Gameday – WordPress Sports Media Theme

Last update: Version 1.01 – January 17, 2013

Gameday is the premier responsive sports news and media theme for WordPress with advanced features including: Custom-built scoreboard integration, a drag-and-drop homepage, a slider on each category page, a fully-responsive layout, a “sticky” menu, five different ad units (including a wallpaper ad), post/page slideshows and so much more!

Key Features

Responsive design – Gameday adjusts its layout based on the device it is being viewed on. This means the theme’s content will be easy to read and easy to navigate whether it is being viewed on a desktop computer, a tablet or a mobile device.

Advanced, Custom-Built Scoreboard (Optional) – Gameday gives you the ability to easily enter and display scores from multiple sports with a custom-built scoreboard!

“Sticky” Navigation Bar – Gameday comes with a “sticky” menu bar that will always stay at the top of your device window as you scroll down the page for quick and easy navigation.

Logo position in Navigation Bar (Optional) – Gameday gives you the option to either display your logo in the traditional area above the content area or you can place your logo in the “sticky” navigation bar!

Slider on category pages – No more boring category pages with a list of the most recent posts. Gameday gives you a slider to display your most recent posts on your category pages!

Post & Page Slideshows – Gameday utilizes Theia Post Slider to give you dynamic slideshows in your posts and pages. Now, you can increase page views and ad impressions while providing excellent, organized content in a fluid slideshow. The slideshow comes with a set of options that includes the ability to reload the page with each slide to increase ad impressions.

5 different ad units – Gameday takes full advantage of available ad space to give you 5 different ad units, including a rare wallpaper ad! The ad units include a 728×90 ad, 222×90 ad, wallpaper ad in addition to unlimited 300×250 and 125×125 ads (displayed in a widget that holds four 125×125 ads).

Drag-and-Drop Homepage – Create unlimited homepage layouts by dragging and dropping our custom widgets into the layout that gives your website the professional look and feel you are truly looking for.

Featured Headline – Most major news and magazine sites use shorter “teaser” headlines in their featured content section on the homepage. Max Mag gives you the same option to spruce up your featured items with a custom “teaser” headline.
