Flatshop by Themify is a responsive theme for online shops, powered by WooCommerce, featuring parallax scrolling and fly-in animation, several custom post types and a drag-and-drop Page Builder.
The theme supports natively one WordPress menu. This navigation menu appears, together with the Social Header icons, in a right sidebar by toggling the menu icon in the upper right corner – next to the cart icon.
Themify Flatshop installs with nine custom widgets:
- Banners & Links
- Feature Posts
- List Categories
- List Pages
- Most Commented
- Recent Comments

Flatshop comes with support for the WooCommerce plugin, which extends the theme with e-commerce functionality. Enabling WooCommerce increases the available custom widgets with another 15 to utilize your online store.
The theme incorporates six widget areas:
- Social – Header
- Social – Footer
- three Footer columns
The theme adds modules to the WordPress menu for its custom post types: Slider, Highlights, Sections, Portfolios, and Testimonials. Each of these custom post types comes with its own categories.
The Slider post type lets you create a text with the editor, upload an image and set its dimensions. Furthermore, you have the ability to attach an external URL, and a Lightbox Link. You are offered three options regarding the Slide Layout.
A Highlight post consists of text, usually with an image (icon) and a heading. You can use Highlights to display specialties, key services, and (product) features. Besides creating a text, you get the opportunity to upload a Featured Image, set its dimensions, add an external URL, and a Lightbox Link.
Portfolio posts let you showcase your projects. Portfolio post allow you to upload a Featured Image, set its dimensions, and hide the post info – all or only partially. Furthermore, you are able to attach an external link as well as a lightbox link.
The Testimonial post type includes custom fields for the Featured Image, the Author Name and Title. In addition, you get the chance to set the image width and height, and attach an external link and a lightbox link.

The Themify Builder offers the following modules: Accordion, Box, Callout, Divider, Gallery, Highlight, Image, Map, Menu, Portfolio, Post, Slider, Tab, Testimonial, Text, and Video.
The Themify Builder is available for pages and posts – including the custom post types. The article Drag & Drop Web Pages with the Themify Builder describes this visual content builder in more detail.
The Flatshop Theme Options panel comprehends four tabs:
At the Styling tab you can personalize the body, header wrap, body (middle) wrap and the footer wrap.

The styling options of Themify themes are quite comprehensive.
The Skins tab is the place where you select you desired color scheme. You can choose from eight predefined color schemes. You can further personalize the default settings of a specific skin at the Styling tab. Another option is to create a new skin – from scratch or based upon an existing one. Your custom skin will appear on the skins page as an additional theme style.
The Transfer tab facilitates the import and export of your theme settings, which you can deploy for back-up purposes or in order to transfer the theme settings to another web server.
The options of the Settings tab are divided over:

The General section allows you to upload your favicon, enter custom Header and Footer code, a custom RSS Feed, as well import a Google Webfonts Subset.
With Default Layouts you have the ability to select your default page layout – which can be either one, two, three or even four columns – and set your preferred sidebar position or have no sidebar at all.
In addition, you can enter the dimensions for the thumbnails as displayed on index pages and within single post pages, and hide post details as well as the Featured Image.
The Theme Settings let you select your preferred Gallery Lightbox, enter the contact details including the Google Map Address, disable (automatic) inifinite scroll, and enable the fixed header.
