At ThemeForest they just released a very impressive blog and multimedia WordPress theme called “ExtraGrid”. It’s priced at $45 (an absolute steal if you ask us) and loaded with features that include:
- Responsive Design – A no-brainer for every premium WordPress theme released these days. You rarely hear the term “mobile version” in web development discussions these days.
- Built-in SEO features – While we always recommend using the Yoast SEO plugin to our clients this comes with a SEO plugin that basically serves the same purpose.
- Distinct Post Formats – Audio, Video, and regular blog post titles helps to handle when different multimedia opportunities come up.
- Lots of Shortcodes – Totally necessary these days. It makes it easy to rapidly customize blog posts and adds easy-to-use functionality to your website.
Another impressive features this theme has is the sortable portfolio used as the top menu navigation. Usually you just see this as a theme option, not posited as the main menu. This theme would be perfect for a blogger who liked to travel and include photography and video within their posts.
