Infowazz, Modern Viral Content Magazine Theme

infowazz.tophot.wpengine.com-InfoWazz – Just another Your SUPER-powered WP Engine Multisite Install site

I suppose this theme is trying to cash in on the hype surrounding the site infowars (yuck!) but honestly, this theme looks nothing like the site with Alex Jones’ delusional, psychotic ramblings* but a name is a name and what’s in a name?

Created by a theme-maker called Mazda, Infowazz is a nice looking theme, I’d say.  The layout is clean, clear.  I like the promotional areas at the top, I think with the right images, this theme could really get some attention.  Blogging about or actually writing news of any kind, man the competition is high!  Celebrity gossip, breaking political events, weather reports and all of that, there are tons of sites dedicated to each one, so standing out can be a challenge.

Infowazz is responsive, it’s clean and clear in terms of layout, it’s flexible and well coded.  It’s only garnered 100 or so sales in the year it’s been out and the reviews are mixed at best, it gets a 4.2 overall rating.  Not great, but not the worst I’ve ever seen either.

* this is only my opinion.

Here’s what the developer, Mazda, says about the Infowazz WordPress theme:

InfoWazz is a WordPress theme that lets you write articles and blog posts with ease. It is fully responsive, retina ready and has many powerful features. We offer great support and friendly help!

The InfoWazz theme is excellent for a news, newspaper, magazine or publishing site. It uses the best clean SEO practices, and on top of that, it’s fast, simple, and easy to use. In addition, InfoWazz supports responsive Google Ads and AdSense.

InfoWazz theme is clean, flexible, retina ready and has a fully responsive design. InfoWazz theme is loaded with features, and has powerful customization options. Built with HTML5 & CSS3. It comes with free support on our support forum.

So, I checked out the reviews on Theme Forest, it looks like there are some issues regarding support for this theme.

Don’t purchase this theme if you expect any type of support. It will not happen. DO NOT pay for added support if you do purchase this theme.

SanaNA

So, buyer beware, this theme may not be long for this world.  Once you start losing people because you don’t support the theme, it’s a downward spiral into deletion territory.  Anyways, that’s Infowazz and I think for many, it could be a pretty solid choice for a magazine theme.  Though be prepared to support it yourself.

Pallas, eCommerce WordPress Theme for Electronics Stores

Pallas Clean and Fun WooCommerce Theme

Considering they call this a tech store theme, it sure does look like it could work for a little bit of everything.  I like the clean design, the very clear layout that actually does get a lot of information across in a very quick way.  For some WooCommerce themes, that’s a big struggle.  Not for Pallas.

Pallas has 8 pre-made layouts for a big head start in designing your website and more layouts are simple to create.  Each one responsive, mega menu compatible and user friendly.  Lots of people are looking for visual categories at the top menu and Pallas has that dialed in.  Great looking setup too, it looks really well integrated.  For products you can display them in tabs or a slider.   There’s even a daily deals module you can use to countdown specials on your site.

You need a blog?  Pallas has a blog module included too.

Using Category Tabs Slider in many places in each homepage, products in categories are displayed beautifully in slider. Also can upload category thumbnail in this module. Vertical Megamenu shows many product categories with pretty icons in vertical direction. And links Blog, Contact Us, About Us page are shown on Megamenu. Categories with thumbnail image are displayed in Category Top. New, Featured, Bestseller, Most viewed products are in Products Slider per row. Pallas is 100% responsive. Whether your customers use tablets, mobiles or desktops to access your site, they’ll all have the same consistent user experience. Google Rich Snippets are in Product page will support better for SEO. Layered Navigation in Category page helps customers filter products via attributes such as color, size, material, manufacturer,…with toolbar which you can change two modes: list or grid product view. Pallas theme bring Theme Options – an easy to use tool for you to customize color of background, text, links..your expectation.

So, does Pallas have what it takes to become a big hit on ThemeForest?  It’s hard to say, there’s so much competition nowadays, it’s going to be a big hill to climb.  Still, there’s a lot to like about this theme.  The header and footer layouts are by Visual Composer, but that shouldn’t slow your site down too much, hopefully.

Wunderkind, One Page Parallax Business WP Theme

wunderkind.wpengine.com-Wunderkind - One Page Parallax WordPress Theme Wunderkind

With Wunderkind, you get a little bit of something for everyone.

You can select from one of the eight different pre-made layouts that come packaged with the Wunderkind WordPress theme.  That means, superfast site launch.  Or, you can choose to use the bloated and poor-performing Visual Composer plug-in to change layouts to look exactly how you want them to look.

