Beautiful publishing and eCommerce with Lenscap

Howdy folks! Today we’re thrilled to announce our latest and greatest WordPress theme, Lenscap. Lenscap follows in the footsteps of our popular Paperback and Baseline magazine themes, with some additional features that you can’t find in any other WordPress theme.

Lenscap makes it super easy to create a stunning WordPress-powered magazine and online store with slick content discovery features, gallery and video post styles, smart customization options and WooCommerce support. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the features that make Lenscap shine.

Immersive lightbox for videos and galleries.

Take your content to the next level and turn your site into a multimedia magazine with beautiful photo and video post styles. Lenscap makes it super easy to build media-rich posts to create a more interactive browsing experience.

Using the included post styles, you can create quick-view lightboxes for video and galleries on the post index page, while featuring video and galleries at the top of the single post page. Lenscap puts your multimedia front and center!

Content discovery features built-in

Lenscap helps you showcase your best content to your visitors with a stunning, full-width Featured Content Carousel. Highlight your four latest featured posts in an elegant, responsive carousel at the top of your homepage. Simply add a tag to your posts and it will be included in the carousel automatically.

Using the Footer Category Menu, you can add a slick, AJAX-powered category menu to the footer of your homepage. The Footer Category Menu lets visitors quickly browse the five latest posts from each category in your menu. By loading content via AJAX, you can show your visitors more content instantly, without them having to leave the page. Take the Footer Category Menu for a spin on the Lenscap demo.

Integrates seamlessly with WooCommerce

When we took the Array Redesign Survey earlier this year, one of the biggest feature requests was support for WooCommerce, extendable eCommerce plugin that helps you sell anything on your website. We heard you loud and clear and Lenscap was the perfect opportunity to start adding WooCommerce support.

Lenscap works seamlessly with WooCommerce. Setting up your shop is as easy as activating WooCommerce and going through the quick setup. Once you’ve done that, you can start adding products and selling them to your customers, it’s as simple as that. We’ve applied the same attention to detail and ease of use to our WooCommerce integration.

Give Lenscap a spin

Lenscap is our best theme to date (don’t tell the other themes)! The browsing experience, ease of content creation and multimedia support is second to none. So with that, we invite you to check out Lenscap and let us know what you think!

  1. Great, as always, Mike! Makes me want to start a magazine site, and sell something! Did this theme take more time to develop than Checkout? How is your overall feeling about creating themes with WooCommerce support compared to EDD?

    • Sorry I missed your comment, Dmitry! Hope you are doing well!

      Checkout definitely too more time to develop than Lenscap. This was because I tried to integrate very closely with EDD, covering much of the functionality you’d encounter with your digital good store. Lenscap, on the other hand, had a more generic approach to customizing WooCommerce. I was able to do some neat custom styles without touching the template files or requiring too much tweaking.

      Overall, I was very impressed with WooCommerce. It’s definitely grown to be a very robust plugin over the years. I will likely do another WooCommerce theme before EDD, since there is more reach with WooCommerce.

      Have you built anything with WooCommerce? What is your take on it? Hope we get to meet up again in the US soon (unless I make it to Russia first)!

  2. An awesome theme.

    But I wish, the Featured Content Carousel could be fixed or boxed (as an option), because the time for full width images and sliders is over (for me).

  3. Yeah, thats what I mean. It looks clean and tidier now on a 27″ screen. I think this will be a nice additional option for everyone.

  4. Hi Mike!

    All your magazine themes looks awesome. And your files are well structured! If I plan to shift my blog over to one of these themes, should I go for
    1) LensCap
    2) Baseline, or..
    3) Paperback?

    Which would be the greatest magazine theme for you? Or the most lightweight?

    • Hi Leo,

      Thanks for the kind words! Personally, I like Lenscap the best! I think it’s the most versatile and more of a traditional magazine style theme. It has solid support for video and galleries, often found in online magazines. Hope that helps!
