Magic

Magic is a premium and elegant multipurpose WordPress theme designed by Jetimpex, one of the Template Monster authors. The theme comes pre-packed with a bunch of ready-made pages, custom widgets, and plugins. With the Magic theme, you can build websites like personal blogs, online stores, and others.

Design

Magic comes with a fully responsive and retina ready layout. Therefore, your website will be scaled down to the screen size of any handheld device without losing the quality. Except for the default design, it offers four ready-to-use skins and six homepage styles: commercial, creative, personal, minimal, modern and business. Each of them has a clear structure and smart design. To add dynamics to your website you can use the parallax scrolling and background video integration.

Magic comes with 7 pre-designed headers and 3 footer layouts. You can choose between various header styles: horizontal or vertical, use simple dropdowns or provide a better navigation experience with the MegaMenu functionality. Also, you can even hide the main menu under a compact hamburger button if you like. As for the footer, you can create a ‘Megafooter’ area including plenty of auxiliary information, or you can minimize it to just one line. However, you are not limited with this options only, since the options offer other opportunities for customization.

The theme includes the custom drag and drop page composer, called ‘Power Builder.’ It provides 25+ modules, a library of presets and advanced configuration options. Thanks to the handy drag and drop functionality you can customize the pages in the visual mode. This would be especially appreciated by the beginners as it doesn’t require any coding skills. Live Customizer integration allows you to observe all the changes on the fly.

With the premium Revolution Slider allows you to display the content in various ways, i.e. as a slideshow, carousel, hero scene, etc. It is also supplied with various transition effects to provide even better visual experience.

The theme is integrated with Google Web Fonts, which allows you to enrich your website’ look by choosing the most suitable typography.

Full social integration will help you to keep your audience updated and to build a strong online presence in social networks. You can also easily use the designs with MailChimp.

Functionality
