Purpose by OrganicThemes is a responsive theme for business websites, that comes with support for Featured Videos, WordPress Post Formats, Gravity Forms, and WooCommerce.
Organic Purpose supports one WordPress 3 menu – right aligned, in the upper right-hand corner of your web pages.
Since OrganicThemes supplies its themes as lightweight as possible, the theme installs with just the default WordPress widgets.
Purpose comes with support for the WooCommerce plugin. By activating this plugin several additional widgets become available to utilize your online store.
The Purpose theme incorporates five widgetized areas:
- Page Sidebar
- Blog Sidebar
- Post Sidebar
- Left Sidebar
- Footer Widgets
This theme offers the following collection of page templates:
- Full Width
- Three Column
Purpose extends the default WordPress Edit Post screen with two meta boxes; the Featured Video Embed Code box, and a Format section where you set the preferred WordPress Post Format. You can choose from these post formats:
The Theme Options are fully integrated with the WordPress customizer, and include:
- Site Title & Tagline
- Header Image
- Background Image
- Home Page
- Page Templates
- Social Links
- Static Front Page
Your first option is to upload an image for the site Logo.
The Site Title & Tagline section allow you to change the Site Title and Tagline as entered at the WordPress General Settings.
With the Colors option you can customize the color for the body background, menu background, link color, link hover, color, heading link color, and heading link hover color.
The Header Image settings allow you to upload an image of 1800 by 600 pixels for the website’s header.
In case you prefer a background image, you can upload this at the Background Image option.
You can select the Header Menu of your choice at the Navigation entry.
The Home Page section of the theme options is an important one, since this is where you compose your homepage. First you select the category for the Featured Image Slideshow and set the slideshow transition interval.
Next you decide what content you want to display below the slideshow. For this purpose, you can select up to three pages. These pages are presented full content width, and the Featured Image – when any – will be used as a background image for the page. Selecting no pages at all is also a possibility.
The last option concerning the homepage is selecting a category for the Featured News section. Since this news is displayed in three columns, it is recommended to choose a multiple of three for these blog posts.
So, when you activate all options for the homepage, it will be composed from:
- up to 3 pages
- 3 or more blog posts
- footer widgets
For a live example, please check the demo.
The Page Templates section allows you to tweak your blog and portfolio pages. Here you set the Blog Template Category, and the number of posts you want to show on index pages.
The portfolio options let you choose between a one, two or three column layout, set the Portfolio Template Category and show or hide the portfolio title and excerpt. When you prefer to display only the Featured Image of portfolio posts, you should opt for ‘hide’ here.
The Social Links let you enter the URLs to your profiles with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, and GitHub – as well as your e-mail address. The respective icons are displayed in the lower-right corner of your web pages.
The Widgets section lets you add your preferred widgets to the Post Sidebar and Footer Widgets.
