In this edition of the oxwall themes review, we shall deliberate on “the best free oxwall theme” that has proven to be the basic of every modern themes out there at the oxwall.org themes repository.

With the rapid development of oxwall designs, have you ever imagined the look of oxwall in the future? If you have, well, tell us about your imagination in the comment section but if you haven’t, this awesome theme will pose a clearer picture of  what the next generation of oxwall themes will look like.

In the first edition of our oxwall themes review, I recommended the Facebook theme for those who want to be like facebook, how about those who love to stick with oxwall?

The  Revolution Oxwall Theme provides the best answer to that question, Why? Over the last few months the number of users using the oxwall revolution theme has increase 2x more than it used to, reasons will be discussed latter, but lets take a look at the details of this fantastic theme.

 

Theme title Revolution
Item published OW Visuals
Price Free
License OSCL
Description Revolution Theme, Version Compatibility – 1.5.1 light, no-sidebar, clean, unique layout

Reason behind the rapid growth of revolution users

The fundamental reason behind the rapid increase in users of the revolution oxwall theme is due to the fact that the developers gave it for free. In a second thought, Is the Revolution oxwall theme the only free theme in the store?

Different between the Revolution Oxwall Theme and other Free Themes

The oxwall store can boast of housing over 30 free themes, find out what makes this one stand out among the rest:

  1. Fixed header: 98% of the free themes in the store was developed from the default “origin” theme, that is to say that, they are likely to have the same concept (same layout structure) but the revolution stands out with a unique fixed header & console bar (i.e the console bar and header remains at the top irrespective of your scroll direction).
  2. Fixed vertical menu: This theme ensures that your users find navigation easier by providing a left vertical main menu navigation bar that is fixed to it’s position occupying 80% of your screen height.
  3. Customizable Layout: Don’t like the layout color? No worries, you can change the entire layout color straight from your admin panel.

  1. Wonderful Oxwall theme review, the fact that the number of the theme user increases over the time means there is more to learn about it, and this makes it more encourage for everybody to give it a trial. Nice review

    • Hey Nick,
      Is nice of you checking back and dropping a comment. I’m thrilled that you like my article on revolution oxwall theme review.
      I would want to know if you make use of the oxwall software?

  2. I am new to this concept and I read this word-for-word. I don’t know what an Oxwell Theme is, but from the description above it looks like it is new and different and growing by leaps and bounds. Is it a new page on facebook? Is it a new blog hoster? Where would one use it? Please forgive my ignorance, but the only way to learn is to ask questions. Thanks.

    • Hi Tina,
      I appreciate your effort in checking by and dropping a comment.
      Oxwall is an open source community software that allows you to create a membership site (e.g: social network). Members can create forum topics, blog post, events and other social networking activities.
      Yes! Indeed it is very new and growing rapidly too. Is a good thing you asked and I’m ever-ready to clear you of any ambiguity.

      Thanks once more for your comment, hope to see you again!

    • Ashish are you trying to reduce the width of the sidebar or the entire site width?

      To change the width of the site canvas edit this section:

      .ow_canvas{
      margin: 0 auto;
      width: 94%;
      background-color:#F7F7F7;
      border-right: 1px solid #BDBDBD;
      padding-left: 20px;
      padding-right: 30px;
      }

      Let us know if you need more help.
