Fenix, GPL Licensed Multi Purpose WordPress Theme

Fenix is something a little bit different.  I know, you’ll look at Fenix’ design, the full screen images, the big text headlines over those images, the stylish professional or personal blog, the portfolio that’s perfect suited for creative agencies, the eCommerce shop that’s ideal for any type of products.  You’ll look at all that and say, that looks like a lot of stuff on the market.  It’s a pretty typical Multi Purpose WordPress theme.

And you’d be right.

But it’s also one of the best looking 100% GPL WordPress theme on the market.  You’ll know because it says this just under the description of the license’s available on Theme Forest.

This item is licensed 100% GPL.

So, GPL, that isn’t the case on every theme, particularly one that has this many features.  Let’s have a peek at what the theme’s developer Evolve Themes, has to say about this template.

Have you ever tried to create a website and, after hours of attempts, the end result wasn’t really what you had in mind?  Fenix is the multipurpose theme we’ve always wanted to build. Born from years of experience, Fenix goal is to provide a tool to go live quickly, with a beautiful presentation and still be easily editable.

Let’s have a look at some of the different styles that are there to be had.  A creative portfolio like Fenix is a great way to make the impression you need to.

Here’s a WooCommerce powered online store, simple looking and elegant, easy to use and easy to navigate through the process of shopping, checking out and paying for products.  It really is easy to use.

Here’s the creative agency design, I really love those bold images.  Now, you may not have such striking images, but whatever you have is going to look great.

Alright, one for the road.  This is just another look at a front page. 

Okay, so, here we go, it’s Fenix.

Six bold demo styles, classic, blogger, shopping, creative, photography and app promotions, they give you the style flexibility to make a great looking website.  Fenix is fast, it’s performance is incredible, layer slider is included, Slider Revolution too and Fenix uses the Brix Page Builder, though it works with Visual Composer and Beaver Builder, as well as Elementor.  If you prefer those page builders, you’re in luck.  If you prefer Visual Composer, I’d recommend you pick a different page builder.

With a responsive design, a classic single column blog layout, a grid blog design, sidebar layouts for every page, post formats support, the Fenix theme really adds a ton to any project.

Turka

Turka – MultiPurpose WordPress Theme – Just another WordPress site

Frankly, Turka isn’t much to look at, but it is a 100% GPL WordPress theme that’s got what it takes to make a site look quite corporate in style.  By selecting more interesting images, you can make Turka absolutely shine!

This is Turka, a clean, corporate style GPL WordPress theme from Cod3TURK, a brand new developer from ThemeForest, since this is their first theme!  I’m expectting this one to be a big hit though, since it’s well designed and plain looking enough to appeal to a wide variety of websites.

This theme is completely responsive, it’s Retina ready too, translations can be accomplished with ease, there’s an advanced Admin panel for making adjustments to the look and feel of the site.  With over 500 fonts available from Google, a ton of documentation to help get you started, demo.xml data included, this theme could be perfect for a construction company, a corporate website that needs a very flat, relatively style free design and doesn’t want to break the bank, since theprice tage is just $59 for a regular license.

Elements, you get a ton of those, that’s for sure.  Accordions, content boxes, progress icons, carousels, animated columns, pricing tables, counters, galleries, tabs , and a ton more.

Want to integrate social media?  You’re in luck, Turka does a great job with social media icons included, get your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts hooked up and start posting to your social accounts to help grow traffic and grow your business.

How about embedding or self hosting your media?  Well, Turka supports YouTube, Woo Elements, SoundCloud, Vimeo, Instagram and a whole lot more.

There are boxed layouts and full screen layouts available, which is great, since so many webmasters have a specific preference of one over the other.  The admin panel is robust, Turka is completely responsive, the business services are offered in a clean, professional and straightforward way.

All things considered, Turka is a very nice looking, professional theme and I’m sure the sales will be magnificent.
