The very conservative design of Somaxiom makes it an ideal template for those who need a platform that allows them to customize a great deal. This template has a lot of its functionality dedicated toward accommodating third-party extensions, as well, giving it even more usefulness as a design tool. The template is designed to be easy to use but, with its Gantry framework based design, it doesn’t sacrifice power to accommodate that convenience.
The Somaxiom template has 8 preset styles that can be applied without having to make changes to the template’s CSS. The Gantry framework allows you to work behind the scenes; you won’t have to make changes to the code to make changes to most of the aspects of the site and, thus, don’t have to worry about changing the code in a way that renders it invalid. The template will display correctly in any of the modern browsers on the market and will accommodate IE6 with limited functionality, as well. The template is also provided with a native iPhone version that allows you to make a mobile version of your site available without having to author additional code.
The Somaxiom template is styled so that 3rd party extensions are easily accommodated. They include JComments, K2, JomSocial and more. They don’t come with the download, however, but are easily obtained from other sources. The template also includes support for Google Web Fonts and Smart Loading, so you have a great many tools to work with when putting this site together.
Somaxiom also offers extensive control over typography, so you can make sure that your template is readable to all the visitors who come to your site or, if you want to go for a younger crowd, you can use more ornate and edgy fonts to give your site a modern look that will catch their eyes.
This theme is suitable for professional designers because of the fact that it is minimalistic and conservative, allowing for a great deal of flexibility in designing the actual site based upon it. It also includes support for enough 3rd party extensions to ensure that it can be adapted to the needs of any client. The theme is a great choice for those who need something powerful and flexible and, with the Gantry framework as a basis, it can easily be expanded into even more forms to ensure that the broadest selection of users will find it suitable.
