Having to work with a WordPress theme that does not allow you complete freedom of layout design is enough to keep you awake at nights. Templates are of some help, in that they may allow you to deliver a fully-functional, clean-looking website, but there’s a better way.
Have you ever considered working with a “concept” as a starting point?
The wonderful thing about a concept is you it allows you to modify, remix, and recreate throughout the design process to your heart’s content. Uncode allows you to do exactly that.
Uncode not only has delightful visual concepts to work with, it has some pretty amazing features as well; features you’re sure to fall in love with.
More than 15,000 web designers can attest to that.

Seven Awesome Websites from Uncode’s Showcase
This website was built for a digital art and web design specialist. This designer’s impressive work is highlighted by a subtle, yet impressive parallax effect in the header. Portfolio categories with sample images are also displayed on this attractive website’s homepage.
This Baker’s Cousin blog illustrates what happens when candy recipes and eye candy web design get together. Clean layouts and clever effects on the home page do a superb job of presenting these tasty treats in all their glory.
Adaptive images play a key role as well.
It’s said that good design should be invisible. This photographer’s portfolio bears that out. Each homepage image links to a page that showcases the project it belongs to. This is a good example of the effect of smart organization combined with design simplicity.

The web designer’s homepage provides an excellent example of the smart use of white space and typography, and the ability to capture the interior design principles followed by the website’s owner, and put them in the proper perspective.

What Makes Uncode Different?
For starters, Uncode is the first theme to prove that when you design a website with WordPress, you needn’t be confronted with strict rules or limitations. If you can think of it, you can build it.
Uncode offers tremendous flexibility. It enables you to create an unlimited number of websites, each one different from the next; even if you were to use the same starting point for each one. There are many different concepts of course; giving you that many choices as to what your starting point will be.
Here’s a taste of what comes in this unique theme:
- The Adaptive Grid System, the most advanced grid system of any WP theme; with all the options, elements, and juicy combinations you could think of.
- The most Masonry/Isotope and Carousel grid layouts you’ll find anywhere. You can use them in portfolios, for blog posts, for online stores, web pages, and – whatever.
- Hierarchical Theme Options, a cascade options system that you can define as a single type, or at the page level.
- The capability to create a color or typographic set that is available whenever a need for it arises.
- A native header solution that you can adjust to match your creative vision.
- An Adaptive Image system. Instead of having to worry about visitors’ screen sizes, the system detects the screen size and makes the appropriate changes – while maintaining optimum performance.
The Autumn Theme Update Brings Even More Exciting Features
The following major updates were incorporated into Uncode’s Autumn release.
Using the Related Posts on the Portfolio Agency concept.
Displaying related posts can improve your SEO rankings. Related posts increase page views, and tend to keep visitors on your site or within your domain for a longer time. As a result, you should see a reduction in the bounce rate. The best way to display related posts is between the content and comments sections of a page.
Sticky and Hide Menu on Mobile Devices
The idea of the sticky menu came from within the Uncode community. A sticky or fixed menu remains fixed while scrolling in a mobile view. The mobile user has the option of displaying the menu or hiding it. This option presents the web designer with some attractive options that will only increase as small screens get higher resolution.
This is how the sticky, hidden menu looks on mobile, as demonstrated on Uncode’s Creative Artist concept.
New Menu Layouts
The Shop Landing concept is used as the basis for this beautiful overlay centered menu.
The overlay centered menu is one of two menu option included in the Autumn update. This brings the total number of menu layouts to nine.
The Overlay Centered Menu – This off-canvas menu slides in from outside the viewport, pushing the page sideways. The menu items are centered and are vertically aligned.
The Center Split Menu – This menu displays the logo in the center of the screen. The menu items are positioned to the left and right of the logo.
