Oshine is a top-selling and top-rated WordPress template developed by Brandexponents. It has an excellent rating of 4.85 out of 5 and over 31000 users. Here are the features that make Oshine one of the best alternatives to a multi-purpose template you may know:
Tatsu, the page builder
The Tatsu WP page builder is similar to other page builders available for WP. It supports custom JS/CSS codes and light/dark color themes. It maintains the revision history so that you can easily undo the changes. Tatsu ships with over sixty pre-built sections and supports tree view. The builder enables you to add padding or border to the elements. You can also adjust the spacing between two elements with Tatsu.
Page Builders can be slow. Tatsu loads 2 times faster than other page builder tools available on the web, according to the company that has developed it. It ships with handy keyboard shortcuts that will save some time in building/designing the page. Tatsu supports the following 38 and several other elements:
- Inline text, button, button group.
- Bubble testimonial, spacing, notification.
- Dropcap, lists, title with icon, divider.
- Google Maps, and more.
Several header styles
The Oshine theme supports 20 header styles, mega menus and it offers four menu locations. You can easily enable overlay, 3d, classic, or sliding menu with a few clicks of a button. The menus of the template are fully customizable. You can change its background color, font, etc. You can also make the header sticky or semi-transparent in the Oshine template.
Although the font of the text you put between the paragraph, div, heading, span, and other tags of a WordPress theme will be automatically set by the browser if you don’t use 3rd party fonts, the default font won’t look good. Adding a font manually requires you to edit the CSS and HTML files. Also, finding the right font can be difficult as there are 100s of fonts available on the internet. If you use the Oshine template, you can easily set your favorite Google font after previewing it. By default, the template will insert the link to the Google font on the website’s page. You can configure Oshine to serve the font from your server instead of the Google server.
In addition to async JS, the template also supports lazy loading of images and conditional loading of the cascading stylesheet files. As less CSS code will be inserted in the site’s header/footer, the template will load fast. Lazy loading ensures that the pictures on the pages of a website will load only the part of the page where the image is embedded is in front of the user. Lazy Loading will now be a feature built into the WordPress content management system.
