Storefront Xyloto was designed from the ground up to be one of the most incredibly dynamic WordPress ecommerce themes available. While it has been engineered with some special music features, this theme would be well suited for any type of product. The layout is completely responsive to work with mobile devices and also completely fluid to look great on large screens.
The functionality of the theme is based around using ajax to load the content. What this means is that your pages don’t refresh…when you click to view a different page, the existing content disappears and a loading bar appears in the main content window while the theme fetches the new content (see the demo). Then the new content gracefully fades into view.
One of the big advantages this type of action gives us is the ability to build in a music player which can play tracks while you continue to browse the site. Music files can be uploaded for each product using the built-in drag and drop media interface that was introduced in WordPress 3.3. You can even upload images and audio files at the same time…the theme automatically recognizes your images and mp3 files and puts them into the right place on the product page!
The design itself is very customizable with the theme options panel giving you the ability to change colors, background textures and fonts for every area of the site. We’ve also included a special dark music theme called “Coldplay” since the theme was inspired by our favorite band.
This theme was designed as part of a promotion that we did when we created 2 brand new themes celebrating Coldplay’s new album “Mylo Xyloto”. We created this theme along with it’s brother Storefront Mylo using the new album as inspiration.
