Lightweight Theme Built for Speed
Inspiro is a lightweight & speed-optimized WordPress Theme. This means that the design and coding of the theme are optimized for fast loading times and efficient use of server resources. The theme has been designed and developed with performance in mind and will not cause any impact on the loading speed of the website.
Having a lightweight and speed-optimized theme can be especially important for websites that receive a large amount of traffic, as it can help ensure that the website remains accessible and responsive, even during peak traffic times. It can also be beneficial for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes, as search engines tend to favor websites that load quickly and perform well.
Frequent updates and improvements over time ensure that the theme has been developed using the best coding practices available.
We regularly update our WordPress themes, including Inspiro. Here’s what we’ve added recently…

Self-hosted and Vimeo videos will play automatically on all devices, not just on computers. https://player.vimeo.com/video/325637659?controls=1&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0
Page Builder Integration
One of the most exciting additions to Inspiro is the support for popular drag-and-drop Page Builders like Elementor and Beaver Builder. Install your preferred page builder and enjoy drag-and-drop layout customization. Inspiro is tightly integrated for ease of use.
We want to make using the drag and drop Page Builder easy for you, so we’ve included 20+ pre-built templates, which you can import to Inspiro with just one click. New templates are added with every new major update.
Below you can see a few examples of pages created using Elementor:
Inspiro boasts a fluid, responsive layout, so your website will display perfectly across mobile devices. Images and galleries scale up and down seamlessly when resizing the browser window. No matter what the resolution or screen size, every detail will look perfect and professional.
Fullscreen Slideshow with Video Background
The Homepage Slideshow supports YouTube, Vimeo, and self-hosted video backgrounds. Just enter the URL of a YouTube or Vimeo video or upload your self-hosted video, and the theme will do the rest.
Video Lightbox in Homepage Slideshow
Inspiro comes with a beautiful video lightbox integrated into the homepage slideshow where you can feature YouTube, Vimeo, and self-hosted videos.
This makes this WordPress gallery theme a great choice if you have a video of a product you want to feature on the front page. https://player.vimeo.com/video/172743649?title=0&byline=0&portrait=0
Video Background when Hovering Portfolio posts
In Inspiro, we’ve integrated another great feature for video professionals. You can assign a short video to each of your portfolio posts to play when hovering that specific post in the Portfolio gallery. See it live on the demo page.
Thanks to a new GIPHY integration that we’ve added to our theme, it’s now possible to use a YouTube or Vimeo link for the video shown on hover in the portfolio, not just self-hosted videos.
This feature will save you a lot of time, as until now, it has supported only self-hosted videos, meaning that you had to prepare and optimize the MP4 file manually. Well, now everything is done automatically for you.
You can even adjust the duration and the start point for each video.
Video Headers in Pages & Posts new
Starting with Inspiro 6.3, you can add video headers in pages, posts, and portfolio posts! You are no longer limited to beautiful video backgrounds just in the homepage slideshow. https://player.vimeo.com/video/325863691?controls=1&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0
Customize the Slideshow using the new Block Editor
In Inspiro 6.2, we’ve added Block Editor support for the Homepage Slideshow caption.
With the new editor, you have more control over text formatting, and you can even insert additional elements, like multiple buttons.
In the above example, we’ve inserted two buttons in a Column block with two columns.
Video & Image Lightbox in Portfolio Posts
You can easily display videos or images in a lightbox in Portfolio Posts everywhere: in the Portfolio archive page, in the Portfolio Showcase widget built for the homepage, in individual Portfolio posts pages.
Lightbox Feature in Portfolio Archive:
Video Lightbox in single Portfolio post:
Attaching a video to be displayed in a lightbox is very simple. You can either enter a link to a YouTube or Vimeo video or use the Self-hosted video option if you have direct links to video files hosted on your website or a dedicated video hosting:
Customize colors and fonts in the theme directly from the Theme Customizer. Thanks to the partial refresh integration, you can instantly see all the changes you make.
You can create your sidebar using available widgets. The sliding panel works great on mobile devices, too, and will display at the site navigation.
Using the Gallery feature, you can create separate posts with photos and galleries in different layouts, and have them displayed in a grid layout.
If you have Jetpack plugin installed, enable the Tiled Galleries feature, and you can create beautiful galleries in your posts:
1-Click Demo Content Install
You can replicate the demo page’s structure and look by loading the dummy content and widgets with one click.
Need to sell something? With an Inspiro theme, you can build your shop and start selling anything easily! The theme is fully compatible with the WooCommerce plugin.
