Its unique design stems from the fact that it has distinguishing sections which are blended in parallax mode as you scroll down. Each section has the option of its own background images which help gives it a double added advantage in terms of professionally looking website design.

Altitude Genesis WordPress Theme Review -10 Important Features
- 2# Inbuilt Sections With Parallax Effect
The core hallmark feature of this template is the Parallax effect inbuilt in the sections. From default, it has about six (6) sections which automatically moves to the next section as you scroll down the section ( this is the parallax effect earlier mentioned).
The Parallax feature does not add additional loads, its slick and of course absolutely retina ready.
The beauty and professionalism invested in the design concept make it arguably one of the best and most recommended OnePage WordPress theme.
- 2# Flexible Widget Configuration
As can be seen from the homepage template above, there are six different widgets template layout you can choose from. This makes the customization of the entire homepage design so flexible and adjustable to your desire.
- 3# Complete OnePage Features
When talking about OnePage websites, this template presents the perfect example of what can be obtained if you are looking to have a professional looking one-page website design layout.
From the default settings, the entire page contains full features including the overview, features, pricing, testimonials, Faq, sign up, contact. When you click on any one of them right from the header, the page simply scrolls down till you get to the section you desire.
However, with the customization settings, you can change the entire sections and configure it perfectly.
- 4# Custom settings of background images
For a creative fellow, you can make use of 1600 by 1050 pixel wide pictures to replace the default homepage background pictures.
This is possible by making use of the customize settings. To do this, just go to appearance, then click on customize, move over to the Front Page Background Images and from here, you can play around with your creative abilities.
- 5# SEO Secured, Schema Integrated
Now, this is a bit of some technical language, but I will explain. There is no point having a beautiful website with no visitors ( organic visitors from Google and search engines) checking on it.
One thing with all Genesis themes, of which Altitude is one is that they are all SEO tamper proofed. Genesis themes are the industry standards for anything search engine optimization.
Secondly, all their themes have an excellent schema integration in-built. This makes crawling by search engines easy; basically, a well-defined schema and architecture web page structure is well loved by search engine crawling spiders.
In summary, using this theme will naturally give you a competitive organic ranking and boost on SERP than other templates. Trust me, I know what I am talking about.
- 6# Great loading speed , Retina Ready, and Mobile Responsive
For example, this blog was built using the Modern Pro Genesis theme and using Pingdom tools, my speed is 661ms ( using Dallas as my pick center). This same fast loading speed is typical of all Genesis child themes, including Altitude.
On a second note, a theme is said to be retina ready if you upload an image or video on it and it comes out crystal clear and sharp with no form of pixelating. All these are some of the features present in the retina enabled Altitude WordPress theme.
The year 2015 witnessed a mobile ranking revolution by Google, even up to the extent that the search engine is now penalizing websites/blogs that are not mobile responsive/compliance.
Altitude is a mobile responsive template, and it appears perfectly well whether being viewed on PC, laptop, or on any mobile phones.
