HTML5-compliant, mobile responsive design that’s a fresh mix of simple and stunning.
Like the Parallax Pro theme, Centric Pro features widgetized “stripes” on the home page. Centric Pro includes 6 stripes, 1 more than Parallax Pro. Centric Pro cleverly uses CSS (specifically, the nth-child pseudo selector) to set alternating background colors on featured page widgets used on the home page. Whereas Parallax Pro used images for a similar effect, Centric Pro uses colors controlled via CSS, so it’s quicker and has a snappier feel.
The theme includes a few other adjustments, such as:
- reducing the size of the header when you scroll down even just a little; and
- making the Archive Intro Text more prominent.
Introduced on 2/25/14, Centric Pro is a 2 column theme with 3 layout options. Three of the 6 standard Genesis layout options have been removed to simplify content creation. The theme includes a landing page template. Beyond the WordPress standards of custom menus and threaded comments, the Centric Pro theme also supports custom headers, custom backgrounds, a mobile specific menu, multiple color styles (charcoal, orange, purple, red, yellow, and blue – the default), and Google web fonts (specifically Lato and Spinnaker).
The selected fonts add about 108 Kb to the page weight of the site, which is a significant addition for typography. Centric Pro also loads some non-Google fonts, such as dashicons, which brings the total addition to about 133 Kb on our demo. However, while that’s a big addition for typography when viewed on its own, it’s not significant when taking the entire page weight of the site into account. Since Centric Pro makes use of background colors in CSS instead of heavier background images, it’s emphasizing typography but remains a lean, fast theme.
