At Tick Tock Computers, our goal is to build you the website of your dreams. That means taking your content, color ideas, and logo, and building everything from the ground up, based on your needs. We don’t use off the shelf themes or pre-made templates. Every web site, is hand crafted and tailored based on what you tell us, and not what a theme designer has already pre-built, without knowing your goals or needs!
We design a variety of items, from web pages and logos, to business cards and letterhead, ad banners to signs and conference banners and badges, to t-shirts and more. Have a need for a new website or any graphic design work, we are here to help you! Check out our Tick Tock Computers Portfolio for samples of our work.
Note – This theme is not based on Mast, but is a stand alone theme that uses many of the same built in features. If you would like to purchase a copy of this sites theme, please use our contact form to discuss further how we can help you design a custom version, just for you!
Why choose Mast?
Mast is SEO ready, user friendly, and super easy to use! It also comes with a blank stylesheet, so you can customize this theme till your hearts content!
If you use social networking to reach your friends and clients, we’ve also got features to help link to your sites by simply adding their URL to your pages in the Mast Options Admin Panel.
How does Mast differ from other themes?
Mast tries to be as simple, and light weight as possible. Most premium themes, come with too many features, most of which are copied plug-ins and code from third party authors, which leads to security vulnerabilities.
Mast was written from the ground up, and gives you the freedom to choose how you control your site’s look and content.
How customizable is Mast? What can it do?
Mast comes with a number of built in features, based on the core of WordPress itself. In doing so, you can be assured that the functionality and security of the Mast theme, are built on a solid foundation from which you can change virtually any part of your site
In most premium themes, the Admin panels leave a lot to be desired, and can be confusing to use at times.
Simplify everything for the user!
When I was building Mast, I wanted to make things as easy to use as possible. As a WordPress user myself, I’ve grown tired of setting up Premium themes for clients only to have to try and learn how to use them to do what I want. If you already know how to use WordPress, then Mast should feel very intuitive to you.
Mast simplifies much of this by using the power of WordPress itself to let you make the changes you want to your theme. From changing your logo, to adding a background or changing the color of your background, all of this can be done from within the built in WordPress Appearance panel. We left these options under Appearance, because thats where they belong. WordPress puts these options there by default when built into a theme, but most Premium Theme Authors migrate all of their functions and code, to their own Admin Options Panel, which often tend to be overwhelming for the novice WordPress user. Simplicity and intuitive ergonomics were the reasons in why we left certain things alone and where you would expect to find them, such as the Appearance panel.
How does the Mast Options Panel work?
The Mast Options panel helps to add things which are not built directly into the base of WordPress itself. From SEO and Social Media links, to content image sliders, Mast only tries to help you fill in the blanks that ensure your site gets a better search ranking, without complicating things for the end user.
By allowing you to customize your SEO settings, you control your site’s description that shows up in search engines, to adding keywords and search phrases to help find your site, we give you control over what search engines see and list for your search results in the search engines index.
Mast also allows you to add a custom hash tag for Twitter, which can be used to allow people to Tweet your pages to Twitter, using this custom hash tag (Via the Tweet this button at the top of the page). You can tweak and change this hash tag at any time, giving you the flexibility to improve your hash tag search results on Twitter, to better serve your needs and stay up to date with trending topics.
What are some of the features of the Mast Theme?
The Mast WordPress theme supports a number of custom short codes, from Third, Half and Block short codes, we give you a number of ways to add content to your pages easily, without having to use HTML to add the content.
Mast short codes can also be used in Widgets!
This theme also comes with several page templates as well. A Home Page Template, which uses a content slider for showcasing your content or images, a Full Width Template for adding image galleries, videos and larger content, and a default right-sidebar template, that shows on all blog posts and pages set to the default page template.
We also allow the use of Featured Images for blog posts!
