Melaka is all about building a unique, fast, creative and professional Ghost powered website.
Built with HTML5 & CSS3, Sass, Gulp, a lot of thought and care went into this theme making it a pleasure to use and easy to customize.
### Clean Design
I love minimal and functional design as you do, so every element designed with simplicity and details in mind, and well-tailored to match your own taste.
### Fully Responsive
Melaka created from the ground up to work on different devices from mobile phones, tablets, and desktop with performance in mind.
### Translation Support
Melaka supports Ghost i18n for theme translation. Comes with German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Finnish, Dutch, and Danish translation. Easier than ever to add a new language translation.
A wide range of people have some disabilities and ignoring them will make their life harder. The web should be available to everyone whenever they are on whatever device they use.
That’s why Melaka built with Accessibility standards in mind which include using:
- The right page OUTLINE, the heading structure of the Web Page
- The right colors with no contrast issues
- HTML5 and ARIA Attributes
- Structural Elements
- Meta Tags and Page-Specific Valid Language
### Instant Search
With the search functionality, you will be able to instantly search posts and pages as you type. The supported languages in addition to English are Russian, French, Spanish, Germany, Portuguese, Italian, Finnish, Dutch and Danish.
### AJAX Posts Loading
Load more posts with a click of a button. You don’t have to click through pages. This will enhance site browsing and your user’s satisfaction.
