Story includes a flexible AJAX portfolio gallery with awesome jQuery animations and effects, which comes with lots of options available for its items.

The gallery also provides an AJAX pagination and category filter for a better items organisation.

For each gallery item you have the option to select one of the following click actions:

  • Dynamically open an image slider (full-width or two-column layout) with a nice jQuery animation, containing additional images attached to the item (bulk upload – you can upload lots of images with a single click).
  • Open an image lightbox as image gallery attached to the item (images can be uploaded in bulk)
  • Play video – full-width or two-column layout
  • Open the item content in a new page
  • Open a custom link in a new page

Also there are lots of options the gallery provides, some of them are:

  • Masonry Layout Support
  • Option to choose between two, three and four column layout
  • Unlimited gallery pages – you can create as many galleries as you need with different image sets
  • Partial Loading in slider – loads images in background on portions for faster performance. Works well with large amount of images attached to a single item.
  • Social Sharing – the slider view of the gallery provide sharing options, so you can easily share your items images on the most popular social networks – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
  • Dynamic AJAX category filter (can be enabled/disabled per page)
  • AJAX pagination which is great for large number of items
  • Options to link to a specific page/category of the gallery

full-width background sections with custom elements and style settings. Some of the elements that you can easily add with the advanced editor are:

Please note that theme supports the WordPress classic editor only and a major part of its elements rely on the classic editor. This requires installing the Classic Editor plugin.

  • Full-width sections background images
  • Servcies boxes animations

The parallax functionality can be enabled/disabled for each individual section/item.

Font Management
