icon for Grafite

Grafite has an overall dark look. It's suitable for many purposes but it's a pity not to use it for photo galleries: in fact photos look gorgeous! Photo pages have a minimalistic but elegant design: the header is hidden and the site menu is reduced to be unobtrusive. Pictures keep your visitor's focus, nothing else.

The sidebar sports a modern, light grey design with a delicate 3D effect. The white, main text is slightly larger than usual, to improve readability on dark background.

Supported features specific to Sandvox 2:

  • Hiearchical (pop-up) menu navigation
  • Block quotes

New in this update: Retina-ready, support for the blockquote object, larger images and "ready-made" code injection options
