Best Features of SWIFT

Swift Theme developers have poured in a lots of features in it to make it the most suitable theme for a blogger,still keeping its footprint small. Here is a list of its best features available :

  • Very light weight and Loads very fast : Swift usesuses CSS sprites. Using CSS Sprites the developers were able to reduce the page size by 35KB and the number of http requests by 13. Since swift theme doesn't use any images it remains light on your blog.

  • SEO optimized : Swift is one of the most SEO optimized theme. Adsense integrated into killer locations to get you best revenues from your blog, and you don't need to install any new plugin for adsense.
  • Great support for social-networking: The theme offers beautiful, artistic icons for various social-networking and bookmarking sites like Facebook, Digg, Twitter, Reddit, Stumble and RSS,making your job really easy.
  • Popular posts highlighted. Featured posts are highlighted in your homepage to attract more visitors.
  • Featured post slider.(Included in v3.0)
  • Most Customizable theme : The design option page offers you to completely customize every element of the theme according to your own personal themes . You can add custom Headers, Footers, choose between magazine or blog layout, add Google ads, number of columns and right or left. Not satisfied with this, you can even choose the color schemes for various sections of your blog.
  • Multiple Browser compatibility . Its compatible with every browser version.
  • Standard compliant.
  • Better than many premium themes: While it's easy to overlook SWIFT over other themes using Big headers when it comes to usability SWIFT beats them all. SWIFT downloads the first image in your post and saves it to wp-content/swift_uploads folder in case if it’s from other host and use it for generating thumbnails. A feature that’s not present in any premium themes.

The entire theme customization is divided into two parts customization of theme options and other customization of design. And the best part remains all this without any need to tweak the theme files, thanks to excellent back-end support of the theme.

  • No need of separate plugin to publish Author Biography, if you have enabled the option it would automatically appear over there in a elegant black background.

@carcinomatype.com hey i i suppose your comments were a bit premature cause swift is indeed the fastest and * one of the most customizable WP themes * so even though Nichewp might load a few micro seconds earlier its the swift that will give you far more flexibility to design our blog to suite your need. i suggest you must try it once and then return to this hub again with your judgment.
