The View Is Beautiful From The Vertex

The theme is responsive, so it will will display beautifully on all devices. The theme also comes with some great color and font custmization options, as well as custom header images, making it easy for anyone to make Vertex their own.

  1. Looks amazing. Can’t wait to use it for my next project!

    • Thanks Mayur :)

    • what i cant seem to get is how to add multiple “sections” such as a slider, and portfolio, and all that jazz to my front or home page like it is on the demo, can you do this last favor and help me get it like that.

      • If you need help, please open a ticket in our support forums so that our team can assist you.

  2. beautiful >>>>>>>>>>>> downloading

    • Thanks Ahmad, I am sure that the theme will serve you well :)

      • Hi Nick! I Already installed the theme and i Love it but I want to put my logo where de title is (Vertex), maybe in png format. Can I do that?

        Thanks!

        • You can input your logo image via the Appearances > Vertex Theme Options page. If you need further assistance, please open a ticket in our support forums so that our team can assist you.

  3. The new theme looks great guys! Quality work as usual ;)

    • Thanks AJ :)

  4. Looks awesome. Nice use of Open Sans font. Bold and beautiful.

    • Thanks Bharath. Open sans is definitely one of my favorite fonts on the Google web fonts list!

  5. Awesome, I’ve already got a project in mind to suit that theme !

    • Sounds like perfect timing :)

  6. The Portfolio page seems to be empty.

    Beautiful theme though!!!

    • Thanks George. You can also use our Portfolio or Image Gallery page templates if they are more to your liking. The portfolio would also look better with more projects – maybe I will add some more to the demo to fill out the page a bit more.

  7. Great theme!

    One thing I noticed is the header completely disappears for a a small part of the scrolling – maybe something to think about!

    • Thanks for the note Justin. I think it’s most important to have the navigation slide in once you are down the page a bit. We chose to have it slide in after the header, but this could be adjusted fairly easily.

      • Using this theme for a client, and they just don’t like the navigation sliding thing at all. How can we turn that off so that it just stays at the top of the page?

        • We will add a feature to disable it in the future. In the meantime, if you open a ticket in our support forums we may be able to assist you with this customization.

          • HI I was wondering the same thing… isn’t there a quick code to insert, perhaps in the header, to deactivate the sticky navigation.
            It seems to work fairly bad on mobile devices, making the top go white after you’ve scrolled down, and go up again…

            Please provide the code, and where to insert.

  8. Thank you so much!!…

    DOWNLOADING >>>>>

    Gallery is not working yet =(

    • Thanks for letting me know. I fixed the image gallery page template – everything is working in the demo now, I forgot to set them up :)

  9. Great theme Nick !

    Will try to use it for a new project. Should be nice.

    Thanks !

    • Sounds great, I am sure that Vertex will serve you will in your next project!

    • Thanks, I really like how it turned out as well :) We have enjoyed working more with animations in our last two themes.

  10. This theme is gorgeous. The effects and animation on it are simply stunning and I couldn’t ask for a better theme. Now I just need to find a way to use it! Great work ET team!

    • Thanks Geoffrey, I am sure that you will think of something :)

  11. Look! Really beautiful WordPress Theme with modern design. Photographers must fall in love with it. Cheer!

    • Thanks Alex. I am happy with how the theme turned out and I agree that it would be a great theme for photographers (web and graphic designers as well).

  12. This is an amazing lazy loading theme, nice clean and long format design. Great work ET :)

    • Thanks Dipak! The long format style is a trend that I am really enjoying.

    • Thanks!

  13. Nice theme. It has scrollbar on iPad. How can I make it fit better?

    • If you could please open a ticket in our support forums, then our team will be able to better assist you with any problems you are having. Sorry for the trouble!

  14. Wow, waiting is over……..

    It’s amazing and download also.

    • Hopefully it wasn’t too bad of a wait – we worked hard to get this one out fast :)

    • Thanks Wil, we appreciate it!

    • Thanks Toby, I am happy to share your excitement :) Stay tuned for more great themes in the future.

  15. yep!!

    This theme is realy amazing!

    Great Job!

    • Thanks Sascha!

  16. What no sneak peek! This is insane! Good job Nick! 8-)

    • Oh there was. My bad. 8(

      • If you don’t want to miss any more sneak peeks, be sure to subscribe to our blog via email and follow us on Facebook :)

  17. Looks like, Eleganttheme is getting more serious now, two themes in a single month :) amazing work!

    • Thanks Pete, we have been working hard :)

  18. Looks great!
    One point … It would be handy to get twin menu options as well as ecommerce functionality. I know a shop is not the purpose of the theme but you have some great themes why not enable a greater level of diversity….
    Top job guys! Keep up the wonderful work.

    • Thanks for the suggestion Chris, we will consider it if we have time.

