As with every photography theme, a dedicated gallery page is a must, that’s why they pushed it really hard and designed one matching the square and flat style of the website itself.
The gallery page is sortable and can be displayed in 3 different modes: Masonry, Mosaic and Grid.
Another interesting element of this theme is the “Team” section, which unveils the people behind your website or project in a very creative way. It is a very good alternative to the boring “About us” page, which many of the existing themes have.
This feature is useful especially for non-conformists, designers and photographers, who want to stand out of the crowd and have an individual identity.
Shape theme also has a modern designed blog section, which will make your blog take the full benefits of its images and photos, giving therefore a unique usability to your readers with instant access to all the necessary click to actions.
The blog has a built in “Category” panel and a collapsible “Archive” panel, which is especially useful if you post many articles on your blog. The blog also features a “Tags” panel and a “Recent/Popular posts” panel, which according to the latest researches, improves conversion and reduces the bounce rate of a blog.
A calendar and a subscribe box are also incorporated by default in the blog section of this theme. The calendar can also be displayed in full width, in a dedicated page, like it is shown in the screenshot below.
Another key element of Tesla Theme, including Shape, is the contact page, which, in their case, features an optimized php/ajax contact form and has a nice looking Google map with moving elements in it, allowing visitors to get a better understanding where your company is located.
A Google map with your company’s office on it has also shown to increase trust and to make your company look more professional so this is definitely a key feature of Shape’s contact page.
