This template comes with an interesting feature that allows you to globally control each background section of your website, for every post or page. You can set a different color or a custom image background for predefined sections like title, header, page, footer, and sidebars.

We have tested Jupiter’s default demo on different page speed tests and the content loads at a high speed.
The demos don’t come with the theme’s package, and you have to register on the author’s page and download them from the website repository.
Although Jupiter theme provides Google and Typekit fonts, you cannot add custom typography.
With no translation options integrated, the author provides .po and .mo files in the theme package. But you need to install a language editor, like Poedit, Polylang or others.
