Promote your social profiles, boost your follower count
With original features such as the Social Links drop-down menu, Social links special boxes and Social widgets, SKIN offers new ways of driving traffic to your social profiles.
ALL (and we mean ALL) social icons included
SKIN comes with an integrated set of 45+ SVG social icons covering all major and not-so-major social networks of today. If we don’t have it – we’ll put it in, let us know.
SKIN comes with trendy pre-defined gradients which will make your blog scream “2017”. With a few clicks, you can tweak the colors to make SKIN fit your brand even more.
Besides the new awesome gradients, you can change all colors on SKIN theme. But from a user experience standpoint the most important addition is that you can assign different colors to different post categories which makes your blog be more organised visually.
POP-UP Advertising and Pages (on site load or on click)
Want awesome pop-ups? SKIN covers that too. Choose from several layouts and create pop-up pages to promote products, posts, social links, events OR tell something about yourself in an eye-catchy way.
821 fonts to choose from
Customize your blog’s typography using the amazing copyright-free Google font library and SKIN’s detailed typography customization options.
Great for Affiliate Marketing Blogs
Are you making money with affiliate links? SKIN comes in handy here as you can easily make you posts open in a new tab with our custom URL option for each post.
Fullscreen Fast Search
Skin comes with the new lightning-fast fullscreen search that displays search results as you are typing.
Special Boxes Concept
With our home-brewed Special boxes concept SKIN lets you loose the sidebar but still show the most important widgets (Most Popular & Latest posts, Social Links, Advertising banners and Pop-up pages) throughout your posts. Choose which Special box is shown and how often it’s repeated. This way your audience will be reminded to discover more of your posts and content or connect with you on social networks.
Tweet / Post on Facebook with Text Selection
Make it easy for your visitors to tweet your posts by using our integrated Tweet with selection tool. Simply by selecting any text within a post (just like copying) visitors will be given a pop-up button that let’s them login to Twitter or Facebook and immediately tweet the article with the selected text and a link to your post.
Absolute animated GIF support
We adore animated GIFs and ever since our first theme DAZE we’ve been developing and integrating GIFs into our themes. SKIN now offers with even more in-depth animated GIF options so knock yourself out.
Fullscreen Mobile Menu
SKIN comes with a new fullscreen mobile menu that maximizes user experience and shows all menus, sub-menus, social links and copyright information in a clear way. Try it on your smartphone or tablet.
Gigantic Media Embed Support
SKIN comes with a huge embed support: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Imgur, Youtube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, Mixcloud, TED Talk, Kickstarter, Scribd, Spotify, ReverbNation, Flickr, Hulu, Funny or Die, College Humor and many more.
We have created a detailed documentation so setting up your blog and controlling all aspects of the theme is quick and easy to find.
