Indigo Blogging Theme Review :
Homepage Layout : The elegant crisp layout and bold font styles makes this a right solution for content focused blogs. The homepage provides multiple layouts to highlight slider, 3 widget ares, recent posts and featured categories. These elements are optional so you can enable them as per your blogging needs.
The homepage shows recent posts for blog style layout or magazine style homepage. The “Featured Categories” widget can insert any category to present recently published post on homepage. We suggest using combination of blog and magazine layout as displayed in demo. But, switching from one layout to another takes only a few minutes and no coding work at all.
Carousel Slider : The Indigo homepage demo shows a big featured slider on the top above featured widgets. This slider has configuration options to display custom posts selected by admin user. The slider can display posts from categories, or custom elements like offer banners, and other elements. The slideshow has only purpose to focus on promoting important contents on the top of homepage.
The slider settings can manage contents, slide transition, and everything related to slideshow.
Responsive Layout : Blog visitors can browse articles, category archives, home sections and menus from their devices. The fluid responsive layout can resize slider, featured post sections, and single post contents for any screen type. Visitors can browse from any screen resolution and this WordPress theme will automatically resize content as user’s device need.

Blog Layouts : As we said earlier that Indigo is a modern blogging theme with mixture of magazine style. The blog page can use any layout from 3 options that include : Traditional, List View and Multiple columns (2,3). You can manage featured image size, excerpt and sidebar. The blog can choose full-width or widgetized sidebar from settings page.
The pagination options provide numbered buttons or infinite scroll with jetpack support. The blog listing page looks interesting when it shows featured entries with proper alignment and clear titles.
Single Post : Bloggers can optimize single post by showing big featured images and custom shortcode elements. The jetpack plugin offers support to display Related posts and sharing buttons. The post navigation section shows Next/Previous post with big featured thumbnails. Hence, readers are always left with a choice to browse more contents.
Author highlight box promotes introduction and social links so that readers can follow their favourite writers.
Sticky Sidebar : Most of the blog platforms use widgetized page layout to display banners, categories and other elements on sidebar. But sidebar becomes invisible when user scrolls to the bottom on long pages. WPZOOM have provided sticky sidebar that floats along with page scrolling process. Hence, user never loose the touch with sidebar widgets and can get choice to access custom links highlighted on sidebar.
Other Features – Indigo WordPress Theme :
Header : The header includes a large space to display logo and slogan text so that big magazines can promote their brand with confidence. The menu below header shows main categories, or any other links that is placed by administrators. There is a floating header on the top section suitable to promote extra menu and social links.
The top floating navigation always stay visible for readers while scrolling on the website. This is where bloggers can place important page, and category links for easy access to navigation system.
Unique Widgets : Widgets have been used as on site content promotion tool especially on magazine and blog type websites. WPZOOM provides custom widgets package to place banners, author box, categories, tags, newsletter and social links. One of the best widget is tabbed section that shows multiple widgets under single block.
Tabbed widgets mostly look suitable to display most viewed, or most commented posts. Widget areas like footer and sidebar can help bloggers increase social followers, email subscribers, and page-views.
Customizer : We have always seen WordPress as best CMS especially for novice who don’t know coding. This developer offers all theme options with back-end options panel powered by ZOOM framework. Hence, administrators can manage home, banners, general and other framework related options. But, customizer is still there to display font, color, navigation, home widget, blog and other options.
