In terms of your website footer, there are numbers of columns that you can choose from (1 to 4), and you are allowed to customize it all according to how you want your website to look like. The Stockholm theme developers have ensured that they include all the features that you will need to build any kind of website.
Also, you have the Visual Composer feature which comes with your Stockholm theme package. This is one of the most widely used plugins in the world right now and the theme also comes with other elements like the portfolio galleries, call to action text with icon, styled blockquotes, pie charts, counters, pricing tables and a lot more.
After signing up for the Stockholm theme, you will be giving access to 14-page templates and you are allowed to use any. The default page that you will see when you start the program is a standard page with a boxed layout for Blog Animated, Centered, Chequered, Large Image, Masonry, Masonry Full Width, and Pinterest Full Width.
You will also be provided with a contact page and full-screen sections. If you are building a page website, you will find the full-screen sections to be very important because if visitors scroll, the whole section will unfold and take them to the next section of the page.
There are other important extra features that come with the Stockholm theme, and they are all worth mentioning in this review, especially if you are a professional WordPress site builder. You will be provided with features like 13 widget areas and custom sidebars. Once in a while, the theme will add new custom post types to your site and you can make use of these post types by using the unique elements in your Visual Composer.
Stockholm also provides three different types of slider builders for your site. With your theme, you will be offered two other slider plugins for free (the LayerSlider and the Slider Revolution) that you can apply on your website.
Documentation and Customer Support
When it comes to documentation, the Stockholm theme has a basic knowledge base. This means you will need to find your way around a lot of features, which is quite discouraging especially for beginners. However, the customer support team is quite encouraging, responsive and if you come across any issue while using the theme and you can’t find anything relevant in the documentation, all you need to do is create a support ticket and they will reply you as soon as they get it.
When you subscribe to the theme, you will be getting six-month free support and you can extend it to 12 months.
Stockholm is an amazingly designed theme that is quite flexible, and I can assure you that your website will always look unique and exciting to visit. This is because it is impossible for two sites to have the same look even if you are both using their theme, thanks to a wide range of features. However, the only disadvantage of this theme is that it makes the theme a bit complex and the basic documentation that they offer does not really help much.
