About the Alpaca – Blog & Magazine WordPress Website

Alpaca – Multi-concept Blog & Magazine WordPress Website

Alpaca is a WordPress website designed for professional blog & magazine websites. Modern and interesting design, easy to use and maintain. It has well-structured layouts, straight lines and right angles and other sleek and bold design elements, which is perfect fit for blog & magazine websites with rational and serious content, realistic style, and full of modern sense.

Alpaca provides rich magazine styles and layouts. The website is compatible with popular plugins such as WooCommerce, MailChimp for WordPress, Contact Form 7, and more. With WordPress customizer, you can easily change colors, fonts, and more website appearance with instant preview.

Why We Made This

We believe in the power of reading. In order to help you record your thoughts, share knowledge and value, and high-quality reading experience, we deliver this answer – the Alpaca website: a functional magazine WordPress website with a modern and unique design.

Serve Your Readers with High-quality Reading Experience

Content is king. But how to make readers have a better reading experience is an important issue that content creators in the Internet age must consider. A good presentation allow reader to devote more attention to the content, and the content is easier to understand and accept.

Turn Off the Lights

Dark mode is a trend in today’s web design, which can help create an immersive reading experience, and reduce eye strain in low-light environments or when reading for a long time.

Alpaca includes the toggle to switch the color mode with one click. Provide your readers with the option to turn the lights on or off so that they can control their experience and cater to those who may have different visual impairments.

The easier on the eyes, the longer your readers will stay on the site.

Estimated Reading Time

Adding the estimated reading time at the beginning of an article significantly improves engagement with your readers.

Many readers are very time-pressed. When readers see a headline that piques their interest, and know in advance that it only takes a couple of minutes for read, they will be more likely to click the link and read it.

Reading Progress Bar

A reading progress bar adds user interface enhancements, which is a great way to encourage readers to scroll through the entire page. It motivates readers to complete the article they are reading.

Display Article Update Date

If you often update old stories to add new information or corrections, if you only display the published date of articles, your readers would miss those updates.

And, Google factors publish date into its ranking algorithm. Of course, the older a post is, the fewer clicks you’ll get. The solution is simple – display last update time.

Readers will trust the updated content more, and the search engines will update the records the next time they crawl your site. This means better rankings, more clicks, and more engagement.

System Font Stack vs Web Fonts

We have carefully selected fonts and font sizes suitable for reading on the screen. Alpaca uses system font stack for content by default. Defaulting to the system font of a particular operating system can boost performance because the browser doesn’t have to download any font files, it’s using one it already had. System font stack is being used widely on modern websites, including Medium and WordPress.

Fast: No network request, do not require any download time, no flash of an incorrect font.
Have lots of styles and broad language covered.
Feel more native when using system font faces.

Would like to use a web font? No problem. Our website includes 900+ Google Fonts. You can simply pick your favourite Google Font from a dropdown list.

Delight Your Readers With Subtle Animations

Subtle animations add personality and empathy into an otherwise dull interface. They make experience fun, delightful and memorable. They can also help you establish contact with readers on a personal and emotional level.

Alpaca allows content to fade in gracefully on load, and also provides a nice transition on hover (and more). These animations are used just right and will not cause distraction or interrupt reading.

25 Pre Designed Demos

Alpaca provides 25 well-designed pre-made demos for different types of modern magazine. You can select a demo and import it to your website with simple click to get started quickly.

Rich Magazine Website Style

Instant Preview

Our website offers loads of options for changing the website appearance, users can further adjust the layout and style according to their needs. The site appearance options are located in the WordPress Customizer, which is the native way for WordPress to change the site appearance. When customizing, the interface is divided into two parts, with the editing area on the left and the preview area on the right. Operations in the editing area will be rendered to the preview area in real time for easy viewing of the final version.

Distraction-free, Clean & Fluid Writing Experience

Alpaca is fully optimised for WordPress core editor Gutenberg. Gutenberg has been continuously updated and improved for several years. It is an editor designed from the perspective of the writer, which is easy to use, with clean and beautiful layout, distraction-free writing experience.

Optimized for Lightweight and Performance

The technologies we use to optimize website performance:

Adaptive Image

Adaptive image detects your visitor’s screen size and automatically delivers device appropriate re-scaled versions of images. This is to avoid using large images on smaller devices, causing slow loading and costing unnecessary bandwidth and money.

Lazy Loading

Lazy loading is a technique that defers loading of off-screen resources at page load time. Instead, these off-screen resources are loaded at the moment of need.

Lazy loading images and videos reduces initial page load time, initial page weight, and system resource usage, all of which have positive impacts on performance.

Progressive Image Loading

You may have seen this loading effect on the popular publishing platform Medium.com, which loads lightweight placeholder images at page load, and replaces them with lazily-loaded images as they are scrolled into the viewport.

Compatible with popular performance plugins

In order to further optimize website performance, you need to use optimization plugins. Our website is compatible with popular WordPress optimization plugins, such as W3 Total Cache, Smush, etc.

Optimized for SEO

The website is coded by following the best practices of web technology. We strictly follow WordPress Coding Standards to ensure your website will have a good structure.

Compatible with Yoast SEO
Support displaying Yoast SEO breadcrumbs. Breadcrumbs are a way to help your readers better navigate your site and its structure. In addition, they can appear on Google and provide a better user experience.
Translation Ready

Alpaca is translation ready. The website includes a .pot file that allows you to easily translate all of your content into different languages – every single element from the titles and content, to forms, buttons, etc. You can use Poedit or Loco Translate.

Bilingual & Multilingual

We live in a multilingual world, so offering your website in multiple language is a great way to make it more user-friendly and connect with new audiences. Alpaca is compatible with the 2 most popular multilingual WordPress plugins: Polylang & WPML, so you can easily create your multilingual site.