I really don’t like Visual Composer.

But, the choice is yours.  This combination of Visual Composer and pre-build designs will allow you to create a myriad of amazingly attractive web pages.  No matter what kind of content, no matter what kind of business, your posts and pages will look amazing.  

I really like the concept of a video portfolio theme website using Wunderkind.

With Wunderkind, another big feature, you do not need to know any coding or design techniques, since the premade demos look great and Visual Composer is pretty difficult to mess up.  Just adrag and drop your way to a relatively slow, bloated and poor performing website.

The intuitive Redux theme options panel can help to guide you through the process of creating a totally unique, novel and innovative website.

Wunderkind, a truly one page parallax WordPress theme with more than one face. No matter if you use it as a photographer, travel / web design agency, nonprofit / environmental organization or even as a music / video producer. You can easily turn it into your personal website.

If you do know some HTML5 or CSS3, this Wunderkind WP theme comes complete with child theme capabilities, so that any updates to the theme don’t get reverted if the developer updates some code.

That can be a life saver.

Both full width and boxed page styles are available and which you choose, well, it’s totally up to you. Other benefits of using the Wunderkind theme include full integration with hundreds of Font Awesome icons, Google Web Fonts and full app development capabilities for mobile usage. You can even attract international customers and clients with ease with the WPML translation plug-in that turns your Wunderkind WordPress theme into a global phenomenon.

wunderkind.wpengine.com-Wunderkind - One Page Parallax WordPress Theme Wunderkind

Parallax support, fullscreen sliders, unlimited colors, plenty of fonts, sidebars to either left or right as well as no sidebar options are all available.  There are video backgrounds too.

But on re-reviewing this theme nearly a year later, I see some big issues.  Even on their demo site, the thing just doesn’t look right.  That’s bad, even the developer can’t keep this theme looking proper.  They updated it six months ago or so, so they are still trying to make this theme a going concern, but I’m just not sure it’s worth it.  That may change in the future, so feel free to bookmark us and come back for more WordPress theme reviews.

Acrod, Minimalist WordPress Portfolio Template

https://topnotchthemes.com/best-wordpress-minimalist-themes/

Acrod is an effective theme, one that’s simple enough for a beginner to take full advantage of, but powerful and adaptive enough for a seasoned WordPress veteran to get the most out of it.

Acrod is simple, minimalist and multipurpose.  With Acrod, you get over 20 pre-defined layouts for posts and pages, though you can still design your own using the bundled Visual Composer.  Build a business theme, build a portfolio, even build a fully functioning WooCommerce web store.

Acrod comes packed with more features too, like Slider Revolution, dummy data, great support, lifetime updates, tons of post and page templates, an advanced Theme Options panel and a whole bunch more that I can’t even really remember.  It’s definitely worth a shot, so have a look and let us know what you think.

The developer PuriWP, says this about Acrod:

Acrod theme comes with simple and minimalist design where you can use 20+ predefined page layouts or build your own design page using Visual Composer & Slider Revolution (plugin packages included). You can use the theme to build business, corporate, ecommerce with WooCommerce plugin, portfolio, personal, blog, shop/ecommerce and any kind of websites.

Acrod has only been downloaded a handful of times so far and hasn’t been rated enough to know whether the theme is high quality or not.  But checking some reviews, I’m not feeling great about this one.  Here’s one review that was recently added to the comments section on Theme Forest.

I am very dissatisfied with this theme.  Showed error of layout and functioning in the mobile version. The support did not solve all the issue, but it took a long time to be answered.

In the mobile version the rev slider does not display the layers. The developer said it was a customization issue. I had more spending buying the rev slider plugin and support resolved and proved that the problem was on the theme.

There are gaps that cut the slide in the mobile version.

You delayed my entire project. Finally I had to give up and buy another theme to conclude.

I want a refund because the theme did not work as promised and support did not help.

Yikes!  Sounds like we’ve got a critic here!

All things considered, I’d probably not recommend this theme and tell you to avoid it.  If you feel very comfortable and you love the look, it could be worth your time though.  Another theme to consider instead is Builder.  Great reviews and tons of functionality.

Onley, Financial Consultants and Business Theme

Onley Financial Business WordPress Theme

Helping businesses find comprehensive solutions.

That may not mean a lot to you, but that’s what they said in the sales copy in the image above.  What does it mean?  Almost nothing, it’s a completely empty and pointless thing to say.  It’s pointless, almost offensively vacuous and a complete waste of time to read.  It.  Means.  Nothing.

So, why did they put it in the copy?  No clue, maybe it’s a type of greeking?  What else did the them developer have to say abou their newest creation, Onley?

