Fall by Obox is a responsive theme for casual as well as professional bloggers designed for distraction free reading, featuring a masonry homepage. Fall is an adaption of The Writer, which was specifically developed to showcase long form content. The objective with Fall was to make a similar theme, but this time more suitable for business websites. In fact, Obox deploys Fall on their own website.
Obox Fall supports one WordPress 3 menu. By default, the menu is displayed at the top of a sliding sidebar that appears when clicking the menu icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen. However, you can also choose to display the menu centered on the page, just below the header.
The theme installs with three custom widgets:
- Facebook Like Box
- Social Links
- Twitter Stream
This Obox theme incorporates one widget area – included in the already mentioned sliding sidebar.
Fall offers the following page templates:
- Full Width
For every single post and page, you have the ability to define your custom Fall Options; add a header background color and image, select a color for the title, enter a video link or add a video embed code.
The OCMX Theme Options panel includes the following pages:
- Customize Colors
The General page serves four tabs:
- General Options
At the General Options you can upload your logo and favicon, choose to show or hide the site header and/or tagline, and display or hide the post excerpts on index pages, as well as post and page meta details.
When you opt to hide the post excerpt, the blog pages will only display the Featured Image, the header and some post meta.
With the settings under the Footer tab, you are able to customize the footer – or hide it completely.
This is also the place where you enter the Google Analytics code.
At the Social tab, you have the opportunity to enable or disable social sharing to Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
You can enter a custom RSS URL, like for instance Feedburner, and any Custom CSS within the Customization settings.
At the Typography page, you have the opportunity to pick one of the 36 fonts and set your preferred font-size for the following elements:
- Page Title
- Post Meta
- Post Titles
- Post Copy
- Widget Titles
- Footer Widget Titles
Hitting the Customize Colors item launches the WordPress Theme Customizer allowing you to further customize the design of Fall.
Besides a link to the theme documentation, the Help page offers guidance in creating content and setting up the homepage.
Obox Fall regularly checks for available updates. The Update page gives you a choice between an auto-update and a manual update.OboxThemes offers you a choice out of three pricing options:
- Standard Pack
- Premium Pack
- All Theme Package
The price of the Standard Pack is $79. Besides the theme, this package includes access to technical support for one year, the layered image (PSD) files, and future theme updates.
The Premium Pack comes at $139, and extends the benefits of the Standard Pack with two years of prioritized technical support, and two years of advanced support assistance (guidance with CSS changes).
With the All Theme Package, you not only get every Obox Theme, but also all Obox Plugins. In addition, the All Theme Package entitles you to one full year of prioritized technical support, and one year of advanced support assistance.
The sign-up fee for the All Theme Package is $299. After the first year, you can choose to renew the All Theme Package for another year for just $99.
Hence, for a little more than two Premium Packs in the first year, and only little more than one time in the following years, you get access to every Obox theme and plugin.
Several themes by Obox are also available from ThemeForest.
