This theme comes bundled with the Visual Composer plugin worth $25. The plugin offers a ton of shortcodes (text boxes, buttons, columns, accordions etc.) and allows you to create complex layouts in minutes.
The theme also comes with its own custom shortcodes including grid posts, related posts, vertical/horizontal posts, author info panel, clear separators, slider, carousel, isotope and logged in/out shortcodes.
Take a look at the Visual Composer in action.
