The Electa WordPress theme offers a grid-based portfolio for agencies, individuals, and any type of organization that needs to share images with clients. One of the standout features from Electa would be the fact that you can connect it to the WooCommerce online store plugin, allowing you to sell items like photographs or any other digital or physical products. What’s cool about the integration is that it actually turns into a full eCommerce store with product galleries and a checkout area, whereas other themes aren’t as flexible. What’s more is that Electa offers several page layouts that combine nicely with the amazing drag and drop editor from SiteOrigin. If you’ve used this page builder you know how easy it is to use, and it’s not too often that you can find a free WordPress theme that combines well with it.
The standard homepage setup shows a block layout with beautiful images from your portfolio or company. You might even take advantage of this configuration if you’d like to link to blog posts (like if you’re a travel or food blogger). Each portfolio item reveals imagery when scrolled over. So you might categorize or title the photography to better guide your customers through the website. Not only that, but the theme allows for animations when users scroll over the portfolio pieces. Another reason to consider the Electa WordPress theme is because of the built-in social media buttons. These have simple branding, but you can change the color of the buttons and just about every other element on the website. Overall, the Electa theme works wonders as a portfolio theme, and it has that added bonus of converting into a full fledged eCommerce site.
