Furthermore it comes with three proprietary handy widgets: AxlTabs, AxlPosts and AxlVideos

With AxlPosts you can add to the sidebar a recent post list, a popular posts parade (related to a category or a specific tag. The AxlVideos is a simple video embed utility).

The most interesting one is AxlTabs that is a dynamic widget generator of tabs that list popular posts, category posts or comments.

The theme comes with a rich options panel to configure the site sections below:

  • General
  • Blog
  • Header

The layout and customization process comes very easy and intuitive, from the post editing screen, below the WYSIWYG content editor.
