As announced few weeks ago, Candidate is finally updated.
New update is made with Bootstrap 3 and Underscores framework; house made options framework is changed and powerful Redux is integrated in Candidate. It allows unlimited color and background options and you can control almost any part of theme.
Custom post types are removed from theme – based on Envato’s new rules of submission, but don’t worry, this allows you to choose what to have on your site.
Theme is WooCommerce 2+ ready and you finally have chance to use all new features of this great plugin on Candidate theme.
Events are handled by Modern Tribe’s Events Calendar – at the moment, theme is compatible only with free version, but we plan to make it ready for Events Calendar PRO version, too.
Home page slider is completely removed and changed with probably the best premium slider plugin ever – Slider Revolution. This $19 worth plugin is included in theme package!
Galleries now support more than one image per album and this is handled by our small and super fast house made plugin.
Testimonials and FAQ entries are handled by another two great free plugins – Testimonials by WooThemes and FAQ by Arconix. Styles are completely included – as well as enhanced scripts and one testimonial widget of our own.
New things are team management and features – also made by WooThemes.
There are more than 300 possible layout of home page, 6 blog layouts, 6 album layouts, 3 possible layouts of team page. You can choose between 4 different hover effects, three different campaign trail layouts.
Also, because of great interest and requests of our customers – campaign trail and countdown can be removed separately!
There is much more, but you will see it when you update theme on your site – so, navigate to ‘Downloads’ section of your Envato profile and grab theme update as soon as possible, because we will support Candidate v1 only till mid of next month.
Once again, sorry for almost two years without an update.
Oh yes: http://themeblossom.net/candidate is new URL of demo site.
