Not the best looking theme I’ve ever seen, Showcase is a responsive grid theme that’s all about selling products. What do you think about it? I don’t know, I’m a little conflicted. On the one hand, it displays a ton of products per page, which could be exactly what some webmasters want. If you’ve got tons of related products, that’s a great way to display them. However, the theme itself is soft of bland. Ugly maybe even? I simply don’t like the design, it’s not very appealing to me. But, tastes are what they are, maybe it’s perfect for somebody else out there? This theme was created by an Elite developer, An-Themes. But yeah, despite that, this theme has been downloaded only 160 times or so. Then again, the rating is a perfect 5 stars out of 11 reviews at the time of this writing, so it’s well liked by the handful of people who have chosen to review it.
Here’s what An-Themes describes this Showcase theme as.
Showcase is a responsive WordPress Grid and Masonry Blog Theme. Showcase is a tremendously intuitive, suited to be deployed for a number of different websites and projects of all kinds, but peculiarly well suited for creative websites, showcasing digital or affiliate products. Completely responsive to look perfectly in all mobile devices, easily usable with any device as well as PCs.
Oh yeah, front end submissions, that’s a nice feature. This is the description of that feature.
Submissions automatically create a post in “pending” status so that administrators can review the item before it appears on the site. An email notice is sent to the admin each time a form is successfully submitted. All Articles submitted will be in Pending, if you choose so, and every submission will be approved or rejected from WordPress Dashboard.
So, that’s it, that’s Showcase. A somewhat clumsy looking theme that performs really well. Maybe with the right CSS customization, you can totally make this theme shine!
