Aurora v1.0.5 provides a special sidebar layout position where we've published the main menu. It can also be set to be fixed in its position. The Sidebar width can be modified from 15% to 50%. In some of our styles the sidebar layout position features background images, which can optionally be fixed. In addition, we provide a subtle parallax scrolling effect for the images.
As mentioned above, Aurora is the first theme which applies Widgetkit 2. We have also added a Bonus Grid Widget for Aurora. The grid features a nice overlay caption effect for image elements in grid items. Just select "Above" or "Below" the title to align media and it will work automatically.
