See this theme in action.

This theme is perfect for a smart, sophisticated website. The full-screen background image smoothly fades as each page is selected. This can be easily changed using a custom page attribute. The background images are pre-loaded for fast, smooth animations.

The navigation menu is automatically generated and you can choose which pages appear using a custom page attribute.

All content is pre-loaded so there are no page refreshes. This makes it perfect for a content-sparse website with up to 6-7 pages.

The content of the static footer bar can be customised using a scrapbook/stack item.

11 different styles you can customise including: logo colour, navigation background/text, heading colour and footer background colour.

Each content window has a "close" button (top right) which will cause the area to "explode" into tiny boxes. These are then re-assembled in a neat animation when the next page is navigated to. This is simply stunning!


  • Full-screen background images which can be set on a page-by-page basis
  • 2 page types included: default, home
  • 11 customisable CSS elements
  • You can change the look and feel of the template quite significantly
  • Built-in scrollbar for content area
  • Google Web Fonts integration ('PT Sans Narrow' used for all text and 'Lobster' for headings)
  • Use of scrapbook/stack items for "logo" and "footer links", with fallbacks if none available
  • Standard naming convention used for editable areas for easy application of theme to existing websites
