Aroxis is a new Thesis skin from Kolakube, and it’s pretty damn cool.
The main idea of Aroxis is to help serve your content to multiple devices, providing a more elegant experience for users on any device.
Or, in shorter terms, Aroxis has a stunning responsive design. And it’s not like anything you’ve seen in the Thesis community yet.
The best part of this responsive experience isn’t for your readers. It’s for you, the site creator.
Since Aroxis is built on Thesis, you know it sits on some pretty powerful layout options.
You can set your own column widths, create one, two or three column layouts, and even reverse the order of your columns.
A problem with many responsive themes is that they remain static.
As in, you can’t change the widths of columns or set your own custom column order settings. Your stuck with what you get out of the box.
Aroxis solves that problem and integrates perfectly with Thesis’ layout options. And of course, it all remains responsive.
From Flexible Layout to Killer Design Options
Taking a page from Chronicl, Aroxis is a “design first, ask questions later” kind of skin.
Armed with killer design options, you can set your own background color, change textures throughout the skin and even create some beautiful logos:
The logo settings in Aroxis are impressive:
- Broken circle logo format (far left)
- Rectangle box (left)
- Plain text (right)
- Your own custom logo (far right)
…and you can align your logo any way you want. Left, right, center— and the layout adapts.
That’s Just A Glance…
Aroxis is a pretty powerful skin, and has opened the doors for current and future Kolakube skins to become perfectly responsive within Thesis.