  19. Great theme! Why is it that a lot of themes images are flashing or stuttering at scrolling on Safari .. On other browsers no problem.

    • I haven’t noticed any problems in Safari. If you open a ticket in our support forums we will be able to better assist you.

  20. Actually a bit disappointed in the last couple themes ET released.. Hope for some new options and designs soon that will blow my mind (like they used to do). Would love a new e-commerce theme that’s just clean and very customizable..

    • Got to say I really liked Foxy though!

      • I’m sorry to hear that you are not happy with our last two themes, considering that they are my two favorite themes in our collection :) What about the last two themes to you find disappointing other than the fact that they are not e-commerce themes? (We just released two eCommerce themes, Foxy and StyleShop, and we can’t only release one type of theme).

    • I have to agree with Caroline. This is a professional and lovely design — yet seems really geared only toward tablets and smartphones.

      The overall impact, for me, is that of a theme reduced to a responsive presentation on a smartphone. I keep wanting to “zoom out” so I can see the entire page.

      On my a widescreen monitor, it’s difficult to get any sense of what the site is offering overall (scrolling… SURPRISE! scrolling… SURPRISE!), which is kind of “fun,” I guess, and par for the course on mobile.

      Yet on a desktop or laptop, I find the overall effect somewhat disconcerting.

      Perhaps there is another dynamic at work that I’m not seeing; please, feel free to explain.

      • Thanks for the reply James, though I am not sure that I agree that the theme is geared for mobile. The fact that things “load in” as you scroll may seem like it’s a big difference that when viewing a normal site, when in reality things are always a “surprise” as they are always hidden below the view-port of your browser until you scroll down. The “lazy loading” effects are quick, and shouldn’t actually degrade the viewing experience as everything will already be visible by the time you stop moving your mouse and start to read. Instead they act to grab your attention as your explore the long format page.

        • Thanks, Nick. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond and explain to the less cutting-edge (like myself)!

          Cheers!

          • @James, the effect is blowing on lap or desk-top b’cos the lazy loading effects does the trick. The idea should be clear to you….to keep your visitor longer on your site cum motivate them to contact you or associate with your website. Did you see the parallax effect as well? That’s vogue in web design currently.

        • I actually like how the content fades in as we scroll down. very slick. makes normal scrolling see a little dull.

          • @Mark, Thanks to elegant themes for giving us modern animation effects

  21. Love it!!! I may switch to this one pretty soon!

    • Thanks Rochelle, that’s great to hear!

  22. your best theme ever !

    • Thanks! I would have to agree :)

  23. Nick and ET Team!

    I am more and more amazed by your creativity guys.
    Honestly, I can’t help but admire this theme in reverence and awe.
    That’s how wonderful it is! I thought you would never beat a storyteller “Fable”, but you proved once again that “Vertex” of your creativity is in this stunning theme. Fable and Vertex are my two the most favourite themes now. They outclass any other theme in the collection by a long stroll.
    I don’t know how it happens, but whenever I see a theme update e-mail from Elegant Themes in my inbox I get truly excited and happy.
    Thank you for the moments that you create!
    Looking forward to see some more creative masterpieces in the future!

    • Thanks Timur, I am glad that you love this theme as much as I do! My two favorite themes in our collection are Fable and Vertex, and I think the design direction that I have taken with these two releases is a big step forward.

  24. Right ON NICK! Ya def Took it to the Next Level man!$ (luv the sticky header, mobile friendly/responsiveness, ajax/lazy loading, fixed background images!/bit of parallax.. curious, no way to ‘fix on mobile’, some css we could add?) Wooo Hoooo!!

    • Thanks Sterling :) I am not sure what you mean by “no way to fix on mobile.” If clarify, then maybe we can help you out.

  25. Web Adonis! Vertex is the most insightful theme ever seen in your collection. Love the “team” effects,and even the “fixed” navigation bar that follows you as you climb down! Every effects in the front page is mind-blowing.

    However, I observed that the project/product showcase in the home page takes our visitor away from the beautiful climb down instead of option to view (in the same window-fancy box effect) or navigate to the page link as you always code your portfolio or gallery template.

    Aside that, the theme caught me pants down! More glorious days for elegant theme. I love you folks. With this I’m considering to be a life elite member.Cheers!

    • Thanks, I am glad that you like the theme! Thanks for the suggestions as well – they are surely noted.

      • Ok. Nick thanks for considering the observation. Cheers!

    • Thanks! We put a lot of emphasis on mobile we all of our themes, as it will continue to be a growing percentage of everyone’s traffic.

  26. Hi,

    The theme looks beautiful!

    Is it possible to have a video at the top of the homepage?

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    • Thanks Brandon. Unfortunately the theme does not come with an option to add video to the header.

      • Hi Nick,

        If I had a designer/programmer add a video and opt-in box in the header would it also appear in the section just above the footer?

