The Writer by Obox is a responsive theme for writers with a minimal design, that displays a grid with the featured images on the homepage.
Obox The Writer supports natively one WordPress 3 menu – at the top of a sliding sidebar, which appears when clicking the menu icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
The theme installs with three custom widgets:
- Facebook Like Box
- Social Links
- Twitter Stream
This Obox theme incorporates one widget area – the already mentioned sliding sidebar.
The Writer offers the following collection of page templates:
- Full Width
For every single post and page, you have the ability to define your custom The Writer 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
The General Options let you upload you logo and favicon, customize the site header, display or hide the post excerpts on index pages, as well as post and page meta details.
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 your custom RSS URL, like Feedburner, and Custom CSS at Customization.
At the Typography page, you define which of the 36 fonts and font-size you want to apply 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 about 10 design elements.
Besides a link to the theme documentation, the Help page offers guidance in creating content and setting up the homepage. Obox The Writer check for updates automatically, when an update is available.
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.
