Frontpage Elements and Pagination :
Homepage Slider Options : The homepage would looking little boring with just latest post entries. Therefore, you will have optional slider available for top homepage that would be available in different style. You can use carousel type post slider that shows navigation arrows and many posts at once. Or, you can also select standard slideshow style that shows single post in big size. The slider highlights posts from any category that is assigned in slider settings.
The slider layout, transition style, timing and everything is managed from settings panel under slider tab.
Homepage Layout : Zimple homepage is designated to promote latest post entries so that visitors would easily have glimpse on newly released articles. You can choose excerpt style like demo that uses featured images and title with Read more button. Bloggers can use Full or Excerpt post view style, but we suggest excerpt mode to display multiple entries on single page.
Paginations : Whether it is homepage, or archive section, you will always need pagination options button to brose more post entries. The demo here shows pagination buttons in numbered style, but you can also use next/previous or ajax buttons. The ajax mode will load content automatically with scrolling or with click of “Load more” button in seamless style, without refreshing whole page.
What’s Cool About Zimple WordPress Theme ?
Ad Management : We loved the in built ad management options which covers most important part for advertisement promotion. The ad slots are visible for single post and you can display Ads at the beginning of the post or after first paragraph. If you want to display more banners inside articles then you will get ad location in middle and bottom of the articles.
Other possible ad locations could be footer and sidebar as they both can display banners using custom widgets. Thanks to ThemeCountry for offering many custom widgets to promote banners, posts, categories and other stuff. The footer and sidebar both will work nicely to promote social media links, latest posts, tags, categories, author profile and other contents.

You can test the responsiveness in any devices or just resize browse to see how it responds to every size. If you browse it from mobiles then menu links, images, grid and everything will shrink down to fit on your screen instantly. The real beauty of responsive design is adaptive layout that adjust to any screen type.
