Videology WordPress Theme Complete Features Overview
Home Page and Sliders
The home page has several elements that you can add and remove such as the main slider, news slider, and content overview. The main slider is a content slider that intends to highlight your chosen content. It also has a video player for quick video playback.
The news slider is a drag n’ drop slider which gives you another option to highlight more contents. If you don’t want the main slider, you can use this slider instead by hiding the main slider and positioning the news slider at the top of the content area.
The content overview intends to highlight the general contents of your site. If you have products and services or downloadable contents, this is the best place to put a highlight about it and attract your visitor’s attention.

This theme has 9 built-in custom widgets that allows you to put dynamic content in the sidebars of different pages and the footer. These custom widgets include an “About Us” box, advertisement, post listings with thumbnails, featured videos (list and player), latest tweets, and recent comments (with post thumbnails or avatars).
You may check out this page to get better glimpse and a lot more information about the built-in custom widgets. If you want to see the actual widgets, keep browsing the pages (refer to “Browser Compatibility and Coding Standards” below for the links) in this site as different widget areas will show different widgets, both custom and built-in.
Videology has several shortcodes that allow you to create from relatively simpler text formatting such as columns, pullquotes, and message boxes, to more complex content formattings such as tabbed elements and accordion, portfolio, photos and video galleries. Shortcut buttons are added in the post editor for quicker access and editing.
