If you choose to do so, you can have a One-page only design, or you can ignore the one-page design completely and just use the awesome metro style portfolio and blog posts. Or you can use both (as we are in the demos). It’s quite flexible. We’ll take care of you. Support is a must have option right? We agree and you’ll find that on Our Dedicated Support system. Video Tutorials: We think that videos are an awesome way to learn stuff, that’s why we’re working on our video library to make it even easier for you to set up and customize our themes. Bells and Whistles, Horizontal Scroll, Acid shine with its horizontal scroll and that’s why we took special care to make sure it is smooth and easy to use.

Check out this video tutorial and see for yourself how easy it is. Unlimited Color Options! Use a simple color picker (built right in) to customize header, font, footer, border colors. But don’t worry; we’re not going to make you design your own site from ground zero. You’ll pick a few colors, and we’ll repeat them all over the place for you. You can see the color options by clicking on “Screenshots” right next to the “Live Preview.” Even More Colors! Unlimited Colors isn’t enough? That’s what we thought. You can also assign a specific color to each of your posts and portfolio entries to enhance the browsing experience and convey a specific mood to your users just by few simple clicks.
Acid is built for users! You shouldn’t be relearning how to use WordPress admin panel each time you buy a theme. That’s why we’ve simplified it down to just a few controls that rely on native WordPress functions and User Interface. Remember we said Acid is something you’ve never seen before?
Well the Admin panel is everything you’ve seen before and that’s a good thing, right?
