Story – Creative Portfolio WordPress Theme
Story is a responsive creative WordPress theme. It comes with some awesome features, such as fullscreen slider, custom headers and custom background sections and it is the perfect canvas for your creative ideas. With the combination of responsive design and parallax animations, this theme will provide an optimal viewing experience and will make your website look great on across wide range of devices and screen sizes.
Story comes with an extensive admin panel, packed with various options. You can easily modify stylings, colors, fonts, layouts and other aspects of the theme.
The theme features a fullscreen slider which is great for presenting any type of content. The slider comes with three main layout types:
- Short text with a background image and solid color including various options for text location.

- Horizontal image slider
You can set the layout type per slide and mix all the different layouts into one slider.
Advanced AJAX Gallery
Story includes a flexible AJAX portfolio gallery with awesome jQuery animations and effects, which comes with lots of options available for its items. The gallery also provides an AJAX pagination and category filter for a better items organisation.
Custom Header Backgrounds
Story supports different background settings for the different pages. For each page header you can:
- Select a custom background image
- Set a custom background color
- Set the background image opacity
- Choose between a standard and large header
Responsive Design and Retina Display Optimization
The theme is responsive, so that it fits and looks great on different size of devices – desktop, mobile phones and tablets. Also, the main gallery slider supports finger gestures, so it is very easy to navigate between the images on touch devices. Story has Retina display optimizations for all the main graphics used in the theme, so they look sharp on retina displays.
The theme includes options to change all the main colors used, such as header, main content, sidebar and footer background and text colors, so you can easily build your custom skin with your favorite colors. All the color settings are included in the theme customizer section, so that you can live preview the color changing.
Advanced Content Editor Buttons
The WordPress theme has an unique set of buttons that allows you to directly insert the various elements into your editor area. In this way you can easily build full-width background sections with custom elements and style settings.

The theme implements parallax effects in different elements and sections, such as:
- Content slider background image
- Full-width sections background images
- Servcies boxes animations
The parallax functionality can be enabled/disabled for each individual section/item.
The theme provides a friendly user interface to implement the default web-safe fonts and Google API Fonts. We have created a section where you can enable as many fonts as you like just by adding the URL the Google API provides.