        I noticed the header image displays near the bottom of the theme as well and I’m sure if that is a duplication of the header image?

        Thanks,
        Brandon

        • *not sure

      • Hey !

        Is there a way to add a video on the homepage ? I’m not an expert in coding but I really need to add this video. Do you have an idea ?

        Thanks in advance !

  27. As usual, always stunning. You make it hard to stick to one theme and really like the floating menu, very intuitive & great usability.

    Top drawer mate!

    • Thanks George!

  28. This truly is a beautiful design. You guys are fantastic at creating well functioning and eye pleasing themes.

    Thanks

    • Thanks John! I am pleased that you are pleased :)

  29. Absolutely stunning WordPress Theme. Another great work of art from the Elegant Themes team :)

    • Thanks Mark! Stay tuned for more great themes :)

  30. Nice looking theme. Great work by ET team. Loving your subscription.

  31. Absolutely stunning theme. I like how you have made it possible to use this theme with all possible devices.

    I generally don’t write feedback but man… this was really good. Few things I did observe though:
    1. Featured slider does not work on iPad 2 or android (2.3.7) phone. – I don’t see the > arrow to view the next article. Couldn’t check with other versions. Works perfectly on desktops
    2. Need to be able to change the text color of the menu (currently white). When scrolling down, if the background is white, the text color makes it impossible to view menu
    3. Additional Menu items get wrapped around and hence when scrolling down, they come over on new line and out of the green header. Again, these being white, these don’t work well on a white background of the page. Noticed when there was 7th menu there.
    4. Need to be able to reduce the font size for the logo text and menu items (Just slightly).

    My site is still under development and has lorem ipsum on it. But it may give you some idea.

    I must congratulate you on a wonderful theme. Great work!!!

    Regards,
    Ritesh

  32. Great theme, pixel perfect! I’m thinking of redoing my portfolio site and the Vertex theme suits that a treat!

    Cheers for sharing Nick.

    Laurence

    • Thanks Laurence. I am sure that Vertex will serve you well :)

  33. Responsive themes are definitely the future, I browse so many sites on my iPhone these days, I hate it when I find one that isn’t responsive.

  34. This theme is what convinced me purchase a subscription. More like this please!

    I made this with it for a client:

    http://rockchallengetasmania.com

    (still working out some of the kinks)

  35. Does Vertex use the /#! (AJAX) programming that you have in other themes?

    Thanks
    Ray

    • Vertex does not use AJAX.

  36. Vertex is truly amazing and beautiful. Good job!:) Congrats!

  37. A great looking theme! Keep up the great work, you produce amazing themes!

  38. this is another greatest wordpresstheme from elegantthemes

  39. I’m seriously thinking about buying a subscription to be able to use this theme, but quick questions: Is it possible to have multiple parallax background images on the homepage? More generally, how configurable is the order/number of sections on the homepage?

    • +1

    • I’d also love to know if it’s possible to have multiple parallax images!

  40. This theme is awesome. I’ve got an art website that i’m planning on launching pretty soon and I’m pretty sure that i’m going to be using this theme. The testimonial section with the pop up faces is sweet! Great work

  41. Love all of your designs and how customizable they are! I’m using them on a bunch of my websites. Keep it up!

  42. This theme is awesome cool!!

  43. A great looking theme. I like it

  44. Could you add a search field to your blog sidebar?

  45. Hi, whats the size of the header image? I’m designing my own but it’s hard to fit it in

  46. Please would you sort out your site… I’ve been trying to submit a ticket, and it keeps taking me to the member login page. I can’t keep logging in every 2 seconds and never get anywhere.

  47. How can I change the color of text that appears at the top of pages?

  48. In my installation the portfolio template doesn’t want to display projects, it only displays posts – should it be like that?? Help much appreciated.

    • If you need help, please open a ticket in our support forums so that our team can assist you.

  49. When I visualize the theme from my ipad, the header image looks very blurry and oversized. That does not happen to me with other devices, like nexus 7 tablet or galaxy s3
    How can i fix that?

  50. Love the theme. Two questions though.
    1. Is there a way to put the team members in a custom order rather than by date posted?

    2. I do not want a call to action button at the bottom of the page but when I empty that field their is still a red box.

    Thanks for the help!

    -Matt

  51. great theme, nick !

    can I use “call to action” only on the homepage or on other pages too?

    thanks for answering.

  52. Vertex is one of the nicer themes I have used from Elegant Themes. I would recommend it to anyone that wants a solid, stable theme design.

  53. I was planning to stick with a free theme until I saw this one. Stunning and simple!
    I’ve got two questions before I buy: Is it hard to add advertising to the footer and sidebar areas? and, can I add a “related posts” plugin to the end of posts?
    The only reason I’m not keeping the theme I have is to help people find my content quickly and easily.
    Thanks!
