Theme Description


The Cotton is a Powerful Premium WordPress Theme designed in a minimalistic style. This theme provides all the main functionality you will need to present your products, work and yourself in an elegant and professional style. The Cotton theme is highly flexible, so customizing the theme or simply changing the color scheme is super simple and for the most parts you won’t need an image editor. The theme is best suited for any business, portfolio, photography and personal sites.


For easier customization, the theme provides three base skins – light, dark and grunge. After selecting the base skin, you can build your custom skin using the other options the Pexeto panel provides – you can change all the main styles within the theme from the admin panel. Additionally, there are 40 custom patterns that you can choose between for the body. You can check out some of the settings available in the admin panel here

Note: Please note that the style switcher added on the demo shows only a small part of the customization options available in the theme.


The Cotton theme has very powerful admin settings included, so that it can satisfy all different needs without having to change any code. You can very easily change between page layouts, theme styles, sliders and set the theme content. You can have a look at the Admin Settings section on the demo, where some of the admin settings are displayed as screenshots.


The theme comes with 3 different image sliders – each of them can be used multiple times on different pages with different image sets:

-Nivo Slider
-Accordion Slider
-Thumbnail Slider

The images are easily added or removed, or the main slider settings changed within the Advanced Slider Management section.


The Cotton has 3 impressive portfolio galleries – portfolio showcase which is great for presenting projects with more details; main gallery with pagination, category filter and lightbox preview and a gallery with item descriptions. All the galleries have been created with a great functionality, so that the content is very easy to change and maintain. You also have the option to choose between 2, 3 and 4 column layouts.


Apart the default fonts that you can set, the theme provides a friendly user interface to implement Cufon Font replacement and Google API Fonts. For the Cufon font replacement you can either use one of the fonts that the theme comes with or upload your own custom font. For the Google Fonts we have created a section where you can enable as many fonts as you like just by adding the URL the API provides. You can check out the font management section here


The theme comes with a detailed documentation, which includes examples, screenshots and all the main instructions you will need to customize your site.
