“Nomad, vagabond, call me what you will… Yeah”
— James Hetfield, Metallica
If you’re among those whose heart is always yearning to discover new places, experience new things, and meet new people, then Vagabonds, our new travel blog WordPress theme, has been made for you.
With its design focused on imagery and minimalist typography, the theme is a great choice for displaying photos from your trips. Share stories, inspire your audience and encourage them to visit places they’ve never been before. Vagabonds is optimized for mobile devices and includes integration with popular social media channels, such as Instagram.
Moreover, Vagabonds lets you receive donations directly from your audience. Using the Give donations plugin included with the theme, you can easily set up a donation form and display it via a shortcode in any part of your website. Vagabonds includes a lot of other major features, so let’s explore them in more detail.
Among the features that should be mentioned first is the Slider Revolution plugin. It is bundled with the theme and provides you with a flexible interface for creating slides and hero areas for your website. With its help, you can give your website a unique notch, spice it up with fun effects and animations.
Slider Revolution is a popular plugin among WordPress users and has a well-written documentation that helps you navigate through all the intricacies of the plugin settings easily.
Donations are important for any portal that is funded by your audience, be it fans, viewers, or subscribers. Thanks to integration with the Give donation plugin, you can display donation form in any part of your website via a shortcode. Your visitors can choose from predefined donation sums or specify any custom donation number.
WPBakery Page Builder
Page builders play a huge role in website creation, and no wonder, since websites are much more than a stream of blog posts nowadays. In order to display your content beautifully, you need the corresponding mechanisms for doing this, and that’s where page builders come in handy.
Vagabonds is bundled with Visual Composer (now renamed to WPBakery), one of the leading page builders for WordPress. The builder enriches the theme with a collection of helpful components that can be used for different purposes. Moreover, we’ve enhanced it with our own custom set of elements to give your even more layout variations. WPBakery includes both frontend and backend editing modes which is great for beginner and experienced users.
Header & Footer Builder
When customizing your website with page builders, you might often find that such important areas of your website as header and footer can’t be tailored the same way. That’s not the case with Vagabonds, however. The theme features Header & Footer Builder, a custom mechanism of building and adjusting your header and footer layouts using the page builder’s interface. Create and customize unlimited header & footer layouts, giving your website desired look and feel.
Image Gallery & Instagram Feed
Images are crucial for travel websites since they are, alongside with videos, the main way of sharing your experiences with visitors. The theme supports several ways of displaying images, one of which is showcasing them using the Essential Grid plugin. The plugin enables you to display versatile image grid layouts, including classic grid, cobbles, and masonry.
Of course, when it comes to images, you can hardly get by without Instagram. That’s why Vagabonds supports Instagram widget, which lets you display your latest Instagram posts on your website as well.
Blog Styles & Layouts
Vagabonds is a great foundation for a digital nomad blog. Packed with a variety of blog layouts, you can tailor your blog page to your preference without any coding skills. Choose the style of blog posts, position of sidebar, pagination style, enable or disable certain meta elements, and more. All the changes are made in the WordPress Customizer interface, so that you can preview your adjustments in real time.
Another major integration that features Vagabonds is WooCommerce. With WooCommerce, you can create a real online store for free. The plugin provides you with a strong foundation for digital commerce, so that you can start selling products online with ease.
WooCommerce provides you with several types of products, including standard, variable, grouped, and affiliate. You can manage product stock, add product discounts, and even generate coupon codes. The theme makes sure that all the elements of WooCommerce are displayed nicely across devices, and look consistent with the theme design.