Training, Coaching, Consulting & Business WordPress theme is a premium WordPress theme with its design particularly regards to Training and Coaching as well as it enables you to build a wide variety of business websites.

Have a look at some of the more meaningful features included with Olney

  • Fast, intuitive and smart page builder will make your customization fast and easy. You layout will be ready for publishing in a minute.

  • Create stunning slides with different animation effects easily with Revolution Slider.

  • The Finance is ready to use from the box. Quickly install it via FTP or WordPress and after you activate it you can load demo content. Then you can add your own content on already designed pages

  • Install Seville with our powerful one click installer. Get your site up and running in no time!

  • Quick, easy and rocket fast Look of your website on mobile devices is very important these days. So we made sure Seville looks great both on mobile, desktop and retina screens

  • Seville is compatible with most popular WordPress plugin that supports creation of multilingual layouts. Translate your website to any language with WPML.

  • Choose any of the Google web fonts library through powerful theme options panel! Now you can set a unique style for your brand.

  • Seville is compatible with the most powerful and most popular custom contact forms WordPress widget! create your own forms in seconds!

  • Seville enables you to easily override default template files using a child theme. It also enables you updating your theme in the safe way!

  • Seville is based on most popular, well established, powerful vafpress theme options framework Extensive documentation plus great video guides on how to setup and customize

  • Trucking will make your customizations super easy and fast! Seville looks great among all major browsers including IE9+.

So, they’ve managed to call this theme by three different names in that description.  The Finance.  Seville.  Trucking.  This theme is, allegedly, called Onley.   So, what’s the deal? I mean, I’ll say this, at least it doesn’t use Visual Composer.  But those are some red flags, the CTRL C/CTRL V web development doesn’t work for me.

I can’t recommend this thing, it’s a total piece of shit.  Maybe try Rebel.  Or Entrepreneur.

Salt & Pepper, Restaurant and Recipe Blog with WPML Support

Tesla Themes Salt and Peper restaurant theme

It’s been over a year now since I first reviewed Salt & Pepper, from Tesla Themes.  I decided it was time to revisit this one to see if it’s stood the test of time.

Salt and Pepper Food blog and recipe theme

Maybe it’s something where my tastes have changed or it’s just something I didn’t notice before, but I actually pretty much hate the typography in this theme.  That font, the sans serif one in titles, just doesn’t look good to me.

Salt and Pepper Theme for Recipes and Food Blogs

This is my original review of Salt & Pepper.

Say hey to Salt & Pepper, a delicious WordPress recipe blog theme from Tesla Themes.  This theme is a perfect fit for anybody who’s blogging about food, recipes, restaurants and more.  The tasty design is perfectly responsive, so it looks amazing on any sort of device, from laptop and desktop to a handheld device like a smart phone or a tablet.  That way, if you’re working in the kitchen, your readers can access your incredibly delightful recipes no matter where they are, as long as there’s an internet connection.

Salt & Pepper is the ultimate in recipe blogs for that reason and more.  Sharing cooking tips, recipes and other tidbits of content couldn’t be easier, so chefs, cooks, sous chefs, line cooks and even cooks at home, will all have access to your incredible advice, recipes and more.  There’s a recipe filter, ingredients list and more.

The clean code and helpful SEO features mean your site can rank quickly for any keyword you want to rank for.  There’s one click demo content to be installed so you can get started quickly.  Translation ready, Salt & Pepper has also been tested with the latest WPML version, so it can be translated into any language.  Even Klingon.  We tried it, it works.  Loads fast, every time.  Premium support, all day long.  Child theme friendly.  Visual Composer enabled.  This theme does it all and at a very reasonable price.

What does Tesla Themes have to say about this template of theirs?

Salt & Pepper is the ultimate recipes WordPress theme that works perfectly on mobile, tablet, and desktop.

With Salt & Pepper, sharing all your recipes and cooking tips with wide audience was never easier. This theme is perfect for chefs, cooking experts and even housewifes.

The theme includes a handy recipe filter, ingredients list and cook methods. It’s clean code and SEO optimization is written keeping in mind your sites good ranking on search engines. A One click demo install feature will help kickstart your website. Salt & Pepper allows you to easily add recipe methods and images of your recipes.

I’ve recently gone on a bit of a kick against Visual Composer and that ubiquitous plugin is included in this theme.  It’s not enough for me to completely reject it, but the fact is, it’s a definite strike against it in my book.  For recipe blogs, I still recommend it.  If you’re running a restaurant, there are better WP themes out there.
