Widgetkit 2 is the next generation toolkit for WordPress and Joomla. It provides a simple and user-friendly way to enrich your website experience with grids, switchers, slideshows and much more.
Chester Theme features Widgetkit 2, our content creator toolkit. In addition to the default widgets we also created four custom plugins which perfectly fit the theme's overall styling: a special Slider, Popover and two Switcher widgets.
The Popover Chester widget comes with a custom toggle icon and alignment options.
The Switcher Chester makes particular use of the thumbnav. You can display the item’s title under its thumbnail. We recommend placing the content and thumbnav side by side and use a second image for the thumbnail as seen on the frontpage.
The second custom Switcher in this theme features a special navigation. You can use an image, like an icon, the item’s title or both to navigate trough your content.
