Mood

Mood – An awesome WordPress theme by Pixedelic WordPress Theme Reviews

Mood is a beautiful, simply styled and authentic grid style theme that really helps make your images and content look the best they can.  When you’re in the market for a creative portfolio theme, you know there are a multitude of options for creating a great first impression.  To really make the most of WordPress, you need a layout that’s clean and modern, which is where Mood comes in.  This modern grid design has so many features that help to create a lasting impression on your readers and keep them coming back for more.  Mood is also flexible enough to allow you to create an online storefront with WooCommerce, contact form 7 and WPML for all your translation needs.  Pretty cool.

Mood uses Visual Composer to help you create the layout you want, not just what the designer says you have to have.  That’s because Visual Composer is so flexible it allows you to lay-out your website with modules that can be moved anywhere.  By the way, Visual Composer is included for free, which is a very good price.  Revolution Slider and Icon54 SVG pack are also included.  For SEO, you’ll want a fast loading theme and Mood scored a 99% page speed score from PingDom and 94% on YSlow.  That will really help your SEO efforts because fast loading sites tend to do quite well in the SERPs.  Mood is modern, elegant and a perfectly coded masterpiece of grid design that you and your readers will both love.
