Top Features List : Origin Elegant Themes
Left Header Panel : You might have seen header area on the top of area with most of the websites. But this theme will break that tradition by providing a left navigation panel which shows all header elements on the left side of the screen. You might have noticed that header elements are only visible when user is located on the top area. Only fixed header keeps top header visible during the page scroll event.
But Origin WordPress theme includes a vertical header layout that shows logo image, navigation links, and custom widgets on single region. So user can easily find menu links, and access widgets list. This layout only works for desktop devices having large screen. The left header automatically shifts to the top of the screen as you load it from mobiles or other devices having small screen.
