ANIMACE

ANIMACE is a template made with Bootstrap and ACF designed to publish news, reviews and catalog anime series and movies, or series and movies from the cinematographic world and popular streaming services.

Reinventing Anime Sites

As part of the natural evolution of our themes, now we bring a new option to enter the world of anime mixing the best of two of our previous products: INGMAR and ANIMAG. The result is ANIMACE, a template made with Bootstrap and ACF designed to publish news, reviews and catalog anime series and movies (although it is also possible to do it with series and movies from the cinematographic world, or popular streaming services).

With ANIMACE (the ending with the word “ACE” is a reference to Japanese manga and anime magazines) you get a complete and easy-to-use theme, which includes custom fields to fill in information, scores for users and editors, color selectors, predesigned prebuilt modules, AJAX live search and a dark mode ideal for mobile devices. Being created with Bootstrap, it is fully responsive and maintains the “App” aesthetic. It is also compatible with Elementor and WPML, and includes a Child Theme for advanced users, willing to elevate their imagination with more functionalities.

With the Manga Post Type, you can use the WP content editor with Fields to expand the database to manga archives with his own data like author, year, publisher, dates and chapters. Chapters are Child Posts of a Manga Parent Post. When you choose a Parent on the Page Attributes, the editor boxes changes to the uploader of chapters. Use the Content Editor space to add the images of the mangas (recommended in vertical format, one below other, or only one with long height). You can add the zip file of chapter with the WP uploader (not to be confused with an automated zip extractor) or pasting an external url (both generate a download link for the visitor) and a text resume.

For Updating

READ CAREFULLY: as all the WP projects, is highly recommended you have a stage site and a production site. First update the theme in your stage site and check everything goes fine. Then repeat it on the production site. If you have previously done personal changes such as new ACF fields or customizations, contact us before do any update of theme, because ACF is the core of template.

The (re)evolution for Anime Templates:

zettai

ZETTAI is a unique template of its kind, designed to propose a renewal (and why not, a revolution) in terms of web design for anime sites. It is the natural evolution of ANIMAG, our previous theme for anime news sites. With a minimalist “App Style” aesthetic and characteristic rounded edges on our products, ZETTAI is designed to create your own anime news site and database, similar to the most popular anime sites.
