Pixova – A Free WordPress Parallax Theme

Pixova is a modern WordPress one page theme with stunning parallax effects. The theme could be used for creating personal, business, corporate, and professional or agency websites. The long list of the features makes sure that you have all the necessary options for creating fully functional websites.

There are two versions of this theme – a free and a premium one. In today’s post, I will take a close look at both versions of this theme.

Theme Design

Being a one-page theme, the front page of Pixova features all the available sections. The theme developers have provided the theme with various opening animations for the sections. By assigning separate loading animations for each section, you can make the visitors more interested in checking out the next section and ultimately reaching the bottom of the website.

The usual navigation menu is located right at the top. While the theme supports multiple navigation menus, the primary menu is located on the top. The menu supports the multi-level drop-down feature. Therefore, you can quickly display all the essential navigation links within the main navigation area. The logo is located on the left side.

Right after the menu, there is a full-screen slider. You are free to use images or videos in the slideshow. It is also possible to display YouTube videos. There are play, pause, stop, volume control and mute options for the videos. For each slide, you can define a custom text along with a CTA button. It is possible to customize the font family, size, color and other styles for both the text and the button.

Next, there is a services section. You can use this section to showcase the products and services you offer. Besides the titles, it is also possible to add short descriptions and separate font icons for each option in this section.

Showcase Your Products

The next section is for displaying your portfolio items. The various items are shown as a small slider. For each item, you can add an image and a title. Hovering over any item will reveal a link to view the full project. And right below the slideshow, there is a dedicated button for viewing the entire portfolio page.

It is most logical to show the client testimonials right after the portfolio section. And the Pixova theme does exactly that thing. What’s more, it displays the client testimonials as an attractive slideshow. You can quickly add the portfolio items and the testimonials from your website’s admin panel.

If you are creating a professional, business, freelancer or any other type of commercial site, you will need a pricing plan section. Fortunately, Pixova comes with a fully functioning pricing plan feature. With the help of this option, you can create up to four pricing options for your potential customers. For each pricing plan, you can provide a title, price, detailed specifications and a button for purchasing the plan.

All modern websites have a dedicated blog. And if you want your website to have a blog, Pixova has got you covered as well. The theme comes with a dedicated blog page template. It is also possible to display the latest blog posts on the front page. You can display a few blog posts and then add a button for viewing the actual blog section.

The two-column Contact section includes the contact details on the left side and the contact form on the right side. The contact form is provided with real-time validation powered by AJAX. The visitors will need to provide a valid name and email address to send any message.

If you are developing a professional website, it is likely that you have a team. In that case, it makes sense to add a section to introduce the team members to the website visitors. The team section of the theme enables you to do that. For each team member, you can add a headshot, designation along with links to various social media profiles of that individual.

And then, there is another section for displaying some additional features like FAQ, tips, guides, or any other useful information. Lastly, the footer section is fully digitized. You can place up to four different widgets in the footer. Along with the default WordPress widgets, the theme package also includes several custom widgets like latest projects, about us, social media links, etc. You will find all the widgets in the Appearance > Widgets page.

Premium Features

Pixova is ideally optimized for providing you with the best SEO outputs. Along with being fully integrated with the Yoast SEO plugin, the theme also comes with several SEO options to complement your SEO efforts. With the help of the plugins and other SEO options, it is super simple to optimize the title, meta keyword, description and other aspects of your posts and pages.

The W3C compliant theme follows all the coding best practices. The theme developers have ensured that the theme code delivers the best performance for your website. The totally secure theme coding will protect your site against the most common security threats. The theme also works perfectly in most modern web browsers.

Pixova-WooCommerce-Feature

Full WooCommerce integration is another excellent feature of Pixova. Along with the core framework, the theme supports all the extensions and third-party plugins too. Therefore, you can easily integrate a fully functioning online shop in your website. It is also possible to set up various payment methods, ordering options, shipping methods, coupons and limited-time offers.

The theme is provided with dedicated templates for the shop and single product pages. Visitors can sort the available products according to the popularity, average rating, newness or price. Alternatively, it is possible to filter the available products by using a particular price range.

Customization Options

Regarding the personalization aspect, you will find all the available customization options in the theme options and the theme customizer sections.

  • Color Schemes: There are several ready-made color schemes available. You can choose any of them for your website. However, it is also possible to customize the colors and create custom color schemes. And like any regular WordPress theme, Pixova allows you to upload custom logo too.
  • Powerful Sliders: The theme package also includes a very powerful slider plugin. With the help of this plugin, you can create stunning slideshows within a few minutes. The slideshows could be displayed on the home page or any other place by using the shortcode.
  • Google Maps Integration: Pixova also comes with full Google Maps integration. Which means you can quickly show the location of your business on a map. It is possible to create a landmark for your location and put a marker in that position.
  • 600 Google Fonts: By default, the theme is provided with an excellent typography design. However, it also comes with full support for all the Google fonts. It’s possible to choose any of the 600+ Google fonts for your website.

Pixova-Custom-Options

  • One-Click Demo Install: If you don’t have the necessary time to create the initial content for your site, you will find the one-click demo installer very useful. With the help of this feature, you can quickly create a complete website within an hour or so.
  • WPML Compatible: And if you are looking for a theme that could be translated into other languages, you have come to the right place. Being fully compatible with WPML, Pixova could be easily translated into other supported languages. Therefore, you can use this theme to create other language websites.

As all the features of this theme are simple and straightforward, you should be able to set up your site on your own. However, if you still need any additional support, the extensive documentation will be helpful for you.

Pricing Options

Pixova Lite is listed as a free version in the WordPress theme directory. However, the free version lacks some useful options like the videos in the slider, no Google Maps integration and lack of support. Therefore, I highly suggest you check out the premium version of the theme priced at mere $59. The advanced features are worth the price.
