Widgetkit

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.

Slider Chester

Slider Chester

This custom Slider provides a special layout. The active item will always be centered and has plenty of space to its adjacent items, so that they appear cut off by the browser window. This results in an elegant and trendy tripartite setup.
Popover Chester

Popover Chester

The Popover Chester widget comes with a custom toggle icon and alignment options.

Available Alignments
Left Top, Right Top, Left, Right, Left Bottom, Right Bottom
Switcher Chester

Switcher Chester

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.

Additional Settings

Content Width
100%, 90%, 85%, 80%, 75%, 66%
Media Tab, not available when media is aligned left or right
Switcher Chester Nav

Switcher Chester Nav

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.

Additional Settings
