Taking a Closer Look at Uncode, a Top-Selling Creative Multiuse Theme
Uncode is a new WordPress theme that has quickly become a ThemeForest Top Seller. At first glance, Uncode may not appear to be much different than most themes. If you look closely however, you will see how it significantly differs from the rest of the pack.
Many WordPress themes advertise their many core features or the large number of modules that can be brought into play when building a website. Uncode combines and builds on these modular features; the net result is a highly flexible theme to work with, less modular clutter and more options for each module.
A Sampling of Uncode Layouts
Advanced Grid System, Hierarchical Theme Options, Adaptive Images & More
Uncode does things differently. Examine the various features closely, and you will discover a common thread – a large number of available options coupled with innovative functionality.
- The grid system is far more advanced than in most WordPress themes. The many grid options enable you to create any layout you want, with precise positioning, spacing, gap settings, equal or unequal heights – and more.
- Uncode’s engine consists of 28 modules, as opposed to 200 or more found in most WordPress themes. Each module offers a variety of website-building options. Some feature over 100 options. The result is a degree of design flexibility other themes cannot match.
- The options are hierarchically arranged, giving you complete control over your layouts, your content, and the design elements you are incorporating.
- Masonry/Isotope and Carousel’s more than 70 options allow you to create amazing, highly-customized blog posts, portfolios, and shop pages, as well as regular website pages. Incorporating imagery, video, audio, and animations into a layout is easy. Other options deal with parallax, hover, and typographic elements.
- Uncode makes it easy to upload and incorporate media types, including Flickr, YouTube, and Instagram.
- The Basic Header feature is loaded with options as well. A solution exists for virtually any header requirement. Layer Slider and Revolution Slider plugins are included, although you will seldom find it necessary to use either of them. Other header options address font control, parallax, and design element alignment.
- Uncode’s demos are accessed with a single click. The difference is that with this theme you do not have to manage a series of standalone demos. You import one at a time and select only the elements you plan to work with.
- Uncode’s Adaptive Images feature automatically detects screen size and produces re-scaled web page versions of, but it also allows you to customize re-scaling in any way you want.
When you build a website using Uncode, you don’t have to concern yourself with which module you need to work with to perform a task. It’s more like operating a black box. The options are there for you to use, but you don’t have to worry about what is happening inside.
Flexibility, innovation, attention to details
It’s the innovative approach the authors have taken in paying strict attention to detail, and working with advanced technologies to create elegant solutions that makes the difference.
- “Pixel perfect” is often used as catch phrase. A close inspection of Uncode’s layouts however shows how clean they are. It also shows how they will fit any screen, and the great attention to detail that has gone into creating them.
- Uncode’s use of a multiplicity of design options rather than relying on a large number of different modules makes it one of the more flexible, if not the most flexible theme on the market.
- You can select all of the demos you want without losing control of your website-building approach, since you can select only the elements in a given layout you intend to work with.
- Another difference is the way in which Visual Composer is used. Rather than relying entirely on VC’s front end, this page builder is used more as a background engine. Rebuilt page-building functionality has been added, giving the user significantly greater flexibility.
The Team Behind Uncode
Somewhat surprisingly, the Uncode team is a team of two, who collaborated for 18 months to bring Uncode on the market, while working from separate locations. One is located in Italy, and the other works out of Sweden.
Together they form an impressive Elite ThemeForest Author team. Their strength lies not in numbers, but in their flair for innovation and their high degree of technical competency. They keep up to date on the latest web design and development technologies, and their focus on attention to detail and technical consistency is apparent in the product they have developed.
The two-person Uncode development team could be seen by some as being a weakness, yet the product they have delivered is nearly perfect, and the level of customer support they provide is excellent.
Encode does have a learning curve, which is not surprising given the many options available to the user, but beginners will quickly become familiar with its many features and capabilities. It is recommended for beginners and advanced users alike.
