the features that you’d expect from an Elegant Theme, but it’s nice to have them anyway.

When using Evolution, there is no need to use third party mobile plugins or alternate mobile themes. Evolution will display beautifully on smaller screens due to its responsive nature. It will even change when the phone or tablet is flipped between portrait and landscape mode through the use of CSS3 media queries.
