Smart areas

The Kallyas theme’s “Smart Areas” is nothing but a customizable block that can be used on multiple pages. The customizations you make to the block/feature will be displayed on pages that you can modify or customize.

ZION builder

Hogash Studio had introduced the Zion builder in May 2019. The Kallyas page builder quickly became a key feature. ZION is a drag-and-drop/visual page builder that allows you to create stunning elements for your pages in just three easy steps. You will need to choose the element that you wish to modify and then drag it to the place you want it to appear. Next, edit the element. You’ll be able to see many options in the element editor interface.

. Once you are done customizing/editing the element, click on the Save button. The ZION page builder displays the custom element in real-time. There are three views available: Section, Tree, and WireFrame. The ZION builder, like other page builders has a collection of elements. You’ll find around 149 elements in the ZION library.

WooCommerce and membership

The Kallyas theme’s ZION builder is compatible with WooCommerce. You can easily create a WoCommcer product listing/page from scratch. Membership is an important feature for eCommerce websites. Kallyas allows you to create a form for users to fill out and submit in order to be a member on your site.

Smart Loader

The problem with most of the WordPress theme is unused resources. Multi-purpose themes can be used on many sites and offer tons of features. One person’s needs may be different than another. You might not be able to use all features of the website. Some themes include code or embed files that contain the code for features you don’t need in pages. This can increase the page’s size. A heavy page may load slower than one that is lighter. The Kallyas theme’s Smart Loader feature ensures that pages are only loaded with the code required.
